  • Coming by light aircraft is perfectly sensible and sane, you probably won't die, but is a bit silly. Nearest airfields are:
  • I'm coming from Northampton, but will probably make this kinda London-centric as that's the way the UK works.
  • Assuming travelling alone, hackers travelling in groups will be cheaper.
