      Best restaurants in Nottingham, near City of Caves

      Nottingham 3 hours ago

      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?

    • Best transportation to Stonehenge and Glastonbury Tor

      London 1 hours ago

      I will be visiting London for 3 days in March. I would like to take a day to visit Stonehenge and Glastonbury Tor (both in the same day).

      I saw there was a tour offered that included them both, but they are only on Fridays, and unfortunately I will not be there at that time.

      What is the best way to travel from London to these two sites? Rail? Bus? Some other way?

      Thank you for any information.

    • 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.

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

      London 6 hours ago

      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?

    • 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).

      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!

      Im visiting London soon. We are a family of 7 , 4 kids 2 x19, 17, 8 and 7. We are staying on tower bridge road. Hopefully visiting London eye, buckingham palace, hyde park, Tower bridge and Tusaudes and hoping to see the sky gardens too.
      Can anyone offer local info on places to eat on tower bridge road. We´ll probablly need to be near the apartment early evening for the younger children.

      Also is transport easy from tower bridge road into the centre ? Is it easy enough to get 2 x cabs to take us into the centre or will we need to get a bus to the local tube station.

      Any info or tips will be muchly appreciated.

      HOW'S MY ITINERARY LOOK NOW

      Worcester Aug 12, 2006 at 2:38 AM

      I WILL BE TRAVELLING TO THE UK IN LATE SEPT WITH MY HUSBAND, HIS MOTHER AND OUR 18 MONTH OLD DAUGHTER. WE ARE SPENDING 5 DAYS IN LONDON AND THEN HIRING A CAR TO EXPLORE FURTHER. A FEW WEEKS AGO I POSTED AN ITINERARY THAT WAS JUST A BIT TOO EXTENSIVE FOR OUR TIME FRAME. MY THOUGHTS ARE NOW TO CUT DOWN ON WHERE WE ARE GOING AND STAYING LONGER IN THOSE PLACES. WE WILL HAVE A TOTAL OF 6 NIGHTS AWAY WITH OUR 7TH NIGHT AT A HOTEL AT HEATHROW AS WE FLY OUT TO PARIS THE NEXT MORNING.

      WE ARE COLLECTING OUR CAR FROM HEATHROW AND WILL BE HEADING TO BATH FOR 2 DAYS.

      AFTER THIS I'M JUST NOT SURE WHERE TO GO NEXT AND MORE IMPORTANTLY WHERE TO STAY NEXT. THE THINGS I WISH TO DO ARE ALL RELATIVELY CLOSE TOGETHER THEY ARE AS FOLLOWS:

      WORCESTER - TO SEE THE PORCELAIN FACTORY
      STRATFORD UPON AVON - CADBURY
      WARWICK - CASTLE
      BOURNVILLE - BLACK MUSEUM

      THE OTHER PLACE IS BURSLEM AT STAFFORDSHIRE WHICH APPARAENTLY IS WHERE THE ROYAL DOULTON VISITORS CENTRE IS! CAN ANYONE CONFIRM THAT THIS IS STILL OPEN? IT APPEARS TO BE FROM THE WEBSITE THAT I FOUND, BUT SOMEONE TOLD ME THAT DOULTON DO NOT MAUNFACTURE ANYTHING IN THE UK AT ALL ANYMORE AND THE WEBSITE SAYS THAT SOME THINGS ARE STILL MADE ON SITE. THIS IS OUT OF THE WAY OF EVERYTHING ELSE.

      I GUESS MY QUESTION IS WHAT ELSE IS THERE AROUND THIS AREA AND WHICH TOWN SHOULD WE STAY IN? I THINK WE SHOULD STAY A MINIMUM OF 2 NIGHTS IN EACH PLACE AS THIS IS THE START OF A 2 MONTH TRIP FOR US AND WE HAVE OUR DAUGHTER TO CONSIDER.

      SHOULD WE HEAD TOWARDS BURSLEM FROM BATH STOPPING AT WORCESTER ON THE WAY AND SEEING THE PORCELAIN FACTORY AND THEN HEAD BACK TO THE OTHER PLACES? OR WILL THIS BE TOO BIG A DRIVE FOR ONE DAY WITH A CHILD?

      THANKS IN ADVANCE AND HI FROM DOWNUNDER

    • Desperately seeking things to do in and around Malvern

      Malvern May 31, 2006 at 9:19 AM

      Hello everyone... I could use some help. I'm getting the feeling that the place where I'm investing 10 days of my precious vacation time may be a backwater. My boyfriend assured me, when we made plans to go there, that besides being a great place to train for his cycling trip in the Alps, it was close to Stratford and all kinds of other interesting things. Now it looks like, without a car, Stratford is inaccessible as a day trip and so is just about everything else I was looking forward to doing. Any suggestions?
