    • 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.

    • Transferring from international flight at North Terminal to domestic flight at South Terminal

      Gatwick Nov 14, 2016 at 4:44 PM

      Hello, I am looking at booking a flight from Sydney, Australia to Newquay, Cornwall via Gatwick with 2 children and 3 checked-in bags (the children are 10&13 so can wheel their own luggage).

      I have two connecting flight options with my Emirates flight, which lands at North Terminal at 7.20am:

      1. Flybe from South Terminal at 9.30am
      2. Flybe from South Terminal at 1.35pm.

      Common sense is saying hang around for the 1.35pm flight but that's a long time to sit at Costa, especially after a 23-hour journey & with two tired children ... Do you think (providing the plane lands on time) that I'd have a good chance of making the 9.30am flight or would it be just too much of a rush?

      Thanks in advance

    • 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!

      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).

      Best Christmas Market in the UK

      United Kingdom Nov 21, 2016 at 3:36 PM

      Hi,

      My girlfriend is coming to visit me for Christmas and she is keen to visit a Christmas market and drink mulled wine. I would love some advice as to which is the best in Britain. We will visit the one in Cambridge, as that is where I am based, but otherwise we are fairly flexible as to where we go; we are also going to south Wales and maybe Devon. I have heard Birmingham does a pretty good one.

      Please could you give me your recommendations for Christmas markets, and if possible let me know when they are open?

      Thanks very much!

      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!

      Route B3314

      by grandmaR Online Now Mar 18, 2015 at 4:45 PM

      The road B3314 to Port Isaac was very narrow and windy. I'd rather drive on a slightly wider road as this was only about a car wide. Is there any way out of Port Isaac that is on a better road. (I have used Google maps and a paper map and asked people, but I really can't tell that any road out is better and people are a little vague)

      Traveling to Port Isaac from London

      by candmcode Online Now Feb 20, 2015 at 8:23 AM

      Hi! I'm looking for recommendations on the best way to get from London Heathrow to Port Isaac.
      We are visiting from the USA and will be staying in Port Isaac for a week. We arrive in London on Thursday,
      May 27, and have a booking for a week in Port Isaac beginning the following day. It was suggested to me
      by a friend that we avoid driving directly from London, and instead look for public transportation to somewhere,
      possibly Bath, and stay the first night there, and renting a car from that point for the week. Any comments or suggestions?

      Also, I know that my husband will be too tired after traveling to explore Bath very extensively in the short time we
      will be there, so we were thinking, perhaps of traveling back through there for the following weekend. Would that
      be a good idea, if anyone out there is familiar with the area? We are open to suggestions. We will end our trip in
      London for the last few days, so basically we have 1 week in Cornwall, with Port Isaac as base, then another week from a Friday leaving Port Issac, to the following Thursday, departing from Heathrow. I would love any suggestions someone familiar with the trip could provide.

      Doc Martin filming schedule for 2015?

      by grandmaR Online Now May 7, 2014 at 6:22 PM

      Does anyone know the filming schedule for the Doc Martin TV show for next year? Or care to hazard a guess based on a time frame based on what it has been in the past. I'm sure at some point I knew this information, but all I can find on-line is that one year they were finished by August. But my husband thinks they film in the winter or spring and are not there in the summer.

      Also what is the off-season for this location?

      Places for backpackers to stay in/around Port Isaac?

      by psychocy Online Now Mar 16, 2004 at 8:05 PM

      Any hostels, campsites, cheap bed & breakfasts, or even just places where one can pitch a tent somewhere near here? I'll be backpacking through Cornwall this April and the Port Isaac area seemed a convenient place to spend the night between Tintagel and Padstow on the coastal path. I'm on a very tight budget and have no vehicle, only public transport and my own legs. Regards, Ken
