Things to do:

A fleet of rather brutal-looking amphibious vehicles operate what is, undoubtedly, the most enjoyable tour of the city. Beginning in the Albert Dock (Gower Street bus stop), these bright yellow boat-busses amble you around the city, taking in the major sights, before returning to the waterfront, and splashing down a ramp into the cool waters of the Salthouse Dock. On her Diamond Jubilee tour Her Majesty the Queen donned her plastic kagoule to sample the ride herself. It was hard to tell if she was amused. It often is, isn’t it?
