I was wondering if anybody has any suggestions of "must-sees" in England. Cities, sites etc.
I've done most of the main tourist sites in London, but if anybody knows of any less-known sites that they would recommend that would be much appreciated!

My wife and I are going to London arriving June 21st and staying in the city for 6 days. We are budget travellers but we know London is not a budget city at all. We were wondering if someone know some apartments for rent in which we can cook to avoid eating out every day.
Also, this is our first time in London and we were wondering in which area to stay. We know London is a really big city and thats why we are asking.
We are a 30 year old couple, no kids, we are budget travellers. We enjoy visiting sights and nightlife.
Thanks in advance for any advice!

When I lived in Stockholm, I often take this cheap cruise line called Viking line to Estonia/Helsinki, where you can cheap alcohol and very cheap rooms with quite a bit young people.
After googling around, I found a DFDS line that goes from Amsterdam to New Castle, but it seems like a very family oriented from their website description. Anyone who's been on that line have any experience of the atmosphere? and Is there any other lines that goes to London or Brighton?
Hi all. Thinking of doing the St Bees to Robin Hoods Bay walk across Northern England.
I know the weather is never reliable & it can rain & rain & rain, but is there a time of year when this is less likely?
I did the walk once before in Sept '98 & we had a couple of days of rain (not too bad), but talked to others who had been thoroughly rained-out in June. Was I lucky or is Sept as good as it gets?
On May 15, I'll be flying from Canada to Cape Town, South Africa but will have a 10-hour layover at Heathrow. My flight arrives at 9:35am and leaves at 7:30pm. Rather than just hang around the airport the entire time, I'd like to see a bit of London and have a bite of lunch in the city. Ideally, I'd like to stroll around a bit but I'd be perfectly happy just to see Big Ben and have fish & chips and a pint in a traditional English pub. However, I don't want to risk missing my connecting flight and I'm not sure what will happen with my luggage in the meantime. Given the time constraints, will I be able to venture downtown or is it better to just stay in the airport?

I'm researching the cheapest way to drive from Denmark to a point in England and back. Right now I'm looking at the channel tunnel car train. It seems it is cheaper to take a one day round trip than it is to take an ordinary one way ticket. Why wouldn't I do this? Is there any way they can sanction you for not using the return trip?
Can anyone give me advice on how to travel from Whitby to York, in North Yorkshire by some form of public transport?
I can't hire a car there and the train and National Express service travel a very circuitous route.
Is there a local bus service connecting the two towns.
We are probably traveling on a Saturday or Sunday.
I did already write this - but it doesn't seem to have come through (so apologies if I've posted this twice!).
We are taking our 9 year olds to the Tower of London in September this year - and I have tickets for us to attend the Ceremony of the Keys in the Tower of London.
My question is whether the Yeoman Warder tour would also be worth attending (when we do our proper Tower of London visit earlier in the day (or another day) - or whether it would be similar to the Ceremony of the Keys.
I'm embarking on my first trip to London in a few weeks. My flight is going to arrive early in the morning but I can't check-in to the room I'm renting (via Air BNB) until late afternoon. Are there train stations or popular areas that have luggage lockers or luggage leave services? I'm having quite a bit of difficulty locating this sort of information. I'd hate to waste a day just because I'm saddled with a suitcase.
My travel agent, Flight Centre HK suggested we get a 3 day city pass since we are going to be in London for 5 days. It says that it covers most of the big tourist destinations. Is it worth doing the city pass with travel?
I would like to have a printed cycle route from Dover to central London and back (not exactly the same route back).
I tried some things online but it is not evident.
I'll be visiting Liverpool, Manchester and York in Late May and I'll have a car.
I'm looking for nice landscapes (even better if it's rugged, gloomy or melancholic), pretty litte old villages (as untouristy as possible), quaint old towns.
I was thinking going to Durham, Lake District National Park or Yorkshire Dales National Park.
I have a real hard time deciding whichi area to go to so any help yould be very much appreciated:)
I think it's important to say that the less touristy the better for me:)
I don't mind driving a lot (I'll have 4 or 5 days).
thanks you very much everyone.
Is it possible to travel from Heathrow Airport to the Arsenal by tube on the Picadilly line without changing trains?
