The city has developed into a popular destination for hen and stag parties due to its legendary nightlife but the city also has a more sophisticated side with art galleries, museums and quality restaurants.

Take a stroll down Grey Street which is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful streets in Britain. The Theatre Royal is the jewel in the street’s crown amongst a host of other magnificent buildings.
