  • Museum of contemporary Art, created in 1961 from a private initiative, housed in a former industrial building at the port. Many avant-garde art expressions. Video, photography, objects.

  • Great harbour side cafe/bar - perfect for summer afternoons sat outside in the sunshine. Decent selection of beer including Bristol Beer Factory. Can get busy in summer
