Can we get round all the wondrous places the left bank city has to offer?

• There’s the Real Tennis court, one of few in the country, its walls decorated with antlers’ heads, which feels like it’s been transported from deepest Barsetshire.

• Bexley Square Magistrates’ Court was the Town Hall and more recently featured in Coronation Street as the location of Tyrone’s trial.

• Salford has a Catholic cathedral, St John the Evangelist, the first cruciform church to be built since the Reformation of the 1530s when it went up in the 1840s.

Just a few examples of the unusual fayre on offer.
