Market Square

Lonely Planet review

Markets were first held here in 1219, and the square still bustles with traders every Tuesday and Saturday (from 8am to 4pm), when you can pick up anything from fresh fish to discount watches. The narrow lanes surrounding the square reveal their medieval specialities: Oatmeal Row, Fish Row and Silver St. The 15th-century Poultry Cross is the last of four market crosses that once stood on the square.
