  • If your into photography, shopping or industrial history this place has a lot to offer. We spent the best part of a day here. See photos ! The shops were offering greatly reduced prices on end of rang...  more »
  • Lovely visit and very historic. Nice to read about the history as we walked around. Obviously a lot of money spent on regeneration and well worth it. We would certainly return. 
  • Lots to do, great shopping, fabulous restaurants (even on barges) a stunning place no matter what the weather

  • A lot of money, time and effort must have gone into restoring and updating this area. It's a good place to meander round and enjoy some industrial architecture and see some old seafaring vessels, some of which are being restored in dry docks.
  • Nice open spaces in main square. Plenty of shops, cafés and pubs.
  • Nice place to walk around and see the boats. Kept us entertained walking around there.
  • Excellent family day out, with or without a boat. Educational and nice range of shops. Plenty to see.
  • Nice place to walk about with kids planty things to do and where to go
