The Historic quarter is quite small and best explored on foot. I was very surprised at the quality of the houses which are numerous and have beautiful gardens.Some of the houses are a little quirky which adds to the overall experience. Well worth visiting.

We rode through the district on bikes, looking at the beautiful homes, and pretending to each pick one out for ourselves. We had a picnic at a small park. It was a sunny fun filled day. Streets were quiet, traveling back in time.
