      Advice on Burslem, Please?

      Stoke-upon-Trent Apr 19, 2014 at 1:04 AM

      Hi. It looks like I'm going to have to relocate from the East Midlands to Burslem and I really need the (sensible) advice of Stoke residents about a particular neighbourhood.

      It's the Joseph Street/Billinge Street/Lyndhurst Street neighbourhood, on the north side of Newcastle Street.

      Is it a bearable area to live in? Or does it have any sort of a reputation for stuff like antisocial student behaviour or any other kind of antisocial behaviour?

      I must say it looks pretty seedy on Google Street View, but then that's Stoke for you, isn't it? It's an unpretentious, scuffed sort of post-industrial city and famous for it, but the folk who live there are supposed to be okay. Mind you, I appreciate that areas can change very swiftly indeed these days due to economic migration, so frankly I don't know what to assume about that particular neighbourhood.

      Can anyone shed any light?

      Many thanks.

    • Traveling from Belfast to Alton Towers

      Alton Nov 20, 2006 at 11:27 AM

      Hi, i'm wanting to plan a trip from Belfast to Alton Towers for a weekend in March. I am unsure what is the best way and locations to travel to. I dont mind flying from either Belfast City or Belfast International Airports and I don't mind which airport I fly to. If somebody could give me advice on what is the best airport to travel to, and when I get there should I hire a car, get a train or any other form of transport. Any help will be very much appreciated.

      regards,

      Steven

      Europe on $5 a Day

      Newcastle under Lyme Oct 27, 2004 at 7:39 AM

      Many years ago, long before VT, Lonely Planet, Rough Guide, etc. there was a book called Europe on5 and10 a Day. At the time I thought this was a huge amount of money to travel on per day and felt I could do it on much less. I was just wondering what young people today consider to be, what I used to call, a suicide budget? I suppose the major difference these days is that I used to hitch-hike which isn't common these days ... Alastair
