There is a friendly 'village feel' about the local area. There is a rich heritage to the area and the name Portobello, meaning beautiful port, is justly given. The level promenade was created in 1876 and you can enjoy an easy stroll and the views day or evening. There are many buildings of interest and there is a heritage trail detailing the ceramics history and places of interest such as the Coads stone pillars in the Community Garden at the promenade.
