Anyway, im going to manchester to take some pics. Then the day after on wednesday, im off to Metrocentre (nr newcastle) and im traveing round that area for most of the day ect.

Go to Manchester Piccadilly, but do not phot the 185s from there, as the light is bad, and pictures are not very good. I would suggest buying a return ticket to Levenshulme or Heaton Chapel (about 2 miles from Piccadilly), as you can get great shots from there. It should be about £1.25 return for a child ;)

185 at Levenshulme:
