Although not the biggest park around, Kelsey Park is a peaceful, leafy spot with a large pond and a cafe. A great place to bring the kids, where they can run around the playground.

If you're looking for a tasty white hot chocolate whilst you get lost in a good book, a £5 English breakfast to cure your ills from the night before, a place to take the kids whilst you catch up with friends and loved ones, or a great daytime into nighttime date location, then Deli Nene is the place to go.
