It is only worth a visit if you are in the city and want something to eat during the day, at night it is more interesting place to eat, I work in the city so would only go there for a walk as there is not much to see so only worth it if you are comming into the city,... More

This is a lovely street to stroll in, just off the hustle and bustle of Queen Street. It is tree lined and boasts many shops and lovely bars. A good night life street.

Have always loved Vulcan Lane in the city. Lovely to stroll and look at the shops, plus lovely cafes for eating. Much nicer than Queen st!

Very adorable place to shop and eat. Also a great place to grab a pint at a number of their local watering holes. Worth the trip.

Very nice street in a busy city. There are lots of restaurants and pubs to sit and watch the world go by.
