Guide: Thank you everybody for your attention. I hope you’re all looking forward to arriving in the town. I thought you might like to know a few things while we’re still on the coach – and it’ll help to pass the time on our journey! OK, as you know, we’re staying at the Park Hotel. It’s comfortable and friendly. We’re booked in for three nights. Now, I’m aware that not everyone wants breakfast there, so if you do want it, you should tell the Hotel that you do the night before. We’re making our own arrangements for dinner each evening, and there’s a café open at the Hotel most of the time if you want a drink or a snack. There’s also a very pleasant lounge on the ground floor, with a collection of fascinating paintings. And then I hope you’re going to enjoy the various activities that are lined up. However, I do have to tell you that there have been some changes since the original programme. For one, because it’s been restored and is therefore closed to the public, we won’t be going to the castle after all, I’m afraid. However, there’s plenty else to see, and the gardens are still open. Something we’ve been able to add to the programme is for  Saturday, when a local historian will give us a lecture on famous people from the town. I don’t know who that includes yeti So, to free up the time for that, we’ve made another little amendment, and changed the trip to the antiques show, that was due for then on to Sunday – actually, I think that’ll make for a more relaxed programme, anyway. We’re leaving the rest of Sunday free for you to wander around as you wish. One place you might like to try is the art gallery, because it’s got a huge display of plci postcarde – you can’t really send them home to your family and friends, but it’s interesting, and sometimes funny, to see what people used to send. Well, that’s a lot of changes.

I thought it could be useful to try and get your bearings now, before we actually arrive, so I’ll give you a few pointers on your maps. OK, first things first – the Park Hotel, because I assume you’ll want to deposit your luggage before anything else. We’ll be driving into the town from the west, and stopping at the bus station. To get to the hotel you must go straight down the High Street towards.the railway bridge, and after the bridge, if you are on left  you’ll soon see it on the right. As I say, it’s a nice place. You can check in, see your rooms, relax a little. There are a couple of interesting little shops nearby. There aren’t any Internet facilities at the hotel, I’m afraid, so if you want to send any emails, you’ll need to get yourselves to the Internet cafe. In fact, if you want to do that first, it’s easy, because it’s near the bus station, on the Corner towards the right. of Curtis Lane and Cramer Street. So, once you’ve done that – if you do that – then I suppose you’ll be ready to do a bit of exploring. You’ve got your basic maps, but you may want to get more information, and the Tourist Information Office is the place to do that. It’s up around the train station area. From the bus station, you could go up any of the streets to the left – Cadogan Road, Earl Street or Duke Street. The Office is directly facing the train station, ong_ei _comer with Earl street. They’ve got all sorts of brochures and leaflets about local attractions, and tickets for sale. They even sell some locally-produced jams and chocolates. And a last pointer at this stage is our venue for dinner tonight the Royal House Restaurant. This is conveniently located in the very centre of town. In fact, you’ll no doubt pass it as you’re walking around beforehand. In relation to the bus station, it’s not far. Going down the High Street if you pass the corner with Cromwell Road, then the next junction crossroads with Duke Street and Runton Road. and it’s there -you’ll be able to see its rather grand entrance over on the left corner. The food and the service there are both excellent, so it promises to be an enjoyable evening. Well, we’re just coming into the town now, so …
