Wick Heritage Centre Review

To learn how this town grew, visit the Wick Heritage Centre. The locals who run it are real enthusiasts, and they will take you through the history of the town from its founding by the Vikings through its heyday as a leading herring port in the 1860s. The collection includes everything from fascinating fossils to 19th-century toys. There's also an art gallery and terraced gardens that overlook the town.
