Check out the map.

ah, quite far. We are in the North West. Which is at the top of wales, half way up the western side of Great Britain. Its about 350 miles, 6 hours. However it is motorway the whole way other than the last 10miles, which is a main road anyway.

But if you are going to that effort you might as well keep going for another 6 hours, and you'll probably never want to take your rib home

If you get a ferry to holyhead on Anglesey, you are only a 20 minute drive to the main launch place at Ty Calch, mentioned on the thread below, with secure storage etc

Do they do a ferry from Belgium to Holyhead then
