Join Merseysiders for a fun weekend in Edinburgh. Meeting in Edinburgh on the afternoon of Friday, 19th May  and leaving for home in the evening of Monday, 22nd May 2017.

As a capital city there is such a variety of things to do it is difficult to know where to start.

The National Museum of Scotland is the best presented museum in the UK.

The Castle can take a day to see.

International standard art galleries are free to wander around.

In themselves the streets are interesting. The old town is full of ginnels and outstanding architecture.

The city is full of interesting and affordable places to eat and drink.

The theatres stage productions to rival London's West End.

We can watch the sun set from King Arthur's Seat.

The nominated accommodation is the Travelodge, Edinburgh Central, Princess Street. Failing that try to book your accommodation near to the Waverley Railway Station.

Activities will adapt to the numbers attending and their desires. The usual Merseyside device is to nominate different meeting places during the day to facilitate regrouping.

The organiser, Nick Wilkinson, does have a mobile telephone but it will only be used while away from home. Use the landline number or the email address, before the event.

ROBIN HOOD’S BAY

Leisure Holiday / Field Centre Accommodation - A Birmingham IVC Event

 

We came here in 2011, 2013, 2015 and 2016 had such a good time, so we have to go back!

 

Only 1 week this time because Hilary and I want to go somewhere else in Aug 2017.

 

Robin Hood’s Bay, with its narrow streets and quaint cottages and houses, is one of the most picturesque and far-famed villages on the English coastline. The old village nestles in a narrow ravine at the edge of a wide sweeping bay, which is bounded on the north by Bay Ness and on the south by the lofty cliffs of Ravenscar.

For more details about Robin Hood’s Bay go to www.robin-hoods-bay.co.uk or www.bayfair.co.uk and follow the links.

Things to do!

Walking - Robin Hoods Bay is at the end of the famous Wainwrights Coast to Coast walk.

Cycling - The Whitby to Scarborough cycle route follows the old railway passing through RHB. Cycle hire is available nearby. go to: www.trailways.info

Whitby - is dominated by the cliff-top ruins of the beautiful 13th century Whitby Abbey. This traditional maritime town, with its old cobbled streets,

Scarborough - Britain’s first seaside resort, has been welcoming visitors for over 360 years and is still as popular as ever.

North Yorkshire Moors Railway - magnificent steam engines, beautiful rural stations and smartly uniformed staff, is like taking a step back in time.

Plus loads more close by.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Lloret de Mar is a Mediterranean coastal town in Catalonia, Spain. One of the most popular holiday resorts on the Costa Brava, it is 40 kilometres (25 miles) south of Girona and 75 kilometres (47 miles) northeast of Barcelona. With a population of 39,363 in 2009, it is the second largest town in the Selva comarca of Catalonia.

Lloret de Mar attracts summer visitors on package tours. Its main beach (length: 1,630 m; width: 45 m; small, gravel-like stones) is one of the most popular Costa Brava beaches and is consistently awarded the Blue Flag for cleanliness.
