A great location to spend either Lunch and easy walk the old town and leant the site history. Or have fish and chip on the shore side.

This is a great resource for visitors and a cute little gift shop. They offer really awesome tours about the area through here as well. I have attended the evening Ghost Tour and absolutely loved it! Very affordable tickets and great for a date night in old town.
