An now your kids can follow in your footsteps and be entertained as they discover an abundance of life in the little rock pools that form when the tide goes out on East Beach.

Just off the high street within the beautiful walled garden space of Lauderdale Park is an excellent kids playpark with a lovely cafe so you get the best of both worlds. The kids have something to do and you can recharge with a delicious dose of caffeine.
