A great place to take the kids even the youngest for an enjoyable walk. Lots of buskers and entertainment, the river activity, the lights and crown flames at night and a multitude of fantastic resteraunts and cafes to stop at.

Of all the recent riverfront developments, this is one of the best versions. Mainly high end shops and restaurants but also apartments and some ordinary places to create a mix. Spans both sides of Yara River.

Great for a walk on a sunny day. Lots of bars and Crown is obviously on the South Bank. Take a walk around the Botanical Gardens (which are World Class) and then walk alongside the river.
