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…

My wife and I will be touring the UK and Ireland this July. Contrary to my usual practice, I will rent a car once in Bath and once in Galway. I've got an iphone 6s with ios 9.3.1, and I use the Apple maps app's point-to-point navigation feature locally here in the US. I'm satisfied with it.

But I have no chance to test it in the UK or anywhere else out of the US. So I'm just curious if others of you have used it outside the US. If so, are you satisfied with it? Do you find it reasonably…

My wife and I will fly to Dublin from Southampton in late July, and we are planning to take a bus directly from the airport to Galway. How important is it to pre-reserve tickets for such buses? I have found there are at least 2-3 bus lines that we could choose from, and their websites always urge you to reserve in advance, so they get to hold onto your money longer! I'm not opposed to that, and I do like the certainty of knowing I won't show up at the queue to board a full bus and have to…

Hey guys, :)

I'm from Germany and I want to go to Great Britain from Novembr to December 2016 to improve my English skills.
There I want to work during this time and my question is: how can I find work there? Should I search work when I will be in England or should I search from Germany?
But I don't want to work via work'n'travel websites.

Do you have any ideas?

Thanks for your answer! :)

How crowded are the Cotswolds in July? We'll be staying in Chipping Campden for 4 nights and hope to see Stratford, Sezincote (HT property), Kiftsgate(gardens). Should we steer clear and head for Devon instead. We only have four days befor we head to London. Taking classes in Oxford prior to this for a week.
thanks

Hello, all, my first post on the forum for years! Am going on a road trip to the south of England at the end of May. How are the Roman Baths in Bath for crowds? Rammed? Or are there times when you don't have to fight your way around. Looks like they are very much part of the day trip circuit from London, along with Stonehenge?
Many thanks.

Hello, My 12 year old son loves history and all things about London excite him. I'm looking for ideas to keep my 8 year old daughter interested. I was thinking of the London Eye, English tea, Buckingham Palace... Any thoughts on what would keep the interest of an 8 y.o. girl who's not so much into history? We have 4 1/2 full days and one of them will be spent going to Stonehenge/Bath. Also, any thoughts on places to go for a budget friendly but still pretty traditional English tea, that's…
