If you are reasonably fit,this is a must see,so much history here and its a good way to start seeing the city centre from a height walking along the old city walls.
Walked along these impressive city walls, which sit upon foundations laid by the Romans. The walls provide a good way to get around the city, while providing a great view at the same time.
Definitely worth downloading one of the wall descriptions before you go so you can appreciate it properly. It was a rainy day so needed to take extra precautions. Loved it.
Some good views, interesting walk. Do it, you probably would benefit more from walking round the city than eating cake in it!
