We found that a circuit of the docks is on the level. It must be one of the best wheelchair-user rides in the country. We are interested in boats and Tommi Nielsen's boat yard, where tall ships are cared for, was a star attraction.

Visited here on a Sunday morning. Not too busy. Had a lovely walk around the docks. Went into the designer outlet shops on the way back. Car parks around there very busy but we managed to find a place.

We strolled around here, and really liked the old buildings, coupled with the new restaurants and shops in the old façards. There are some lovely old boats there too.

What a lovely view!! Loved the boat but we didn't do the boat tour as it was 45 minutes and we wanted to explore a bit more as our time was limited. But we did go inside the boat cafe and had a hot chocolate. Was really cosy and lovely!
