Mainly for OC's interest, this is their schedule, as 'written' by Jay
Thurs - arrive around lunchtime (to R). Lunch at [redacted rude word] Museum. ([redacted] waffles!). do the R shops. Possibly try the normal public bus system to go to a nice park about 20min from R on the bus. (An adventure!). Go up the tower. Supper and night at Exeter hotel.
Fri - early transfer to Eldhestar. Ride in the morn (and maybe the afternoon if can afford!!). after riding walk down to the local village (where the MNers say is a good GRoCERY SHOP!!) - it's a 30min walk. Supper and night at Eldhestar.
Sat - ride in the morning. Taken back to R lunchtime - check into The Grand. Do the tower/park if not got round to on Thursday. We have a pretty 'free afternoon' which is nice. A lot of our possible schedules involved crazy rushing from one activity to the next - so much so, we felt it was starting to get more 'stressful' than enjoyable (trying to fit too much in!) - quite aside from the cost mounting up. As our afternoon will be leisurely, we may check out the Fish Restaurant tonight. (Apparently you have to get there to start queuing at 5:30!) Night at the Grand.
Sun - leisurely breakfast at Grand !! Picked up at 10 for our ATV adventure trip (which is near the Blue Lagoon). Be dropped back off at BL around lunchtime - we will then go into the BL for a couple of hours. Bus back to R - a drink in the bar and supper at the Grand. Northern Lights tour at 9pm.
Mon (ver tired after little sleep!) - early back to airport
