      Walk Hampshire - England

      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.

      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?

    • Time needed for next flight.

      Heathrow 19 hours ago

      My son booked a ticket through a travel agent.He is arriving from India to Heathrow by Air India at 11-30 and next flight from Gatwick to Amsterdam by BA at 15:50. I dont think he has enough time to go trough passport control & reach Gatwick. So I think a separate ticket from Heathrow to Amsterdam is safer. Both flights from terminal 4 but he needs to go through passport control, baggage claim then check in again. Please advise if this is a better plan & how much time needed for transfer. Sorry for the long message and thank you in advance.

      Advice of Cumbrias Local

      Cumbria Apr 20, 2015 at 11:21 AM

      Hello! I need an advice of Cumbrias Locals. I have a pen friend who lives alone in a small village Mealsgate. We had been exchaiging letters every day for more than 3 months till last Thursday whan he didn't answer my last message. He is not a person who stops correspondence without any explination and I am afraid that he may be in trouble. He relocated to Mealsgate about 2 months and don't know his neighbours. Most people come to this place only for a weekend. So if he felt bad or locked or anything else it was possible that there were nobody to hepl! I had a such type bad experience when I couldn't open my bathroom door and thought that I might stay there forever. So I worry and don't know what to do. I found local police email but I am afraid they will dicide that it is a joke. I actually hope that he is fine but his computer is broken or just doesn't want to communicate but I would like to be sure that he doesn't need help.
      Any ideas?

      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 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.

      Good accomodation in the Lake District

      Hi everyone,

      I will be visiting the lake district with my family for about three nights at the start of June (We have a 3 year old and an 8 month old)

      Can anyone recommend some excellent accomodation near any of the lakes? We visited Bowness-on-Windermere briefly last year and were enchanted.

      Budget is a consideration & self catering is fine, but our main desires are cleanliness, scenery and hopefully the likes of a rustic log fire!

    • Does a single day trip to Lake District make sense?

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


      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 :)
