The bustling town centre boasts a selection of high street shops and shopping centres, as well as independent boutiques for those looking for something a bit special. The town has both an indoor and outdoor market with lots of locally grown and seasonal produce – the outdoor market offers fresh fruit and veg, as well as independent stalls selling unique arts and crafts.
Take the children ice skating, to the cinema, or the leisure centre, and enjoy a relaxing coffee and cake in one of the cafés. For an evening out, book a show at the Prince of Wales Theatre or visit one of the local real ale pubs (some have live music). There are also many restaurants in the town centre offering a variety of culinary styles.
For those who prefer a more tranquil, meditative trip, a gentle walk in the German Military Cemetery is a must, it’s a hidden gem with beautifully maintained grounds and a peaceful atmosphere.
