Cheers, mates! Just wanted to tell you that I am about to leave for Sheffield, South Yorkshire. For those who are already part of this journey, you are probably as excited as I am. The rest of you should know that we will also visit Rotherham, Chesterfield, Mansfield and Huddersfield. In case you want to reach us, we will be staying at Holiday Inn (Victoria Station Road) and at Best Western Cutlers Hotel (George Street). As we are all lazy chaps, we have already hired one of those minibuses to handle our transportation needs. We have even provided Ben with a wheelchair accessible taxi, so that we are 100% certain he enjoys his trip as well.
Alright! So, our journey begins with a wonderful visit to Sheffield Cathedral. If you are passionate about architecture and buildings in general, then you will surely appreciate the beauty of Sheffield Cathedral. From there, we move on to discover the amazing Botanical Gardens of Sheffield. Here, you will have the opportunity to see the most incredible variety of fauna and flora. I am guessing we will all be pretty tired at the end of the day, so I have arranged for executive cars to take us back to our hotels.
From Sheffield, we will travel back to Gatwick airport with a taxi cab. The 199 miles journey is going to be covered in 3 hours and 25 minutes and we will have to pay around £349 for a saloon car. You should know you can also travel from Sheffield to Sheffield airport with an airport taxi; the 45 miles journey is going to be covered in 1 hour and 9 minutes and you will have to pay around £80 for a saloon car. On the road, you can stop at Jurys Inn (Clarendon Road, Watford) and at Park Hotel Nottingham (5-7 Waverley Street, Nottingham). As for eating, I recommend Jimmy’s Restaurant (134 High Street, Watford) and Sat Bains (Lenton Lane, Nottingham).
