    Hi, I made a few comments in reply to another thread and asked for some advice - didn't get any!
    so will ask again.
    Heading in next couple of days from Birkenhead to Dover - leaving Birkenhead at 7pm, for Dover around 4am. == Will want/need to stp somewhere for a wee snooze for about an hour, probably before we approach the M25 or just on it. Are there service areas that should be avoided? and any that are highly recommended as being suitable to park up at without any problems or over zealous attentants?
    Regards Weejohn

    Hi Weejohn,

    We've never had a problem on any services on the M25 :thumb: I think South Mimms is the 1st services you'll hit on the M25 if your coming down the M1.
    If your only staying max 2hrs you won't have to pay :BigGrin:

    Good Luck & have a safe journey!

    So if your coming from Birkenhead I presume you'll be going
    M6:thumb:
    M1:thumb:
    M25:thumb:
    etc..if so I would say go that way and have a break at South Mimms ...bearing in mind if you leave at @7pm by the time you get to South Mimms it will be around 11pm so it could be full up on the parking area:Sad:...or even try a stop at M1 junction 9 at the truck stop you may be able to squeeze in with the big boys!!:Doh:
    As an ex truck driver there are a lot of places if you PM me I could give you a few ideas.:Wink:..happy trails mate:thumb:
