This was my favorite place in Wales. Follow the signs off of the A487 highway before Newport, and you'll find yourself on a narrow little road overgrown with trees and bushes. You'll soon reach the parking area. Open the gate, and walk out into...

16B Electric Ave, Brixton, London SW9 8JX, UK
In South London, just off the Victoria line, there's a one-stop-shop for all your boozing and dining desires. But unlike Borough, this isn't a market from which you walk, wait in line, and then eat while standing and walking and waiting some more....
