This one's nice and central,

http://www.abandb.net/south-of-england/the-farrells.htm

This one's not too far, but it's a bit of an uphill trek and the pub we're going to and the train station it's the other side of the city, maybe getting taxi would be good,

http://www.abandb.net/south-of-england/stratton-house.htm

I think a few other people here have already blagged whatever rooms are free in this one,

http://www.abandb.net/south-of-england/bed-&-breakfast.htm

Also, check out these,

http://www.s-h-systems.co.uk/winchest.html

Good locations listed on that page are: Bethany House (central and in the same direction as other people are staying), Mallard Cottage (central), Bellamys Bed and Breakfast, Lang House (Bellamys and Lang both walkable by day, a quick taxi at night...), Birchlands Bed and Breakfast (quite close to the pub actually), Farrells Guest House (central and again in the same area as others will probably be staying), Clifton Terrace (ludicrously central, a great location for seeing Winchester but a little pricey, 50 single, 55 double), Judys Bed and Breakfast (a taxi ride away from Winchester, set in a lovely little village called Littleton), Sycamores Bed and Breakfast (quite central, close to the pub, reasonable price too) and The King Alfred Pub (nice place, central, good food).

Don't go for the last one on the list, the Prince of Wales, because it's shut!

There you go, that should help you all out a bit! I've been checking physical locations on http://www.streetmap.co.uk by copying and pasting the post-codes. The ones I've mentioned, unless otherwise stated, are all in reasonable walking distance of the city centre.

As previously mentioned by Mr Fuzzy in another thread, make your enquiry by phone. People around here tend to be quite old-fashioned and just because their grandson has set up an email account for them it doesn't mean they know how to use it.

Do you reckon that we can just turn up and expect a room? I'm far too lazy to actually book a hotel/B&B.

Not really no. Book in advance, there's not really any space at my house for people to kip on the floor either. Get organised! I've found a page with all their numbers for you, now you've just got the easy bit of phoning them!

There was such uproar about that book around here when it came out, it was really funny. The reasons given were that it's dull to live hear, the centre of town can be pretty rowdy at pub-chucking out time and loads of the people are far too snooty. I thought it was great that the last point was proved completely true by all the people objecting to it! laugh.gif

I've been checking out the restaurant that I think it would be nice to go to. On Saturdays they close at 2:30pm and reopen at six (by which time we'll probably be at the pub!). Can most people get to the station for 1:00pm? If we walk to the pizza place at 1:15 that'll give us time to sit and eat. The restaurant is only a couple of minutes away from the station (it's Manhattens just up from the Westgate for anyone who knows Winchester) on the same road you come out on so it'll be really easy to find for anyone who's late.

Sounds like Broadstairs, where my dad lives. Everybody, stay out of Broadstairs. Actually, stay out of the whole of Kent.

And yeah, 1pm at the station is fine by me.

No worries, mate. Scumbernauld is number two. :S

-has lived there his whole life-

oh yeah, and reduce the numbers going by one. My new work took it upon themselves to disavow all knowledge of my warning at the interview saying "yes im going to england for a weekend on the 7th of febuary, so i do have holidays planned" and just gave me hours anyway. Maybe they thought I might want them "just in case" or maybe they figured they were better company than u guys. If any of u take this as an insult, btw, feel free to write and tell em how u feel. Just addy it to Tesco and it should get thrown out alongside all their other customer feedback mail, or given to santa for next christmas. Yeah.

-rant ends-

so, not gonna make it. Again. Next time, tesco, next time. Unless of course each and every one of you can change any arrangements u already have to put this thing on the sunday, since Im off from then til thursdays... -lol- ...

-is sad-

Yep, that's right! biggrin.gif You'd better be there or there WILL be blood and it won't be mine. Grrrrrr! dry.gif

laugh.gif

I'll arrange a train to arrive around 1pm then. I think though that the nearest I can get to that is 1.30pm but I'll double check and let you know smile.gif

Since the jerky thing is rearing its head again I should inform all those planning to come that not only is jerky available in Winchester, there is also a shop stocking biltong.

Mmm, biltong!

I feel a forum invasion of that shop is in order. See to it, Jerky Ensign Fuzzy!

Just buy some black cherry flavoured syrup and tip it into Coke. That's how they make it here anyway!
