I'd like to begin by thanking those who helped on the forum while getting this far in planning for my wife and self. I've been working this eight day Kent drive schedule repeatedly for a full season and nearing the end with this the last bit.
A few caveats :a) I know roads aren't fast , having driven 25,000+ UK miles over a lifetime including seven extensive visits with relatively few on major highways b)equally fully aware jet lag's a problem for many, but hasn't been for me in many hops…
I've lived in London for nearly 50 years now.But there's always new places to discover. This morning I found THIS delightful site, which lists places I've never heard of - https://www.ianvisits.co.uk/london-museums/
Even better, many of them are FREE. Like, for example,
The Library and Museum of Freemasonry ...................... Free ....
An impressive library and sizeable museum housed within the main headquarters of the Freemasons in England. Contrary to their secretive reputation, the…
Do you happen to know know how long would one have to wait in line in order to board the London eye outside "rush hour" (which I understand is between 12:00-15:00)? I'm specifically talking about a Sunday evening- will it be worthwhile to buy the fast track tickets for that time?
First time trip to UK and trying to come up with an itinerary is daunting. We're looking to take a few day trips (Oxford, Cardiff, ?) and some walking tours. Want to see the attractions, just not do any theater stuff. We're in our 60s and this is most likely our only trip to the country. Any suggestions on how to make this less overwhelming would be appreciated. Love museums, films, Dr. Who :) and interesting eats. Thanks for any assistance!
I have a flight on Norwegian Airlines leaving at 10:00 AM in the South Terminal of London - Gatwick. If I book a flight from Amsterdam on EasyJet that arrives in the North Terminal at 7:20 AM that same day, will it allow for enough time to catch my 10:00 AM flight? I only have 1 carry on bag. I appreciate any advice anyone has to offer. Thanks!
Good morning all!
My husband and I are planning our first UK trip and want some suggestions on itinerary. We have booked to stay in London from Aug 5-8, and then would like to venture out Aug 9-12 before we catch a flight to Marseilles on the 12th.
We are going to rent a car from London so we want to take advantage of the freedom.
We are leaning toward spending Aug 9-10 staying in Bristol (2 nights), and see Salisbury, Bath and maybe Exmoor park area, and then spend Aug 11-12 (one night) in…
My wife and I are planning to take the train down from Edinburgh to northeast England (Newcastle??) on May 3, returning to Edinburgh on May 9. Any suggestions on an itinerary, favorite places to visit, favorite inns or hotels to stay??

I m in London and I'd love to hear about some of your favorite streets for strolling.I love to just wander streets, discover neighborhoods, window shop, sit in a outdoor cafe and watch the world go by . Anyone care to weigh in on some of your favorites? Thank you in advance!
I am asking this question on behalf of my sister who does not do computers at all.
At the beginning of February my sister went to her local travel agent to discuss a short theatre break to London. The travel agent put together a package for 5 people, herself, her husband, their daughter and their two grandchildren. The package included the return train fare from Truro to Paddington, 3 nights in a well-known London hotel and of course 5 theatre tickets.
They were due to travel 1st of March…
