History Museum
“down the road, very cute, Sigmund freud's old home and museum dedicated to him”

Movie Theatre
“This is also a lovely cinema. There is only one screen so less options. It only has mainstream movies and the seating options are either armchairs or sofas. They serve food, drinks, cups of tea and bring them to your seat. ”

  • 20 locals recommend
Café
$$
“A hybrid Aussie meets British cafe, Ginger & White have all the usual cafe classics but they’ve given them an farmer’s market style makeover. Think locally sourced, hand roasted beans and homemade cupcakes, daily changing lunch menus and they also serve wine.”

Museum
“I’m not a massive fan of Keats, but I love his Regency villa, now a museum. Virginia Woolf’s essay Great Men’s Houses takes you on a tour of Keats’s residence. Her language totally breathes life into the dusty furniture. Take a copy of it to read on the spot. There are special events all year based on Keats’s Romantic poetry. Check out the faery-themed family day or the Valentine’s night with poetry readings, live jazz, and pop-up bar.”
