Customer Travel Tip: For parklife- maybe use a bus instead of tram- it's more expensive (not covered by travel pass) and a little longer but a lot more comfortable and significantly less sweaty and stressful

Liked: The atmosphere- it's so much friendlier than Southern cities. I also like the mix of locals and tourists.

Disliked: The transport was good but I'm not sure they fully provided to the best of their ability for the sheer volume of people attending Parklife
