Show us 2017

Hi all,

My dad and I will be going to showbus this year. We have decided to catch the bus there (I feel this maybe more expensove than originally thought, this is where his bus pass cones in handy for him).
We are going up on the Saturday and coming back on the Monday (because we all know how great public transport is on a Sunday!!!).
We will be travelling from Burwell and staying in derby. While we have a route in mind I wondered if anyone else had any ideas how they would do it.

Regards,

David

Hi thanks for the response. The slow way is similar to what we originally came up with.
I think we both wanted to ride on delaine so we have talked about going from Peterborough to Stamford then change at Stamford for I think a centrebus route to Melton Mowbray.

We may take the quick way back though and something we had not concedered at all. So much appreciated.

Centrebus route 19 runs from Peterborough to Nottingham via Stamford & Melton Mowbray so you could connect into it if you wanted to travel by Delaine to Stamford.
There are ample buses from Nottingham to Derby including the Red Arrow, (bus passes NOT accepted on this route), all the other Nottingham-Derby routes are ok though.
I would advise checking the Centrebus web site before you travel though as there are changes to the frequencies of the 19 route due to come into play in August.
