      self-guided walk routes with offine map

      London Sep 11, 2015 at 8:25 AM

      A few years back I was in London and had downloaded to my mobile an application which had several self-guided walk routes. The maps and info were downloaded on my mobile and the app used GPS to show where I was located, Points of interest with information on them and where I should be heading.

      My friend is going to London on Sunday and I advised her to download the offline maps and routes in beforehand but now I can't find them anywhere!! Does anyone know which app I'm talking about, it should be an android app..? Anyone?

      Thanks in advance!

      Around Chepstow and Tintern Abbey

      Gwent Jan 17, 2013 at 7:36 PM

      Ma and I will be in this area for 2 nights in April. We plan to view Chepstow Castle and Tintern Abbey, before heading back to London. We are using trains/buses. The goal is to photograph the scenery in this area, old castles, baths, medieval architecture, etc etc (the stuff of romance!). If I had only 1 more spot to visit in this area, what should we see? Has to be in the Chepstow-Tintern area. I was thinking maybe Raglan Castle? But don't know how to get there by public transit. Anything else? We only have the 2 nights, 1 complete day.

      My husband and I want to visit Tintern Abbey during our trip to England. We will be travelling by train and bus. We'd like to travel from Stratford to Chepstow and then on to Tintern Abbey. We'd like to stay overnight and see some of the area attractions while we're in Wales. Can anyone recommend a two-day itinerary. I am not very familiar with Wales, so I'm not sure where we should stay what we should see, etc. Any advice will be appreciated.

      Is The Incredible Deconstructing Clock Demolished?!

      Newport Aug 6, 2006 at 2:10 PM

      I'm planning a 2 weeks vacation in UK.

      I read with great interest from M0B1US's Newport Travel Guide about the "In the Nick of Time" kinetic clock at John Frost Square and I started looking online for more info about this clock. (

      Along with some interesting write up about the clock, I chanced upon a pdf "Planning Application Schedule" dated 17 May 2006 mentioning the removal of this clock as part of the redevelopment of John Frost Square. ( I couldnt quite believe what I read.

      It didnt help when I chanced yet upon Page 5 of "Newport Matters - the official newspaper of Newport City Council" (

      "The iconic new bridge structure is in place, highways
      improvements are underway and one of the city centre’s
      worst eyesores has reduced to rubble."

      So is it true that The Incredible Deconstrucing Clock is removed? I was planning to see this clock after M0B1US's interesting writeup. And from there, I was intending to walk uphill to the St Woolos Cathedral. If there are so much construction going on, I'll give Newport a pass.

      How long a walk from the bus to the train station?

      Newport Apr 3, 2006 at 2:24 AM

      Judging from what I've found on google it takes about 15 minutes to walk from the bus station - National Express stop - to the train station. However, I wasn't able to find a good map, so I pieced this together from the "how to get there" infos of some hotels. Does anybody know if it is about 15 minutes? Or much longer?
      I'm still trying to find the best way to get to Abergavenny and Brecon and an open jaw ticket by National Express seems to be really good.
      Thanks for any help.

      Chepstow Races

      I wonder if anyone can recommend a hotel near to the racecourse. I don't want anything too expensive but would like a nice restaurant, as it's for a special birthday.

      I would be looking to stay overnight, have a nice meal and go to the races the following day.

      Many thanks
