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.

I am currently studying in Nottingham England. I am thinking of traveling across the UK anywhere i am flexible.
i hate the one day trips the uni gave us. i want to travel with no rules or destinations for a few days. 10 days or so.
the problem is that i can't find adventurous people. all of my friends are fat and slow. they want to stay.
i am flexible and outgoing.
let's get lost!
My husband has a meeting in Edinburgh, and two of my adult daughters will be visiting us while we are there. What are some of the less touristy things to do there? Do we need to rent a car? Any restaurants you'd recommend for foodies? Thank you!
We are looking at 7-8 days in Ireland coming to or from my wife's hometown in Spain in June. She was an Au Pair in Dublin 40 yeas ago so will want to show me things. But then we would go to one or maybe two places. We would prefer public transportation but could rent a car. We like history, culture and natural beauty. What suggestions do folks have?

Hello I will take the railway to Bristol arriving at 09:30 and depart at 15:00.
I have had a look at the tourism website. I would like to see the SS Great Britain and the Clifton Bridge. I am interested in the harbourfront and possibly seeing the street with the longest set of independent shops in the UK.
Is this all possible?
I will be backpacking for a year with my partner starting from July in Spain and heading out of Spain at the end of August/ beginning of September this year. We plan on taking £10,000 (5k each). After Spain, our budget will probably be around £8,500 (We have family there we can stay cheap, hence not that much to stay in Spain for 1-2 months)
We have a plan of backpacking through South East Asia starting around January (best for weather etc). However, the problem we have is what we do…
We are spending 4 days with our son, daughter in-law and grandson in London from 17th to 21st July. We then pick up a hire car and travel from London to Edinburgh, where we are staying on the 1st and 2nd of August, before flying out on the 3rd August.
