Marathon Runner and I did manage to get there a few years ago and it was a lovely day out by ourselves, no children, all on our own. The amount of organisation it required when the children were younger though took some military precision! Now the girls are older, I thought we might try it again. When I totted up the cost, I had to sit down!
Rail fare £100
£139 and that's not even taking into account food (most important) and buying something (which I know I couldn't resist)!
Think I might just have to browse on the internet instead!
