The Craft Village is located within the walls in a very accessible but slightly hidden location, it has an entrance on Shipquay Street and two next to the walls on Magazine Street. Despite being in the busiest area of the city, it feels completely detached from the rest of the city and much more tranquil.
The Village is a reconstruction of an 18th century street and 19th Century Square with a Dickensian appearance. The village contains a mixture of craft shops, balconied apartments, coffee shops, souvenir shops and a licensed restaurant. The canopied square and thatched roof cottage are used to host local community events and cultural events.
The eclectic selection of businesses, make it the best place in the city to buy souvenirs as they contain a diverse selection of local items including many handmade gifts and souvenirs and it is an essential stop for visitors to the city.
