Preston to Blackburn - options?  (2 Answers)

Hi there,

I'm wanting to go from The Universty of Lancashire's campus in Preston (PR1) to see a friend at St. Mary's College Blackburn (BB1), on the 31st of this month. I'm wondering what the cheapest/fastest way to do this is. Is there a particular bus line that I could take, and where's the best place I could catch this bus?

Thanks and all the best, Hashim

Confused about train travel  (7 Answers)

I'm a Canadian planning a trip to retrace my English roots in May/June. The folks in the Yorshire forum have already helped a great deal, but there's one question best dealt with here.

The wife and I are landing at Heathrow on May 29th at about noon. We plan to immediately take trains to get us to Milnrow (near Rochdale). The National Rail web site has a trip planner tool. The schedules haven't been updated yet, so I just picked a Tuesday in February to get an example itinerary. It shows
Depart London Euston at 16:05 arrive Manchester Piccadilly at 18:25
Depart Manchester Piccadilly (by Metro) at 18:25 arrive Manchester Victoria at 19:02
Depart Manchester Victoria at 19:07 arrive Milnrow at 19:42

Which raises several questions...

1) I've never been to Manchester so I don't know the station layouts or anything. How can I arrive on one train platform at 18:25 and also be leaving on a metro at exactly the same time?

2) Assuming I do get to Victoria at 19:02 I only have 5 minutes until the train to Milnrow leaves at 19:19:07. Is this enough time? (Bear in mind that my wife is 60 and I'm 63 and we'd be carrying all our luggage with us and dead tired from a day and a half of travel)

3) Assuming all's Ok after leaving London, how do I get from Heathrow to Euston in the first place? What method and how long it would take?

Thanks in advance for your help.

University of Central Lancaster  (6 Answers)

Could someone please answer some specific questions on Lancaster Univ?

1. How good is the Journalism school in the University? I am planning to do a Post Grad course in Journalism and would like to evaluate various Uni's all over England before commiting myself....

2. What chances, if any, of staying on and working in Lancaster after such a course? Is the Newspaper/Print Media / Television / Radio industry well developed in and around Preston (well, in the immediate area to the University of Central Lancashire?)

3. How high is the University rated on a national scale?

4. How costly is it to live in Lancashire?

Thanks very much for all your time and effort. I really need the information.
