For a teen visiting London what are some cool, organized activities?

My niece, a 15-year-old who'll be on her first trip outside the US, is visiting us in London in mid June. My wife and I will have lots of time to spend with her doing tourist things as well as just hanging out, and her grandparents will also be here for part of the time, but she'll be on her own for portions of a few days. Although a bit shy, she's expressed interest in doing something cool and interesting with that time that would allow her to be around other teenagers. [more inside]

Best time of year to hike the Lake District?

My husband and I are thinking of taking an anniversary/delayed honeymoon trip to the UK, and going on one of the semi-packaged Lake District hikes (where you hike from inn to inn and they trundle your baggage to the next inn for you). I'm getting conflicting information about the best month to do this. Data points inside. [more inside]

Swinging 60s London and... swinging Viking York?

I'm heading to London (and for a two day trip outside) a week from today and need a few more ideas. I have two days unbooked in which I'd like to get out of London (Monday and Tuesday Dec 1 & 2). I'm thinking maybe one or more of :
  • Glasgow
  • York
  • Durham
  • Bath
  • Cambridge
Should I just go see the Solar System in York? Also, are there any must see places or events in London that are can't misses given my interests? [more inside]

Liverpool UK over Christmas

I'm going to be in Liverpool over the Christmas holidays as I'm planning on going to Goodison Park on Boxing Day. Obviously, almost everything will be closed on Christmas Day but will there be anything open that isn't a hospital? I'd like to drink a lot so booze options most welcome, but really anything that isn't sitting by myself is great.

Trip to Wales - am I on the right track?

My wife and I are going to Scotland to see friends and family, and since I always wanted to summit Snowdon I thought I would look into a side trip to Wales. Does this itinerary makes sense? Is there not enough or too much time? Do I need to book train tickets in advance? Finally, is the bus trip a big hassle with luggage? Any advice about Snowdon? [more inside]

What fun things can I do with my family in the UK in winter?

So, my brother and his wife are flying over from Australia, and my brother-in-law from India, in December. We're all Indian, and we generally get together (us and my parents) once a year or so for around a month. Usually the trips are in India and feature a few exciting things to look forward to: last time we stayed in a few resorts along beaches in South India, and stayed in a house in the country, a houseboat tour through backwater canals, that kind of thing. I'm wondering: what kind of similar-ish things can we book and where? [more inside]

Cheeriommmm

I'm going to London for about a week. I've never been before, and I'd like to have a really relaxing time - almost like a spa retreat - for not a million dollars. What are inexpensive activities to do, or cute little places to eat that would make me feel like "London is such a relaxing, peaceful place"? I don't want to tear around London trying to cram in as many sights as possible, I want a relaxed and curated look at the place, with some weird neat shops and surprising delights along the way.
