  • Near shops and restaurants and fine hotels. Great views and easy walking along the river. Eden Court Theatre and Castle on the riverside. 
  • A nice walk near the town centre be sure to visit the islands for the best part of the walk through the trees 
  • Great place for a walk with the family or by your self, walking the dogs is very good as well, the dog loves the walk and the fresh air.
