London and away

by trav4bus

Hi Vters,

A week ago my left small toe(baby finger) got fracture,now its getting better, My whole business meeting in Korea and Thailland are distubed.Anyway its fate or nature's will.

So the whole plan is Changed, All time busy in work never get a chance to see the Uk, now I will take two weeks break from work. I want to see scenery and sea.I am not interested in visiting museums .

I will travel by Car or train.
My first destination will be Cornwall,I will stay there for minmum 3 days.

please tell me about more destinations about maximum 6 hours away from london to see Sun, sand water and greenery.

Cheers
Tim

Six hours away from London - depends on how you are travelling. Perhaps the Border country of Scotland. Or Wales. Northumberland. Cumbria. Yorkshire Coast. Sand, water and greenery are pretty reliable, the sun is not.

I would spend more time in Cornwall - have a look at my St Ives page and you'll see why! :))) St Ives is a great base for discovering wonderful Porthcurno Beach by the Minack Theatre (looks like Portugal rather than England) and the rest of the Penwith Peninsula. Apart from that, you can go to Looe, Fowey and Polperro when you are down there.

Being in the Southwest, you could also see Devon - both the north and south coasts are wonderful with places like Dawlish with its red rocks in the south, and the famous beaches of the north coast around Ilfracombe.

Lyme Regis is another place I like with lots of fossils on the beaches, and daytrips to the Jurassic Coast and Dorchester in one direction and Sidmouth in the other.

If instead you want to go north, Whitby would be my favourite, with the moors around the corner, but the North Sea is less spectacular than the Atlantic and the weather cooler usually,

Hi Tim, sorry to hear about your toe! you could travel along the south coast taking in places like Portsmouth, Southampton and Brighton. You can visit the beach there but I can't guarantee sunshine! I agree with the suggestion on Scotland, if you wanted to travel by plane it's only around an hour's flight time from London and the scenery is spectacular up there.

Thanks Claire, I will consider your suggestion too.

Travel Tips for London

"ini namanya ......"

by ukirsari

i was only kid ... 9 to 10 years old whenever travel around with my parents and visit charming-but-busy london, long long time ago. so, became my dad's "duty" to show us around [yes, he was stay in netherland before and fly to england if there's long weekend available]. "ini namanya ..." [this is ....] and "itu adalah ..." [that is ....]. one of my fave in his explaination was "pergantian pengawal kerajaan". exchanging the guardians in front of buckingham, where i take picture with my first [mini] camera :)
and from now on, how nice to have someone who visit london regularly and keep inform me about the things i love from this city. he's my beloved one who live nearby.

BBC's Bush House

by grandmaR

Someone who has never been to London should definitely take a bus tour. We took the Big Bus, and I can recommend it. It gave us an orientation and overview of the city in a relatively short period of time (a bit more than 24 hours) that we could not have gotten in any other way. Also the top of the bus is windowless, so you don't have to cope with reflections

The only problem with such a tour (other than the weather if it is raining) is that you can take a lot of photos in a very short period of time, and may not remember what the thing pictured is. Particularly if, as in this case, it isn't a building which is in most guidebooks.

There are no tours of this facility, which is why it isn't in guidebooks. Domestic BBC programming comes from Broadcasting House in another part of the city, and tours of that facility are available.

I do not know what the guide said which led me to take the picture, but I absolutely couldn't figure out what it was of. So one of my fondest memories is of M.K. (Martin), the VTer who identified the location for me as Bush house

It is between Australia House and India House in Westminster, London. This photograph is taken from the Big Bus on the Aldwych Circle side. The inscription above the columns reads, "Friendship Between English-Speaking Peoples." The World Service does broadcast in English, but also in 42 other languages as well.

From 1940 to 2008 (when the lease expires), Bush House has been/will be the home of the BBC World Service (originally called the Empire Service) and BBCi. American businessman Irving T Bush planned the building, and the first part was finished in 1928. In 1929, Bush House was declared 'the most expensive building in the world', at a cost of $10,000,000.

According to the website, "The centre block opened in 1923, and boasts marble walls and floors. Portland stone was used to build it, the floors were made of Indian Hardwood, and the foyers all have Travertine marble on the floor. The foyers are heated by radiators set inside the stone walls, with grilles letting the warm air through into the rooms."

"The main entrance ..[has] two statues... symbolise[ing] Great Britain and America, they each hold a flaming torch and a shield which have the British lion and the American eagle on them. In between the statues is an altar embossed with a Celtic cross."

In 1930, when The Strand was excavated for the east wing, a Carrara marble head of a grim visaged Roman man was unearthed. The slightly damaged head now sits in the Centre Block reception.

In June 1944 a bomb landed outside Bush House. Three staff were severely injured, and one of the statues lost an arm. Thirty years later, an American businessman who worked for the Indiana Limestone Company was visiting his daughter in London and saw that the arm was missing. He persuaded his employers to send a replacement, and a stonemason to attach it.

Take a walk around The City

by vichatherly

A visit to the financial "City of London" is worthwhile.
It shows you London at work and at play. The architecture is great, plenty of nooks and crannies leading to wine bars and book shops.
Just get off at either Bank, Moorgate or Liverpool Street underground stations and take a walk around.
You can also visit the Bank of England musuem.

Swiss Re - otherwise known as The Gherkin

by alucas

This tower in the CIty of London has just won Britain's most prestigious architecture prize - the RIBA Stirling Prize. The award was anounced live on Channel 4 television on Saturday October 16 th 2004.

This picture was taken late afternoon on 19th October as I happened to pass by.

The correct name of the building is 30 St Mary Axe (the address), but the client who commissioned the building was Swiss Re, hence the Swiss Re Tower, and you can guess why it's called The Gherkin - amongst other things.

Unfortunately it's not open to the public.

Address: - 30 St Mary Axe

Stroll along the Thames

by sue_stone

When the weather fines up Londoners want to get outside and enjoy it while it lasts.

What better way to enjoy a summers evening than taking a stroll along the Thames River.

We took a leisurely walk......along with many other people......along the Thames path near Kew Bridge.

We saw plenty of ducks and a gorgeous sunset!
