Can anyone give me the best route to get to St Austell from Norwich. We are playing Carylon Bay & Porthpean this weekend. I realise that there are a few options, so any advice will be greatly appreciated. Cheers, Eddie

Fly ,,, What a lad! - Depends on whether you want motorway or not? - Once you get across to the other side of London (M25 if you pick your time to travel right?) you can either go M4 / M5 down to Exeter & then A road to Cornwall - If you want to stay off motorway then M3 onto A303 (mostly dual carriageway, but with a few notorious bottle-necks like the infamous Stonehenge & the Blackdown Hills section when the A303 joins the A30 - This route also comes out at Exeter though the A30 continues across Devon into Cornwall ...
I use the A303 to visit my son in Torquay & the one time I tried the M5 / M4 to come home there was a major crash & M4 was closed!
Pick your time to travel & it is no problem (early am or late pm) but this might not suit you?
Good luck ... Paul

The RAF won't given us a lift, so that option is out of the question. Plus getting the boss on a plane would be like trying to put B A Baracuss on one. I was thinking about A14, M6 & M5 to Exeter then across from there. Thoughts?

Cost for flights:- Norwich-Newquay  £1600 for 2 & Stansted- Newquay £400 for 2.....I will not be flying!!! I have been informed by the boss that we have to escort her son, so we are going via MK, Oxford & Swindon to M4 then M5. Thanks for your advice guys.
