Well worth a visit if you are touring “the City”. Wonderful architecture to take in as you stroll the market which dates back to the 14th Century. This is a place to eat and drink as opposed to shops unless you are looking for fresh...More

In the heart of the city. Covered area Beside Lloyds of London with restaurants and bars. Great buzz and hive of activity. Recommended for a visit.

We came upon this by chance after wandering around some of the futuristic buildings of the city. Lovely quaint old shop fronts housing great restaurants and shops! Absolute contrast to its neighbours.
