Right i live on the iow as you can see and i want to figure out whether its cheaper for me to drive to st Asaph or get the train.

I'll be going from portsmouth harbour (i think)

Has anyone looked in this yet or know a train route?

Yes i'm having issues with this.

Yea it will take you between 10-12 hours on the train and cost about £100.... so I vote drive.... lol

Really lol hmm. I'm thinking about gettin the boat to southampton and driving from there. Bit more research needed i think.

Whats everyone else doing from down this end?

I was in Portsmouth yesterday.... :o its 180 odd miles to swansea and cost me £40 there and back, So itd probably cost about £80 there and back to the big NW. Start sharing lifts etc.....

Driving is the way :)

Really want to go to this, but having probs with travel. Looking at trains it was going to be stupidly expensive, £90 ish quid return and a 5/6 hour journey. Car sharing would be probably be the best bet.

Mods, If you decide to drive dont suppose you have a spare seat? I'll pay petrol money.

If you've not got a railcard yet, if you buy a railcard that'll cost you £20, but it'll reduce your ticket price by about £30 so you'll end up saving money on this particular journey, and then in future too...

Well i was going to drive but.. my dad owns my van and he has decided he doesnt want me taking all that way <_<

Have a look at coach prices, you can get them ridiculously cheap sometimes

Coach sounds great. Be good to get everyone on this and all chip in. Just leave a few seats free for the bike lol

Would be cool to get up there on a cheap one for us southern lads. I'll have a look out for some deals. If anyone spots anything put a shout up here. Plus i think it would be awesome going up ina big group like that. Meeting new people and all that.
