    • 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.

      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.

      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!

      I saw National Express busses, but it's make no sense. It's cheeper to go to London Victoria and then to Preston, because directly from Luton Airport to Preston it coasts about 38 pounds, and from London to Preston is 10 pounds with the same bus. I can't understand. If someone can share better transport I'll be very thankful.

      Best Way to Get to Luton Airport

      Hi VT-ers,

      I've not been on here in absolutely ages, hope you're all well!

      Can anyone help me with the question outlined in the title please? When I'm looking to book a train, it's asking me whether I'd like to go to the Luton Airport Parkway (and from there I presume I'd take a bus. How long is this bus journey?) or if I'd prefer to get a train straight to the airport. There is a price difference of about £10 between the two (the parkway being a cheaper option, even with the us fare on top) so I'm just wondering if there is any point in getting the more expensive option and getting a train that goes straight to the airport?

      Thanks for all your help!

      Myself and a colleague are flying to Luton Airport late on a Sunday late March- I understand a taxi to Stony Stratford in Milton Keynes is about £60+. We may be in time for a late bus to MK but that alone is £33 between us and still to get a cab to Stony Stratford.

      Any suggestions, such as a non airport based hire cab company that may be less or are we stuck with £60 (and is that figure correct?)
