I'm know London pretty well but have never been to Manchester. In any event I and my partner have the option of landing in Manchester at the start of May and leaving from London at the start of June. We'd probably spend the last week in London but the rest of the time is wide open. We're not into long hikes, although a relaxing country ramble or two would be fine. Urban life suits us well. Any suggestions?
Looking to visit England this summer to visit a friend and wanted to know what some of the best hikes are in this area. It doesn't have to be in the Lake District but from what I've researched it looks like a great place to go.
Wanted to get some good suggestions from anyone that may know.
I am interested in a full day hike but also would like to know of an over night or 2 to 3 day hike/backpacking route that would be fun scenic and rewarding. I was in England last year and I visited London…
Two weeks ago, I posted an item asking for help in planning a London city tour during our 11-hour Sunday layover at Heathrow. We have never been to London. I received many very helpful responses and I am very appreciative.
Based largely on those responses, I have developed the following plan. I will now appreciate any feedback regarding its feasibility, any risks, and any ideas for improvements. Luggage will be checked through to our final destination, so it is not an issue. A major…
My partner and I will be travelling from NZ on a trip to Japan, the UK and Canada in April this year. My partner has a Belgian passport which will expire very soon - February - so we are exploring the possible option of her applying for a Belgian '12 month temporary passport' given the expected turn-around time for a new 'full passport'.
My only concern with this option is that I've read some countries have issues accepting temporary passports.
Unfortunately I have been unable to find…
I've got a trip planned to South Africa this October - as part of it, I've managed to build in a 14 hour 50 minute layover on the way there (6:30am to 9:20pm) at LHR airport.
I've got a nearly identical layover on the way back as well (5:30am-8:20pm) - also at LHR.
I figure that will be enough time to leave the airport and explore London for a bit during each of those layovers.
- Luggage is getting checked through to my destination in both cases - I will only…
In late February, we will be arriving at Heathrow at 7:00 AM and departing at 5:30 PM on a Sunday.
We would like to leave the airport and do a quick guided tour of London. We will appreciate any advice/suggestions that anyone can provide.
When we were in Amsterdam Schiphol, there were kiosks in the terminal that sold guided tours. This was ideal.
We are not at all familiar with London.
Thanks in advance.
Hi, I'll be in the Lake District in mid-may 2015. I'm looking at staying in the towns Windermere, Grasmere, Keswick and Caldbeck. However I'm having trouble finding accommodations online and thus I was wondering if anyone here would be able to help me.
I'm looking for advice on specific places to stay, preferably with online booking available. I'm a solo backpacker who's looking for the cheapest places to stay.
If anyone has any additional advice for me, that would be helpful as well!
