Renting a car seat/booster seat in the UK

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.

What features would a rain-proof(ish) second-hand bike have?

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]

Help me see the gorgeousness of the UK for a week using public transit?

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]

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.

South UK / London area with kids in June -- farmstay?

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!
