Route from Maxi’s

After the Friday night dinner at Maxi’s you’ll almost certainly want to head into the city centre. Fortunately this does not involve going back the way we came, so you don’t need to contemplate climbing those in the dark after a few drinks, and the route to the centre is fairly obvious, if a little boring.

The directions below go to Whitelock’s, a fine real ale pub (established 1715) in the city, but the first few stages will be useful even if you’ve got plans for elsewhere.

Come out the front of Maxi’s and veer slightly to the left, across the carpark. Then take a few deep breaths and try to walk straight instead, cos we’re never going to get there if you keep veering like that. Head for the main road:

Cross the road at the crossing, heading towards the casino:

When you reach the far side don’t actually go in the casino (it’s members only, and anyway they wouldn’t let you in dressed like that) but turn left so you’re walking along this pavement:

Keep going. At the end of the pavement is a crossing. Cross, then head under the bridge with the blue bits on:

You’re now on Wellington Street, which is going straight into the city centre. Keep going, over this junction:

Pass the Wellington pub on the left:

Go past this Italian restuarant, too:

And eventually the city centre is in sight. Here we’re just skimming past the side entrance to the railway station on the right:

If you’re coming to Whitelocks then just keep heading straight on a little longer, to the right of the big white tower in the above photo, which is actually a hotel, down Boar Lane. You can just see the bottom of that hotel in the top left corner of this photo (behind the bus):

Cross over to the left of Boar Lane, and head on a little farther, passing the very turqoise Squares bar on the left, and then a Next clearance shop:

Just after Next, and before Trinity Church, there’s this paved path up a ramp to the left:

Go up the ramp, then head towards the far left corner of the little tiled square place you now find yourself in:

Head down that passage (to the left of The Body Shop) then turn right at the next passage so you’re heading in this direction:

Get out of the maze of twisty passages (though actually if you come back here when you’re sober you’ll be surprised to learn that they aren’t twisty at all) by going straight on, towards Marks & Spencer. A little to the left of Marks and Spencer is this shoe shop:

Whitelock’s is concealed down the alleyway shown in the above photo: go under the black sign that says “Whitelock’s” on it in gold writing. Yes, it seems like a very grotty alleyway and an odd place to put a pub. But really, it is down there, and a very lovely (and reasonably priced) pub it is too, with lots of picnic tables to for sitting outside.
