      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?
      Thanks,

I am building a wood model of this ship and wanted to see the real one. Victory is going through a 10 year restoration and the top masts have been removed and I am trying to find out how much of the ships rigging is still in place. I emailed the HMS Victory people but have not received any replies. Actual current photos would be great if you have them. Thanks. Ron

      Spaces in Portsmouth Ferry Carp park at peak times

      by KakapoTheParrot Online Now Mar 6, 2011 at 3:14 AM

      I'm thinking of going to France for a few days in the May half term holiday from Portsmouth. I don't intend taking my car to France so expect to leave it at the ferry terminal and travel as foot passengers.

      I can accept the cost of the on-site car parking, but I wonder whether the car park ever gets full? We'll be arriving *early* morning after a 3 hour dash down to the ferry so it would be a pain if we arrived and found it full. There seems to be no concept of pre-booking a space.

      Portsmouth for a day in JUne...

      by MrsPeel Online Now Apr 18, 2010 at 4:07 AM

      Hi guys :)

      We are going to board a Bilbao mini cruise in Portsmouth second week of June, so I have a few questions, if anyone who is a local has any info, I would be really greatful.

      First of all, how is the weather suppose to be in June?
      Is it worth to pay a night B&B to spend the night and then tour Portsmouth the day after?

      we booked National Express from London & back, because when I went to have a look at the trainline info, the train return was gonna cost us per person almost as much as the whole cruise costs (cruise + meals £110 per person- train return almost £80 per person)
      The National Express ended up costing £9.50 per person, as they have special prices for registered disabled and my daughter is a teen, what I am trying to establish is that we are in low budget, so, if a B&B costs more than £50 a night I would have to pass...

      I didn't think Portsmouth would have much to offer but coming here to read about the weather I see it can be an interesting place to look around?
      I'm not in a wheelchair but have mobility problems, but someone here in the forum mentioned tours, again, if anyone has info on this, would be grateful :)

      Thanks in advance.

Is it possible to do all this in the time frame without having to rush or cram? Advice will be very much appreciated!

      Parking for Continental Ferries

      by MelanieBee Online Now Feb 12, 2010 at 6:33 AM

      Hi,

      We are going to St Malo with Brittany Ferries in a couple of months. When we went to Bilbao in 2007 we parked right next door to the ferry terminal and the parking was surprisingly cheap. I checked a couple of the ferry operators' websites and they all point to the same parking company who charge £10 per day! I am assuming that they are talking about the same place we parked before.

      Did I park somewhere else last time, or have they increased the prices by a whole lot?

      Is there anywhere cheaper than this to safely park our car for 5 days?

      Thanks in advance
