There is a famous bridge called Highbridge near the hotel that they are supposed to reopen as a pedestrian and bike bridge. I don’t think it’s open yet, but if it were, in the summer, it would make the trip a nice walk and I wouldn’t need a bus at all.

I don’t know if I feel any safer for it, but theere is a large police station right next door to the hotel! You have to walk in the street because all the sidewalk is full of police cars!
