      Hi! I'm preparing a 4 days break to Peppa Pig World with my children (next may). I would like to know if there is any advantage buying tickets in advance via web. Also If tickets allow the entrance to Paulton's Park and if is it good for 3 years old children, and any other advice you can give me. We'll be using a rental car. Is there any other good attraction near there?

We are leaving Heathrow at 1120hrs and arriving O'Hare 1345hrs thro American but operated by BA. We have 1hr and 30mins between flights - is this enough time? Both flights arrive and depart from T5. If time is tight can we ask a member of staff for assistance in order to connect with flights ? Does anyone know the procedure for a missed flight connection? We booked the flights thro American Airlines. I assume we just both clear security and not immigration.We are both UK citizens.

      Rail and rental car question

      London 17 hours ago

      I want to travel from London to Truro by train and rent a car from Enterprise on March 17th. I want to be picked up at the train station and dropped off at the airport. The Enterprise man's email does not give me a confirmation number - he seems to want me to buy a ticket on the train first. The National Rail Enquiries - Journey Planner will only give me train times up to 2015 March 12th. But www.thetrainline.com/‎

      is perfectly willing to sell me a ticket for the 17th. How can I get a car reservation confirmation without a train time (is there a website I can go to?), and should I go ahead and buy a ticket through 'thetrainline' people or wait a week and get one from National Rail?

    • Travelling to London August 2015. Cost of living ??

      London Dec 11, 2014 at 2:14 PM

      Hello everyone, how are you?

      I'm travelling to London for a 7 days holiday, next summer (August) with a friend. And as I lived there from 1996 to 2007, I know how expensive London can be for a tourist, compared to any other city in Europe (unless, of course, you from Norway or Japan). So this time I'll go as a tourist, as there are things I never did or visited when I lived there.

      Since it's been 7 years I left London (by the way I miss London so much), I don't actually know what is the cost of living in London for a budget tourist at this moment in time. I've already booked the flight, accommodation and London Pass, for London attractions + Travelcard which costed me a total of €700 (about £560) all inclusive.

      Having done that (flight, accommodation, pass and travel card), what remains is food, drink and entertainment. So I was thinking on a (low) budget of £60/£80 (€76/€100) per day (that's £420(€530) for 7 days). What do you think? Can we live on or spend our holiday with this budget for a week? We obviously won't be spending £60/£80 a day, everyday. Surely we'll go clubbing a couple of times, some evenings we'll go to a pub or a bar with music and stuff like that, and then we'll get some souvenirs for friends and family back home!

      Also we'd like to go to see Stonehenge (if we can squeeze some time in), on a day trip. What is the fastest way to get there and how much do you does it costs?

      Thank you in advance friends!

      Take care !!!

      Hi,

      my parents are here from India and would like to spend a few days visiting the Lake District. Could you please recommend some rough plan of where which parts to visit and some hotel/b&b recommendations (if you happen to know of any).

      Bear in mind they will be traveling from London by train to get there and will have to use whatever forms of public transport, trains, buses/coaches to move around once there. They are quite elderly...so don't suggest the areas which are more for hiking etc. Just some nice scenic areas and if there are also some historic "stuff" to see would be great.

      Thanks for your responses in advance :)

      Lake District National Park Apr 24, 2012 at 8:17 AM

      Hi,

      I'm doing a short tour in Scotland and was wondering if it makes any sense to take a train from Edinburgh to Lake District for an overnight stay. Is just a one day stay in Lake District worth it?

      I'm actually unaware of what one (as a tourist) really sees or does when visiting "Lake District". Any advice would be welcome. I'm actually asking for my parents. I'm not even sure if it's a straight train that'll go from Edinburgh to Lake District (Windemere right?)...and if they arrive in the afternoon...spend that evening and the next morning there and leave in the afternoon the following day. Does this sort of "stop over" tour make sense?

      Look forward to your helpful responses :)

      Hi, I am thinking of taking my other half to the Lakes for his birthday as he's never been. There would be 4 adults and 2 children in total and we would need 3 bedrooms. I would consider a chalet, cottage, lodge but not a caravan - my 13 year old son who is Autistic doesn't sleep well and in a Cabin Bed he has no chance as he's nearly 6'!

      I don't fancy being too out of the way and would like it to be somewhere my son and his friend can be entertained, sports, pool etc - night time enetertainment isn't a must but would possibly be used if available.

      I would love somewhere with a private hot tub if possible - just something extra for his birthday.

      Oh and I'd rather not pay the earth as he's at risk of losing his job!

      I know it's a large act - I am a travel agent so have tried the usual hoseasons, cottages for you etc!

      Thought I may get more options from those in the know!

      Hi

      Im taking part in the Geohustle 'Big G' mountian challenge in Keswick early October, i was hoping that someone may be able to recommend a walker friendly, and more importantly cheap b and b or bunkhouse.

      I dont fancy camping this time but dont have big bucks to spend on a fancy B & B, maybe a bunkhouse would be a good idea but i dont know of any in the centre of Keswick so thats a no no.

      Look forward to your suggestions.

      Cheers

      Steve
