      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!

      Stonehenge and Bath

      London Oct 6, 2015 at 10:21 AM

      I would like to know the easiest way to visit Stonehenge and Bath from London. There are several tours, but they are above my budget. I am staying at Times Square/Hooper Street. How hard would it be to take the train or a bus from my apartment to Stonehenge and Bath. Is it a long walking distance from the train or bus station to Stonehenge or is there public transport to the sight? I am assuming the train or bus stops near the main sights in Bath. We would be visiting on a Friday morning. Thank you for your help.

      Advice on Hotel/B&B near Minack Theatre in Cornwall near Penzance?

      by candmcode Online Now Feb 22, 2015 at 12:17 PM

      We plan on attending an evening play at the Minack Theatre, which I believe is near Penzance, but have booked a self-catering cottage in Port Isaac. Since the play will be getting out later in the evening and we are both unfamiliar with the local roads, as well as unaccustomed to driving on the left hand side of the road, we thought it wise to book one night nearby the Minack Theatre. Would anyone have a suggestion as to what would be a reasonable and relatively safe route and hotel to stay at for an overnight?? Thank you!

    • half-night stay

      by KateGTEE Online Now Jul 23, 2014 at 5:35 AM


      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.

      I was impressed with a First Western train advertisement showing nice places around Cornwall, UK. I stay in London and it is around 250 miles to this place. I was thinking of going in train, then take a rental car to visit around this place. Which station in that area or location is easily accessible to get rental cars. What are the various places that I can cover. I was thinking of travelling around saturday early morning, reach around noon, then take next day late evening train to London.

      Penzance long stay car parking??

      by PookieRabbit Online Now Aug 3, 2005 at 1:57 AM

      Just wondered if any local can give me a bit of advice (and good news) on the parking situation in Penzance. We are booked to go to the Isles of Scilly for 4 days via the ferry and where going to leave our car in town. I must admit it did say on the booking form to book your car parking in advance which I just tried to do. It would seem though 2 weeks isnt advance enough and you need to book months in advance for the secure parking.. Anyway apart from the 2 secure car parks near the ferry terminal (Penders and Harbour Garages) I just wondered if anyone could recomend anywhere else to dump the car in Penzance for a few nights? Does the train station have a long stay car park and do you have to book?

      Places To Sleep Around Penzance

      by psychocy Online Now Feb 5, 2005 at 6:30 AM

      Hello, My girlfriend and I are going to England for 3 months on a limited backpacking budget this spring-summer. The first day we'll arrive in Penzance we'll need to have cheap accomodations for a couple nights until the chalet we are staying in becomes available a few days later. We are bringing a tent and are more than willing to camp, but we don't know if there are any campgrounds in or around Penzance that we could get to before nightfall. Our train will arrive there around 4:00pm, so we can't hike too far if we're going to camp or go to a hostel. We could take a taxi, if the fare to where we're going is low, but what I don't want to do is spend a bunch of cash on a hotel for the first few nights. Any ideas? Any campgrounds, hostels, cheap hotels, or public camping sites in or around Penzance? Any stretches of land nobody would care about me pitching tent in? Anybody who lives around there and would be willing to put us up on your property for a small fee? Trying to save as much money as possible for the fun things... Regards and thanks, Ken

      Best Pub In West Penwith?

      Hello, Can anyone tell me the best pub in Penzance to kick back with a pint of Guinness and relax? Maybe play some darts or pool, or chat with old-timers in a relatively quiet, non-rowdy atmosphere? The less blaring televisions the better. Doesn't have to be Penzance, either. Mousehole, Newlyn, Drift - wherever, as long as it's in the general area. Regards, Ken

      Hello, Can anyone tell me if the bus still runs from Penzance to Sancreed, or where I could get the bus schedule there? I am heading back to Cornwall for 3 months this March to June (2005) with my girlfriend, and am hoping the bus still runs to the village I stayed in last year. I seem to remember there was some doubt as to how long that particular route would last. I think maybe it was the number 9... not sure. Anyone have any ideas? Regards, Ken

      A few days in Cornwall

      by monkeyfeesh Online Now Aug 8, 2003 at 10:59 AM

      I'm off down to Penzance on the 21st, coming back on the 24th, so i've got three nights, two full days, and two half-days. Myself and my girlfriend are already going to the Minack theatre on Friday evening, so we've got that part planned out. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions of what to do in the rest of the limited amount of time we have there. We're definitely going to pop round to St Michael's Mount; roughly how long should we allow for a visit there? And are there any good mini-tours from Penzance? Additionally, can anybody recommend some nice restaurants and pubs?
