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…

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…

Good day all,
I'm flying into Edinburgh late June for a conference. I arrive Friday 5pm, fly out the following Friday 5pm, and I have the conference from Monday-Wednesday (with registration Sunday).
What I'm after are some "starters for 10" for the Sat/Sun and Thursday - maybe even the Friday - bearing in mind it's a 30 hour plane trip from NZ and I may well be shattered on arrival. Sort of a sandwich around the conference.

Should I stick to the basic "tourist run" around central Edinburgh on the…

Hello, I'm traveling with my 12 year old son and 8 year old daughter in late July and was wondering how easy it would be to go from London to Dover, sightsee for 2-3 hours, then catch the Eurostar to Paris? If this is not too complicated, what is the best way to get from London to Dover. Currently I don't have any accommodations booked for London yet. Thanks!

How much time does one need to explore Jupiter Artland? I will be staying in Glasgow, and am planning a day trip outside of the city for the day. What I want to accomplish is seeing New Lanark and Jupiter Artland in the same day.

Is this possible? I think I can get to New Lanark at opening time (10:00) and leave to make the bus to Jupiter Artland that arrives there at 2:20 (with a connection in Livingston). But Jupiter Artland closes at 5. Is this enough time, or are the grounds too vast?
