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! Thanks

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).
Hello 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 Kirsty
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!!
Hi: 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! 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! RomanCandle
What is the fastest way to get from Wells to Heathrow? Cost is not important. Thanks.
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.
Dear all, 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! Ira

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, Bob

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.

Hi, I'm planning to travel from London to Bath late this month. Could someone please recommend: 1) Which train or bus is best to take, and what is the cost? I assume the earlier I leave the better so I can spend the whole day there. 2) Any nice quaint village nearby I can spend the night, and get the feel of a typical English countryside village ? or I can find this in Stratford-uopn-Avon ? 3) transport from Bath to Stratford-upon-Avon and from thereon to either Gatwick or Stansted. Also is Startford-upon-Avon doable in about 1/2 day ? I'm planning a late afternoon flight to Amsterdam. thanks in advance!
Hi, Am planning to visit Bath in mid April. Would like to book a serviced apartment, but they seems to work out to £100+ per night. Are there any similar alternatives a short drive away from the city? Have google'd around but not really found much. I was thinking of booking some apartments in Bristol which seem to be a lot cheaper, is this a good option? Can anyone recommend any apartments (not interested in B&B's), looking to spend £60 to £80 max. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
We are travelling from pembroke to cornwall and staying over night in Bath - maybe the Travel Lodge - any info on this hotel welcome, also a good place to eat between pembroke and bath for Family?
I am planning to visit Bath when I visit London this year, and I am thinking of saving a bit by using the National Express instead of trains. I want to book the Funfair ticket, but as of today when I checked their website, they don't have that ticket choice. So, for the Funfair tickets, are they only available a certain time before a date? (ie, maybe 2 months before the travel date?) I am thinking about traveling around the last week of May, so will they become available as that date approaches? Secondly, do I have to book in advance, or will I be fine just showing up at the station and buying the ticket? And lastly, I have read on several forums that some train and coach companies do not allow oversea customers from purchasing because they don't have a UK address. Is National Express one of them? Thank you!
Can anyone suggest cheaper parking in Bath. We are staying at the Hilton in Walcot street and understand that guests usually park in the podium car park which is 19 pounds a night. Are their cheaper car parks which are within 10 to 15 mins walking? Thank you Ellie
