I was given a hot recommendation for a curry house in Warwick  {-)
I've booked our table for 18:00 Friday evening at Warwick Spice  :-))


http://www.warwickspice.co.uk/booking/


Anyone else staying on the racecourse CC site?
about 7 years ago, I was at the show, in the evening my daughter and I fancied a curry, went to Warwick, it was closed or no parking anywhere near anything open, drove to rugby with the same thing. ended up having pizza.
the next year,  on my own i booked the hotel in the center of Coventry. only to find out that at 5.30 Coventry closes as well. I went to the pictures and watched skyfall, but could not find a curry house open at all. literally everything was closed!

Warwick racecourse caravan site is excellent and £71 for four nights 2 adults
I have connected to jockey club free WiFi which is fine but imagine will be useless on a race day due to bandwidth


The showers are HOT  :-))
Town is a short walk


The exhibition centre is well past Leamington as far as from Warwick to Leamington
UBER have recently started service in this area and I expect £10 for the trip


See you tomorrow

Sorry Martin it was not meant to be a advert it was something I found on my way back to the hotel  and when I copied  and paste it came out like that ,what made me notice it was that it is not in a town but way out in the country on a farm .

My son and I went for a couple of hours today, in our opinion it was the club displays that made the show and the number of traders appears to be dwindling.  Pete

That's because trade stands at Warwick are so damn expensive it's not worth traders' time going... %)

It's often been said that most model shows are a sea of grey hair. The more kits I buy the longer I will need to live in order to complete them, well that's my theory to longevity
