    • 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.

    • Leeds, Temple Newsam, where to stay

      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!

      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.

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.

      Nottingham City Buses

      Nottingham Mar 5, 2016 at 10:46 AM

      Our trip to Nottingham is drawing nearer and I already got some good advice from members here, for which I am grateful. But now it comes to details. Please bear with me, LOL - I'd be less nervous if I was travelling by myself but I am in charge of our small group, and I have a reputation to lose and lengthy discussions to avoid: think five ladies who all consider themselves travel-experienced but know close to nothing about this particular city. In other words, I'd appreciate idiot-proof directions...

      Question: How to get from Nottingham railway station to our hotel in Derby Road (The Strathdon)?
      It is probably a bit too far to walk with luggage.

      I found https://www.nctx.co.uk/ but somehow i get stuck in the route planner. In the map I see a bus stop just opposite the hotel in front of the cathedral, but it does not seem to have a name. The system does not recognize the address of the hotel and keeps sending me to some village southwest of the city.
      Can we buy tickets from the bus driver, from a ticket machine, or where and how? Do we buy five singles, or is there a cheaper option?
      Travel date and time is next Wednesday in the late afternoon.

      Thank you for your understanding and for any help! ;-)

      Nottingham - in and around

      Nottingham Oct 20, 2015 at 3:47 PM

      Well, one should not have "great ideas"... I find myself in the situation that I'll have to plan and organize a trip to Nottingham for a small group, without having ever been there. Please help me to find and sort some thoughts and point me into directions for further research. We are in the very first stages of brainstorming, so forgive my present ignorance. Detailed and well-researched questions will surely follow later on when the idea becomes a plan.

      Background: We have been invited to Nottingham for the anniversary of our sister club (one weekend), and the basic idea is planning our own trip of 5-6 days around this. Travel date will be mid March - this is non-negotiable because of the event that we will be attending. Not the most perfect season, I know, but we want to make the best of it.

      Who: small group of 6-8 ladies between fourties and seventies. Some walking is fine but not too strenuous hikes.

      Interests: vary, of course, but culture and history rank high, museums and historical buildings (so far I found the castle, Wollaton Hall and the textile museum, City of Caves, maybe Galleries of Justice Museum). The footsteps of Robin Hood should also be followed.
      Some spare time for shopping will be appreciated. Are there any good street markets, or areas with little shops, arts and crafts and such, in Nottingham?

      Option a) staying the whole time in Nottingham, and including a day trip or two. Hints are welcome: Any good day trip options, easy to reach on public transport, preferably trains? A castle, a picturesque village or small town, a historical town/city with a great cathedral, etc.? Lincoln perhaps?

      Option b) a second base in a different city for 2-3 nights. Undecided where.

      Looks like the most convenient airport will be Birmingham, as there are direct flights from Frankfurt. Any comments on the city of Birmingham, is it worth a closer look and consideration?

      Nottingham and english pubs: gay v straight -Is it ok?

      Nottingham Apr 13, 2008 at 11:41 AM

      Greetings All,
      I am going to be in Nottingham on business. My co worker in nottingham said it was customary to go to a nightclub that was gay. However, my fellow portugese friends may feel a little bit strange going to bar that is for gay folks. My question is, is it really customary , common and accepted for straight men and women to to go a club that is designated for gays? if so, then great, its a custom and no issues. If not, then i probably wouldnt recommend it. We want to experience the true english experience, but i dont want to be out of place.
