UK Day 19,

In Plymouth tonight. According to my Lonely Planet guide, there's not much left of the original city after the Luftwaffe redecorated it, but what is left, around the Barbican, is pretty stunning. Narrow cobbled streets that had us wondering how on earth you'd ever get your furniture in!

Pretty houses on Artillery Road, painted in gelato colours:

And a beautiful mosaic, on a wall behind the aquarium -

Plymouth really is worth exploring, it's a lovely place steeped in history.

England is playing a World Cup match tonight so we had an early dinner and came back to our room, as the pubs were filling rapidly and the noise levels rising.
