This was a must for me, having seen the containers on the road and rail;; so lets see how they come into the Country. Large ships, big cranes and lots and lots of coloured containers. Yes and interesting visit, with a little café on site.

Well worth a visit to watch all the large container boats coming in and departing the port. There is also a foot Ferry to catch during the summer, and a cafe for a cuppa!!
