Harvey Nichols is a must. Very different to other department stores. All the staff help each other & nothing is too much trouble. We shopped, had our nails & face done & then ate in the restaurant - absolutely perfect

When at the Arena for Caro Emerald's concert the lower steps have no hand rail and a kind gentlemen helped me down to my seat and a helpful lady helped me up the steps afterwards both were spontaneous. Also at the concert I met a friendly couple who bought me a couple of drinks as my flask had been confiscated and they were great company all evening

By vising the Cathedral, we were fortunate enough to arrive when an ordination was taking place and were able to stand and watch the proceedings. We also returned later in the day when it was quieter and a 30 min play was about to start which was wonderful.

Excellent venue for theatres, arena, good transport, rail, trams. Restaurant were within easy walking distant, good variety of cuisine. We were approached on two separate occasions by official guides around the city. Asking us were we lost, and did we need any help. (They did say and show us they were official, saying there are many of them around ) This was brilliant, we have never met guides before in any city.
