We've booked a stay for five nights in the Radisson over Xmas itself.
Any suggestions/tips very welcome. Obviously the Cathedral, The Castle (if it is open over Xmas?) and relaxing in our room and pool (hopefully, it is open most days).
We are coming by train so I imagine we cannot really venture much outside the City by public transport given the Bank Holidays, weather, etc, but it would be nice to do a day trip if the weather is ok and trains/buses are available.
I like real ale - preferably in quiteish historic pubs. Any folk music type places? Hidden architectural gems? Recommended restaurants?
Many thanks for your time.
