    Sounds good here, I will also be bringing along a friend with an Alpina Z4M Roadster.

    Just need a time for meet up and a post code / location for meet up as not from the area at all.

    Sounds like a great day out Mick and we're looking forward to it. Once you've checked out the timings, if there's any room for it, I'm sure no-one would mind if you extended the mileage - we all love to cruise our Zeds :coolsteer) :D

    soup/main
    main/sweet
    on sundays he offers 3 roast selections.
    topside of roast beef +veg

    hope we can park in good place to get some nice pics done.
    then walk the castle and gardens.
    we found out today that on the day we plan to visit they have a jousting event on :-bd
    http://www.rockinghamcastle.com/92/Jousting_&_Medieval_Living_History_Village /
    hope to speak to them tomorrow to sort out the finer points.
    afternoon tea is available for those who would like it can be arranged either & rockingham or sondes arms have to speak to rockingham about it but the sondes arms are happy to do it for £4.95 for cream tea or £7.95 tea sandwich/scone but hope to get a deal on this ;) but just have to see how many interested.
