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! :-)
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!
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'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 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 am wanting to visit the Bruce Chapel a week today- 18 Nov.'13. Making a pilgrimage from Northumberland on way north past Fort William. I first visited the chapel over 20 years ago. Will the chapel/kirk be open or will I & my son have to obtain the key from somewhere else?

We're planning a schooltrip to the UK, Portsmouth is the first city we're visiting, because we have our host families there for our students (age 14-15). We're trying to plan a full day in Portsmouth (a monday in March) and we're wondering what we could do and see on a budget, preferably free at charge. All suggestions are welcome!
Thanks in advance
I am looking for a nice restaurant in the central of London where I could take my parter for his 30th birthday. I would prefer a child friendly as we will be taking our 8 year old daughter. I would also like some where that would provide a little birthday cake for him so our daughter could sing happy birthday.
Does anyone know of any open air ice rinks near to Mirfield / Huddersfield (doesn't matter how small)? My daughter lives there (I live in Swindon) and I want to be able to take her skating over the Christmas break but don't want to travel too far. I have only found ones near York - thats too far and Leeds aren't having one till end of January.
We'll be in Greenock on Sunday, August 8 (as a kicking off point to Glasgow). However we have friends who are from the Isle of Bute and their family has graciously offered to entertain us for the day. We understand we need to take a ferry. I have a ferry schedule from Wemyss Bay. Is that in Greenock or nearby? Can we walk there from the cruise ship or will we need transportation? If we need transportation what are our options? Appreciate any and all info. Thanks!
My family will be traveling to Greenock on September14 as part of a transatlantic cruise. We would love to see some of the country side, but do not want to go on ship tours.
Is it possible to do some of the walks up into the hills in a few hours. Is it easy to get around, can you hire a cab or taxi?
Any information of things to do that will give us some feel for the country side and be able to do on our own will be appreciated.
i was thinking of visiting relatives in greenock around june of next year and i was wondering if there were any cheap accomodations. i would appreciate if anyone who lives there or has been there could help me out.
We will be visiting Greenock in September. We have a mobility scooter. Would like to get off the ship and walk around Greenock for a couple of hours. What route would you suggest we take and what sights should we look for? Hopefully, there aren't alot of cobblestones as they make for an extremely bumpy ride! :) We have this map of Greenock:
Is the Ocean Terminal where the cruise ships dock?
Could we walk to the McLean museum?
Any other places you would recommend for an easy walk?
Or should we take a tour to Glasgow, the Lochs,or Stirling Castle?
Sorry for all the questions, but previous passengers say there isn't alot to do here. We usually love to walk around the ports and see local attractions.
Thank you for your time and help.
Thanks so much for your help.
