Great free spot in the heart of downtown, must come early to get one of the limited spots. The bathrooms were not bad but they do not stay open 24/7, also no showers or water fill up.

Pretty basic carpark behind the Information Centre. The carpark is tarred, and big enough to manoeuvre the camper. Very basic, but free! The down side was the group of drunk people that emerged from (I'm guessing) a near by pub around midnight. It was pretty noisy for a while, but it was a Saturday night... Loses points due to the drunken fools bashing on my camper door at 1am. :(
