Arrived on National Express coach at St Catherines Car Park - the coach had to mount into the grass to get in due to the tortuous entry road -good job it's not muddy.

Dropped off by the very doubtful toilets (closed) and found there were a few 'characters' lurking in the bushes (no CCTV). If I had been a lone female I would have been very apprehensive. Then found the famous park and ride does not run on Sundays and after phoning for a taxi found there could be a two hour wait (shortage of drivers). Can the city fathers sacrifice some of the parking at King Alfred and then the coach could do a two point turn? Alternatively locate the coach stop at the Discovery Centre.

I will use my car for the trips in future.
