  • Visited for the music and arts festival, was a good set up and with free entrance. Located next to gunwhalf and on the beach. It was a nice place to spend a couple of hours
  • The Square Tower is a beautifully atmospheric historic building and a great venue - I booked it for a rare live art performance - wonderful! Steve couldn't do enough to make sure it all went well. I've also visited the weekend craft market inside. There is also the Round Tower nearby and Hotwalls artists studios - the whole area is fabulous. Highly recommended.
  • A wonderful combination of historic monument, cafe and music venue.
  • Nice walk along the seaside and nice views from this place. Might get very windy and cold in winters.
  • Had a fantastic evening here watching a live performance by Megan Linford. Great venue and had a great time!
