Weekends Away (UK only)

Stayed in Harrogate on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Was working unfortunately, but what a nice Town. Stopped in the Old Swan Hotel and ate out in the Mynokos and Cardamom Black restaurants. Nice enough, give em both 7.5/10 

Nice architecture, the parks are lovely and it looks like it could be a good night out, with plenty if old pubs and modern bars etc.

    I'm definitely going back for a holiday mate. My Mrs would love it, especially Betty's Tea Rooms
  • Always enjoyed going down to Hastings.
  • visitgreenwich is pushing Thamesmead.

    Thamesmead - Visit Greenwich

    Crossrail may bring in the riff raff, though, so Gravesend might be a better bet.

    Visit Gravesend, Gravesham - Kent's Hidden Gem - Visit Gravesend
  • Broadstairs for me if staying south. If up North then Whitby.
    THIS x100

    My mate runs a great bar called The Magnet in Broadstairs - great bar

    My wife and I had a lovely week staying in Broadstairs Oct 2019 when our 2 dogs were only pups - one of my favourite holidays ever - lovely beaches and the town is so pretty with great places to eat and drink

    I'm waiting until we are relegated next year, so can combine the sightseeing with a Charlton away game

  • York is a lovely place, and i always love visiting Weymouth and surrounding areas.
  • I like Southwold.
    Nice but prefer Aldburgh down the road.

    Winchester is great for a bit of history

    Nearby Holkham is a beautiful place to visit.
    Fantastic beach and Holkham Hall is pretty stunning.

    Victoria Inn is a lovely place to stay but not cheap.
  • Penge. 
    Oi 
    I lived in Penge till I was 11

    Anyone? Nope me neither.
  • A number of our L1 opponents are in decent "weekend break" territory really. Cheltenham, Shrewsbury, Cambridge, Exeter, Plymouth and presumably FGR in Stroud. Bristol has a lot to see also.

    Would agree with the suggestions of Broadstairs, Southwold and Weymouth for nearby coastal resorts.

    We always try and have a night or 2 down there each year - when we go this year, I’ll pay it a visit.
  • Isle of Purbeck/Corfe/Swanage are not too far - some great walking and beaches.
    Up north I like Durham and Tynemouth, but since Little Miss Idle finished at uni up there it's a hell of a drive for a weekend.

    Gonna do the weekend in Lincoln next season.

  • For a city break you can't really beat Bristol. So easy by train to get to, easily walkable, lots of history and some cracking restaurants and pubs.

    Was impressed with Lincoln when I was up there this season, next time maybe I should give myself more time to see the historical parts by skipping the match...

    And if you stay there longer, Bath and Weston-super-mare are easy excursions

    Nobody goes to Weston-super-Mare unless you are seeing your dealer.

    Bradford upon-Avon is worth a visit if in the area.
  • Norwich is smashing, Norfolk in general lovely. Chesterfield isn't a bad base, brilliant market on a Saturday and adjacent to so many lovely places

    I see you couldn’t wait to get out. 
  • Did a tourist day at Cardiff recently, was really impressed, nice city, and could easily do a weekend there.

    Weymouth has become a favourite for us in recent years.

    Broadstairs is by far my ‘easily drive’ place but it’s always a day drive and home job. If anyone knows any good suggestions for a family friendly stay down that way, drop me an inbox please!

    keep checking booking.com it's price varies. Still 20 mins form Broadstair but decent place
