B&B in South London

by boyfromoz

My wife and I are looking for a B&B with ensuite in the between the city and Brixton close to a tube station for 3 nights in early August. Budget is 50-70 pounds. Any suggestions are appreciated.

Definitely have a look at www.smoothhound.co.uk. This site lists B&Bs all over the UK, and I see they also include London. It looks as if there are some in your price range. The locations are scattered, so you may want to have your Google Map site handy so you can check out where the places are. Vauxhall is close to the Tube for Brixton so that might be a place to look.

maybe think about a premier inn - plain simple but good standards

Travel Tips for London

Well, each time I have been to...

by ecologist

Well, each time I have been to London, I have always come away with the impression of how expensive it is. Understand I am not trying to be negative about it, just realistic. I had a good time and all but I found it too expensive in the long run to facilitate my staying there for any extended period of time.

You should go to the Tower though simply because of its history. the same is true for Westminster Abbey.

Free sits.

by benazer

Take a sit by the side of the road and watch people pass by if you got nothing better to do.

You can also jump on the first bus that comes and find yourself in strange places you did not know existed. When I was young,used to take long walks to save on bus fares and because of this have a good knowledge of many parts of London.

Those famous red Boxes...phone home...

by sourbugger

You can still find significant numbers of the old Red Telephone boxes around London.

They tend to have remained in the more historic and/or touristy areas (e.g there are a couple on Leicester Square) rather than in more utilitarian places such as stations.

If you are into photography then the splash of Red (originally choosen to hide the dirt that accumulates) is often very useful when framing photographs as it seems to help bring out the darker colours you normally get around here.

Although the boxes (of varying design, always prefixed by a 'K' number) were awkward for some people to use, they were always far more aesthetically pleasing than the appauling glass and aluminium carbunkles that British Telecom saw fit to thrust on us from the mid 1980's onwards.

For a much more long-winded, good-quality rant on this topic, check out the following website :

British humour n manners

by alycat

The English sense of humour is very funny and quite childish. The English can laugh at anything, and there are no taboo topics for general conversation. Good natured banter, as long as it isn't wounding, is the most common form of social exchange, apart from talking about the weather, a perennial conversation-opener. The worst thing about the English in general is their total inability to hold their liquor down, they can drink at any occasion, without reason, at any time of the day.

Manners-The ideal of the English gentleman is long dead, though common courtesy is well...common, but Londoners are definitely not . It is assumed that unless you ask or make the first gesture, that you are OK and do not need any help - the English guard their privacy closely, and only really engage when it is quite clear on both sides that this is acceptable. They also have a marked aversion to complaining.

Bring your luggage scale

by windoweb

Weigh your luggage at the hotel before you arrive at the airport. Weight cannot exceed 50 pounds. You will be charged a fee if the weight of the bag is over 50 pounds. Wear comfy clothes for sightseeing. Use plastic zip lock bags for liquid items. Take extra batteries for your digital camera. Bring a raincoat.
