Welcome from Pamela from Addingham near Ilkley Yorkshire ..lived in Bingley for 20 years ..house in Capestrano .Done many different flights over the years but now usually drive to Stansted and flight to Pescara, fly on Sunday's the road journey is easy and quite. Sometimes do the flight from the North UK  to Rome but the drive is a pain, but if we do we avoid the week days and travel at the weekends when the roads are quieter.

Hi yes its seems the road to Stansted is going to be a busy one for us until a northern hub is opened.

We do the opposite to Pamela as we tend to be here most of the time so do not go to Stansted by car as it would be there for months... That being the case we use the train hence the post. What we have found is that it's much quicker from our location to either get a lift or taxi to Wakefield/Leeds i.e. straight to the eastcoast line rather than use local trains. Still it is a long journey and the alternatives we have used e.g. via Rome to Manchester is no quicker. But either way it is still well worth the effort ;D

You might want to look at the flights from Bari to Liverpool too. We have found the drive there good, and, it is easy to find. We have found it much easier getting back home that way, rather than going to Stansted with that looooong drive back up north. But, the flights aren't all year round sadly  ::)
