      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!

      A question about Laxfield and the B117

      Suffolk Dec 19, 2012 at 9:45 AM

      Visiting eastern Suffolk next summer on what is mainly a churchcrawling holiday (I know the west). I have found (but not booked) a cottage in Laxfield. It is just off but near the B117, which runs right through the village. Does anyone know Laxfield and/or the B117 well enough to venture an opinion of the wisdom of this idea? I've stayed in a village with a busy road through it, and it was a very unpleasant experience, but it was an A road. There are other options, but this seems like the most "strategic" base for my purposes. (I had settled on Fressingfield, but the cottage was just yanked off the market). Many thanks for any first-hand knowledge. --Spencer

    • Pizza restaurant in Ipswich town centre in 1979

      Ipswich Feb 4, 2012 at 3:44 PM

      Does anyone remember the name of a famous Pizzeria that was located in 'The Walk' in Ipswich around 1979? Entrance was either via 'The Walk' or from the Buttermarket, I think, but I'm not sure as it was so long ago. The various pizzas on the menu were all named after roman emperors and they were fantastic. It has changed ownership many times since that time sadly, but it was a terrific restaurant.

      Next month I'll be taking a short break to Suffolk and it will be the final county in England for me and then I can say I have been to every one.
      I don't really know how I've managed to avoid Suffolk in all my years of travelling but there you are. I'm sure Suffolk is a wonderful county as I'm soon to discover.
      So what would you recommend I see?
      From my base in Stowmarket I will visit Bury St Edmunds, Southwold and the village of Eye as they all look interesting places but are there any hidden gems I should know about?

      A rainy day: in Bury St Edmunds or Saffron Walden (I know, not Suffolk)?

      Suffolk May 7, 2010 at 11:49 AM

      Hi Always-Helpful VT Forum,

      I have two days left in Suffolk, based in Lavenham, before moving on to Norfolk (yes, it's the E.A. grand tour for a New Yorker). Tomorrow (Sat.) promises to be rainy. I'm saving a 'Constable country drive' for Sunday, which looks like the better day (weather). CRISIS: What to do with the rainy day? I imagined I would visit both Bury (so close) and Saffron Walden (in Essex, but not too far away). Now it seems like either/or. Any advice about the better rainy-day-choice?

      MANY thanks in advance.

    • Looking for a venue in Southwold

      Southwold Sep 19, 2007 at 4:08 AM

      My fiancé and I are planning to get married in St Edmunds church in Southwold in August 2008. We are now looking for a venue for the reception after the ceremony. As I would like to have a very traditional English wedding, we are looking for something pub-like (as opposed to a big banquet hall ... and the Swan is unfortunately out of our budget range).

      Does someone know a pub (or traditional restaurant) that has a function room or that can be rented out for a private function? It should be in the center as we are hoping to get around without using cars. There will be about 70 guests in our wedding.

      Thank you very much for your help.
