Thank you for the tour Mark.
Some great little art spots, most of them I didn’t even know existed and the ones I did know of, hadn’t been to yet. Added bonus of sharing your knowledge of the history of the buildings and public arts and spaces along the way. A great way to spend a couple of hours on a Saturday morning and learnt a bit more about this wonderful little city.
Not to mention met a wonderful group of people, all art enthusiasts themselves. Looking forward to the next tour.
