    • 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

      We are heading off to North Wales this coming weekend (Short notice I know)

      Sunday we stay the night in Anglesey and then down to Pwllheli for the next 4 nights.
      The only plans I have at the moment are a half day trip to Barmouth and another half day on a train ride up Snowdon.
      We are not the best walkers in the World but we can potter round markets and castles and the like.

      Are there any little gems or places we should go and see in this general area, transport is not a problem as we will be in our car.

      Hi there, I am going to the UK for around 3 1/2 weeks in May and plan to spend around 7 - 10 days in Wales. I have been to Cardiff, Newport, Chepstow and Tinturn Abbey/Wye Valley areas before, but I need to see more.....
      I am traveling alone and by train and bus only (learner driver).
      One of my passions is photography..... I love pretty coastal villages, old ruins/boats, dark stormy skies, flowers.....just beautiful scenery in general.
      So far, I am thinking to go from Liverpool to Chester, then to some or all of these places: Conwy, Bangor, Caernarfon, Portmeiron, Aberystwyth, Cardigan, and Tenby. I would also love to go to the top of Snowdonia via the train.
      I would like to stay somewhere (maybe Aberystwyth) for at least a couple of nights and use it as a base for walking/busing short distances to explore off the beaten track.
      What do you think of my itinerary at the moment? Anything I should maybe skip? Any suggestions for areas of outstanding beauty I should see?
      Thanks a lot! :-)

      Wales Oct 26, 2015 at 4:35 AM

      Hi.. I need help and suggestions on a few things. I'll be travelling with my wife and 3 kids (4yrs,2yrs & 1yrs). We be renting a car from Manchester Airport. We be in UK for 8 days and hope to have a wonderful scenery trip there. Someone told me Wales is a mix of both Cornwall & Scotland. The only downside is maybe I'll be travelling in early April where weather is either can be very good or bad. I was thinking of 2 base for accommodation (3 days each). One at the North and the 2nd near South but not sure which area is best to stay.

      North Wales
      I read that Nant Ffrancon pass and llanberis pass via Capel Curig are both scenic route. Any other route that I can add on to it.

      Places of Interest
      (1) Would love to hike up to Snowden but with kids I understand that it is impossible. Read that there is a train that went up but it depend on the weather. Any easy hiking trail route apart Snowden. I've heard about Yr Eifl but not sure hows the route there.
      (2) Like to try the Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railways (return trip). Not sure where to start and how long is the trip.
      (3) Like to explore Lyn Peninsula,Caernarfon,Anglesey etc. Any scenic route that I can pass. Any place where I can stop for cliff view pictures.

      South Wales
      Drive via A70 route. Heard that route is quite scenic. Would love to stop by Hay-on-Wyes just to feel the books before moving off to my 2nd base. For South Wales I would like to discover more on Pembrokeshire (St Davids,Solva, Goodwick etc) area. More to the beaches, cliffs with views.

      Place of Interest
      ???

      Basically I am willing to drive any routes that is for picturesque views. Though I understand roads in UK can be congested during peak, I will try to keep it simple and just drive where I can or pass through. This is also not a finalize plan so I am open to suggestions.

      Once I am done with Wales, I may travel up back to Birmingham for a day before heading up back to Manchester.

      Thank you in advance.

I have never been to Cardiff (am from the US) and wondered if it is relatively safe to walk this at night? If not, is there a public bus I can take or will taxis be my only option? (And will there be an easy to flag taxi or do I need to prebook this)?

      Where to stay

      Wales Mar 1, 2015 at 8:32 AM

      Hi,
      we'd love to visit Wales over Easter for a week and were wondering where to stay to make the most of it. Our idea is to see both the Brecon Beacons NP and the Pembrokeshire Coast NP, so we'd need accomodation close by. Ideally, there is some small picturesque village with a nice pub, lots of old houses, magnificent views and of course a cosy B&B. It's probably better to stay in both places for about three days each instead of choosing just one base - or is it? Our interests are hiking/walking, but we are also very likely to just drive around by car and discover the area. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

    • Sunday evening meal, dog friendly, Porthcawl

      Porthcawl Nov 3, 2014 at 8:15 AM

      Can anyone help with somewhere to eat in Porthcawl on a Sunday evening, with a well behaved dog in tow? Would really appreciate any help. I know there are some great places for Sunday lunch, but I can't find anything for the evening.

      If we stay inside the town walls ( St Marys Street) will be able to drive to our car park if we arrive before 4pm?

      My daughter and I have enjoyed Ireland and England. We are interested in both Scotland and Wales. Which would you recommend and why?
