Beautiful city, so many tourists though. We were able to see the Minster and lots of pretty little 'Harry Potter' streets, but were bumped about by oblivious Oriental sightsee-ers.

Hi Jo - glad you enjoyed it: I'm sorry the Shambles does get a little crowded, but of course that's the street everyone wants to see, so we couldn't miss that out ... All best Alfred

Hi Phil - always a pleasure to have visitors from the Red Rose county. I sometimes end up on the wrong side of the Pennines myself Alfred
