Not my cup of tea, but a friend has tickets for the Wigan v Man U end of season match but isn't aware of the logistics of getting from Manchester to Wigan and back. The idea is to travel up, get a hotel in Manchester, travel to Wigan on day of match, travel back to Man. in the evening and go out on the lash. How far is Wigan and how best to travel quickly (without bikes)? Is a taxi feasible, if so how much? Any constructive advice gratefully received.
