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…

We are spending 2 nights in York on our 3 week trip, but will only have 1 day to see the sights since we will arrive in the evening. My plan is to take the free walking tour in the morning, eat some lunch and then see the Castle Museum. My husband likes to shop, so we will have to allot time for that on Stonegate, (I think that's the shopping street/district), plus see The Shambles. Are the stores open in the evening? I know I'm missing a lot, so I want to know if I should substitute something…

We are having trouble trying to buy tickets from Lymington to Yarmouth online (from US)...we enter everything but it gets spit back each time because of improper phone numbers (I think). I have tried our US numbers, our friends numbers in London, all kinds of numbers...but nothing works; nor does leaving it blank.

Does anyone have suggestion? Or else, the likelihood of problems (or success) if we just show up (on a June Sunday afternoon) to buy tickets right at the ferry in Lymington? We're…

I'm planning a visit to the Lake District in early-mid August and will not have a car. I'd like to base myself in 2-3 villages with hostels and take easy to moderate day hikes. Can you recommend towns that have trails easy to reach from the hostel/village on foot? Or buses if necessary? I prefer villages that have YHA hostels, as I'll travel solo but like to meet people and perhaps do some hiking with others. Thanks!

I would like to apologise to the various previous thread creators who wanted information about temperatures in Scotland in May. In my responses I excluded the possibility of temperatures reaching 29C.

I know there is an observatory where you can make a reservation (and they bring you hot chocolate and such and blankets to watch it) I was wondering if there were any other good places with low…

My husband and I will be moving to Cambridge, UK, in July 2017.
Having never been there, as we are moving there from South Africa, can anyone please give advice on cost of living for 2 as well as a good location to rent.
I will be working as a professional, travelling around the city for work, but offices based in Station Place.

We want to budget beforehand, based on my starting salary, how much we can pay on rent, so need some help on what to expect to spend per month on necessities like…

I'll be in London from July 2-9. That coincides with Wimbledon...and I used to be on my high school tennis team. I might want to treat myself to tickets. A colleague mentioned that they're hard to procure. "We got last minute standing room tickets." She made it sound like it was a combination of luck and cunning.

So how do I get tickets? What are these last minute tickets (do they come at a discount or something?). I'd love to do this...if it's reasonable!
