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…

I am trying to come up with a trip for four days to Wales with my Parents, and I would love suggestions. We would be traveling from an to London.
A couple of our preferences:

For the most part, our favorite times traveling are bit off the beaten path. While we are happy to and frequently want to see to see a true piece of history, a good museum, etc with other tourists, We abhor tourist traps, and love see life from the local's eye.

So if I, as an American, wanted to work in the UK, what requirements do I need to meet? Does Schengen come into play or is the UK exempt? Any advice/information appreciated.

Thank you!

Hi fello-travellers
I'll be in Conwy for 2.5 days and want to explore as much of the north coast as possible by train - please can someone offer suggestions as to routes and stops along the way? I've heard that Caernafon, and the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland train trips are beautiful. i don't have any idea of time-frames between towns.
Would someone be kind enough to suggest a comprehensive 2 day itinerary for me/ I'd be most grateful.
With appreciation,
CHarmian

I'm having a terrible time trying to find an answer to this...

I'll be in London for a concert on Sept. 24. I know the area where I'm staying (Leicester Square) and venue (Roundhouse) well... no worries there.

Here's where the problem comes in! I would like to go to another concert in Guildhall, Portsmouth on Sept. 23 or Symphony Hall, Birmingham on Sept. 25. How can I get to one (or both) of these places from London, and more importantly, is there a train that will get me back to my hotel…
