After we get off the train at Manchester, Picadilly, how far is it to the set of Coronation Street and what type of transportation do you recommend to get there? Do you recommend certain attractions as must see in Manchester?
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.
