The Old Town never fails to bring a smile to my face. My whole family love this place, and we are blessed to live in the town so we can visit the Old Town whenever we like. The shops are AMAZING! It's a true little treasure tucked away on the coast,

We've been many times before, but it still holds its charm. All kinds of shops big and small full of interesting artefacts, furniture and books. It's difficult to visit without buying something!

Tons of food and great pubs available. Cute little shops and a great atmosphere for couples and groups. Great for a sunny day stroll or a weekend party. There always seems to be a festival going on, with Jack in the Green in May and Bonfire in October topping the charts.

Home to a thriving artsy community, with plenty of cafés, restaurants and independent shops. Well worth a visit in tandem with the seafront experience.

Pleasant to wander around, the Indian shop owned by Gina is particularly pleasant and reasonably priced - some great coffee houses too

A fab place simply to wander. But ensure you have a bit of cash to splash, for the Old Town has some fabulous independently owned shops and restaurants. And the place is awash with some fabulous and talented eccentrics. Go see! And don't miss the little independent cinema for some fab off-beat movies!
