Would it be silly to drive from Brighton to Manchester and back in a day?

Well would it?

My daughter’s recovering from glandular fever so I don’t want to make her get the train or coach or whatever

  • Yes it would be silly
  • No it would be perfectly sensible

5 hours? I don’t think you should do this.

Go up the night before and turn it into a fun trip


M25 and M6 both ways in a day. Madness. Best case scenario 10hrs driving. Could easily be 14

depends if the 2 hours you’ll spend there will be worth it i guess

Exactly - not a gruelling red bull fuelled 10 hour hell trip.

What’s the context here?

I actually quite like a long day of driving - I’ve done it before when I’ve gone to collect something I’ve bought from Ebay or whatever.

If you get some good podcasts/playlists, driving can be a entertaining way to spend a day. Plus, if you’ve got a strong reason you can justify it

Yeah if you’re going to hit both rush hours: not so good. But it’s the sort of things football fans do all the time. Perfectly do-able on a weekend or if you avoid the rush hours.

good dadding imo


I get a bit sleepy driving tbh

I’ve driven from Surrey to Manchester and back in a day to go to a football game. It’s doable but i probably wouldn’t do it again.

Seems like a nice thing to do

Seems sensible to me

It’s just to take my daughter back to uni

Oh definitely do it. She’d probably appreciate the gesture and the company too if she’s not been well.

Oh I’m deff gonna do it, it’s just whether I decide to spend the night in a travel lodge or something and drive back the next day


Ah okay. TBH I’d probably do it there and back in a day (as long as I was in good health that day etc) - you could always check in at a service station Travelodge or even have an hour’s kip in the car if the return leg is getting a bit much.
