George Town Street View: Nagore Mews

Nagore Mews

Nagore Mews consist of a number of old houses which were then converted from mews. There are three rows of such houses in the area, with two floors for each row. The mews were abandoned for quite some time until they were being bought over. They were also used as the locations for the Urban Xchange Street Art exhibition. Currently, street stalls selling food and stuff can be found populating the once abandoned lots. The mews are located at along Nagore Road, George Town.
