Nearly booked a hotel. (That was on 'Book A Year in advance, get 80% of the price off' deal.) But then noticed it didn't have evening meals, so left it.
York, I had look around at. I found it a bit dull, but I find everything dull. I'm dull. But the Barbican, to quote John Parrott, was fabulous. Really enjoyed it.
I agree with you. The visiting of it week was the best part of the tournament, for me.
