    It's not long off now so people are going to be thinking about travel arrangements.

    Does anyone have any directions? When I first searched for it on googlemaps it seemed to be just off the Culvehouse roundabout, tried again last week and couldn't find it anywhere. There doesn't appear to be any on the website.

    Directions

    Give a girl chance, been running a BP Adventure this weekend.

    Here's the directions from the M4, postcode for Sat Navs and the local train station (Will be easier for people to collect from there than going into the city at rush hour).

    Dollypip - If your still coming late at night don't worry we will pick you up from cardiff central station.

    I will be driving down from just outside Birmingham - J4 of the M42 - leaving at around 5pm so I guess arriving around 8pm depending on traffic So I'll have space in the car if anyone else is coming from around here.

    I have a normal sized back seat Dolly, you can put your leg up on that?! But it's up to you, the offer is there.

    Will be coming down from Surrey on M4 on Friday sometime, fairly flexible but don't want to get stuck in any rush hour traffic, so would prefer to be in area earlier and just chill out with a coffee or explore somewhere. Plenty of space in car if anyone wants a lift, company would be nice :)

    We're not leaving Nottm until at least 4pm on Friday, so won't be there until sometime after 9pm depending on the traffic.

    Hi :)

    I'm arriving by train, i think it takes an hour and a half from here so anytime from 4.30 ish - i can be pretty flexible (and don't mind arriving later!) but would appreciate a lift from the station if anyone is willing?

    Thanks!!!
