    • London Reconstructing of Big Ben

      London Nov 27, 2016 at 11:14 PM

      Hi all,
      I will be heading to London for the first time in Feb 2017.
      News had mention that the reconstructing of Big Ben will start in early 2017. The last news available was in April 2017 about the works. I have also read the FAQ at the parliament website but they do not really have an indicative date.
      Read that scaffolding will take 4-6 months to build. Not sure if the view in Feb will be much effected. Saw google images of the tower with scaffolding and it's not a very pretty sight. :(
      Anyone knows of any news of the work schedule or any comments much appreciated.

      London & Ireland for 2 Weeks - Seeking Advice

      London Nov 20, 2016 at 3:28 PM

      My husband and I are thinking of doing this trip next summer (likely mid-July or early August).

      We want to spend 2 weeks: 1 week in/around London then 1 week for Ireland including travel time.

      We have lots we want to do in London - I am a huge British monarchy & literary history buff, plus we have some family in Suffolk so I feel like we have enough to occupy us there for a week. Then we were thinking of doing the rail & sail through Wales to Dublin and renting a car in Dublin to cruise around a bit for 5 days. We'd like to stay in Dublin a few nights, want to visit Blarney Castle, the Cliffs of Moher, maybe drive the Wild Atlantic Way, and stay in Galway as well. We'd then have to head back to London as I'm sure it will be cheaper to fly in/out of there.

      Does this sound like a feasible trip? Any recommendations you can offer for the Ireland leg - that itinerary is just based on the very basic things I know about Ireland, obviously, so very open to hearing what you all think! Any suggestions for things to do in London, too, are appreciated.

      We are planning on getting an airbnb outside the city centre for London and also wondering about affordability of lodgings in Dublin/Galway. Thanks!

      Also is transport easy from tower bridge road into the centre ? Is it easy enough to get 2 x cabs to take us into the centre or will we need to get a bus to the local tube station.

      Trip To The Cotswolds - Where to Stay

      Gloucestershire Sep 16, 2012 at 11:58 PM

      Hi,
      Plan to be in the Cotswolds on the night of the 25th of October 2012. The objective is to see the countryside, wade in the rivers, see the architecture of the area, enjoy some good meals and generally while away some time.........
      The plan is to: -
      # Train to Oxford on the 25th Morning
      # Spend about 4 hours in Oxford. Rent a car there for a day and drive into the Cotswolds
      # Would like to see Bourton on the water, The Slaughters, Chipping Camden (And maybe even Bibury) (Wonder if thats too much for 1pm on 25th to 1pm on 26th )
      # Back to London in the shortest possible time (via oxford or otherwise)

      We are on a short holiday and we may never come back to this part of the world/UK again and hence the hunger to see as much as possible.....

      ## Is the above doable....
      ## Any views on which town we should put up in? Should i stay in one of these towns or in a place like Cheltenham (assumption here is that in October, night will fall very early and the small towns may have little or nothing to walk around/see/do post sun down)
      ## How long will it take us to drive from Cheltenham to Chipping Camden at about 9am on a weekday morning?

      Regards,
      Francis

    • Is overnight parking a problem when staying for a week in September?

      Bourton on the Water Aug 21, 2011 at 5:48 PM

      We plan on staying in Burton on the Water in September for a week, and our accommodations don't provide parking. I've read several posts by people complaining about the difficulty and expense of parking. Will we be able to find free street parking while we are staying here? If not, what will our options be for paid parking that is convenient to the center of the village? We will need to park overnight, and also while we are in the village during the day. Are there any provisions made for visitors who are staying for an extended period, rather than just for the day? Since we will be staying a week, I don't want the cost or difficulty of parking to become a big problem.

      Cheap-ish accommodation for a group in the Cotswolds

      Gloucestershire Aug 9, 2010 at 3:51 AM

      Hi,
      I am trying to arrange a New Year retreat for my social club.
      Does anyone know of accommodation in the Cotswolds (or maybe you can suggest somewhere else) that would meet my requirements?

      We are looking for accommodation for probably about 6-10 people. We would like to keep the costs down as our club is for 18-30 year olds. We are looking at about £25 pppn. We will probably require a mixture of twin/triple/multiple and double accommodation. B&B or self catering is fine. Looking for about 3 nights - Friday 31st Dec to Mon 2nd Jan 2011.

      I would really appreciate any suggestion and I am struggling to find much accommodation in the Cotswolds at all.

      Many thanks,
