TIP If you are looking to do conference on a budget, we would recommend you look at the coach plus hotel holiday packages offered by several companies. The packages usually include coach travel plus bed, breakfast and dinner in a local hotel.
National Holidays have trips from the North West. For example, they are curently offering three night packages in the Grand hotel departing Fri 7 June from Manchester (also picking up Altrincham, Ashton-under-Lyne, Manchester, Oldham, Stockport) for £191 for a single room or £169 per person sharing. There is a similar deal in the Britannia hotel for £199 per person sharing.
Shearings Holidays have a three-night trips departing from the South East on Fri 7 June and Returning Monday 10 June, at £171 per person based on two sharing a twin or double room at the Norbruck Hotel.

Coachholidays.com offer a two-night package at the Clifton Hotel from £119 (based on two sharing) departing Chesterfield, Mansfield, Sutton-in-Ashfield, Rotherham and Sheffield. There are supplements for en-suite.
To find packages departing from your area, we suggest you google 'Coach holidays to Scarborough from x'. Happy bargain hunting!
Obviously, we would prefer it if you did not drive to conference unless you have a disability which makes it essential. If you must come by car, please offer a lift to other members in your area. You can do this via the Green Party Liftshare scheme.
