Advantages: The sea and the shops
Disadvantages: The traffic
It is true there used to be nothing to do in Barrow but now they have Portland Walk a shopping area with Debenhams Ottakars books Electronic Boutique Andys records Boots Littlewoods WH Smiths the only problem is it is uncovered and it does occasionly rain in Barrow! Hollywood Park is where you find the Appollo cinema Canons healthclub the looks quite good actually bingo place and all the usual fast food places for burgers pizzas chicken. Near by is Channelside haven a lovely walk way by the channel and the Dock museum a very striking looking building and a very interesting place with not only Barrows story but local art exhibitions and lots of shipbuilding history there is also a good and popular childrens play area outside. Then of course Barrow has lots of sea which is lovely to walk by and the lakes and Dalton wild animal park near by.
