First Time Travelling to London - and alone

Hi! I haven't been in these forums since... 2009.... so I guess this is my first post since my 7 year hiatus.

I'm planning to go to London for two months, and I already have my itinerary laid out thanks to Lonely Planet's guidebook to London. However I do have some questions about several things:

  1. Where's the best place in London to jog? I know London has LOTS of great parks, but which one is the best for jogging?
  2. What do the showers in the bathrooms of London's parks look like? Are they in…

Traveling around England

Hello Everyone,

I will be spending about 8 days in England in September - in between a week in Scotland and a week in Ireland. I originally thought we could travel around England without a car. However, most of the places I want to see are small towns and villages such as Bocking, Chiddingstone, Combe St. Nicholas, Thornbury, maybe Wincanton with the historic sites of Bath in between. In reviewing train and bus schedules and routes. I am thinking we might be better off to rent a small car…

Internship London

Hi
I will want to go to London to make an internship during 4months but I have seen that is too difficult to find one by myself so I know that companies can do that like rgroomfinder and they speak french. But I don't know really if its very difficult to find one and if I will come during few days I will can do that without them.
If you have or know more about it can you answer me.
See you ++

Casual work agencies in London

How easy is it to pick up casual work in London these days? (Given a legit working holiday visa of course). Are there still any good agencies for finding casual work in London? I know there used to be quite few but not sure what the current situation is.

Devon

Hi Everyone
I'm planning a trip to England and am probably going to be asking quite a few questions. To start with... does anyone have accommodation suggestions for quaint hotel/inns in Devon for round about 55 pounds a night (no meals included). I'm open to suggestions about which part of Devon too. Looking to enjoy quaint country lanes and pubs etc.
Many thanks

Suggestions for a day trip?

My son and his girlfriend are going to join me in London in July, just for a week. They can't get more time off work, and while I know they'll have plenty of fun in London, I'm considering taking them somewhere into the countryside just for a day trip. I'd like to pack in something of everything:
Cathedral or pretty church
Lovely village
Some impressive physical site (like Stonehenge or the White Cliffs)
Good gastropub
Maybe a NT house
Pretty countryside

I'll rent a car for a day to go from…

Three days near London

I'm going to have 3-4 days in July before family joins me in London. I'm looking for a place within 50-60 miles of Heathrow where I could park myself and relax. I'd love a pretty village or town with lodging and a good eating place or two. Or a city with a cathedral and some good city walks. Oxford, Cambridge, and Bath are out (I'll be there after London). Suggestions?
