Anniversary Weekend in Manchester - Friday

Not quite what our room looked like...but close! On Sunday, it's our Anniversary and we're celebrating 24 years.

Part of the celebration was travelling up to Manchester (by train from Rugby) and checking into The ABode, a new 'boutique' style hotel very close to Manchester Piccadilly. We caught the 10.47 and arrived in Manchester at 1pm. After checking-in, we started to look around for the final Christmas Pressies. Manchester looks great for shopping!!! In spite of the yukky weather, we got a lot done - and we'll finish off tomorrow!

We headed back to the Hotel and put our feet-up and decided to try the Cafe-Bar for our evening meal. The food was good but not outstanding and there was initially a problem in finding us a table because the whole place had been handed-over to a private function
