  • I didn't really know what to expect here but it was an amazing place: loads of varied artwork to buy and just look at. It's also really affordable so you might just end up buying a tonne of stuff! 
  • Great place to pick up art pieces. Bargain unless they say firm. Cute for a half day of walking and shopping. If you have lots of time you can also have paintings made. 
  • Here you can find a lot of 'copies' of well known paintings and original art. It is worth a visit. And paintings are cheap.
