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 looking for suggestions on good and interesting walks/hikes in the north of England, besides the Lake District. I have done a lot of walks/hiking around the Three Peaks in Yorkshire, and also in some parts of the Yorkshire Dales around Settle and Malham.

All suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

I am currently 20 years old from the United States. I am going to be studying abroad in Ireland next spring, however, I am not sure where I want to go. I am having trouble deciding between Galway and Cork (I also have the option of Dublin and Limerick). I was wondering which would be the better option? I just want to experience the culture as well as what amazing sights the country has to offer!

Our trip is late November with our family of 5 (kids all older teens), I have finalized 1 night in Dublin, then, 3 nights in Galway to visit Connemara, enjoy the Christmas Market, and perhaps a visit to Cong.
Our last night we need to stay near Cork airport, so I was thinking of staying in Kinsale for the afternoon/evening...
When we leave Galway, we were planning on seeing the Cliffs of Moher and some of the Burren. It will be my 50th birthday and I would like to spend the first night somewhere…

Hi,
I’m planning on spending 6 weeks travelling Thailand, I will be training Muay Thai so will need gloves, shin pads etc, as well as being a tourist.
I also always pack loads, and love to bring back gifts.
I’m a 5’0ft female and wondering which bag is best the 70 or 80, I’ve heard people saying 80 is really big, and the bigger the bag the heavier the bag. I’m worried the 70 may be too small.
Most of my travel will be plane, taxi or tuk tuk, when using buses, sky train etc I’m planning on using a…

I am planning to travel (train, bus, walking) from Hastings to the north Kent shoreline, using the Kent Weekender rail ticket - £13 for three days of travel and on the return journey (spread over the second and third days) you can stop off as many times as you wish. Good way to explore a part of the UK I know little about (not many spa hotels or tourist magnets!).

It may seem odd but that part of Kent (Hoo Peninsular) is actually rather peaceful and beautiful - flat and marshy and more…

Prices for Greenmotion auto rental at Edinburgh airport are as low as 78 pounds. Arnold Clark, which has been highly recommended, is 172. Greenmotion has terrible reviews, except for the site traveljigsaw, where they are rated well. Does anyone have any experience with Greenmotion? I am wondering if it is worth paying the extra money (quite a bit, since I will rent for 2-3 weeks) to rent from Arnold Clark. Thanks for any info.
