  • It was cold and rainy when we got to the docks. The waterways museum and military museum were closed. No idea about the shops. I suspect on a better day it would have been great to wander around...

  • I had a wander around the docks which I found to be a pleasant historic area. I did not venture into the shopping arcade. The museums were closed at the time unfortunately.
