I'm afraid I'm flying back to Finland Thursday evening. I need to be
at Bracknell during working hours Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
I've got a hotel reservation at Reading because it's impossible to get
to Bracknell in the middle of the night.
The last reasonable train connection for me would leave Cambridge at
22.31, but that's probably the same for Monday as well. I don't know
if I can make it to Cambridge before 19.39 on Wednesday, which makes
it quite a short stay. Maybe if I try to have a fast day I could make
it 19.09 or even 18.36.
Conclusion: I'd like it to be Monday, so I'm not spending over half
the evening on a train. I _can_ do Wednesday, if no one's going to be
there on Monday. I'm just arriving Monday morning with the purpose of
having some consecutive hours of free time on UK soil.
