The sea front was packed too, though the crowds thinned out a bit towards the far end of the north bay.
And if you don't like crowds, just climb. We went up to the castle and ate lunch looking out over the bay.
On the way back down, we visited Ann Bronte's grave. The grave stones are not in bad shape considering the battering they must get in the sea air. It's a lovely hillside setting.
My kingdom for a horse?
