Any ideas, time and service station... Anyone know the way to the docks?
I'm sure keiran, the old sea dog will be at home on the high seas.
check in closes at 10.30 so i suggest meeting at burtonwood services at 9am. as for directions to the docks, just follow me :wink:
Just rub it in how much closer it is for you lot, you lucky northerners! :(
Us southerners are taking a whole day to get there! :roll:

See you all soon!

We are well placed for some of the big shows but Brighton Breeze is in term time and just too far :(
And I won't bore you with how long it took us to get to Poole last August :evil:

Eeeeeeeeeeeeeek 8O

" Ferry services to and from the Isle of Man may be delayed or cancelled later in the week following predictions of bad weather in the Irish Sea.
Current weather forecasts indicate the risk of a north westerly gale 8 to severe gale 9 on Thursday and Friday.

The strong winds could affect Viking's sailings to and from Liverpool, Lancashire, Belfast and Dublin. "

As you come into Liverpool follow the brown tourist signs for the Royal Albert Dock, and you will see the IOM ferry signposted.

Just bear in mind we are going to be hitting Liverpool at rush-hour on a bank hol Friday

Good point, must allow a bit more time. Although we could have plenty of time if the ferry gets delayed :?

Quay side party :?:

Cheers Chewie,
we're camping in Thurstaston Thursday night, just west of j4 M53, so will be coming through the Kingsway tunnel. I assume it'll be signposted from there?
