Getting off the bus. To noisy with the shouting from the entertainer. We had already done the city bus your and this was just another city bus tour. Didn't expect it to be frightening just funny, it wasn't.

Double decker bus fun. Very good bus conductor who narrated our way around the city. He was the lynch pin that kept it all together. We had to get off at one point which we weren’t aware of but that was fine. Learnt some interesting facts and revisited the Shambles the next day to see it again. Recommend.
