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'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]
I've got a day off tomorrow. I live in London. What should I do? [more inside]
I'm travelling to England and Scotland for 4 weeks in late April/May. Just looking for ideas about things I could see and do outside London. Hiring a car is out unfortunately as I don't drive at home so needs to be public transport accessible. I'm interested in tourist attractions history literature culture good food and drink and maybe shopping.
Looking for your input on where to stay in London in the later summer. [more inside]
Looking for tour company/sightseeing suggestions for first-time American tourists to London, including day trips beyond the city. Is stonehenge worth it? White Cliffs of Dover? Somewhere Downton Abbey-esque? [more inside]
I have an upcoming 9am Lufthansa flight out of Heathrow. What is the easiest, most convenient, walkable(?) hotel to stay at the night before? [more inside]
Hi all -- Looking for recommendations as we put together a trip for 10-12 days, starting and departing London. Our party is 2 adults and 2 kids (3.5 years and 1.5 years). We've had great success with farmstays in the past. Train rides are also fun. Any thoughts on places to visit or farmstays? We'll want to do a few days in London but also get out -- seaside or country or both in the time we have. Ideally we'll travel by rail (trains are fun!) but we could drive. Looking for less-touristy, more funky or strange kind of stuff. Walking treks, or renting bikes, etc. Thanks!
My wife and I (early 30s) are interested in touring England the last week in May. More specifically, we'd love to experience the English countryside, including the Cotswolds, Bath, etc. Additionally, we'd like a bit of time in London. We're considering approx. 13 days, including travel (from Atlanta). [more inside]

I left my coat in Johannesburg at a conference last week. Another colleague at the conference has kindly offered to bring the coat to Heathrow, which she will be in on Monday from roughly 8am to 11am. I am flying through Heathrow myself a few hours later, should be around 2pm-5pm when I am there. It's the same day, but we don't overlap. How can my colleague get the coat to me? [more inside]

I'm in London with a 13 year old in early December. Wondering where to go for a good holiday market, especially any with a European feel, dates are Dec. 1 - 6. We do have a Sunday free, do you have a recommendation for an advent service?
