      Dorset - art/craft/glass shops and independent shops

      Hi,

      I am looking for craft like places to look at for shopping in Dorset, so pottery places/glass places, etc. I know about Poole pottery, but am really looking for small independent craft places. I have searched, but can't really see many places in Dorset (am staying near Sturminster Newton and will have a car, so can travel). If anyone can help, I would be really grateful.

    • Usual duration for a short term flat rental in Glasgow

      Glasgow 10 hours ago

      What is the usual duration for a short-term contract when you rent a flat in Glasgow?

      On many websites it just says short or long term without any time specification.
      I heard that most of the landlords prefer to put 6 months as minimum term, because of the short assured tenancies law.

      Would it possible to find something shorter such as 2 or 3 months?
      Any suggestion would be welcome.

      Thanks.

Since Amerian Air, and Iceland Air, do not share ticketing or baggage, I have to purchase two separate tickets. I will have to go thru passport control upon arrival into Heathrow, claim my baggage, exit the airport, find the correct terminal in which Iceland Air is departing from, then recheck my baggage at the Iceland Air counter, go back thru security, and,,,,,sit down.

    • Airside Transit Query in Stansted

      Stansted Aug 19, 2016 at 12:16 AM

      Hi All, I hope someone can respond to this - many thanks!

      Very simply, I'm aiming to fly with Ryanair from Glasgow to Stansted, then pick up another Ryanair flight from Stansted to Cork. I'm travelling on an Irish passport, and I'll have hand luggage only.

      I have slightly overly 1.5 hours to do this, and my question is this: is it possible to stay 'in transit' and therefore disembark at Stansted, check the flight information board when I arrive for the Stansted to Cork departure gate, then make my way to that gate WITHOUT having to go thru immigration and re-circulating via security etc.?

      When I have disembarked (from other flights) via Stansted I have noticed a 'flight connections' sign, and assumed that that was in place for that very purpose, but I'm not entirely confident about this.

      Many thanks again.

    • Does Gatwick Connect Service Save Any Time

      Gatwick Aug 4, 2016 at 10:11 AM

      I am self-connecting between two airlines through Gatwick on Tuesday, Sept. 27. First flight on Easyjet arrives from BCN at 8:35am in South Terminal. Second flight on Westjet departs to YYZ at 10:55 am also from South Terminal. This is only after Westjet made a schedule change, with the departure time now 2 hours earlier than originally scheduled when I bought the tickets.

      LGW advertises Connect Service, where they will check your bag through to your destination for you, rather than having to queue up again at bag drop. Will this save me any time? Will it save me enough time to be able to still clear customs and go through security again to connect to the Westjet flight in 2 hours and 20 mins?

      If not, then my only option is probably to change the YYZ departure flight to the next day? The Easyjet flight is the first one to land in the morning and Westjet only has one departure each day, so choices are very limited.

      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.

Now we are getting dropped off at Sophia Gardens and I am a bit worried as my coach bus from London arrives at 2:20 in the morning. 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)? I thought I picked the best hotel as it was right next to the station so I am a bit upset - but thankful I realized this now and not at 2 in the morning on the side of the road!

Not sure if this is an Irish question or a Welsh question... as I also need to know which would be the best train to London. But I also need to know what is the easiest way for a foot passenger - will be either taking train or bus to ferry terminal... and then train to London - so which would be handiest, or most scenic.

      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!
