    • 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.

      I plan to drive from the Scottish Borders, stopping at Hadrian's Wall then to Leeds where I'd spend one night then visit Temple Newsam the following morning.

      Can anyone recommend a pleasant b&b near TN?

      Is Temple Newsam in the city, a suburb or rural area? I'd like to stay in a less populated area.

      I haven't been able to learn much on the net. Is Wakefield convenient to TN?

      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!

      Central hotel near Watford tube station (Metropolitan line)

      Watford Apr 8, 2008 at 3:10 PM

      Looking for a mid price hotel near the centre/ near the Met line for a SINGLE room for 2 nights midweek in July. Not often I book a single room and see that most places seem to charge about 95% of a double!

      As a frequent visitor to London and former resident I am already au fait with all of the best hotel chains and reservations web sites. Is there though someone locally who can advise a good location (or someone who has recently stayed in the area) not far from the Tube station, nor the centre, or in the general direction of Bucknalls Lane, Garston, where I will be commuting to by cab for a coupe of mornings? I am not fussy (well - travelling on my own I'm not!) but as it's a course would like somewhere that I will get quiet at night for sleep.

      About how long does it take to get by train from St. Albans to Watford and from St. Albans to London King's Cross?? Have been "arguing" about that with a friend *lol*. On most sites it says a train ride from St. Albans to King's Cross would only take about 20 minutes! My friend however claims it would take up to two hours (she checked some train sites)! I really can't imagine that it takes THAT long and I've taken a train from Stevenage (which is even further north) to King's Cross many years ago and I'm sure it didn't take that long.

      hi,
      does anyone know any good websites listing accomodation in st. albans (shared accomodation, apartments etc.)? Is it difficult to find accomodation there? I will only be staying there for about 2 months. How much do you usually pay in the UK for a room in a shared house/apartment and about how much for a small apartment?

      Thanks a lot in advance!!!

      I would like to know if there is transportation between Waterford and Northwood. How can I find out about the frequency of the transportation services?

      Thanks,

      bus station / tube station

      Harpenden Jul 2, 2005 at 1:22 AM

      hello --

      i'm staying with a friend in Harpenden for about a week in the middle of this month. I'm wondering if there is a public bus operating to London proper, because if so, I can buy the travelcard for tube zones one and two but all bus zones and thus save a load of money.

      anyone know?
