The City center has many trendy coffee shops and specialist eateries to choose from. I go there for my Christmas shopping as the atmosphere's lovely, including the European Fair (1 month long) mulled wine and plenty of extras including beautiful lights and traditional Christmas Carols. The Cathedral is AMAZING! It is truly a MUST SEE!
We also took our young baby last year and found all the shops easily accessible with our pram whilst the people were very friendly and helpful.
