      Advice on Hotel/B&B near Minack Theatre in Cornwall near Penzance?

      Penzance Feb 22, 2015 at 12:17 PM

      We plan on attending an evening play at the Minack Theatre, which I believe is near Penzance, but have booked a self-catering cottage in Port Isaac. Since the play will be getting out later in the evening and we are both unfamiliar with the local roads, as well as unaccustomed to driving on the left hand side of the road, we thought it wise to book one night nearby the Minack Theatre. Would anyone have a suggestion as to what would be a reasonable and relatively safe route and hotel to stay at for an overnight?? Thank you!

      London travel advisory - Bus strikes.

      London Jan 28, 2015 at 3:49 PM

      I realise this is not a question and I have posted the information in the relevant London transportation page but I post it here additionally in the hope it may save travellers inconvenience as people may not see it elsewhere.

       

      Following a number of strikes already this month the Unite union have decided yet again to seriously disrupt public transport in London with a series of three strikes affecting the buses. They are planned for 5th, 13th and 16th February from 0001 hours to 2359 hours on each occasion. This will obviously have a knock-on effect on night buses both prior to and after the strikes.

       

      Travellers are advised to check and replan their journey if necessary. Details of how to do this can be found on the Government website

       

      http://www.tfl.gov.uk/

       

      As always, I shall update this if the situation changes.

       

      Hope this assists,

       

      fergy.

      Best way to Travel between London and Rugby

      London Feb 11, 2015 at 7:41 AM

      I will be staying in London during March, but will be going to Rugby for a few days. What is the best and cheapest way to travel from London to Rugby and return? Is it better going by train or coach? I don't have the exact hours I want to travel, but I know I will need to go to Rugby on March 4th and return to London on March 9th. Is it better to order a return ticket from the start or each way seperately? What about where to buy the ticket, is it best to do it beforehand on the internet or just buy the tickets when I am travelling? Would a coach be cheaper than train? Are there any cheaper options? Besides that, I would need to go from Rugby to Birmingham and return and from London to Wareham, Dorset. What are my cheapest travel options?

      Which bus to take?

      by christine.j Online Now Jul 17, 2011 at 3:25 AM

      I've been to Cambridge so often that I thought I'd know my way around. But usually I walked or took a bus from the railway station to the centre, quite easy.
      This time we're travelling with a baby and the weather forecast predicts a mixture of light rain and heavy rain. I've tried finding the right bus for us on the Cambridgeshire Transport website, but no luck. I suppose I'm too stupid to find it, so I thought I'd come here and ask you.

      We have to get from the train station to our B&B in Milton Road. Is it Citibus 4? Or any other bus? I haven't been able to find a page showing all the stops.

      We cannot take a taxi because they don't have baby seats, so it's either walking or buses.

      Thank you for your help.

      Hello,
      I will be visiting Cambridge just for one day.
      I was planning to take a sightseeing hop on / hop off tour bus so I can see more of this city and punt along river cam. Do you think this is a good plan for one day in Cambridge or perhaps someone suggests other things?

      Would love to have dinner in a local restaurant - think I'd go for The Eagle, any other suggestions?

      The next day I will be travelling to London, so far I know I have to leave Cambridge by train and stop at Kings Cross in London ... can someone please forward a link to the railway station website. I will be staying at the Ashley Hotel, 74 Chesterton Road, Cambridge, CB4 1ER where I believe is best to take a taxi from the hotel to the railway station.

      Any suggestions for a lovely day in Cambridge are most welcome.

The site gives fares, then says they're only good Mon-Thurs., leading me to believe those busses don't travel on Sunday, but an email from them says they do. Anyone know:
      a) if Natl. Express bus (coach, they're called) does run on Sunday from Cambridge to Heathrow, in time for us to catch 5pm flight? And Sunday fare?
      b) if there's a TRAIN that might be faster? (And where it goes, and connections to Heathrow?)

      Does anyone have advice about when/where to join the line to gain entrance to the chapel for Lessons and Carols? Are there public facilities nearby? Three of us are traveling from the USA for this marvelous event. Even leaning up against the wall on the outside will make it worthwhile, but would prefer to get in!

      VT meeting in Cambridge?

      by AcornMan Online Now Jul 2, 2006 at 10:04 AM

      My wife and I are visiting Cambridge on the nights of July 27 and 28. Anyone care to meet us for drinks on the evening of the 28th? We can decide on the time and place later. This is my first trip to Cambridge since 1991 when I took summer classes at the university, so I'm excited to see this wonderful city (and its pubs) again! I posted an announcement in the VT meeting section, so you can sign up there if interested.
