We caught the train in, a frequent, fast, cheap, no-graffiti, light-rail, with free wifi, which took us into the very centre of the city. This was public transport far superior to ours in Ballarat, Melbourne, and the rest of Australia. It was easy for a visitor to buy a ticket.
Who doesn’t enjoy whimsical misericord carvings? One seat in Manchester Cathedral has a gang of bunny-rabbits roasting a hunter over a spit.
