Continuing west, I reached St. Giles Cathedral just minutes before it closed for the day. They usually charge a fee for taking photographs, but didn't because I had so little time.
After doing some window shopping to kill time until 5:30, I went to Creelers Restaurant, but the web listing for the restaurant is wrong and it doesn't open until 6PM.
Not wanting to wait, I walked back toward my hotel and stopped at Fishers in the City. They had a table, if I could be done in an hour. Dinner was a large bowl of fish soup (chowder with large chunks of fish and potato), followed by a heaping bowl of small mussels, washed down with a couple of bottles of Blackthorn Cider.
I finished most of the mussels and a man sitting at the table next to me said, "Well done!"
It was just another 6 blocks to the hotel. Before checking in and collecting my bags, I stopped to check email and buy some Merrydown Vintage Cider to enjoy in the room.
