I'm set to go to Porlock in Somerset for a couple of days in mid-July and I was wondering whether anyone experienced with the area had any suggestions for things to do. We will have a car so can drive a way either side. Thanks!
Shifting Sands is in London for the next two days. It consists of an Arab tent, a landrover and two young women who went on an extended trip around the Mediterranean countries and who have written an excellent book about their experiences. It is well worth visiting.
I can thoroughly recommend the Nightingale Centre, Great Hucklow, if you're looking for a place to stay in the Peak National Park. The Centre is a registered charity: www.thenightingalecentre.org.uk. It's close to several cities but in a quiet area and has a playground for children. The village of Gt. Hucklow is close to Eyam, which is known as 'the Plague Village' and to Tideswell, whose parish church is spectacular and known as The Cathedral of the Peak.
I land at LHR T2 tomorrow at 7:15 and need to get to Jagz by Ascot station for 12:00. Obviously I have time to kill, so figured I'd get myself a slap up full breakfast.
I could of course simply use the Flying Chariot Whetherspoons upstairs in Terminal 2, but does anyone have an alternative suggestion at any point between these two locations please? :)
(I have a fair whack of luggage in tow, so don't really want to head into the centre because after a day out at Ascot I'm off to rural…
We are a family of 5 from Massachusetts, taking the boys to England in August and are just getting around to planning the trip. The boys are all big readers and soccer players/fans with good sense of humor. We are thinking of doing the first 5-6 days in London and then renting a car to see some other areas/towns for the remainder of the trip. We would love to tap into the collective experience and wisdom of folks on the sight for advice on sights, restaurants, etc both in London and…
Plan is for a summer visit (July/August). 17, 15 and 4 year old in tow.
10 days, first time visitors. Trying to keep the traveling to a minimum.
My wife has extended family in the Cotswolds and would like to spend 3-4 days there.
Rest of time in London proper? Dublin seems like a stretch with a preschooler along for the ride?
Any thoughts on what part of town to stay in and whether 6 days in London will be too much stimulation.
I am currently planning my year abroad in university, and though it won't be happening until next year, or maybe even the year after, I want to gather some information so I can be prepared, and most importantly, start saving up for living in London. Also, in case knowing the following would help you answer my questions, I am a 20 years old Canadian student, and study in international management :)
Basically, I would like your help if you are currently or have lived in London…
