Visiting Salford

Anne and I visited Salford recently, to see our son Robin who is at university there.

We stayed at a hotel called StayInn. The room was comfortable and the welcome from the staff was fine. The food though, both dinner and breakfast, was disappointing, and we felt that we should have found a restaurant at night and a cafe in the morning.

It was a relatively short walk, both from the hotel and from where Robin is living, into Manchester City Centre, although true to form it poured with rain while we were here. I`m sure it doesn`t really always rain in Manchester.

We visited Salford Cathedral (Catholic) and Manchester Cathedral, and Robin showed us some of his favourite shops, including an amazing record shop called Fopp.

It was very nice to see Robin.
