Welcome to the UK, described by Lonely Planet in the latest UK guide as "simply one of the most beautiful islands on earth". You'll find that whilst people can appear flippant and/or sarcastic on this branch, it's only part of the unique British sense of humour so don't take it personally.

Please read this thread first before you ask a question, hopefully you'll find your answer already inside!

Feel free to add anything relevant to the thread too. Before we start though, here's some advice from…

I plan on moving to Glasgow in April 2017 for two years, the plan is to go over on a "Youth Mobility Visa 5". I'm going to stay in an Airbnb for the first month as I figured that would be the best way to get to know what area to live in and to also get a job. Does anyone have any tips/advice on working/living in Glasgow? Is it easy to get a job? I only plan on casual/shift style work as i want to be able to spend time going on mini trips around Scotland. I would hate to have to come home after…

I am from Australia and planning on travelling the UK for around 6 months.
Can anyone recommend a good travel money card for me to use? One that doesn't hit you up with too many fees.

Thanks so much

So Brexit has caused the pound to fall to a 30 year low. And I want to help our neighbors across the pond by pumping some currency into the economy. I also want to take a trip of a lifetime, too. Me: I just got laid off and have a nice severance package, so I need to time this so I can maximize my money.

So, when is a good time to go? When do you think that the pound will have reached its trough? And what are the best way to make travel arrangements to take advantage of this turn of…

Thank you in advance for responding. Even though I can and do explore tourist guides, having your opinion is most useful. Is August top tourist season in Ireland, what can I expect? Iss it crowded, unpleasant. How would you spend 10 days in Ireland?

Thanks, Eric

I am staying near Lambeth North tube station. I plan to take a day trip to visit a friend in Biggleswade. I have checked online and the return fare seems to be £29.50. Does this fare include the tube ride from Lambeth North to St Pancras or will I have to use my Oyster card to pay for this part of the journey in addition to the apparent fare of £29.50 ?
It is my third day in London and I now think I have almost got the hang of London's impressive public transport system.
