Husband & I are planning a 20-day trip in spring; aim to visit Cornwall, Welsh border/Hereford, perhaps Scotland. Traveling mainly by train, which looks do-able by National Rail map. We are middle-aged, good walkers; enjoy nature, historical sites, used bookstores. I'm keen to see textiles/quilts; husband loves industrial revolution & machine shops. Is the Two Together rail card good value for short-term travelers? Any suggestions or tips for traveling by rail in the west? Affordable small…
I'm starting my journey from Barcelona and ending it in Amsterdam. I'm planning to visit London, France and the Netherlands. However, the air tickets from Barcelona to London is very expensive. Would it be wiser to
1. Take a train from Barcelona to Paris, get a 2 way ticket and train from Paris to London, and London back to Paris before proceeding to places like Lyon, Belgium and Netherlands.
2. Take a train from Barcelona to Paris, train from Paris to London, fly from London to Rotterdam…
I am going to be travelling to Grasmere from Toronto, Ontario and have never been to the UK before. I am a student and on a budget so I am wondering if there are any tips or suggestions in regards to the cheapest way to get there. I am going to be volunteering at Dove Cottage for three weeks, alone. Are there many things to see in this region, and what are any suggestions for affordable day trips? I will have weekends off. Thanks for any help!
I will be in London for a few days in late October. I'd like to make two day trips - one to Canterbury and one to Brighton. Take the train down in the morning and back in the afternoon. Can anyone recommend a good walking tour guide in each place that I can contact and engage the services of for an intelligent and interesting day in each place.
My son is presently doing a solo trip around Europe, first time out of Australia, and I'm looking at booking tickets on line for him from London to Hull, Hull to Manchester, then onto Edinburgh. I've booked before with SNCF in France and am sent an email with printable ticket, from what I can gather its different in England. Question, how does my son actually acquire his ticket once I've booked. I've read something about ticket machines, but don't get how it would work, does he print something…
I'm staying in London for two weeks in Novemebr and want to go on a four day trip and stay in Brighton or somewhere similar before I go to Paris.
The dates will be 30.11.15 to 04.12.2015 then off to Paris same day.
The only place I've heard that's good to train from London is Brighton. Is this the best place to visit for 4 days from London? Or should I mix it up? I know we all have different tastes etc but I'm always keen to hear what other people would recommend.
I would love…

Any help appreciated :)
I can choose to study for a year in either Cambridge or Oxford. Which has the best rental accommodations, amenities, night life, public transportation both local and trains to London? Also, how will prices for rent, consumer goods, transportation, etc., compare?
There is a similar thread on this topic, but I haven't quite found the answer to my situation yet...
I am a Med student in NZ, and I'm planning my overseas elective in the UK, which I will do in August/September 2016. My placement in the UK will probably be for 4 weeks.
Part of this is in a remote area, and they require me to have a vehicle.
So I thought: that's fine, I'll just rent.
But things in life aren't always easy, I guess.
I understand that most companies in the UK require me to have…
