    • half-night stay

      Penzance 3 hours ago

      Hi

      I just got the summer job with my friend at one of the Hotels in Isle of Scilly. We are arriving to Penzance this weekend. We are coming by bus from London and we will arrive at around 2am at Penzance Bus Station. Our boat leaves at 9am. We don't have much money and renting a room for half a night seems too expensive (we are already spending over 200 ponds on the tickets. We were wondering if there is some sort of waiting room opened? Maybe at the railway station?

      We tried calling hotels with 24h reception asking if we could wait in their lounge, for a small charge if necessary but no luck here.

      It is our first visit to Cornwall and we would appreciate any help.

      iPhone use in England

      England Jul 19, 2014 at 9:37 PM

      I now have an iPhone. I have no problem communicating with family by email, but it may be that I will have to actually make a phone call. Can I do this with an iPhone as I don't think there is a sim card in it. (I traded in the phone with the sim card as it was so irritating - it would turn itself on in my pocket.) I don't know if it is unlocked or locked. Does an iPhone get locked? Do I have to buy a phone when I get there to use?

      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

      Northumberland Jan 6, 2004 at 5:52 AM

      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)?
