The shipwreck centre is very small with not too much to view and quite pricey but within the location there are excellent shops and a lovely pub

Lovely pub, lovely grub. Lots to choose from on the menu. The food came out quickly and was really nice. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Lots of families in here. Definitely recommend a visit.

On the face of it, perhaps a bit of a quirky choice... but actually we had a really great time here - with the boys especially liking the quiz/treasure hunt around the shipwreck centre! xx
