It's an arcade, bazaar/ market, food center, LGBTQ village all rolled into one. Kid friendly. The Spar is great with its cheap drinks and clean layout. There are trampolines available for more vigorous fun.

This place is a lot of fun! It’s a mainly LGBT destination, so if you’re thinking it as a spot for a family holiday then it may not be exactly what you’re expecting, but there is something for everyone. Lots of shops selling bits and bobs. Lots of places to eat, but mainly in the evening it livens up when all the bars open. It caters for all tastes, drag bars, men only bars. It’s very friendly and I’ve always had a laugh here. Made some friends and always enjoyed myself. Forgot to take many photos but here’s one!
