I am currently considering a position in Colemore Row Birmingham, and they have offered meaaccommodation in the area, would this be considered a safe area for a woman living alone. I have never visited Birmingham so just trying to gather as much information as I can. Your feedback would be much appreciated. Thanks.
Hey guys !
I'm going to spend Christmas in London for the first time in three weeks and I'm very excited. However I was wondering if anyone had ideas about how and where I could spend those few days ? I would like to visit or to do non-mainstream things aside from all the "tourist" things everyone does, I'm sure there are a lot of interesting stuffs to do in London that are not well-known. Thanks :D
I've tried to look but several sites are down.
Can you go direct from Kent Station (UK) to Amsterdam direct?
Or do you have to go to Brussels first then Amsterdam?
I know otherwise I can go from London to Brussels station onto Amsterdam
I'm considering relocating to this city, buying a house.
What's the place like?
What work if any is available?
My budget is 95k, That properties are available is the main reason for considering this area.
What areas should be avoided?
I have been to a retail outlet (including a large antique/furniture section) with small boutiques all encompassed within an old country house (I think) There is also a substantial plants for sale section outside. This place is situated in view from a main road, but for the life of me, I can't remember what it is called or where it is. My sister can't remember either - even though we have both been there twice! But she thought it might be towards Haywards Heath? That could be a red herring though! Anyone know where I am talking about? It is driving me slightly mad!
Hi. I'm planning to take a vacation to the UK next year, and I was just wondering how to get around the city. Do we have to use the bus, take a cab, or go underground? Thanks!
While visiting Southampton recently, someone told us of a wall that American servicemen wrote on before boarding their ship on their way to D-Day. Having visited Normandy on the other side of the channel, we tried finding this wall. We could not find it. Does it exist and is there a picture of it anywhere?
I know this my be a ridiculous request, however I am asking anyway. About 25 years ago when I was in London I visited a pub. This pub was no more than an hour or so out of London, While I was there, I remember someone telling me that the Vikings had landed in that very location and that it was over 1,000 years. I also remember that the seats (booths , for lack of a better word) we stone slabs. If you can help, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. My son is traveling soon and I would love for him to experience it.
I'm thinking of moving to Newark, is this a good, where else could I consider?
Is it possible to see the market place and cross from the castle walls? How far away is the market place from the castle.
I have just accepted a job offer in Bodmin and due to the nature of the work do not want to live there. We have looked at many places throughout Cornwall and have agreed on Newquay. Problem is we do not know the area in depth, is there areas we should avoid buying a house? I don't want to come across as snooty but want to avoid the council housing estates and bring up the kids in a nice area.
Anyone know of a Sushi restaurant in MK?
I'm preparing to send my daughter to London for a semester. Any tips to make her transition easier? Perhaps a 'dont leave home without' suggestion? This is her first trip to Europe. Thank you!!
Only going to be there for a day- staying in Pancras. Really want a day in the life of a local!!! Been 3 times prior and seen big sights already.
I'm a US citizen flying from San Francisco to Mumbai via London Heathrow. My layover is from 12 noon till 9 PM (9 hours). I booked my flight through Virgin Atlantic directly but my connecting flight from LHR to Mumbai is on a codeshare airline (Jet Airways). I've found out that I'll be able to check my bags all the way through from SFO to Mumbai.
I was also told that I can do an airside transfer from Terminal 3 to 4 at LHR using a terminal shuttle. My question is, can I leave the airport and visit London for a few hours while I'm there? I've read forums that mention (strangely enough) that Virgin Atlantic doesn't allow you to leave the airport during a layover. From what I know I don't need a tourist or transit visa to enter the UK.
If possible I would like to go to Windsor Castle and maybe have a meal around there before coming back to Terminal 4 directly. I won't be having a big carry-on bag either. Just a laptop bag. Has anyone been through this recently?
I want to visit London again.
In this time I would like to see unusual things or places, which may be worth seeing too!
Do you have any idea??
I'll be very grateful for your help:)
I'm traveling from the U.S. to Harrogate next June for a graduation at Fountains Abbey. I'll be flying into London Heathrow and taking a train to Harrogate. What are my transportation options from Harrogate to Fountains Abbey (the graduation is on a weekday evening), or would staying in Leeds give me more choices for transportation? I appreciate any advice I can get. Thanks in advance!
I plan a three-day trip to the UK. Which city or cities do you recommend to visit and why? Thanks for your help.
I'm proposing to my girlfriend in Central London in February. I want to plan a scavenger hunt proposal where she has to follow clues to find me and the ring at the end. I have a list of great places in central to add to the list, but I'm conscious about the almost certain bad weather in February. Can anyone recommend places that are indoor that I could add to my scavenger hunt in Central London? This way I could make it half indoor and half outdoor. Thanks.
Does anyone know which city, London or Suderland , is more worthwhile for a one-month trip?
Does anyone know the name of the shop that has taken over the traditional sweet shop. I was in there last week and would like to check to see whether something is still in stock but I do not the name to call them!
The shop always has things stacked outside and a ramp to go up into the shop. It has a vast array of items from clothing (in back right hand corner), crockery, furniture, handmade crafts and so forth. The counter is in the back left. Last time I was in there they had some lovely handmade children shoes!
Please help! :-)

I would like to know, where is the best place in London to go shopping?
Thanks for any advice
With the pound being more expensive than the dollar, I am really concerned about the price of a week in England.... I need tips that cater to the traveler on a low budget. As if I were a teen in the 1960's or 70's going around with a packpack...I don't mind staying with friends or a youth hostel, but over 100$ a night for one or two people seems like a lot!
im from belfast and i will be coming over to lancaster after the new year. i am looking for a night club with good LOUD music (E.G David guetta/Tsunami/charts) and if possible with a good cheap night.
in belfast we have a lot of selection but im looking somewhere new.
any good ideas??
I will be arriving in London Heathrow, American Airlines terminal 3 and connecting to Dubai in British Airways terminal 5. I have 3 hours layover. A friend in London wants to go to the airport to see me. Where should I tell her to meet me? Will I have time to meet her?
Hi, about 10 years ago I was in hospital in exeter. An old lady was going in to town. I needed to buy a new mobile phone and asked to go along.
When I got there I saw an amazing place, it had some old roman/Athens looking remains which were very big, and a totally different looking building, it is only the frame left, made of a sort of brown stone with small bubbly holes like a wispa chocolate bar, it was very weathered.
I would like to visit it again, but don't know exactly where it was too.
About 40 minutes bus drive from a hospital in exeter Devon.
Please help me find this place again, I have drawn a picture here;
Thank you for any help.
We are a group of some 10 men, visiting a friend in London. We are an easygoing, relaxed bunch. Primarily interested in good cocktails and good music. Can you recommend a bar which has more or less the following features?
- Bar welcomes larger groups without letting them wait on a queue outside for years and years
- They know how to make decent martini cocktails
- They stay open late
The bar does not need to be very fancy...
Thank you very much for your help!
