Ok, so I want to go to the cheese rolling competition at Cooper's Hill. I have a coach ticket to Gloucester. How can I get from Gloucester to Cooper's Hill? Bus or rail or walking? How far is it? Also, is Cooper's Hill a town, or just the name of the hill the where the competition is held??
Thanks for any info
It's held at Brockworth, which is on the A46 between Gloucester and Stroud. Look at www.cheese-rolling.co.uk for maps etc.
www.whatsonwhen.com/events/~31298.jml says you can get bus 10 or 30 from Gloucester. However, it's on bank holiday Monday, so you need to check whether any buses will be running (they often have a very limited/ no service on bank holidays). I suggest you email/phone the Gloucester tourist information office and ask them about buses(google the UK pages on www.google.co.uk for gloucester tourist information). Otherwise, your only option is a taxi, which might be quite expensive.
Also, do be aware that the event has, on occasion, been cancelled by the police (on safety grounds, although I have no idea what criteria they use).
Hope this helps a bit.
