London origin also lived in Shetland Isles and Harrogate in Yorkshire.
I am an Architect, now retired, and have a Fine Art Degree from Leeds University
We stayed at John's place during the Tour de France Grand depart in Yorkshire. The iconic building Silk Mills is amazing, and John's flat is beautifully designed, with 2 sweet cats (1 shy and 1 curious). The room is clean and quiet, with a comfortable bed. Most importantly, it was a pleasure meeting John; we greatly enjoyed our conversations with him.
John was an informative and generous host and his apartment was extremely comfortable. I stayed there for the weekend in order to watch a game at Valley Parade. The stadium is just ten minutes walk away, so practically perfectly located for my purposes. The city centre is roughly 20 minutes walk away. There are plenty of Pakistani restaurants nearby also too and all are reasonably priced.
