First Trip To The UK

Recommended Posts

Great Yarmouth pleasure beach is a must!

:D

Forget the fact it's made up of twisted and rusting metal structures that look a bit like the flashback scenes in the Terminator films, it's an almost perfectly untouched and unrestored example of the kind of 1970's windswept and delapidated seaside resort which holds many happy memories of my youth. And while most attractions will sadly be closed at this time of year, the arcade (with toilet facilities) will be open for any visitor to fire a tenners worth of 10p's into the penny pushers in the whimsical hope of winning that fiver that's almost certainly glued down. Venture outside and find a fish & chip wagon and stalls selling everything from candyfloss to toffee apples, and of course, the sea, should you fancy rolling up your trousers and having a dip!

In it's day, it was Norfolk peoples 'Disney'.

So this is looking like a Planes, Trains and Automobile kinda trip so far.... Is it best to fly into Manchester and drive to Anglesey or London and fly in ? What's the drive like from Anglesey to Norwich ?

Ronin. 306 miles straight across the country. Unless you use the M6 toll allow 6 hours. Your best bet is East Midlands airport to get to Anglesey, Heathrow is as convenient as Manchester. If you were coming to Norwich first I would recommend Stanstead as its only an hour and a quarter away. Can you fly from London to Anglesey? I don't think so. Its a drive either way. On the way back though, its much easier to get to and from the London airports (gatwick excluded) from Norwich. MAnchester from Norwich is a little time consuming!

Hahahahahaha.......................HAhahahahahahahahahaha....did you say a fast train direct? In th UK? Lmfao!

Apart from costing you an arm and a leg I can't find even a semi direct one. In fact, does Anglesey have a station? As far as I can see you need at least a day and 3 changes. We have very few direct trains here as they tend to stop at every station enroute.

From Norwich the furthest East you can go without changing trains is Cambridge or Peterborough. There is no direct east to west railway.

Does Anglesey have a station???!!!!!! Have you never heard of Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwryndobwlllantisiliogogogoch??

That's on Anglesey...as is RAF Valley, playground of the Gods.....or used to be, before the RAF cancelled all the fast jet training due to the cuts resulting from the banker's brainstorm....

To quote Edmund Blackadder: "Wales is a ghastly place. Huge gangs of tough sinewy men roam the valleys terrorising people with their close-harmony singing. You need half a pint of phlegm in your throat just to pronounce the placenames. Never ask for directions in Wales Baldrick, you'll be washing spit out of your hair for a fortnight." thumbsup.gif

True, Wales is known as "The land of the lukewarm welcome", but is has some excellent castles and a landscape that makes Norfolk look like a flooded tennis court.

Both are of course littered with inbreds, and in some villages an official toe count is still required at birth, unless more than one of the elders witnessed the conception.
