Traveling to UK, I need your suggestions

I have been reading on your forums, and you seem to be quite an interesting group of folks. Maybe a bit tame as compared to some here in Northern California (just kidding)

 

I will be visiting your neighborhood in April, on a budget, and using public transportation.

I could really use your input on a couple of questions:

Can you suggest some caches that could be had from public transportation? (and do you know a hostel or low cost inn nearby?)

If I was going to go for just one cache in your area, which one should I go for? (I just hate finding out that the cache I decided to go for was a skanky zip lock bag in some boring location>0

Do you know of any local fiddle jams, preferably in a pub with good beer?

 

I have emailed some of you, and have discovered that public transportation is not as good as one would hope. (It's OK it's worse here.) and that there are some great caching to be done!

How about setting up a 'Foreign Cachers' help group. We could volunteer to accompany a visiting cacher and provide travel facilities. I'd be only to pleased to take a visitor on a cache hunt to an area that I wouldn't normally visit. I'd be more than happy for an excuse to take haicoole west or north. Any other takers.

 

What do you think?

Umm... Looking at the 'guys' profile & homepage, I think the guy might just be a girl.

Who want to offer hospitality now??? icon_wink.gificon_wink.gif

How low cost do you want? The YHA offers about the lowest cost accommodation around here. As for caches, if you stick to the ones in London, you'll be able to do all of them on foot or by public transport. I can only think of a couple of others that might be within range of public transport. Tombraider 1 stands out in my memory. The combination of train and bicycle will extend your range to most UK caches as long as you can persuade the train company to take your bike on their trains.

The second ten million caches were the worst too.

There's a lot of caches within a mile or so of the railway line from London to Cambridge.

Stevenage, Welwyn Garden City, Letchworth, Baldock, Royston, Foxton, Cambridge.

 

Loads of caches along there icon_smile.gif

 

I'd image it to be a similar case elsewhere in the country.

 

WAGN (the operator on that line) actually encourages bicycle users to use the train (and take their bikes with them).
