Europe - UK & Ireland
Messages: 23,611 - Threads: 2,509
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.
Wondering if I can find some advice or suggestions here...
I am interested in planning a trip to see a castle in Ireland. It might sound silly. Heck, I feel kind of silly asking it! But I've always wanted to visit Ireland, and I feel my trip would not be complete without such an experience.
I've begun to research some areas, but figure my best advice may come from all the lovely folk here!
Of course, I would be travelling on a budget, so if available, a cheap or even free venue would be best.
Any suggestions you have would be greatly appreciated!
HELP! We are in the process of planning our UK trip for next year - coming from NZ. We intend to spend 4 weeks there and we'll start in Cornwall - end up in Scotland.
Apart from the costings for the flights and of course the things we want to see and do and accomodation costs (unless we go with a Motorhome option), what would a typical daily spend be? Also, any help with a reputable Motorhome Hire company would be appreciated too.
What is generally standard as far as tipping in Ireland and the UK (Northern Ireland). To be a bit more specific: restaurants, pubs, B & Bs. We'll be doing a car rental so won't be doing any bus excursions, etc.
Hoping I can get a little feedback. Some friends and I are going to be in Ireland from June 26th and flying out of Shannon to Edinburgh on July 2nd. Quick visit, I know. We have 2 days/2 nights in Dublin and then heading down to Cork for 2 days/1 night. After that we are heading up to Galway for 2 days/2 nights. We are planning on using public transportation for all of this.
I would like to stop in Kilkenny or Cashel on the way to Cork. We would most likely have about 6-7 hours in either location. We really like history and culture. Which of these locations would you say is more "must-see"? Kilkenny seems great as a smaller town, and I love the idea of a medieval town. With our other stops on our itinerary, it may be nice to get the feel of a smaller Irish town. The castle looks very interesting as well. The Rock of Cashel, on the other hand, looks incredible and it see... more »
Hi All, I know this is not the right place to ask this question but couldn’t resist myself by doing so. I know there will be someone who can answer my query.
I am from India and moved to UK this year on Short term work permit. Now after living here for more than 3 months I realized the beauty of Europe and want to stay in this country for few more years and explore.
I am a Software professional with a 6 years of Experience mainly in banking domain. My queries are below:
Can I get a work permit visa for any European country with above mentioned experience?
Which Country will be best for me?
Any Placement consultancies which can help me?
Easiest country to give work permit visa?
Thanks in Advance!!
If there is insufficient credt on a pay as you go card for a single bus does it go negative or fail to register?
I have looked on the TfL site but can't find an answer.
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?
Looking for advice on how to split about 9 days in Ireland in mid to late June. I'm thinking of spending a few days in Dublin and then looking for one or two areas elsewhere in Ireland to explore. That lush green countryside, oceanside cliffs, small towns is what I'm looking for outside of Dublin. Any recommendations on a favorite area that fits the bill? And how many days would one spend in Dublin to get a quick feel for the highlights of the city?
When I enter Southall on TfL's online bus map it defaults to London and says did I mean Southall, Greater London???? It then gives me buses in Southall. Helpful.
Could anyone tell me the difference between a guest house and a B&B, is it cost or size? Plus any suggestion on accommodation in Belfast and Edinburgh late September. Thank you to the people who replied to my last enquiry about travel in France
