      Does there anybody here live in Alton, Hampshire, or is there anybody here is a walk-enthusiast, who had done some walks in Hampshire : Alton - Chawton - Farringdon (Upper) - Selborne; walk the South Down National Park and / or benefiting the South Down's rambler services (Refer to : Visit-Winchester or Visit-Hampshire) ?
      I am interested in those activities, yet haven't "seen" the latest reviews on them.

    • Restaurants with fairy lights.

      London Nov 22, 2015 at 9:50 AM

      Hi there, so my question isn't really a travel related question at all it's actually just about dining in London.. I'm trying to be very picky but I'm looking for a nice romantic restaurant of any cuisine that is decorated with fairy lights, now I know this sounds crazy but my parter has wanted to go to a restaurant of this description for some time and I just haven't been able to find anywhere. Somewhere that uses fairy lights to decorate the inside of the restaurant or even the trees around the building and things like that.. I really hope someone can help me! Thank you all for reading!

    • Boxing Day

      Edinburgh Nov 13, 2015 at 11:37 AM

      I'll be in Edinburgh over the Christmas holiday and wondering what will be open on Boxing Day. I know the museums and castles are closed, but what about shops and restaurants? Will there be anything for me to do that day?

      Also, on Christmas day I want to eat somewhere nice but not stuffy - kind of old school/traditional with a good, warm environment. I'm staying in New Town and will be alone. Any advice?

      What are the chances that we get tickets ( 2) to The LN at The Proms , Prince Albert Hall.
      A return trip to the UK has moved up into the top ten destinations.
      We are only really interested in hearing three songs, "Jerusalem", "I Vow to You My Country", and "Rule Brittannia " with Sarah Connelly, providing the live entertainment.
      External venues look impressive but vacating 200,000 people from such a venue is not that appealing.
      The next option is Northern Spain.

    • Connecting from AA to BA with checked bags

      Heathrow Yesterday

      I am arriving from the US on AA into Terminal 3 and departing T3 on BA to Dublin issued as one ticket. Will checked bags go all through. Will I do customs in London or Dublin?

    • Can I use Flight Connections Bus-separate tickets and no checked bags?

      Heathrow Nov 14, 2015 at 1:29 PM

      I have two separate tickets--Virgin Atlantic from the U.S. to LHR arriving Terminal 3 and then a British Airways flight from Terminal 5 to Brussels. No checked baggage and I'll have my boarding pass for BA flight with me (on phone and paper backup). Can I use the "Flight Connections" path and bus to transfer to Terminal 5? Or must I follow the "Arrivals" path and then have to get over to Terminal 5 on my own via Tube or Heathrow Express?

    • Time needed for next flight.

      Heathrow Yesterday

      My son booked a ticket through a travel agent.He is arriving from India to Heathrow by Air India at 11-30 and next flight from Gatwick to Amsterdam by BA at 15:50. I dont think he has enough time to go trough passport control & reach Gatwick. So I think a separate ticket from Heathrow to Amsterdam is safer. Both flights from terminal 4 but he needs to go through passport control, baggage claim then check in again. Please advise if this is a better plan & how much time needed for transfer. Sorry for the long message and thank you 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.

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

      Many thanks
