About the neighbourhood
Ship Ahoy is located in a quiet street off the Quay. Set back a little from the street makes the apartment great for watching the world go by.
There are plenty of events throughout the year in the village, e.g. Regatta Week, as well as the world famous Book Festival, which are really enjoyable and bring lots of visitors to the area.
