A few years ago (2014) we took a trip to London and fell in love with the pithy poems of the Travel Better London campaign. I'd love to have one or more to hang in our guest room, but am not able to find any for sale. Ideas?
I live near a small airport which has recently started offering very inexpensive flights to Edinburgh and I feel like I should take advantage of this. Help me figure out what to do there. [more inside]
About ten years ago you all helped someone transfer from Gatwick to Heathrow within a 4-hour window. I'm going the other direction and my transfer time has one hour less. Please hope me! [more inside]
We’re on a plane to London right now, arriving around 8 AM tomorrow morning. Where, near Covent Garden or Trafalgar Square, can we sit down and have a low-key breakfast around 9:30 or 10, that’s tasty and leisurely? No particular food preference, and no dietary restrictions. I know there are a million places around there, but the “leisurely” is hard to narrow down. ££ or £££ out of ££££.
I'm going to Leeds for the first time next week (American, first time in the UK). What should I know/see/do? [more inside]
does anyone know how I get to the QE11 centre on time for a 9am start? Living near Battle East Sussex and all the train times are currently showing Victoria as my only direct option. I know there have been problems with Waterloo engineering running over...but HALP?
I've asked before about a short London jaunt, and then reported failure. But this time it's happening for sure. I fly into London Heathrow, arriving at 8 AM, and take a train out of Euston Station to Manchester at 4 PM. Help me join the dots in the most scenic way possible? [more inside]
We'd appreciate some advice for hiking and staying in Scotland next month. [more inside]
The wife and I are heading to Edinburgh for the first time and whisky is going to be a large part of the trip. Two questions: - Where is the best place to drink a whisky flight that will give us a feel for the different types of scotch? - Is it worth trying a whisky older than we are (33)? Any specific recommendations? Details below. [more inside]
Hi Mefites, I’m going to Scotland with my SO fo a 10 days trip in September. We’re mainly interested in gorgeous landscapes and lonely places, wild animals, haunted castles and are open to hiking, cycling & kayaking. We would like to keep the driving up to 3 hours per day maximum. [more inside]
We're renting a car in England soon and need a booster seat for the rental car. Google is surprisingly not turning up tons of options, and what I'm really looking for anyway are personal experiences with companies. We could pick up the seat at Heathrow if necessary -- and we won't be staying in central London, but in Kent. We really only need it for rides to/from the airport and for one longish drive on one of the days of our trip.
My commute is such that I need to get a bike I can leave at the train station overnight, so I can cycle the last bit of my journey. I'm going to get a second-hand one (budget about £100), but what should I be looking for? (I don't know much about bikes.) [more inside]
I'm in the UK for a week in August, and want to spend my time there absorbing as much nature as I possibly can—I want to see the outdoors more than anything. I arrive in London and have a gig in Salisbury, but am able to travel if there's a better base from which to set up camp. I do NOT have a car, so public transit will be utilized. Where should I go, what should I see, and how do I do it? [more inside]
Accommodation suggestions in England needed, old-timey a must, haunted a plus! [more inside]
I will be spending almost a week in Bath and London with a 4 (almost 5) year old. We need recommendations for great things to do in both locations. [more inside]
Bit of an odd question perhaps - but am I missing something obvious? I'm looking for affordable but SAFE accommodation with my six year old in London next weekend. [more inside]
I'm temporarily relocating to London from the States for 3-6 months for work. Since I'll be there for an extended period of time, what are the not-just-the-highlights things that I should do and see while I'm there? Bonus points for seasonal events, weekend trips, and good events listing sources. [more inside]
Visiting London -- where should I eat? Particularly, though not exclusively, interested in places good for parties of 1 or 2, and in regional Indian and traditional British food. [more inside]
A friend and I are going to be in Scotland May 7-15. We are using Glasgow as a home base, but we want to go visit an island. I'm having trouble figuring out 1. which island; and 2. how to get to said island. Does anyone have any Scotland tips?! [more inside]
I've got a day off tomorrow. I live in London. What should I do? [more inside]
