      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?
      Thanks,

      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.
      Grateful once again for any suggestions.

      in Manchester for 4 nights

      Manchester Feb 1, 2015 at 2:38 AM

      Hi we will be in Manchester in April for 4 nights we will be arriving on Easter Monday late afternoon we are mixed group of adults and teenagers with the youngest being 14 year old football/dancing/shopping mad girl. We will be staying out at Salford quays basically because I know this area reasonably well and we plan on spending lots of time in the Trafford/Salford quays area. As yet nothing is set in stone other than the hotel and we don't mind travelling into city centre from Salford Quays on the tram its one of the highlights for one of the party and are I'm well aware of the arguments for and against staying in the city centre but what can I say I like the quays area and have stayed at a few different hotels in this area and ten - twenty minutes travelling on a tram is really not an issue for us.

      I should state two of the party have learning disabilities so looking for lots of different suggestions on things we can do other than museums and shopping. Id spend the entire time in the various museums lol but that's just me. One of the party quite likes trailing around the museums, one is indifferent and the 14 year old attention drifts if she spends more than ten minutes doing anything

      our plans so far and this is no particular order is this

      One day would be spent
      old Trafford tour (they all football daft Im indifferent to be honest and I'd rather go to the city ground but was told no)
      imperial war museum well you know we have to .
      lowery outlet village and walk over for a look at media city uk (maybe not sure yet)
      and also a trip to the cinema in the evening (either this day or the day we arrive)

      another day
      would be spent in the city centre
      we will be going to the corrie tour (I know I know but we are all corrie fans)
      museum of science and industry (how long should we plan to spend here I was thinking 2 hours)
      other than that suggestions of other things we could do in the city centre also I been looking at the shuttle bus that goes between the various places in city centre are these really free??? Yes I know it says it on the website but coming from an area of the country where they would charge you for thinking about getting on a bus if they could get away with it Im just making sure I did not misread this piece of information.

      the third day
      we would be planning on going to the Trafford centre
      while at the Trafford centre we would be doing some shopping and also bowling at namcos (keeping the bowling mad boys happy).

      so what you all think and suggestions of other things we could do alterations we could make btw we wont be doing the Lowry :-( I've been before and I don't think anyone else in the group would get anything out of it.

      I have been looking on this site and others for ideas but it mostly seems to be museum type activities not sure how two of the party would cope with a whole trip trailing around the museums and shops. So any suggestions for activities that are not museums or museums that are mostly all interactive and good fun

      Trains and planes

      Manchester Feb 11, 2014 at 7:26 PM

      I'm starting to get my UK adventure booked and this is what we're doing (I think). I'm flying into Edinburgh and then will travel to Manchester where I will meet Mr. Dabs and pick up a car.

      1) where should we pick up the car? Airport? Train station? (if we take the train back to London)
      2) what's the best way for me to get between Edinburgh & Manchester? Are advance tickets much cheaper?

      Then we will meander through England, Wales and then loop back up to Manchester where we will drop the car and take a train back to London Friday afternoon/night. We're flying out of LHR VERY early Sunday and Mr. Dabs loves to spend Saturday in London. Based on what we're seeing and my already booked Highclere tickets, the Manchester to Manchester loop makes more sense than dropping the car in London (and paying a drop fee)

      1) what's the best way to get back to London from Manchester? I found Virgin trains which had advance tickets for 12.50£, I saw that there was a bus, but it looks to be about twice as long. Is there another train? Megatrain (which I believe is just the regular train with a special car) doesn't seem to exist.
