It also has a large tourism industry with lots of hotels, B & B and self catering available. Always a big increase in people at weekend with day trips and special event weekends such as Regatta, Northern Soul, 60's, Goth (two) and Pirates.

4. Up the town town con't
Around this corner (or out the side stairs) from The Resolution is The Elsinore. Down and across is The Little Angel. Turn right round The Little Angel and walk down Brunswick St and go first left at the church. Along here is the front of The George Hotel. Come out the rear of The George Hotel and cross over to Windsor Crescent. Walk up Windsor Terrace which is the road between the bus station and the railway station. When it splits take the right hand side which leads to North Rd (a steep hill). Take the third left - 1st is Esk Ter. then Park Ter then go down the road with no name(!). If you reach Elgin Ter you have missed it. At the end of this 3rd road is First In Last Out.
Returning to the station walk onto the platform and find The Waiting Room micro pub. Cross over the road and walk away from The George to reach The Station Inn.

You can't be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline — it helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer
