Review summary

Liverpool, Dublin, Belfast and Edinburgh were all cities where Hop On Hop Off buses were available to explore the city, and this proved an excellent way to see as much of each one as was practical, with plenty of opportunities to take good photos. The smaller towns were fun to explore on foot, and very interesting too. Dundee, in Scotland, had opened its brand-new and already famous Museum of Design 11 days before our visit, and it was a thrill to visit it. We've now got a much better feel for the historical complexities which gave rise to the union of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, and found the people there to be very friendly.
