Please don`t suggest contact with Billing as I want some genuine forum users feedback first.

All the services at Billing are very good, thats why its so popular, mini market, chip shop, restaurants, loads of WC and shower blocks etc. fishing, evening entertainment the list goes on and on. I could complain about the place even if I would like to use a different venue.

As for Transitmania, I think the thread from last year speaks for itself :D

I've been going for 15 years now to the Biggest show they have.....

I've never been in a dirty toilet yet!

There are cleaners in the toilets 16 hours a day when I'm there!

Not saying that's for every weekend though!

I'm off to Billing on Sunday so, will give a true report when I get back,

if the standards have dropped off since last year........
