Peterborough Club will be there all week exhibiting in hall 5.


We travel by Ferry and road, via Calais/Dunkirk depending upon ferry times. Sunday night can be a bit of a cross Europe dash. Don't want  to miss the ferry, midnight in Dunkirk ferry terminal ugh!


Do pop by hall 5 and say hello.

Accommodation is Reasonably priced, depends what you want to pay , theirs the Ibis from about 40 euro's per night plus a short tram ride away  or a four star hotel within an easy walk but you pay more. Generally we found the hotels to be excellent and good food can be found locally, id say most restaurant's you will find at least one member of staff who speaks English. :-)

We are stopping at the Mercure  hotel , works out at about 100 pound a night, or 50 pp so if you say it quick its not bad , I think !!!!! ITs going to take longer to drive To Hull than from Rotterdam ,we could have gone from Newcastle ,but want to catch up with relatives in Yorkshire.

Five of us are going from Glasgow again this year, flying out on the 4th. We rent a flat, it works out at 20 euro per head per night and only a short walk to the Exhibition centre. The 32 euro show ticket is great value for money :-))

Yeah all booked up here as well, this will be my third visit. Unfortunately Easyjet no longer do there 07.00 departure from Luton airport anymore so I'm flying out on Tuesday afternoon returning on the late one Thursday, still good value as this exhibition never disappoints.
