need advice

by tranceperent

Hi members, need a small help from you guys.
my brother is visiting UK from the 17th -24th
he is arriving on 16th in London, there after he plans to go to south Scotland, with a cousin and her family. i think they plan a road trip. my brothers 2 kids are 5 and 3 year old boys.
could you please suggest places to see during their visit. thanks a lot

Re: need advice

Hi Manish
what a challenge you pose ! So much depends on the length of time allowed for that road trip and any preferences for visits. For example, would it be better to aim for stops exploring the great outdoors or will it better to head for museums and castles? Would the cousin have some thoughts ? Presume you mean the cousins family of two boys. Boys like to get out and about and not sit in cars. Grown ups like getting lost looking at maps.

I am with Puerto on this. Do you mean things to do in London, things to do on the road between London and Scotland, things to do in Southern Scotland? Give us a bit more info and I will be glad to try and assist.

fergy.

Re: need advice

by tranceperent

i think things to do in south scotland is what my brother is looking at.
the counsin sister and her husband have their daughter who is 2 year old.
yes i would like to know something to do in london too.

Lots of excellent ideas for things to do in London with small children here;

http://www.visitlondon.com/people/family/

and here:

http://www.londonnet.co.uk/ln/out/ent/kids.html

and other sites as well if you google 'london kids'.

I'd recommend a visit to the Natural History Museum for the dinosaurs and other animals (free) http://www.nhm.ac.uk/

and to the British Museum for the Egyptian mummies (etc, also free):

http://www.britishmuseum.org/

and to the Science Museum for lots of buttons to push and levers to pull (free):

http://www.sciencemuseum.org.uk/

There are also lots of parks and playgrounds for them to explore, including the Diana Memorial Playground in Kenisington Gardens:

http://www.royalparks.org.uk/parks/kensington_gardens/diana_playground.cfm

Make sure your brother takes the to Horseguards to see (and touch) the guardsmen on their horses, and maybe to see the Changing of the Guard too:

South Scotland is a huge area, and so it is more-or-less impssible to give specific ideas (with young children one does not want to be travelliung klong disstances every day). Can you be more specific about where your brother intends to base himself and his family?

Re: need advice

by tranceperent

he is just planning to drive to the south of scotland. not specific, if there is anything interesting let me know.
he is planning to stop over in few places to explore.
any suggestions welcome

Travel Tips for London

Go to the Tower Of London,...

by kellygirl200

Go to the Tower Of London, Tower Bridge, musicals, Covent Gardens, Picadally Circus, Leicester Square, & so much more. You must go to Harrods and you must ride the 'Tube'! London is fabulous! I miss the culture the most and the accents. London was great. I just miss almost everything about England.

We actually took one of those...

by lindsayb25

We actually took one of those Big Red Bus tours because we only had 2 days, and London is packed full of stuff to see. If you get an early enough start, it's totally worth it. Plus, it comes in a million different languages. Unlike some cities, the different routes were all included in the one price! You also get a free boat ride and choice of walking tours! If you're short on time, but want to see all, I would recommend it. Especially if you get a funny tour guide-which we did on our last trip...so fun!

British Airways Millenium London Eye

by kris-t

The British Airways London Eye, sometimes called the Millennium Wheel is the first-built and largest observation wheel in the world, and has been since its opening at the end of 1999.

It stands 135 metres (443 feet) high on the western end of Jubilee Gardens, on the South Bank of the River Thames in Lambeth, between Westminster and Hungerford Bridges. It is adjacent to London's County Hall, and stands opposite the offices of the Ministry of Defence situated in Westminster which it overlooks to the west. If you would like to get tickets - better to order its on web-site 7-10 days before a visit

Pub etiquette

by toonsarah

Sooner or later on a trip to London you are likely to find yourself in a pub – or you certainly should do if you want to experience one of the great British traditions. I thought it would be helpful to provide some tips on how to fit in like a local.

Firstly, you need to know that you have to go to the bar to order your drinks. Pease don’t sit at a table and wait to be served – you’ll get very thirsty and frustrated!

Secondly, you will have to pay for your drinks as you order them, unlike the European system of keeping a tab and adding it all up at the end of the evening. The exception to this are the smarter “gastro-pubs” where the emphasis is more on eating and where you may be asked if you’d like to put the drinks on a tab to pay with the food bill at the end of your meal.

If you’re with a group of people, it’s common practice to buy drinks in rounds. Each person takes it in turns to buy a round of drinks for the whole group. There’s a lot of etiquette attached to this that it would be impossible for you to pick up in a short visit, but there are a few important points to note. The last round is often the cheapest as by then some people will be drinking half pints or soft drinks, so it’s considered very bad form to be always the last person to offer to buy a round. But if someone in the group is drinking only soft drinks (e.g. a designated driver), it would be polite to suggest they don’t buy a round when they offer, as it makes for an expensive way to buy a few glasses of orange juice!

In a large group it’s unlikely that everyone will get a turn to buy a round. There are a number of alternatives. You might split into several smaller groups for the purposes of buying drinks (this often happens naturally as you approach the bar). You might propose a kitty, with everyone putting an agreed sum into this at the start of the evening and sharing out any leftovers at the end (and again, remember the non-drinker – perhaps he or she could put in half the amount that drinkers contribute). Or if you drink together regularly, buying rounds is probably OK as anyone who doesn’t buy one can start the process next time!

By the way, it isn’t usual to tip the staff in a pub, but if you visit regularly or spend a whole evening there and get good service, you can offer to buy the person serving you a drink – “would you like one yourself?” is the usual query. Don’t be offended if they pocket the money for later though – they can’t have too many when they’re supposed to be working!

So now you have your drinks, what else do you need to know? Well, firstly, since July 2007 it has been illegal to smoke in an enclosed public space in England (hooray!), so if you want to light up you’ll need to go outside. You could take your drink with you or if friends are staying inside leave it with them – an unclaimed drink is likely to be cleared away by bar staff. In most pubs you can buy food to go with your drink – this might be anything from a bag of peanuts to a gourmet treat, but traditional dishes include pies, fish and chips or a “ploughman’s lunch” (bread, cheese and pickles). Unlike drinks, groups of friends would normally each buy their own meal, and to do this you’ll again have to order at the bar. You’ll probably be given some sort of number or other sign to put on your table so the server can bring the meal to the right table.

There may be entertainment in the pub – live music, sport on TV or maybe a quiz. Choose your pub according to whether you want to participate in something like this or not – if you really want to talk with your friends, a pub without entertainment will be better.

Despite the British reputation for reserve, someone in the pub on their own is likely to be willing to engage in conversation, and the same may apply to groups of people. Try saying hello and take it from there, but bear in mind that they may have come to talk privately together, so be sensitive to the body language and move on if people don’t want to chat.

And lastly – have fun :)

A few important things

by J.I.M

The best shoes to walk around in London would be soft, well-padded trainers that won't give you blisters. I wouldn't recommend sandals! I recommend you have an umbrella or some kind of water-protective clothing, no matter what time of the year as it can rain at any moment. I remember in 2004 the first fourteen days of July we had rain every single day! In JULY!
