Congratulation and we all really proud of you. :D

Back to Manchester

Just happened that my colleague wanted to go to Manchester so I went along.

Start off from Victoria Bridge.

UK - Birmingham

I believe there are more attraction in Birmingham but I still find the shopping area Bullring is where I will spend most of my time.

The Museum.

The statue on the wall.

Victoria Square.

My favorite photo. Near the entrance to a church.

The bull marks the shopping area. Won't be missed.

Birmingham landmark.

UK - Manchester

Although the return train ticket cost 17 pound, I went to Manchester anyway. I took the morning train from Harrogate, switched at Leeds station and arrived to Manchester after 2 hours.

One thing I don't really like about the train station is that the train schedule does not reflect much on the sign board. It all announced by the control center, which I find it hard to know what platform/train should I be waiting. Seems like people in UK prefer listening than reading.

Manchester train station.

Hilton Hotel. Tallest building in Manchester.

Inside Museum of Science and Industry.

Inside Aviation Museum.

The library.

City town hall.

One of my favorite photo. A statue beside the wall of the city town hall.
