Another nine pubs to visit.

Walk through Cape and exit by the other door to find, almost next door, The Corn Exchange. leaving here continue along and turn left and go down a hill path to The City Walls.
 After The City Walls walk down to and cross the road to go along Allan Park which leads to The Allan Park Hotel at the end of the road. From here continue along the road (now turing at a right angle). This takes you back to a main road (Port St). Walk up here to the left and across the road at the cornern are two bars. The first is Porters Bar. Leaving here turn right down Upper Craigs and on the opposite isde is an alley entrance to The Kilted Kangaroo (or Outback). The bar is through the alley. You can now return to the corner and visit Port Customs Bar. On the corner oposite is The Filling Station.
Turn into the pedestrian area go along this and follow it up to the right to find The Golden Lion Hotel and just after that, the last on our tour, Budda Bar and Kitchen.
Go through the Arcade next to Budda Bar and it takes you out to a roundabout on the main road. The station is down the road in front of you.
