    They’ll have to be a drastic drop in the train prices for me to come as I’ll have to stay overnight. Just looked on the East Coast Trains website at Sat 8th June and the cheapest I could find was £104 return from Euston. Add to that the return from Eastbourne to Victoria, the tube fares and the room for the night and I end up with a frowning wife!

    We're all getting excited about Leeds here and I'll go anywhere there's good beer but maybe it is about time that us Northerners ventured down south for a change and give our pals there a visit!!

    I may have to pay a bit more for a pork pie and a pint, but I'll give it a shot

    London would suit me for obvious reasons but there are a load of new pubs and brewpubs in the Islington and Hackney area.

    I think that price must be something to do with weekend engineering works, the normal advance fare (if you buy far enough ahead) is £13 each way from East Coast trains (or £14.60 from elsewhere).

    This thread seems to have run out of steam, so I'm just giving it a bit of a kick to start it off again.

    What about Reading? It's relatively easy to reach without going into London for those of us coming from the North (Cross Country Trains, changing in Birmingham if necessary) and a pretty quick journey for most southerners, I would guess, including those lucky enough to live in Bristol. Plus we've got a ready-made guide to devise a crawl and lead us around.

    Very easy for me.

    I used to work in Reading and then Shinfield in the late 90s and would love a return visit. But I'd also love a trip to Leeds!

    Has the next PuG meet-up been mooted yet? I have been off the radar over the past several months and am trying to get back into swing of things with reports and such like - would be nice to catch-up.
