what time does your tour end?

Might help us to find you a lift up there

Christina - I'll get you over to the hotel on Saturday. Let me know when you need to be picked up. I know what it's like trying to use public transport ina country you're not familiar with. Was stuck at a train station in Boston for 30 minutes wondering where i could find a member of staff to ask

My friend booked it and he said it was for around 9am in the morning. I was reading about Plant Oxford tours online and I heard that they only operate M-F during the week and not weekends? If this is true, perhaps the date is wrong. I do know that my friend sent an email on a short notice (they usually ask for a few month's notice before tours apparently) and said that it was the Southern Ontario MINI club that was coming and then they apparently squeezed us in. I have just sent a PM to my friend to confirm the time and I'll let you know as soon as I know

Thank you so much for your generous offers!! I will figure out my final schedule for the day and let you know! Thanks so much as I have spent the past 48 hours online trying to figure out how I'm going to work this whole transportation part of my trip (not just to the ball) and I can use any help I can get. I'll even pay you for the gas. I posted a thread in the UK Discussion titled "Lilcoopr's Eurotrip" so I don't keep taking this one offtopic - sorry !!

As well: Bob, thanks for posting the link to "thetrainline.com". It has been very helpful! Now, at 6:30am, I'm off to bed. Trip-planning is exhausting sometimes but I'm so excited that I turned my "one week in the UK and charity ball" trip into a 2 month thing including MINI United!


My name is Christina. I am living my dream! I drive Stella: AB 06 MCS w/ pink bonnets, roof, & pink u/j mirrors ! I work @ MINI in Canada. Confessions of a MINIac.

Hi Christina, they do do tours on Saturdays as they offered us a Saturday morning as one of our options, we went for a Tuesday night in the end

We went last week and it was fantastic, you'll love it!
