    • Waterfalls where a Mobility Scooter could access?

      Isle of Arran 24 minutes ago

      Hi,
      Visiting Arran tomorrow for the first time. My husband has Parkinson's Disease so we are a bit limited in what he can do. We would love to see a waterfall. Are any accessible by mobility scooter?
      Any other suggestions for beautiful places to see during that are either accessible by scooter or no more than 250metres to walk?
      Thank you so much

      Dear VT members,
      I need to leave my car for 9 days near Edinburgh airport. I have found Ingliston Park and Ride to be very convenient and free. However, they indicate no overnight stay in website. Is there any VT member who left his car there for a long duration? I don't want to find my car towed when I arrive back. If this will certainly happen, where do you suggest to park the car?

      Short connection Terminal 5 and Terminal 2

      Heathrow May 4, 2015 at 8:36 PM

      Hi everyone,

      I have booked flights with Singapore Airlines from Edinburgh to Singapore next month. I arrive at Heathrow Terminal 5 at 0925on a BA flight and leave from Terminal 2 with Singapore Airlines at 1130 so just over 2 hours connection time.
      Will this be enough? I'm not sure if I can check my suitcase through from Edinburgh as I don't think there is a Singapore Airlines check in there.(The BA ticket was bought through them though.)
      I'm panicking a little as, although I know Singapore Airlines will be obliged to get me back if I don't make the connection, all the later flights seem to be full and I have an onward connection to New Zealand that I need to get.
      I'd really appreciate any advice. 3

      Around Chepstow and Tintern Abbey

      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.

      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. (members.virtualtourist.com/m...

      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. (newport.gov.uk/stellent/grou... 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" (newport.gov.uk/stellent/grou...

      "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.
