Hi, I would be travelling to Reading somewhere around 15th October with my family.
Please suggest me a rented flat/home closer to any supermarket/ groceries stores and should have direct conveyance to my work location i.e. Kennet Wharf ,Queen's Road .
Here are two photos of the sculptures to which my question of August 23, 2013 referred. Does anyone know anything about them?
On a recent trip via Reading, we walked to the Abbey ruins and saw beautiful and haunting sculptures nearby of faces within orbs. What are they? What artist? Meaning? A memorial? Connected to ruins in any way?
Looking to hold a stag party in Windsor was wondering what's the best bar's clubs around or recommend a company who organize these
Is it possible to get tickets from a Ticket on Departure machine at the Reading Station with a chip and signature card (not a chip and pin card)?
My boyfriend has a business meeting in Ascot next month and I was planning to tag along. The plan is to travel down from our home in Yorkshire on Sunday and return on Tuesday afternoon (his meeting is on Monday), Where would be the best place to base ourselves? Is Ascot nice or would we be better suited to somewhere like Windsor. I need you advice as I am unfamiliar with the area. We will be travelling by car, we like to experience a little luxury when we go away, but we are by no means 'loaded'.
Looking forward to your guidance
I am looking for somewhere in Windsor with a good selection of cocktails and possibly a bit of a dance but I don't want to go to a club, I am thinking all bar one for cocktails but can anyone recommend anywhere else?
I checked the prices for the bus to Legoland from Windsor and frankly speaking it seems to me that since there are 4 of us it may be cheeper for us to take a taxi from the Railway station. Does anyone know by chance how much it may be?
I want to buy a combined ticket to Legoland, but I cannot find an option where I can do it online.
Can I buy train tickets online and then purchase combined ticket (entrance+shuttle bus) when I arrive in London? What is ment buy 'staffed train station'? Is Paddington one of them?
Hi, we are a group of 4 people over 50 and are staying for 4 nights at Newbold College, had some past connections there and it is cheap!! LOL!! So, I was wondering how long it takes to get to London on public transport, bus or train or whether we are better off hiring a car for a time there? Thanks! D
hi need to know how far by walking distance from christopher wren hotel and spa to chicagos night club please is it far can anyone help me on this thanks
Good day for all
Question for ‘em parents whom already had their pockets emptied in Legoland…
My son is a big Lego fan, much like the child that hides within his dad… we plane to end our London vacation visiting Legoland, actually departing to Heathrow just at the end of the visit. I know there is a mega Lego store in the park: does anyone remembers how were the prices there compared to Toys R Us or Hamelis for instance? I don’t mind paying 10% more for the adventure of buying Lego at Legoland, but would prefer to do my shopping in Toys R Us the day before, if the difference is bigger.
Thank you for your help.
To visit Windsor Castle, which is the better train station?
My sister and I will have a stop oven in Heathrow on our way from Kenya to U.S. Our plane is landing at 3:pm on Sat Dec 12th. We fly out the nest morning. Weplan to leave our luggage at the airport. Is it doable for us to go to windsor? I realize that we probably won't be able to go inside the castle but could we see from outside? Will most things be closed by the time we get there? What would be the best way to get to Windsor? (train, bus or taxi) Does anyone have any suggestions how we could spend the evening? (We're planning to sleep at Yothel in Heathrow as our flight leaves early in the morning and we don't want to deal with hassle of getting to Heathrow in the morning.
I have never been to Reading and have an entire day to myself on Tuesday - Sept 29th. Any suggestions on things to do / see?
Hi, anyone had got online ticket to Windsor Castle. I plan to do day trip to Windsor from London on 1st Oct. Should we purchase it online or it's still okay to buy from there itself? Reliable? Any suggestion is appreciated.
Thinking of going to Royal Ascot this year (on the Saturday).
Any ideas for somewhere to stay? We'd be driving, and coming from Heathrow, so somewhere west/south west of the airport but not in Ascot itself...
Don't like "country house" type places. Happy with budget chains.
One other question - if my 14 year old comes along does he have to stick to the general admission rules too (collar & tie - no jeans etc)? He'd look a bit of a pratt in his school uniform! Thats all he has apart from leisure clothes. Maybe I could rent a kilt for him!
As my fiance and I will be traveling to London and we are still finalizing the plans, we are thinking of going to Windsor and Eton, through the Green Line coaches.
I am just wondering, do I have to purchase the coach ticket beforehand? Perhaps online? Or can I just find a counter or kiosk and buy my tickets there?
And realistically, if we see everything quick... a same-day return is still doable, right?
has anyone eaten here recently? We have been many times in the past but not for several years. I wanted to take my husband there for his 50th birthday in april but the only review I could find on the net was from last november and it was dire! I don't wnat to book a special night out if it has gone downhill, but the setting is lovely ,we will be mooring outside for the night if we go, and we have fond memories of the place. Any restuarant can have a bad night but I would apppreciate some recent review of the place.Many thanks Linda

The monk was placed in the Abbey Ruins back in 1988 on the London road side of the ruins. In the picture on your website, the Monk is in a different place.
Can you please tell me when the Monk was moved, and why?
(I have pictures of when it was placed there and know the wife of one of the original workers who placed him there).
