      Kensington area

      London 23 hours ago

      We have booked a hotel near Kensington Olympia, since we are attending a happening at there. Now I have noticed that it might be expensive area to eat out at night, or visit some pubs Is it so? I´m not so pleased to our hotel, that I could easily change it, if I find something at reasonable price and with not too many changes of underground when attending to Olympia. There´s 3 weeks to go, so I´d rather decide soon.

      Windsor, Bath and Cotswolds as 2 day trips??

      London Jul 6, 2015 at 7:50 PM

      Hello all! I have 2 days that I am trying to plan but I am lost on the how to's and if it can be done. Idealy on day one I would like to do Windsor and then go back to the hotel in london. Then on the second day train to bath see the roman baths, the jane austin centre and the circus (we have been to bath once before and are going with newbies - this is all the are interested in) then going out to the cotswolds to see Castle Combe and Bibury and that direction. We only want to see a few towns (2 or 3) before heading back to bath for dinner, then train back to London. I also thought that we could do windsor and cotswolds by rental car on day one. Stay the night someplace in that area and then on to bath the next day spending the day looking/shopping and heading back to london that night. What would be the best option?? I am uneasy about driving on the other side of the road so would option 2 not be a good idea or is it not a big deal? Thanks!! 

       

      **UPDATE** I know this is a lot in the amount of time we have but we just want an overview

    • Surprising Boyfriend

      Heathrow Jul 27, 2015 at 4:54 AM

      Hey everyone,

      My boyfriend is flying in from Australia and landing in Heathrow at 6am on Wednesday and then flying to Amsterdam at 3pm that afternoon. I'm flying into Heathrow tomorrow night and sleeping in arrivals so I can surprise him when he lands. I am now worried that he won't need to go through customs and go through arrivals. The second flight to Amsterdam isn't on the same ticket as his original flight so does it count as a connecting flight? Or will he have to go out through customs before he catches his next flight?

      Cheers, Monique :-)

      Hadrian's Wall

      Northumberland Mar 2, 2011 at 6:38 PM

      I'm thinking about doing a day trip from Newcastle to visit part of the wall. I'm hoping to take the AD122 bus to Housesteads and then walk from there to Milecastle Inn and hopefully catch the bus back. According to the bus schedule, I can get there at around 10:30 and have to make it to Milecastle Inn by 16:30, so I have less than 6 hours to get there.

      Based on the 15 circular walks guide I downloaded from the Hadrian's Wall site, this section is marked as "strenuous" and about 6-7 miles long. Has anyone actually walked there before and can tell me if it is as strenuous as the guide said? How long would it take for someone in average shape to complete this? I can do distance but am less comfortable with hills (as there are none back home). Since I have limited time, if it would take too long (say more than 4 hours continuous), I'll probably have to stop at Steel Rigg instead.

      Thanks.

    • Travel plans - Hadrians Wall - Roman sites

      Northumberland Jul 5, 2008 at 10:00 PM

      In mid October 08, after a stay in the Highlands my wife and I are considering train to Carlisle and hiring a car. We are visiting the south of the Eden Valley - Appleby, Long Marton, Dufton - where my family originally farmed (from at least 17th Cent) before settling in Oz in 1850s. We also want to see the Lakes District and spend a few days visiting Roman sites along the Wall. We expect to have 4 full days and 2 part days before train to Bath.

      We are considering using a central base (hotel or B & B) and driving out to accomplish our travel interests.

      We think these ideas are achievable given the distances involved - or lack of them. It all seems so small and compact compared to travelling in Oz.

      We would be grateful for any comments, criticisms or tips about the above; recommendations about accomodation; must see places along the Wall - Vindolanda and Cawfields seem to me to be definites.

      many thanks

      travel from Newcastle - Holy Island Jan 08

      Northumberland Feb 22, 2007 at 5:16 PM

      Hi, I'm looking at taking a short trip to Holy Island as my UK stopver between South Asia and Canada. I have a window of only a few days and would need to get to Lindisfarne from Newcastle airport approx 2 pm Thurs Jan 3, and then back again in 2 days. I know there is a train to Berwick-on-Tweed, although timing is everything with the tides. I have been trying to enquire about ordering a private shuttle-taxi to take me there, and then pick me up again (to be dropped off at a Newcastle hotel on the Saturday). Unfortunately my queries seem to be ignored even though I'm only asking for a possible price compared to renting a car (which I know could be even more expensive, and I may need an international driver's permit along with my Canadian driver's license). Do any of you know of a shuttle service that can be ordered between Newcastle and the island?? Normally I would get a train from Newcastle to Berwick, then a taxi from there, but time is not a luxury that day... thanks for advice...

      Various tips

      Hubby and I have plans to see Northumberland too next time we visit family in Lincolnshire. None of us can drive so we wonder if it is possible to leave the mainline and main roads by bus/coach too between places other than major towns? Any good link to county transport? Things we have in mind are: Alnwick - a must since brother-in-law had a shop there once and I want to see the castle. Bamburgh - a must for an Ivanhoe fan who loves beaches Lindisfarne - well I'm Scandinavian...hehe Hadrians Wall - how and where by bus to still see an interesting part? Anything else we "must" do? We plan to go around Easter. Any special events? Closing days (hubby feels more Swedish than English these days)?
