It’s a nice place to walk along the docks and see all the different types of boat. There are lots of restaurants and bars along the walk. You can use a taxi Boat to cross the river if you get a little tired.

A great place for a nice walk along the water. Sometimes it's a bit industrial away from the water but there's plenty of bars and cafes along the way and a great place to see some of the local boats.
