    Default PLYMOUTH by Train Good Friday 30th March 2018

    Plymouth away is Friday March 30, 15:00 KO.
    I looked at Megabus prices. It's about £15 return from London Victoria, an overnight stay is probably best as the coach times are not the best. Laterooms advertise hotels from £30. I'm tempted with an Easter break...

    If you are really looking to go on the cheap, there's a £1 (one pound!) fare there and a £4.70 back!

    But nobody has the right to insult the Russian people - who defeated Nazism and lost more than 25 million people - by comparing our country to Nazi Germany.

    That goes beyond common sense."

    Trouble is ,you can never predict when you're gonna get your 5 minutes of sunshine.

    In any case,as we both know,the micro-climate in SE Essex is the best in the UK.

    many Thanks to RobM for starting this thread here's my usual stuff:

    Plymouth Argyle - Good Friday 30th March 2018
    Home Park
    Capacity: 16,388 (all seated)
    Address: Plymouth, PL2 3DQ


    GOOD FRIDAY NOT CHEAP

    From the Footballground guide site:
    http://www.footballgroundguide.com/l...html#aby-train

    Plymouth Railway Station is about one and a half miles away, so either grab a taxi or embark on the 20 minute walk. As you come out of the station turn right and down the hill and under the railway bridge. Just keep walking straight along this road (A386) and you will eventually reach the ground on your right. Alternatively (except for night games) then Andrew Chapman suggests a more picturesque route: 'Finally I would recommend turning right into Central Park Avenue, at the roundabout just downhill from the station on the A386. Then take the second left into Holdsworth Street, which will lead you up a steep hill into Central Park, where you'll see the ground as soon as you reach the top of the hill. It is a lot nicer route than following the roads - after all (apart from Aldershot) there are no other league clubs situated in a public park!' Chris Bennett adds; ' It's a much nicer walk than going up Alma Road and quicker as well'.

    Check out the Megabus site first but these are the British Rail details

    08.27 London Paddington arrive Plymouth 12.08 (direct) Advance single fare £49.00

    TOTAL RETURN FARE FROM £70.00 Other trains dearer

    THESE TICKETS MUST BE BOUGHT IN ADVANCE BUT CAN BE BOUGHT ON LINE AT THE FOLLOWING LINK:
