amusement parks

by jerrybarach

Does anyone have good suggestions about which amusement park(s) in the greater London area would be the best to take two 12-year-old visitors, in terms of price, value and ease of transportation to and from. We've heard that Alton Towers is very good but that is far from London.

Re: amusement parks

by leics

Yes, Alton Towers is too far from London.

There are theme parks nearer:

Thorpe Park http://www.thorpepark.com/getting-here.php

Chessington World of Adventure http://www.chessington.com/

Legoland Windsor (more suitable for younger children)

http://www.legoland.co.uk/

Adventure Island http://www.adventureisland.co.uk/

All have 'how to get here' pages.

Both Legoland and Chessington World of Adventure have £9 discounts when you there by there by train - see http://www.southwesttrains.co.uk/SWTrains/Destinations/SpecialOffers/

Re: amusement parks

Thorpe Park has opened a new ride this year which they claim is 'the world's most terrifying rollercoaster', with a 'beyond vertical' drop from 100ft. I'm not a fan of rollercoasters, but it might appeal to 12 year olds! (It's not suitable for younger children owing to height restrictions).

how do i get tesco vouchers?

Re: amusement parks

by leics

Unless Tesco has branches offering such vouchers in Israel (or you have faily or friends based in the UK) I suspect you won't be able to get any.

Tesco is a UK supermarket chain.

If you go to Alton Towers, as well as the basic price for the basic rides, you would have to pay extra for the more 'exciting' rides. Also, since these are very popular, people are given time slots and once these are all used up, you may not be able to get the rides you want. I found this out to my cost, by arriving after 11 am with my grandson. It may be a good idea to visit the website to see if you can book in advance to avoid any disappointment, or to arrive at opening time. You don't say when you intend to go, so you should know that in June many schools take their children for outings, so even though the school holidays have not started it can still be very busy.

Hope you have a lovely and avoid any water ride if you want to stay dry!

Travel Tips for London

The next bridge downstream is...

by Pegasus74

The next bridge downstream is London Bridge which isn't gonna fall down anytime now. The original was bought and transported stone by stone to the Arizona desert where it still stands today. The latest incarnation of the bridge is a three-span construction opened in 1972, which spans securely now.

Tower Bridge, the best known Thames span was where I ended my stroll along Thames' south bank. It reflects the Victorian obsession with Gothic architecture. The lowest bridge of all that spans the Thames, it is still raised to allow tall ships through. Today's opening mechanism is electrified as opposed to the original mechanism which uses hydraulic machinery. As dusk gives way to night, the floodlit bridge is especially spectacular as it stands against the night sky of the capital.

Cross the Thames to the north bank here to the Tower of London. This Norman castle was where many famous and notorious prisoners of the Crown met a grisly end. Today it is home to the Crown Jewels.

Xmas customs

by csordila

According to tales the British Father Christmas/Santa Claus arrives through the chimney and creeps out of the fireplace, conceals the gifts into stockings (or sacks), whilst the children are asleep, ready for Christmas Day.
Children write letters to Father Christmas to let him know what they want. Usually they "post" these letters a few weeks before Christmas Day by leaving them in the fireplace for Father Christmas to collect.
Santa has two addresses, Edinburgh and the North Pole. Letters addressed to 'TOYLAND' or 'SNOWLAND' go to Edinburgh, but letters addressed to 'THE NORTH POLE' have to be sent there because there really is such a place!
Santa has flying reindeer and a sleigh and travels all the way from Reindeerland in the Frozen North. So that Santa is kept well fed, children leave him mince pies and something to drink (hopefully a good glass of scotch). Children also leave carrots or apples for the reindeer.

In other countries of Europe this tradition is held on Saint Nicholas Day, many children put a shoe outside the front door on the night of December 5th to December 6th. St. Nicholas fills the shoe with gifts and sweets, and at the same time checks up on the children to see if they were good, polite and helpful the last year. If they were not, they will have a tree branch in their shoes instead.

General packing tips

by goodfish

The smaller, the better. Hotel rooms can be cozy at best and you can end up tripping all over a lot of luggage. Good walking shoes and socks, a light, waterproof coat or jacket, a small backpack and an umbrella. Dress in layers - the temperature can vary during the day. Throw the jacket in the backpack if it warms up. An electrical converter (if you bring a hair dryer, electric razor or digital camera). We like to carry a small travel pack of premoistened towellettes - good for cleaning up hands and wiping your face when it's hot. It even does duty as toilet paper in places where there either isn't any or it's really awful stuff. Film was expensive - throw in a little more than you think you'll need. Keep a small bag in your backpack or purse for any garbage you might end up with. Due to the the possibility of terrorism (namely explosives) you won't find trash cans anywhere near the most historical sites. In fact, even the gift shops couldn't accept any waste. As with most large cities, trash in London is a problem so make like good campers do and pack out what you can't dispose of at the moment.

Bring a small highlighter - they come in handy for marking maps and highlighting guide books.

We bought a plastic, accordian-fold legal letter-sized pouch with sections to store our passports, plane tickets, tube passes. extra cash, and photo-copies of our credit cards and passport IDs in. This kept all the important stuff in one place and was easy to toss into a hotel safe until we needed it.
