Day 36 - Manchester to Cambridge
Today Laura was up and ready early as she had booked a tour of Old Trafford! I had a lazy morning, packed up the car and went to the new outlet centre!!
After all this activity this morning we didn't get onto the road until 1pm! We headed to Cambridge, a big drive!! We arrived in Cambridge at about 4:30pm, we went straight to the Tourist Info to find our accommodation for tonight, only to be told by a very rude man that there is NO accommodation in Cambridge due to a conference, so there!! What is it with us and conferences everywhere we go!! We called several places, all booked even places near Stansted!! It was ridiculous!! In the end we found an ibis hotel at Luton Airport! It meant more driving but at least we had somewhere to sleep!!
We parked ip and went to explore some of Cambridge while we still had time and some daylight!! Great photos!! We had dinner in my favourite pub - The Eagle! Bangers and mash for Laura and a steak and ale pie for me!! Divine!!
We then headed off to Luton, after a road closure, huge diversion and some mistakes, we finally made it to Luton!! The Ibis is lovely and clean and it means I have less to drive tomorrow!! Woo hoo!!!
