A lovely calming little quay, there was lots of activity whilst we were there, a nice little cafe and art gallery close by, boat trips and boat hire is also available. A nice place to sit and watch the world.

…seemingly as popular with the many swans, ducks and gulls as it is with the visitors. There always seems to be something going on amongst the boats, boat trips and passing paddle boarders. A delight at any time but, on a sunny day in early...More
