Looking to travel the sights of southern England in early July 2018. We plan to travel by public transport as we're a bit nervous to drive in the uk on our first trip. Here's a loose plan of our itinerary- any advice before I move forward with details?
- Arrive London gatwick. Stay London 5 nights. Includes day trips to Windsor and Leeds Castle along with major highlights in central London.
- travel to Dorset via Portsmouth to visit naval museum. Stay in Dorset (maybe swanage or…
If there is a train strike the day I want to travel does it mean that there is a reduced service or do no trains run at all that day.
If there is a reduced service am I able to board some other train from the same company using the ticket I bought for the cancelled train? I understand I might have to stand up!
Hi, I am travelling to England in the Summer from July 7 to July 14 with my family. I would like to hang out go to a club or just get exposed to the night life in England! Would love to hear from any locals, I live in NYC and we I can also hang out with you if you ever go to NYC! :)
Question, what would be the time vs cost benefits the following two travel plans? We’re going to spend two nights in London but then we want to see the following cities: Bath, Oxford, Stratford Upon Avon, and then a two night (one whole day) stay in Liverpool. The order is inconsequential. My question is whether it would make more sense to stay in London nightly and take trains to and back from those locations each day, and then train or car to Liverpool at the end where we would stay two nights…
2 senior ladies using a BritRail England pass in May to do circle tour of England /Wales over 23 days. We will have spent first 4 days in Carlisle seeing Hadrian's Wall with the AD122 bus service and doing a train trip around the Cumbrian coast with a stop for the Ravenglass steam train. At end of 23 days will have another 10 days in Scotland before flying home from Glasgow. We would like to start and finish in Carlisle.
Taking the Carlisle-Setlle Line and on to Leeds is it best to go
...and probably applies to similar places in SE England.
I thought it would be simple going to Heathrow Airport on the train from Cambridge. Just buy a ticket, have a relaxing train ride, and step off refreshed at the airport front door.
Its not that simple, your train ticket takes you to London Kings X, here you must take the tube to Paddington, and then take the airport train to Heathrow. Fifty quid, thank you.
So, I looked at the bus. Direct bus from Cambridge to the Heathrow Terminal…

I'm trying to find my ideal afternoon tea place in London (to book for September), can you please help me? ;-)
These are my "must have":
Venue: british taste, elegant (wood, mirrors etc) or even shabby chic (so no modern/minimal/design)
Food: all the classics, obviously can't miss the scones and clotted cream
There must be a multi layers porcelain cake stand (I saw some places have just sad flat trays ;-)
(Plus : better if all the porcelain are vintage/flowered)
Budget: under £ 30 would be great but…
