Oxford and then...?

I will possibly be in London in August, and would like to take the time to not only see Oxford, but to spend a day or two in a smaller, more peaceful town or village. What are my best options? [more inside]

Rambling UK journey between London + Cornwall. Where should we visit?

We've got 6 days, a car, and an unlimited appetite for adventure and beauty. Where should we visit if we're bumming around in the area/countryside between London and Cornwall? Open to suggestions for delicious places to eat and lovely places to stay as well.

Help us enjoy the Scottish Highlands!

We have 9-10 hours to spend in Scotland around Inverness (arriving in Invergordon). We are interested in seeing some beautiful Scottish highland scenery. We are interested in suggestions for routes to take to see the most dramatic scenery, and what would be some worthwhile local sights/castles/picturesque villages to see. We have heard about the road from Durness to Ullapool, but are not sure if there is time for that. We do not have a car but might be able to hire a driver. Thank you for any help!

Where should we visit in England: York, or the Lake District?

Mr. T. Horn & I will be traveling a good swath of England this summer, and have a few days to kill before heading back to London after our visit to Haworth/Bronte Parsonage Museum. Where would be more enjoyable, affordable, and fun for 2 grad students on a budget, traveling by train and bus: the Lake District, or York? Or somewhere else? [more inside]

2 week Toronto to east coast road trip suggestions

I've booked July 9th - 24th off for a family road trip to the maritimes. We're no sure how to start planning. We've never been on a long road trip to visit multiple cities, places before and are a little lost on how to plan this. We were thinking of taking this route: Toronto - Ottawa - Montreal - Quebec City - [something?] - Fredericton - Moncton - Charlottetown - Peggy's Cove - then back (through the US perhaps?) Is this too much? Any suggestions on where to stop or a better route? Will be travelling with my wife and two daughters (9 and 11).

Recommend a good seaside town near London in July

It should be within a couple of hours of London by train, but not Brighton (we go there a lot). Probably for just one night--a Sunday. It's for my SO's birthday, so someplace romantic would be good although it's not a requirement. Recommendations for places to stay, restaurants and pubs also welcome. [more inside]

London on a six-hour layover

I've lived in New York and Boston and Sydney; I've spent time in France, Greece, Germany, and even a week in Manchester; I've been through Heathrow many times, but I've never set foot in London proper. And now I'm heading to Germany on Friday, and have another layover in Heathrow. But this time it's different: I have a six hour layover, a US passport, and a single carry-on bag, nothing checked. Help me do this. [more inside]

Family Bicycling Near London

Looking for an RPG Store in London

That's role-playing games, of the pen and paper variety, not video games or some kind of munitions or anything else. I'd be especially interested in a place that would have a good selection of indy material, especially if it was of UK- or European origin. (And I'm asking about London in the UK).
