Had a lovely walk into the city. Walked down to the river hoping to walk along its bank, but could not get down on the side we were at so walked back up.

Lovely hotel, ideally located to trams and train station. Shops etc in easy reach. Great standard of hotel and the travel pass which was included with our rate also made things just that little bit cheaper in an expensive city.
