  • Beautiful gardens. Wonderful wildlife and such lovely, clear water in the river. Maintained very well and a lovely place to walk through to get to the city centre.  more »

  • A beautiful Riverside park. The top end (next to the Westgate Towers) is well planted with flowers and unusual plants. The bottom end is devoted to a wide range of play equipment for children and adults alike. Beyond that you will find the start of a lovely off-road cycle/walking path. There are lots of different sections to this park and there is something for everyone. It is most beautiful during late spring and early summer but it is still lovely the rest of the year.
  • Just the right way to spend a relaxing hour or so during a busy day being a tourist. You can choose to have commentary by your boatman or simply enjoy the serenity of gliding quietly over the water and enjoying nature and architecture. Mo was a friendly and capable guide he certainly enhanced an already delightful experience.
