You can take the Piccadilly line into London and stay somewhere overnight, then the next day go to Taunton by train from Paddington (55.00 return if you book in advance) and then by bus from Taunton to Minehead. For rail details and to book, go to National Rail Enquiries. If you don't book the rail ticket in advance it costs more than twice as much.

Generally avoid hostels/bed and breakfasts in Paddington as they have overpriced rooms/shares because of the big influx of travellers in the area.If you don't mind the extra mile head east as it's cheaper and more fashionable because i live there.

19 quid! Crikey, that is cheap!

But I can trump you with 13.60 for a London Victoria to Taunton return trip on National Express. Depart London 09:00, arrive Taunton 12:55, and return from Taunton 10:15 arrive London 14:15. The fare type is "Funfare A".

First of all, Taunton is not a nice town, it's a fucking horror show. Don't be fooled kids, it's a fucking wreck. Bunch of six-fingered banjo players.

Secondly, if anyone needs somewhere to stay on the evening before, I can put up about 3 people, who I'll solicit on a first-come, first-served basis [PMs please]. I live in Weston-super-Mare, just one motorway junction down the road from Minehead, and am quite happy to meet/ entertain people in Bristol if needs be. If you're stuck the evening before, I reckon it'd be easier to find a hostel in Bristol (again, PMs and I can send you some hostel details) than it would in Minehead/ Taunton. Thirdly, I understand Exeter (probably closer than Bristol) apparently has an international airport, though I imagine most of you have sorted planes and such already.

Usually sarcastic bollocks service resuming... now.

Cock.

I see your 13.60-on-National-Express and raise you an absolutely free ride all the way to Minehead in my Mum's car. With the possibility of a piss 'n' smoke break (with free sandwiches and a bag of Hula Hoops) at Membury service station on the M4.

Ha. Beat that.


PS - Taunton's not THAT bad, Glice. Vivary Park is quite pretty.. ducks and all that. And, uh, there's that tattoo place and a surf shop on the corner of the high street. And Bath Place. Bath Place is quite cool.. (y'know that little tunnel off the high street that leads into that back alley with the bookshop, the piercing studio, the comic shop, the deli and the place that sells crystals and goth clothes and punky eyeshadows and stuff?) Could be worse...

Ah, I can trump you no further, Katy.

There are a small number of lucky revellers who will be getting free transport from Heathrow in my car, but the car is only little and alas I have room for no more. I will probably allow my prisoners (erm... sorry, I meant passengers) a comfort break en route, but I don't think I'll be able to offer free sandwiches or hula hoops. They will, however, have the opportunity to listen to carefully chosen music on the journey, which, out of the kindness of my heart, will not include any teeny-pop.

I did consider, as a little sideline, making enquiries with a coach company to find out the price of hiring a coach from London to Minehead via Heathrow on the Friday and back on the Monday, but I decided that organising it would be just too much like hard work.

You're right, it could be worse. It could be Bridgewater, Yeovil, Minehead itself or, heaven forbid, fucking Clevedon, Nailsea or Yatton.

I'd recommend Exeter, Cheddar, Glastonbury or (controversially, some might say) Midsomer Norton if anyone's day-tripping in the area. And Bath, Wells or Cheltenham if you fancy driving for a wee while.

I have a reticence to Taunton because everyone I know who comes from/ lives there is an absolute cock. I've also been beaten up there once and threatened twice. And I've never known any raves to happen there, which is a definite no-no for Westcountry towns.

I should get paid for being a motherfucking tourguide.

EDIT: I completely forgot - Taunton has this weird acoustic anomaly where you clap in a certain area and the acoustics are such that the reverberation sounds like a quack. I shit ye not.

My girlfriend's aunt lives in Taunton, and we stayed a few days there a couple of years ago, which was where I got the impression it was a nice little town. At the end of the day it doesn't really have to be all that nice anyway, it's only for an hour or two's stopover between coaches, and that can easily be spent in a pub. So, Tourguide Glice, what pubs would you recommend or advise against?

I was unimpressed with Glastonbury when we went there. Far too much new age crap. You see one crystal, you've seen 'em all. And don't get me started about hippy buskers, we've had a thread about that before that said all that was necessary.

Thanks.

I might take you up on the Bristol info offer later, Glice... but at the moment I don't know where I'll be on the 7th. It all depends on who's playing where and what other people are doing.
