Talking to Zakgt and Kevin Ring, the plan is to go through the UK as it's basically a straight line from Calais or Dunkirk and cheaper than going through France.

Going out on Wednesday, May 11th and coming back either on the Tues or Weds, Irish Ferries are quoting €330 for 2 adults return. I've been in contact with Ann from the Belgian Mini Club and they can get the same ferries for €266.40, a saving of €63.60!

Who's interested in making a booking through the Belgians?

I'll start a list and see if we can get a better offer:

1. Billy
2. Kevin Ring

Stuck in two minds. That drive across England was a nightmare and you'll be hitting that car park outside London at the same time. I may decide soon. Prices going up :(

We all warned you back in 2014 that you'd be wrecked trying to get to Maidstone in the one day, skull a load of pints and set up the tent afterwards!

The traffic on the outskirts of London was the problem :( 2.5 hours sitting in it. I'll let ye know in the next few weeks what I've decided. Like the idea of skoops on the boat and especially when they r only €2.90 lol.

Change of plan, all booked Rosslare-Cherbourg so no worries about M25 traffic.
