Organisers of the Group Leisure & Travel Show have confirmed free coach routes that will take visitors to and from the exhibition at the Marshall Arena in Milton Keynes on Thursday 5th October.
Coaches will travel from Waterloo Station in London, Colchester North Train Station in Essex and Newark in Nottinghamshire courtesy of Passenger Plus, Kings Coaches and Marshalls Coaches, with several stops scheduled on all routes to offer a free and easy way to travel to and from Milton Keynes.
Each service is scheduled to arrive at the GLT Show no later than 11am and will leave the Marshall Arena at 4pm, allowing passengers to experience the full day and watch all of the free Seminar Theatre talks. This year’s celebrity line-up features TV gardener Frances Tophill, travel expert Simon Calder, and experienced traveller and TV presenter Matt Allwright from The One Show.
You never know, you may even travel with Simon Calder to the event, who used one of the hassle-free coach services last year.
