think thats why im going to drive there unless someone has a spare coach ticket they no longer need? if i do drive is it quicker to go M25 and then A2 or the M11 and then the north circular??????????? may have some space in the car if people are struggling getting there mind you im going in my old banger which although reliable does have quite a few knocking noises!!!!!!!!!!!

Just to round it off, you can look forward to a "civic reception" from the sc*m when you get chucked off the train at Ipswich station . . .

Depends what time on the Sunday you are going.  If it is earlyish then would say A406 but if you are going to be on it mid morning then would go M25.  Should not be too much traffic as most people will abandon London for the bank holiday.

[quote user="jbghost"]If you are travelling by train go via Cambridge into Kings Cross. Only takes about 10 minutes more than normal route and no busses or Scum to worry about[/quote]

Trouble is, the first train on a Sunday doesn''t arrive at KX until 12.08 making it almost impossibly tight for a 1.15 kickoff.

You could drive to Cambridge though and get an earlier KX train, it''s the Norwich one that makes it late.

If you decide to do that and you''re going on the A11 leave plenty of time to get past Elveden - it can be a nightmare on bank holiday weekends.
