      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!

      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?

      From cornwall to Heathrow

      In Wales for 5days then driving via west Coast to Penzance. We are walking part of the South West Coast Path ending in Falmouth on Sat 6 th June 2015. We need to be at Heathrow on Mon 8th.
      We would like some ideas on where/how to spend these 2 days making our way back to the airport. We will not have a car. We are not keen to spend 7 or 8 hours in a train or bus to London so thought we could see something interesting in the country instead. Had a quick look at Salisbury but weren't oversold on it. ( or maybe it was a poor website). Have previously been to Bath, Windsor etc.

      Two days

      Chester Apr 25, 2013 at 12:55 AM

      We are thinking of doing a self-drive holiday in UK - never having been there before, but with limited time I was thinking of the following, obviously with stops along the way for sightseeing.

      Day 1 (6.50 am arrival .....) London
      Day 2London
      Day 3 Drive to Bath
      Day 4 Drive to Chester
      Day 5 Drive through Wales, back to Chester
      Day 6 Drive to York
      Day 7 Drive to Nottingham
      Day 8 Drive to Warwick
      Day 9 Drive to Oxford
      Day 10 Drive back to Heathrow (early start day 11)

      Is it better to spend the two days in Chester with day trips out or would I be better allocating the time elsewhere? Not much interest in the Lakeland District as we are more interested in the history than the scenery.

      Also, my husband will be working and we will need wifi access everywhere. Looking at B&B's, but want wifi, private facilities in all places. Am I too hopeful?

      Any help gratefully accepted
