... managed to park close to the city centre enabling us to walk through - different when there is no snow lying around. Looking for a coffee shop we found the covered market, actually full of busy city people taking lunch and a superb range to fish for sale. In fact this is the biggest covered market in Scandinavia, according to Pinterest - more research to check this ...
... in the Finnair lounge which is quite good but always very busy. A very nice range of food, mainly salads but good variety.
After a smooth flight we arrived at Heathrow about 30 minutes late. I was expecting to be late home but I easily caught a Heathrow Express and just caught the 1940 from St Pancras getting me home when I expected and, in fact less than 2 hours from the wheels of the plane touching down on the runway.

Dinner was in the same shopping mall at Manhattan for steak. I bought another postcard at the Moomin shop.

Some more practical information about Tampere: The railway station is in the downtown and it is very easy to locate it. Public toilets are usually not free, but in the city centre I was able to find one that was open (accidentally, maybe??) There is also no need to make reservation for the night trains from Tampere to the North.
