Just back from a weekend in Manchester, 2 hours north of London by train,
with lots of Christmas Markets ( basically lots of eating and and hot mulled gin and wine drinking) ...it was a very bustling city. Above are the Piccadilly Rats, a warm welcome exiting the train station....says alot, but you got to love it!
The architecture was a beautiful mix of old and new all sandwiched together, clearly lots of
money invested to improve this working class city. The canals , seemed to be underutilized and underdeveloped, compared to the London canals, but beautiful never the less.
Amazing cathedral, THE BELLS!!!
