      Advice on Burslem, Please?

      Stoke-upon-Trent Apr 19, 2014 at 1:04 AM

      Hi. It looks like I'm going to have to relocate from the East Midlands to Burslem and I really need the (sensible) advice of Stoke residents about a particular neighbourhood.

      It's the Joseph Street/Billinge Street/Lyndhurst Street neighbourhood, on the north side of Newcastle Street.

      Is it a bearable area to live in? Or does it have any sort of a reputation for stuff like antisocial student behaviour or any other kind of antisocial behaviour?

      I must say it looks pretty seedy on Google Street View, but then that's Stoke for you, isn't it? It's an unpretentious, scuffed sort of post-industrial city and famous for it, but the folk who live there are supposed to be okay. Mind you, I appreciate that areas can change very swiftly indeed these days due to economic migration, so frankly I don't know what to assume about that particular neighbourhood.

      Can anyone shed any light?

      Many thanks.

      London Apr 7, 2014 at 3:40 PM

      Tossing around the idea of picking up a pair of tickets to the Monty Python show at the O2 in July, most probably on the 20th. My son (27) and I (57) would be attending together, and spending 4 or 5 days in London, arriving by air to either Heathrow or Gatwick. Looking for suggestions for accommodations - easy access from/to the airport would be nice, easy access to the O2 (tube okay) even better; room doesn't need to be 5 star, just clean and safe - hotel, hostel, b&b all okay.

      Harwich cruise logistics

      London Apr 7, 2014 at 10:13 AM

      I'm looking at the logistics for a Harwich - Copenhagen cruise. It's been some time since I've been in London, but never found the trains too difficult. Any suggestions my thoughts of staying a few days in London, then taking the train to Harwich in the AM to board the ship? Or would it be better to travel the day before and overnight in Harwich just to be on the safe side of the trip?

      At the end I'm debating on taking Easyjet (or other) from Copenhagen back to London to attempt at some round trip savings on air fare from SAN in the US as opposed to two one-way trips. Thoughts from those that travel Europe frequently?

      Trip To The Cotswolds - Where to Stay

      Gloucestershire Sep 16, 2012 at 11:58 PM

      Hi,
      Plan to be in the Cotswolds on the night of the 25th of October 2012. The objective is to see the countryside, wade in the rivers, see the architecture of the area, enjoy some good meals and generally while away some time.........
      The plan is to: -
      # Train to Oxford on the 25th Morning
      # Spend about 4 hours in Oxford. Rent a car there for a day and drive into the Cotswolds
      # Would like to see Bourton on the water, The Slaughters, Chipping Camden (And maybe even Bibury) (Wonder if thats too much for 1pm on 25th to 1pm on 26th )
      # Back to London in the shortest possible time (via oxford or otherwise)

      We are on a short holiday and we may never come back to this part of the world/UK again and hence the hunger to see as much as possible.....

      ## Is the above doable....
      ## Any views on which town we should put up in? Should i stay in one of these towns or in a place like Cheltenham (assumption here is that in October, night will fall very early and the small towns may have little or nothing to walk around/see/do post sun down)
      ## How long will it take us to drive from Cheltenham to Chipping Camden at about 9am on a weekday morning?

      Regards,
      Francis

    • Is overnight parking a problem when staying for a week in September?

      Bourton on the Water Aug 21, 2011 at 5:48 PM

      We plan on staying in Burton on the Water in September for a week, and our accommodations don't provide parking. I've read several posts by people complaining about the difficulty and expense of parking. Will we be able to find free street parking while we are staying here? If not, what will our options be for paid parking that is convenient to the center of the village? We will need to park overnight, and also while we are in the village during the day. Are there any provisions made for visitors who are staying for an extended period, rather than just for the day? Since we will be staying a week, I don't want the cost or difficulty of parking to become a big problem.

      Cheap-ish accommodation for a group in the Cotswolds

      Gloucestershire Aug 9, 2010 at 3:51 AM

      Hi,
      I am trying to arrange a New Year retreat for my social club.
      Does anyone know of accommodation in the Cotswolds (or maybe you can suggest somewhere else) that would meet my requirements?

      We are looking for accommodation for probably about 6-10 people. We would like to keep the costs down as our club is for 18-30 year olds. We are looking at about £25 pppn. We will probably require a mixture of twin/triple/multiple and double accommodation. B&B or self catering is fine. Looking for about 3 nights - Friday 31st Dec to Mon 2nd Jan 2011.

      I would really appreciate any suggestion and I am struggling to find much accommodation in the Cotswolds at all.

      Many thanks,

It will be our first visit to the Cotswolds and we would like to see and do as much as we can in this period. Which towns/villages/sites would you guys recommend that we definitely travel to? Also, what are your favorite and least favorite Cotswold towns? We would also love some recommendations on specific pubs and restaurants in the region to frequent for drinks and dinner as well as some advice on known haunted locations to visit.... Essentially, any and all Cotswold advice is welcomed and appreciated!

      ***We are staying in Bath for the first 5 nights and plan on doing some daytrips out of there. We will probably see Glastonbury, Avebury, Lacock and Castle Combe out of Bath, so any other tips that you have will be helpful...
