Nothing special, no real view lol. No shopping, just bars and restaurants.... if it's food or drink you want, this is the place... I would imagine a good atmosphere in the summer evenings. Also has cinema and bowling.

It is worth to visit the Bay for its large variety of pubs and restaurants and the nice view. It is close to the city centre and in the area are many turistical spots as well.

Always busy with events. A 5k run was taking place with Lee Selby starting the race. The children loved the lights and and sounds around the bay as the evening drew to a close. Plenty of places to eat and enjoy.
