    I've got a guest coming along who has never been on a PuG crawl but was brought up in Preston and is keen to revisit some of his early drinking haunts and also see the newer ale scene.
    Princess Alice is great but a bit of a way from the city centre

    Have now reserved my hotel in Manc, as it stands for 2 nights, Thurs and Fri, will almost certainly be travelling up by Mega bus.

    All booked! Arriving Thursday and off on Sunday. Might as well have a potter somewhere interesting on the Saturday seeing as I've made the effort to get up there. Bolton? Rochdale? Somewhere like that.

    Found it was cheaper to get a Megabus AND a night in Manc AND a day return to Preston from Picc than a day return to Preston from Reading!
