Are any techs from cornwall going to Olympia? Looks like I will have to go on my own so anyone wanting to share travel ? I have looked at flying from Newquay to gatwick, but I don't know how far Olympia is from there. It costs £105 including taxes. Would be happy to drive if anyone wants to share petrol?

Problem is that the trains from cornwall would not get me there till after lunch!! So I would have to go the day before, then there is hotels etc. How long exactly to get from Gatwick?

bloody hell Ruth have you started working for British Rail :lol: - that was amazing!!! an FYI for anyone wanting to stay - I have mentioned this before but The Regency - Queens Gate South Ken - 020 7373 7878 does good deals and is about a £5 away from Olympia by taxi - we stay there and it's clean - decent breakfast and for a twin you may be only looking at £60 each - not so bad.....
