A great little town on the way up again. Sea front being developed, great little hotels (The Lighthouse Hotel) and great friendly eateries (Evan's Bistro). Only ever see happy, smiley people here. I may just move here......despite the North Sea 'breeze'!

Came with the ferry from Amsterdam and decided to stay a couple of nights in WB. Definitely worth a visit. Take a walk along the seafront and inhale the fresh air.
