Parking?

Still trying to decide whether to go by car or train. Has anyone tried using any of the car parks close to the show site during the week?

I went on Saturday and parked at the shopping centre multi-storey just nest door to the show area (not sure what it's called, but there's a big M&S there!).

It was really easy, plenty of spaces. Cost me 6.50 and I was there pretty much all day.

Thanks Trickdog, I had heard that it was fairly easy to park at the week-end, but do the car parks fill up with town centre workers cars during the week? (I will most likely be going on Thursday next)

Have to say the show seems very very quiet. First Saturday, lovely sunny day and not many about!!

Had a good couple of day's driving the Ribcrafts, nice selection to play with.

Will be back down again at the weekend.

Cheers

btw sorry Tim, was having a mental blank/senior moment!
