Overall Guide : Scruffy dump going downhill I hate it!! Town Centre and market not worth looking at, very little work opportunities, nothing of interest with total disruption and chaos in the rush hour due to Tram extensions. Not worth a visit in... more my opinion and I live here (unfortunately!!)
