I went to the first one and had a mighty fine time!
I drove down every day as it was do-able, although I was a bit miffed with the parking situation, I had to keep going back every 4 hours to top up the money AND had to make small adjustments to my number plate when I entered it in the little machine (Basically, lying and taking my chances!) as it said there was no return for 2 hours.
Maybe somesort of arrangement could be made with the council this time??
