This is the quiet time. None of the shops/restaurants were open on the recent Sunday afternoon, but it is still a beautiful place to walk and enjoy the scenery. The Marginal Way was a bit snow covered so not a good time to walk unless one had cleats.

Put this on a must do list if you come here. Nice relaxing walk with pretty views. Beautiful gardens near hotels( in season). Benches to rest if you tire, small beaches if tide is out.

I visited with my kids in September. Parking is expensive, but it is there ($20 for few hours). We came in on the trolley which is much cheaper and was convenient. And we also walked in along the marginal way from our hotel. There are small shops (many) and you are on the water. there is a pretty drawbridge and... More
