Customer Travel Tip: You can leave your lugguage at the station for just 2 £ per day!

Liked: I loved the feel of the old town, the amazing castle and museum. It's small enough to explore on foot and quirky enough to offer a new insight every time one turns a corner.

Disliked: Not really. It's a small english town at the end of the day, with all it's advantages and disadvantages.
