I generally try not to start new threads, but I've pulled old posts and can't find what I need and (being that in 8 weeks from right now we'll be in England) I'm starting to panic.
I'm heading to Newcastle Upon Tyne w/my boyfriend, Friday Nov. 4 and Saturday Nov. 5. We'll going to the soccer/football match.
Is there any hope at all of finding clean, safe, *cheap*, en suite accommodations in the city centre? Every cheap option seems to be full up -- I don't know if that's because of the match or because of Guy Fawlkes night or both or what.
I was hoping to spend about 50GBP, b/c right now that's in line with about $100USD -- but I realize that if there's nothing left I'll probably have to go higher. And city centre is important b/c we have an early train to Manchester that Sunday morning.
We think we've pretty much lined up hotels/B&Bs within our budget for the rest of the trip (Manchester, Liverpool, Oxford, Swindon, London. Tavistock for London based on British Airways holidays price and trip advisor reviews, a B&B for Oxford and Ibis for the others)
If anyone can help I'd be so grateful -- I'm starting to lose hope!
Thanks in advance,
