Need help deciding: Daytrip to London from Paris or Arrive to London then Paris?

Hello everyone, I'm in need of help in making a decision again. I am confirmed for April 3 (Friday) to May 3 for my accommodation in Paris but haven't finalized the booking yet. Also haven't booked a flight for Europe yet, I will be coming from Los angeles. This will be my first time in London and my 4th time in Paris. I need to be in Paris 4 days/wk but my weekends are free. London, I bet, is a very beautiful city, and I wanted to see it, although I know this will just be my first. I want to…

Lord Mayor's Show 2014

Hey guys!

I'll be in London on November 8th, and just found out that the Lord Mayor's Show will be on that same day.

Is it worth going? Is the city too caotic on that day?

Thanks for the help!

Hello all,

I was wondering if anybody knows if its possible, or how easy it is to get a job at a london hostel, working for a bed and/or drinks, food.

I will be there for around 2 months in november/december and was hoping to get some job like this, whether it be working at the bar, cleaning, behind the desk or anything available!

Does anybody have any experience with this as to whether its possible, and if so which hostels they can reccomend that might do this?

All help greatly…

Where to stop in the north - Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds? Other suggestions?

Hi folks,

We'll soon have a few days to stop on the drive between Blackpool and the Yorkshire moors - just can't decide where to stay. We're interested in checking out the scenery and maybe doing the odd gentle walk (weather permitting), visiting significant sites (ancient and otherwise - industrial heritage is cool), going to art galleries, eating heaps and indulging in coffee shops. Extras if possible: would be good to catch a ballet, or a life drawing session, or probably just a good movie.

Lake District in November

Hi!

I will be travelling around the UK and Ireland from mid October to early December. I don't mind wet and cold weather, luckily, but was wondering - will the Lake District be ok in November/mid-November time? After Ireland, I will be travelling from Holyhead up to Scotland and thought of making a stop at the Lakes along the way. Would it be open, and worth it? Or is there somewhere else you could recommend? Is Manchester worth visiting?

Thanks and best!

London Travel Guidebook Reccomendations

Hi,

I am looking for a good travel guidebook about London which covers history and places to see, but not the main stream, commercial ones, which has nothing in it.

Thanks in advance,

Gatwick Airport to Victoria Coach Station

Hi Everyone,

Can you give me some information about getting from Gatwick to Victoria Station? I have checked previous posts but can't find anything specific about that. I want to find the cheapest possible way to get from the airport to the coach station. I would also like it to be fast but price is more important than time, in this instance. I have only arrived at Gatwick once before and it cost me around 30 pounds to get to where I was going in London. That was shocking, also considering the…

Is London the only city worth visiting in England?

Having noticed that when people visit England, they only go to London, I have prepared a list of cities, all with
200, 000 or more people, in England. Following that is a list of the airports with the most traffic. If you havent got a Lonely Planet Guide, and you still insist on visiting cities, rather than the countryside which is England's greatest attraction, I would just like to let you know that the yellow bits on the map underneath London extend for several hundred miles North and West.…
