    • 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

      Best restaurants in Nottingham, near City of Caves

      Nottingham Dec 5, 2016 at 7:18 AM

      Hi!
      I'm planning a trip to Nottingham where I will show my friends the sandstone beauty, the City of Caves. Since we may spend there a lot of time, I need some recommendations on good cafes/restaurants/pubs near this attraction to have a dinner at. Where would you go? =) The cuisine doesn't matter, but the distance does (it should be near the City of Caves). I've found a list of restaurants at alltheviews.com/restaurants-... but still can't decide on a place to visit. Is Ibérico World Tapas really great?

    • Is this a good place to celebrate birthday in London?

      London Dec 5, 2016 at 4:23 AM

      Hi all,
      I'm new here and I hope you can help me with advice:
      Being studying various restaurant comparing sites (Tripadvisor, Michelin, Alltheviews...), I decided to try out Ye Olde Mitre Yelp and Tripadvisor estimate it pretty high (as I can judge from alltheviews.com/Ye-Olde-Mitr...), but I want a real person opinionб who has been there recently. I forgot to mention the reason - why I'm choosing a place to go out: we want to celebrate my father's bithday and he likes bars a lot. So, we need one with a good atmosphere.

      So, is Ye Olde Mitre a good place to go to for a celebration?

      Bachelorette Party?!

      Swansea Jul 20, 2007 at 9:15 AM

      Hello,

      My daughter is getting married in early August in a town called Llanddowror, the home town of her fiance. She thinks it's going to be only her father and I going. We are from the US and have never been to Wales.

      She has no idea yet, but I have arranged for 4 of her best friends to surprise her and meet us there!!

      The problem? We want to have a fun bachelorette party, but I have NO idea what to plan or where we might go for some action. We would like to be in a bar or club with lots of people.

      Is Swansea the best place? How far away is it from Llanddowror?

      The other problem? It's going to have to take place on the first MONDAY night in August! Not the best night of the week for a party - but it has to be that way.

      Can anyone give me some ideas of where to go? Thanks so much!

      Swansea and Cardiff

      West Glamorgan Apr 7, 2007 at 10:35 AM

      Dear all,

      I will be staying at Swansea for three days for a conference and I already checked the local Wales tourism sites for activities.

      I am planning to go to the National Waterfront Museum and the National Museum as well as sightseeing at the city centre (castle-ruins-,churches,shops,etc).

      Since I will be doing this in one morning because I have to attend (and present a paper) on the afternoon, I have to go back to the conference.

      On the second day I was planning to skip it and go to Cardiff. It is one hour by bus, I checked, and I plan to see the National Museum as well.

      Would you have more advice on any special cultural item I don't know about?

      I already checked buses and those lovely trains that take too long for my schedule so, don't bother telling me about them because I will have no time.

      I mean, any museum collection that is smaller and doesnt appear on tourism sites or a castle that is pretty close to go from Cardiff or Swansea?

      Any input is valuable. Thanks.
