    • 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.

    • Best area to stay in London

      London 14 hours ago

      My sister and I are heading to London in January for a week before starting a tour through Europe. We have never been to London before so we want to see as much as we can eg. West End, Buckingham Palace, Hyde Park, British Musuem. Just wondering what suburbs would be the best to stay in- close to the action and/or close to public transport?
      We would be wanting to stay in hotels (but not super expensive ones).
      Thanks for your help!

    • Leeds, Temple Newsam, where to stay

      Leeds Nov 11, 2016 at 2:55 PM

      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?

      Thanks!

      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!

      Im visiting London soon. We are a family of 7 , 4 kids 2 x19, 17, 8 and 7. We are staying on tower bridge road. Hopefully visiting London eye, buckingham palace, hyde park, Tower bridge and Tusaudes and hoping to see the sky gardens too.
      Can anyone offer local info on places to eat on tower bridge road. We´ll probablly need to be near the apartment early evening for the younger children.

      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.

      Any info or tips will be muchly appreciated.

      December visit

      London Nov 21, 2016 at 8:40 AM

      I will be popping over to your side of the pond (again!!!) in early December. I've got all of my shows lined up, including a panto, so my evenings are all booked up but was looking for any special things to do during the day. I've been to a lot of the Christmas related things (Winter Wonderland, Southbank & Tate markets) but if there are any special exhibits at museums that I should try and fit in or maybe some place that is decorated nicely for the holidays, I'd love to hear about it.

      Me and my Friends are going to Los Angeles via London and Washington. I am a turkish citizen living in Germany and have a valid US visa. Our flight is from Dusseldorf to London and we have a layover for about 1.20h in Heathrow. The airline company told us we have to collect our luggage and have to check in again in Heatrow. My question is what if I have to cross the border even with a vilid US visa do I still need a tranist visa for UK? We will arrive and depart from terminal 2.
      BTW we fly in with Eurowings and continue with United Airlines till to our destination. Maybe someone has experienced before.

    • Renting a car

      by shill46 Online Now Mar 28, 2013 at 4:50 PM

      I'm having difficulty figuring out how to make our Normandy transportation smooth without too much luggage lugging! We are arriving by ferry at Cherbourg in the early afternoon and want to rent a car there that we will use for 4 days in Normandy. We're staying at a b&b near Bayeux, but will explore the countryside during the days, eventually going to Paris by train. Our b&b host says we can return our rental car to and take the train from Bayeux, but I can't easily figure out if it's possible to rent the car in Cherbourg and return it to Bayeux, and the only place I see to return a car in Bayeux is the Total gas station (problemmatic return?), which I doubt is near the train station. I'm guessing it's easier to drive to Caen and return the car and take the train there. Does anyone have information about these things?

      We arrive off a cruise ship in Le Havre on a Sunday (July 18) and have decided to try and see Mont St. Michel and Giverny in the same day if it's possible, in lieu of making the 2 1/12 hour drive into Paris. How far is one of those places from Le Havre, how would I get there (traveling with my teenage daughter and Mom as well!) and what would be the best way to visit both? I have also heard wonderful things about Honfleur and wish we would have time to visit there too...can I? We will be in port from 7:00 a.m.-11:00 p.m. And will there be shops open on a Sunday in Honfleur? Any suggestions would be appreciated!! Thank you, Stephanie
