      Where to go before evening ferry from Harwich

      Colchester Sep 23, 2016 at 3:35 PM

      Hi and thanks in advance for your time!

      Towards the end of October, I'm going to be coming by car from southern England to Harwich to catch an overnight ferry to Holland. I'm going to have some time to kill from probably 1pm to around 7.30pmish, as I think check-in starts at 8pm. I'm thinking of going to Colchester zoo in the afternoon then to the Waterfront restaurant, Lower Marine Parade, Harwich then to the port to check-in.

      My main concerns are the weather could turn out to be terrible, with the zoo turning out to be a bad idea, especially at this time of year. I have looked at information on Colchester itself and it looks pretty from what I can tell, but am unsure if I could spend so much time there around shops, etc.

      I'm looking for options in the event of bad weather. I'm fairly open minded as to where to go, as long as it's not too far from the A12 (15-20 minutes or thereabouts) or A120.

      Any suggestions would be really appreciated and sorry for the length of this!

      I am travelling with my disabled daughter and 85 year old mum from the US to heathrow. Our flight arrives 10am, we will have to have assistance getting off the plane, so I'm guessing we'll be last off, but then we should have the buggy to take us to baggage reclaim and passport control. My question is how long will it take us to clear all the above and get to the station to catch the heathrow express to paddington? Thanks

      Hi,

      Not exactly a London question, but was wondering if anyone could advise as to the best day of the week to visit each of the above. We will be staying between Friday and Thursday and have a 4 yr old and 2 yr old. I know weekdays are obviously quieter to visit but wondering if perhaps at least one of them would be doable on Saturday or Sunday so as to have a break in between each. I assume a full day is needed for each. We also plan to visit the natural history museum to see the dinosaur exhibit on another day.

      How best to go about planning our stay please? Trip is planned for end October.

      Thanks in advance.

      Oh and any other good things you can recommend for our boys to enjoy in London are welcome!

      Hi! I am going to London in middle novemberfor a 4-night stay with a friend. I need advice as to where in London to book a hotel. Ideally I would like some place centrally located, with plenty of good budget restaurants, clothes stores, book stores, cafés and parks. I am not going to any of the big attractions such as Buckingham palace or Madame Tussauds, so proximity to tourist attractions is of non value. I want nice relaxed atmoshere, a safe neighbourhood and plenty of people-gazing opportunities. Also, if there are any places known for great Pokemon-spawns, thats a plus!

    • how many nights in Oxford Area

      Oxford Jun 5, 2014 at 8:11 PM

      We are just beginning planning our second trip to Britian. Coming from the US (dallas) the last time we spent a week in London and 4 nights north including York and Blenheim Castle areas etc. This time we plan to spend 4-5 nights in London, and then 6-8 nights driving around. The other areas on our list include Portsmouth, Stonehenge areas, and Oxford, the cotswolds, Stratford on avon and Warwick Castle. We are big Inspector Lewis/Morse and Downton Abbey fans. Im trying to figure out how many nights we should allow for the oxford area, and whether we can just stay there and visit the cotswolds, Stratford on avon and Warwick, or should we just concentrate on Oxford, and then move on to a hotel/b&B at the other places? Again, just starting to plan - so any advice appreciated. We don't like to be scheduled every minute but to allow some down time to enjoy the country and its citizens. Thanks!

      Driving in the UK countryside.......

      Oxford Sep 17, 2012 at 12:11 AM

      Hi,
      I intend to rent out a car from Hertz in Oxfordshire..... I have never driven abroad and hence have a few queries
      1) What does the term "unlimited miles included" mean? Also, what all forms of "insurance" or "additions" are a must to be safe (the website lists a huge range of can-be-chosen-inclusions)
      2) How far is this place "Osney Mead - Ferry Hinskey Road" from the centre of Oxford town or Oxford Railway Station?
      3) Whereas where we live, parking is not very heavily regulated & One can always find a familiar road or a parking lot to push the car into; however, in a place like London I am sure this would not at all be the case. However, in these small towns, like Chipping Camden or Bourton on the water or the Slaughters is parking regulated extensively and what does one do in case one doesn't know of parking spaces..... Also, is it a crime to just park by the roadside when one travels from a village to another
      Please help... As this will form the basis of my decision to drive or take the bus...
      Cheers

      Oxford Sep 10, 2012 at 2:12 AM

      Hi all,
      I know it's not really a "travel question", but I am starting a job in Oxford in three months and 'm planning to visit from New York for a few days to do some preliminary apartment hunting. My question is: how do real estate agents operate in Oxford (and, I guess, in the UK in general)? Is it like in the US, where you hire an agent and he/she searches for an apartment for you from all available sources, explains the process, helps with paperwork and, then, takes a 1 month commission? Or is it that the agent is solely a representative of his agency and shows you only those apartments which his agency is listing? I've emailed a couple of agents but they were sort of unclear. My web searches also didn't help much. If anyone has had experience in this department or can point me to a good website I'd really appreciate it!
      Thanks!

      Oxford from Toronto

      My brother is trying to get into Oxford this summer, but his dates fall right near the beginning of the Olympics and plane prices to London from Toronto are insane! We have low-cost flights from Toronto to Manchester (and then he'd have a 3-hour train ride--not bad for a Canuck), and I've also suggested he check flights into Cardiff.

      So my question is: Is there any other major airport hub around Oxford he should be looking at? Maybe he could fly from Toronto to Ireland or something and then onto cheaper carrier to a smaller English town? Any ideas? I really don't know all the airports in the area.
