  • Some interesting shops, pewter tankards was a highlight. Some nice little pubs in this area with a nice atmosphere.

  • A pleasant enough place to walk through and have a look but the shops are relatively touristy. If you are really after some local craft, you would be better finding some specialty shops. Having said that, it is convenient having everything in the one place and there are some nice things here if you look beyond the non-local mass-produced stuff that some shops are trying to sell.
  • Medieval village with small craft shops and restaurants.
  • Great for a day trip.
