      Hampshire Nov 19, 2015 at 8:20 AM

      Does there anybody here live in Alton, Hampshire, or is there anybody here is a walk-enthusiast, who had done some walks in Hampshire : Alton - Chawton - Farringdon (Upper) - Selborne; walk the South Down National Park and / or benefiting the South Down's rambler services (Refer to : Visit-Winchester or Visit-Hampshire) ?
      I am interested in those activities, yet haven't "seen" the latest reviews on them.
      Thanks anyone for sharing and posting reviews.

    • Restaurants with fairy lights.

      London Nov 22, 2015 at 9:50 AM

      Hi there, so my question isn't really a travel related question at all it's actually just about dining in London.. I'm trying to be very picky but I'm looking for a nice romantic restaurant of any cuisine that is decorated with fairy lights, now I know this sounds crazy but my parter has wanted to go to a restaurant of this description for some time and I just haven't been able to find anywhere. Somewhere that uses fairy lights to decorate the inside of the restaurant or even the trees around the building and things like that.. I really hope someone can help me! Thank you all for reading!

No checked baggage and I'll have my boarding pass for BA flight with me (on phone and paper backup). Can I use the "Flight Connections" path and bus to transfer to Terminal 5? Or must I follow the "Arrivals" path and then have to get over to Terminal 5 on my own via Tube or Heathrow Express?

      Hi, I'm looking to book somewhere for a Saturday night for 6 people to celebrate my husbands 50thbirthday. Really good food and atmosphere is important. I wondered if any locals could help? There is a place that looks like they do good steaks with a rooftop bar, but it's attached to a hotel, not normally a recipe for plenty of life! Have looked at Cotto's website but lack of wine prices scares me. I've seen somewhere called Cau, doesn't look overly special but maybe someone could tell me different? Would appreciate ideas, thankyou

      Which bus to take?

      Cambridge Jul 17, 2011 at 3:25 AM

      I've been to Cambridge so often that I thought I'd know my way around. But usually I walked or took a bus from the railway station to the centre, quite easy.
      This time we're travelling with a baby and the weather forecast predicts a mixture of light rain and heavy rain. I've tried finding the right bus for us on the Cambridgeshire Transport website, but no luck. I suppose I'm too stupid to find it, so I thought I'd come here and ask you.

      We have to get from the train station to our B&B in Milton Road. Is it Citibus 4? Or any other bus? I haven't been able to find a page showing all the stops.

      We cannot take a taxi because they don't have baby seats, so it's either walking or buses.

      Thank you for your help.

      I have a midweek three-hour stop over in Huntingdon (train) and need to look good for an evening meeting in Peterborough. I don't need a cut, just a shampoo and style to make me feel less like I'm living out of a suitcase. I see there are several shops in the high street - what can you recommend in the middle-price range? As for brief tourism, I'm thinking about a walk to Godmanchester if its not raining. If it is rainy, where is a good cafe in Huntingdon?

      Cambridge - Sightseeing, food & Travelling...

      Cambridge Oct 6, 2008 at 12:46 AM

      I will be visiting Cambridge just for one day.
      I was planning to take a sightseeing hop on / hop off tour bus so I can see more of this city and punt along river cam. Do you think this is a good plan for one day in Cambridge or perhaps someone suggests other things?

      Would love to have dinner in a local restaurant - think I'd go for The Eagle, any other suggestions?

      The next day I will be travelling to London, so far I know I have to leave Cambridge by train and stop at Kings Cross in London ... can someone please forward a link to the railway station website. I will be staying at the Ashley Hotel, 74 Chesterton Road, Cambridge, CB4 1ER where I believe is best to take a taxi from the hotel to the railway station.

      Any suggestions for a lovely day in Cambridge are most welcome.

      Decent pubs, any other tips?

      Hello, I'm coming to Peterborough for a gig this weekend. Where can I go for a drink afterwards? It will be lateish, and ideally I'd love somewhere 'Rock'. However, if that's not possible I'd be happy with a nice, cosy friendly pub that isn't going to be blasting out chart music and serving alchopops to teenagers! Somewhere in the town centre would be good. Any tips?

      While we are in Peterborough, is there anything else we should see / do?
