Hello Sorry to ask what might seem an obvious question - but am I right to think that if we arrive in Eastbourne on 28th, we can get a mini bus to the start in Winchester at 6.30am, which should get us to Winchester for the 10am start? I can't find an option to book this though - anyone got guidance please? Thanks Karen
