Friday 11 September: Castle, Basilica, Lieu Unique, Arcade, Fairground and "Fairy Bar"

Arrived in Nantes around 1.30pm so as our hotel/flat was closed until lunchtime we had a lovely lunch of typical Nantes food Galette, salty caramel crepe and cider sitting outside int he sun :)
Checked in (basic flat right opposite iles des machines, not so cool being on 5th floor and broken lift, which i imagine they have no intention to repair.
We arrived with sunshine and nantes was filled with student running around in flurescent outfits for rag week.
Nantes haa a very pretty arcade "Passage Pommeraye", we then popped in the Basilica St Nicholas . Visited the Castle des ducs de Bretagnes just before it closed
Popped to see Lieu unique , cool ex LU biscuit factory by the canal turned into bar, art space, installation kind of space. Still have a fabulous Art Nouveau tower
Fairground in town so had a wander and photos of blood and monsters
"Fee Maison" bar ..a mix of fairies and glbt decor, artworks exhibited, a metal mesh dragon, cute skeleton on menu, logo with a frog, sofas and trinkets and even the odd TG flyer alongside a super friendly crowd. It was amusing as we went because of the fairy theme but once in we soon realised fairies in a few meanings...everyone was so friendly and had a right laugh in the end as we got many kisses before being allowed to escape.
