I haven't a lot of time now with packing to get to and all, but heres an old photo from Leicester. Some people hand out fliers right there and in case you can't tell, many people drop the papers rather soon after they are given them. This is funny because the poster on the fence describes a 50 pound fine for littering.
Oh and a tip, when deciding between a big and less-big pack for a trip in a few days, buy both and return whichever doesn't fit all your stuff in it.* I decided it would be better not to learn this the hard way.
*Due to recent comments, I must mention that this is only a good idea if you have a mother who loves you enough to return the other one while your on your way.
