    • Whitby folk

      Whitburn Jul 31, 2016 at 6:13 AM

      Hi

      Really looking forward to Whitby folk - any ideas of the cheapest places to park please. Don't want to park in the leisure centre as it's a long walk into town with instruments. Plan to get there at 10 am or just after and leave by 4pm or so

      Travelling in from Flaxton - so are there any road works in operation or planned for the end of Aug

      Many thanx

    • Healthy Food / Organic Food / Fresh Squeezed Juices

      Newcastle upon Tyne Jun 8, 2016 at 10:57 AM

      Hi there,

      We are traveling to the UK for 2 weeks and will be staying in the Seaton Delaval area. Could anyone recommend health food stores / supermarkets that sells a good selection of fresh juices (fresh squeezed or cold pressed) and healthy food in general? Are there any organic supermarkets or places that juice in front of you? We've been told that Waitrose has a decent selection.

      Any guidance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!!

      Newcastle upon Tyne Jan 14, 2016 at 2:02 PM

      I have been told that there is a discount clothing location about 30 minute's drive from Newcastle Upon Tyne airport. I'm told that the place "has a one-word name".

      The answer isn't the 'Metro' :)

      Can anyone assist me please?

      With thanks

      UK train low cost tickets London-Newcastle

      Newcastle upon Tyne Sep 17, 2014 at 11:42 PM

      Good day!

      During my visit to London this Dec. I intend to travel for 2 days to Newcastle. I've noticed that when booked in advance, train tickets can go as low as 16 pounds one way. The reservation system allows bookings for some 2.5 month in advance, which means that 8-9 Dec. bookings can be booked as for yesterday.

      My question is for those whom are familial with these tickets: when I search dates (Mondays, always) in Nov. or even Dec. 1st I can see these 16-28 pounds tickets available, however for Dec. 8-9 ALL tickets go for 120-150 pounds! which is a fortune when having a small family, and in comparison to domestic flights that go for 45-55 pounds (and which I want to avoid). Are these dates have any "special" demand for train tickets to Newcastle, or is it that the system starts publishing the special "book in advance" fares only a bit later?

      I would wait a bit for the low cost option, but if be advised that these dates would most likely be stable on the 120-150 pounds tickets, I would just take the flight option.

      Thanks!
