My wife and I will be in the UK for about 6 days (our second visit) and want to visit Stonehenge, Windsor and some places in London like the British Museum. Wondering if it would be better to stage from Bath and make the day trips from Bath instead of the day trips from London. Any thoughts?
My teenage students have joined a competition on a cultural visit to the UK in summer. They wish to include a dinner in the Presto and would like to see if their budget allows the meal for 4. It would help them to write up a proposal if anyone can give information about the price of dishes, or how much a decent 4-course dinner might cost. Thanks!
Next Monday I am travelling to Bath and will be meeting my niece & her boyfriend, who are both twenty years old. I will have a limited budget and although I would like to do the "Touristy" activities, I also want to see the "real" Bath, find cosy pubs where locals go, maybe some local music. I am following many musicians (singer songwriters who are either from the area or now live/study here)
I am staying in a hostel, (I think they organise a free walking tour).
I will be meeting the young people about lunch time & I don't want to bore them with too much museum visits, if the weather is fine I want to photo the fine architecture, and in the evening we will want to enjoy a cosy pub with live music.
I look forward to some suggestions please.

I will be attending the University of Bath this year from October. I would like to know what kind of clothes are advisable to wear in the city. Shorts and tees? Formals? Jeans? Hoodies? Jackets? or whatever. Eagerly waiting for an answer. I need to do a lot of shopping. :D
My wife and I have 2 weeks in a rental car going round the south west starting and finishing in Southampton in July before joining the Celebrity Eclipse cruise into the Baltic.
We would like any tips on routes to take and recomended B&Bs / Farm Stays along the way. We want to avoid motorways as much as posible.
We realize July is peak season so if you know of places that wont be too crowded would be great!

Hi Now backpacking in beautiful Bath, would like to go to Stonehenge and just wonder are there any half day or day trips that go to Stonehenge and/or surrounding areas. What sort of price should I expect to pay and how much time do you need to spend there. Happy to hear of other suggestions, have only managed to get 2 nights accommodation at this stage but will extend if possible. Have come through from Bristol and suggestions which way I should head from here, Actually went from London to Cardiff and then back through Bristol to Bath look forward to hearing local knowledge of area. Cheers
Does anyone know the best way to get to Glastonbury from London in mid-May, 2010? Thanks!
I wonder if anyone has a favorite B&B in Bath? We'd rather be close to the city centre than further out where it takes 10-15 minutes to walk into town. Any restaurant tips would also be appreciated - interesting, excellent meal other than a Michelin starred (only one in Bath).
I am off to Bristol to see the Banksy exhibition soon and wanted to make a weekend of it all with some natural wonders thrown in.
I have heard that you can get from Bristol to Cheddar on bus 672 or 674 from Bristol - Does anyone know the website where I can confirm times for this.
I also need somewhere reasonably priced to stay for one night in Cheddar or another pretty village so that we can stay over and then hop on the bus tour through the gorge or similar. Any recommendations. We are not looking to spend more than £75 for both of us for the one night, a lovely place to stay for less would be fabulous but camping is out of the question as I am heavily pregnant!
On a quick search it seemed that Cheddar accommodation was dear and may all be full. Where else could we stay?
What is Bream like? would public transport to the gorge be possible from there? and is there anywhere nice to stay there?
Also wondered whether Burnham on sea or Axbridge were picturesque with the necessary accommodation and public transport links to the gorge
many many thanks for your help
Hi there, i would to find out how do i get from London to Cheddar? I know it's near to bristol but i was thinking if i could get straight to Cheddar instead of going to bristol den only heading to Cheddar to see the caves as i'm only making a day trip from London. Thank you all in advance!!
I am from Dubai and will be traveling to Bath in mid-August from Cheltenhham by car. I thought to park my car at Lansdown Park and Ride and take the bus to city center. My English colleague painted a bleak picture of park & ride system saying that I would have to wait in the rain for the bus to the city center, that it would be very slow and that I would never find the bus way back. Is it that bleak or park & ride system work as well as promised in the websites ?
I am planning to do research at the Somerset Records Office in Taunton during the last two weeks of July. Is it practical to stay in the area without renting a car? Or is it practical to take a train every day from Bath, Bristol of Weston-Super-Mare? Thanks for all suggestions.
Hi all! My friend and I will be in Bath on Friday night, and would like a recommendation for a great pre-theatre meal in the city centre. Max budget for two: £50-60.
A friend and I will be in Bath for a day on 10th April, and am looking for a place to stay that's reasonably priced (£40-80) and in the city centre. We would prefer to stay at a B&B. Some B&B's aren't accepting a one night only booking. Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance!
What is the fastest way to get from Wells to Heathrow? Cost is not important.
Considering staying at the Fox & Goose prior to flight from Bristol Airport. Last 2 hotels we stayed at have been characterless - a letdown after Wales & Cornwall. It'd be nice to stay somewhere close (we'll be driving a rental car) and with a nice pub/food. Carpenters Arms looks fabulous, but too expensive for a short night, and too far? Thanks.
I will arrive 20st of March at 18:40 to Bristol Airport. What is the best way to get to Glastonbury that evening? First bus to Temple meads and then bus 376 to Glastonbury? I will stay in Dragonfly B&B, is it easy to reach from the busstop?
Thanks for your replies!

Be setting off for yeovil just before 12 the next day, so I will only have a few hours of tourism any recomendations of what I should not miss.
I'll try and give myself more time next time :-)
I'm planning on staying in Bath for a three day decompression vacation before some business travel in London and the continent. Anyway I know nothing about Bath and would like some inputs into what to do and esp. where to stay. Since this is a personal part of the trip, I'd like to keep thing relatively simple and cheap -won't have a car so keeping things in walking distance is important and lodging in the 50 pd area seems about right.
Good pubs, restaurants and things to do during the day would be most helpful. I'll be there Thursday, Friday and part of Saturday then off to London.
Thanks in advance for your help,
Hi, i'm going to reading festival on Thursday and my coach leaves from Avon Street Car Park, could anyone please tell me the fastest way to get from Bath Spa station to the car park, this would be much appreciated and is pretty urgent. cheers xx
Hi, I'm attending a function in Bath and finding accomodation a little scarce and expensive. Since it's only for one night would it be viable to stay at a hotel in Bristol and take a taxi to/from Bath? Would the taxi-drivers be okay doing that on a Saturday night?
Has anyone stayed at the Bath Hilton and could offer an assessment? I'm considering booking their for a night in July, and I wanted to make sure it was comfortable and in a good location. Thanks for any help.
My fiance and I are going to visit Bath when we visit London this summer. It'll be only 2 days. As it's such a short time, I tried to fit as much places and activities as possible, but hopefully it'll still not been too tight. Please look over and give me your expert opinions! Thanks!
We ride the National Coach Bus to Bath, which will arrive at 12:50pm
Go to hotel
Royal Crescent Museum
Pulteney Bridge, Pulteney Weir and Pulteney Street
Our coach bus doesn't leave till 3:25pm, so we were thinking we'd go somewhere? But with our luggages with us, it might not be a good idea. Any ideas of how to spend the day after checking out from the hotel till 3 in the afternoon?
