Reading Tips

Some of the countryside surrounding the town is glorious. Get out and have a look at some of the villages - Eric

Traffic here is ludicrous. Avoid generally, but if you have to you will get caught up in the monstrous one-way system inner ring road (known as IDR)! And if you donít know where youíre going, you might miss the actual shopping centre Ė sounds silly but believe me itís possible!!!!! - Cathryn
