Whereas some people's work tends to take them to exciting glamorous destinations, my profession is inherently more 'earthy'.

I know my way around the north west of England one pollution problem at a time.

So it's a pleasant change for once to get away to a conference located in the sort of city that is more usually associated with city breaks for sight seeing tourists.

Obviously I'm mainly seeing the inside of the Hilton hotel, but the evenings provide the odd spare hour which can be used for exploring.

Looking out my hotel room window I can just see the famous tower stretching up above the surrounding district.

If the conference finishes promptly, maybe I'll find time to get up the tower myself.

Or maybe a ride on a donkey?
