Brighton VegFest is always a great day out (or two). Last year, I didn't stay over but just went down both days. I'll probably do the same again this year - hence two events.
This is for Saturday. (Sunday is here: http://meetu.ps/vb0Ts)
Our friends from The Vegetarian Meetup Group are going too, so I suspect we'll try to coordinate. Their event for the Saturday is here:
So, time to firm up plans...
Plan A: Victoria (best if you already have a ticket)
9:30 to 9:45 Meet Julie at London, Victoria near the bottom of the escalators that lead up to Victoria Place (by platform 13).
9:45-ish See how many vegans we can squeeze into one carriage. (The plan is to board the train relatively early so we're not just dotted around the train - and can even save space for latecomers.)
10:06 Train leaves Victoria.
10:57 Train arrives in Brighton, and we head for the Hove Centre. It's about a 40 minute walk via the scenic route (along the front) or about 15 minutes by bus or train. (We normally walk.)
"Turn up and go" tickets for the Victoria train are £25.20! So, if you don't already have a ticket, I recommend the Blackfriars option (£10) below instead.
Plan B: Blackfriars (best if you DON'T already have a ticket)
9:00 to 9:15 Meet Robb at London, Blackfriars (and buy tickets!) I don't know the station, so let's say we'll meet at the entrance to platform 1.
9:15-ish See how many vegans we can squeeze into one carriage. (The plan is to board the train relatively early so we're not just dotted around the train - and can even save space for latecomers.)
9:35 Train leaves Blackfriars.
10:55 Train arrives in Brighton, and we wait two minutes for those on the Victoria train...
