2 weeks in London - ? days in York

by robin888


thank you everyone for your input regarding London and York. I am wondering if two days and 3 nights in York is enough for me and then I will continue my trip to Edinburgh and Glasglow. thanks

A lot depends on how much time you want to spend "exploring" the city. I stayed at a little B&B just out of town but within (my idea of) walking distance.

The Shambles is not to be missed nor a climb to the top of the Cathedral. I've not been in a number of years, but there are some great pubs to be visited. I stayed a couple days multiple times on my way from London to Edinburgh.

Also, if you have time and the inclination the theatre typically has very good plays going.

Yes I think 2 days in York would be sufficient. It is not a big place and easy to walk around. My York pages cover (I think) everything there is to see.

Don't forget to visit the Minster.

Travel Tips for London

Planning your time in London

by CatherineReichardt

(work in progress)
Maybe I'm biased, but I really don't think that you need to do a guided tour in London except if you are on a really tight itinerary. There is lots of tourist information available - sometimes too much, which can be confusing - but once you've got your A-Z (streetfinder) and have got the hang of the public transport system, you'll find it far more rewarding and cost effective to do it yourself. If you doubt that you have the confidence to put together an itinerary, then why not find some itineraries offered by tour operators whose focus appeals to you and then duplicate this yourself at a fraction of the cost?
For those who are not used to planning itineraries for large cities for themselves, I would suggest that the key is to be realistic in what you're trying to see. There is no better way to spoil a trip than to micromanage every last minute and get so obsessed to keeping up with your unrealistic itinerary that you don't have time to enjoy what you are seeing. Much of the attraction of historic cities such as London is to appreciate the sense of place/history/antiquity, and this is something that requires both time and peace of mind. Unless you're planning to stay in London a month or more, you might as well accept that you won't see it properly in one visit, and anyway, even if you did, by the end of that time, you'd probably have long since got past the point of sensory overload.
Another good tip is to try and aim for diversity in your schedule. Although similar types of attractions tend to be grouped in certain geographical areas (for example, museums in South Kensington, Wren churches in the City, shopping along Oxford Street), after a few hours on a particular theme, you'll be all 'museumed/churched/shopped out' and will need a mental break. A change is as good as a rest, so I would advise you to intersperse museum visits with a stroll in the park, shopping with a theatre performance and so forth.
Just be aware that even Central London is a large and diverse area, so it's best to plan your trip so that you can tackle bite-sized chunks - for example, Kensington one day, Westminster/Whitehall the next. This approach is not only good for your health because you get to exercise - particularly important if you're doing longhaul flights - but also allows to you explore on foot (always the best way to get to know a city).

One must see Parks, palaces,...

by seabrez00

One must see Parks, palaces, shopping, theatre, do alot of walking, and definitly a ride on a double decker bus, on the top decker (somtimes they offer tours on the double deckerbuses). Here is a picture of a double decker bus. Having dinner on a boat and meeting a man in the parliment.

The British Museum

by basbed23

The British Museum can be found near the Holborn Underground Station. Some of the permenant exibits include Egyptian Mummies, Greek and Roman Statues and a large library. The museum is free of charge, although you have to pay for audio tours.

The Millennium Bridge (2)

by alucas

The design was complicated by two major requirements – the bridge needed be high enough to allow ships to pass under it, yet low enough not to interrupt views of St Paul’s Cathedral. The solution was a streamlined shallow suspension bridge, with the cables running alongside the deck rather than above it.

Waiter behaviour

by joits

In the states, the waiters are pretty attentive. In very good restaurants, the waiters will usually pass by your table every few minutes to check on you.

In England, they take your order, bring your food and they pretty much leave you alone. I didn't eat in any expensive or fancy restaurants, but in the few restaurants I did eat in, during the meal, I didn't really get to see much of the waiters.

That's great because sometimes you can have a conversation without being interrupted. But its not great if you run out of water or you need something else and you have to call on your waiter.

Also, when it comes to bringing the bill, in the US, they bring it as soon as they get the last plate. I've noticed in the UK, they sort of wait on you until you ask for it.

This may not be the case for all restaurants, its just something I noticed when I was there...
