      self-guided walk routes with offine map

      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?

      Stonehenge and Bath

      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.

      Meadowhall Park and Ride

      by Piggy73 Online Now Apr 20, 2013 at 6:33 AM

      I am hoping to use the park & ride and catch the tram to the Don Valley stadium - but it is not clear what the cost will be. I would really appreciate if someone can clarify this. The tram site says it is £3 return or I could get a day travel ticket for £4.00. Another site says the fare is £4.50 and I have to purchase the ticket from a machine in the car park? There was also something about a family travelcard for £6.50 - can 2 adults travel on this without children in the family?
      Also one person travelling with us has a UK concessionary travel pass - is this valid from the park and ride for free travel?
      Thanks in advance for any information.

      One Day in Sheffield

      by Skinke Online Now Jan 1, 2010 at 5:55 PM

      We find ourselves with 1 extra day of travel during our trip to Yorkshire. Leaving Whitby toward London for return flight to USA gives us an opportunity to spend a brief time along a direct train route South. Our thinking was check out Whitby hotel early, short train somewhere in order to experience a different destination and next day long travel back to London ( we have already spent some tome there in the beginning of our trip ) Hotel in London will be close to Heathrow. We are interested in Sheffield because of its botanical gardens, the Wintergarden and Magna. Any comments from the VT gang would be appreciated in support of this plan as well as recommendations for hotel choices and things to do for an afternoon in Sheffield.

      Getting from National Express arrival bus station to Moncrieffe Road, Netheredge

      by Gichuck Online Now Jul 16, 2009 at 7:22 AM

      Can I ask for local advice please, on several related questions. We (2) are arriving in Sheffield on a National Express coach from Leeds on Saturday 18 July. We then need to get to Moncrieffe Road. I gather the bus is the 22. Where exactly does the coach arrive, and where should I catch the 22? Or, as we are two, should we take a taxi?

      Further question. Do I need to book the National Express coach in advance from Leeds to Sheffield, or can we book when we get to the bus station? We are flying in to Leeds Bradford airport, so we cannot be sure of when we will get to Leeds bus station.

      Thanks for your help and advice.

      I am organising a training event in Hillsborough Barracks and I’m looking for accommodation for several people.

      It needs to be a reasonable standard, safe etc and handy for the barracks (easy walking distance if possible).

      I know the Garrison and that’s ideal but I also need somewhere else.

      Is there any good alternative way to Sheffield?

      And maybe anyone can give mi a few website to booking of coaches and the operating time and the estimated price of the coaches.
