My wife and I decided that we are going to actively start trying to make a baby by next May, and because of that, we've been putting some thought into the future.

Aside from the glaringly obvious fact that I'm knocking her up in what will likely still be a massive economic downturn, one of the things we went over recently was the fact that we would no longer be able to travel overseas for several years.

To compensate for this, we're not only promising ourselves that our children will WORK for their shot at life, (we've already bought the Tiny-Tots™ brand "Infant's First Sewing Machine") but we're trying to squeeze in as much travel as possible, and hopefully leave a good impression in our heads for the decade to come so that we may resume travelling after they're a little older.

To this end, we've decided that we wanted to go to a place where English is the national language, since this makes things so much easier and more relaxing, at least more relaxing than trying to ask for metro directions in Lisbon at 4:30 am.

At the moment, we're looking at seeing Great Britain, as in England, Scotland, and maybe Wales if we have time.

I know that we'll be going to Oxford at some point, since she studied there one year, and we're going to try to stay some place outside of London, to avoid extortionist hotel charges.

As for Scotland, to be completely honest, I have no idea why we're going there, other than she wants to go there just to say she's been there. We'll probably be ending up in the Edinburgh area however, and any advice on things to see or do to make the trip worthwhile would be appreciated.

I'm more interested in seeing some decent art and history museums, maybe some parks, and the countryside, she's more interested in libraries, science museums, and national monuments.

As some of you have seen from a previous camwhore, I've been to England once, and saw some of London, and Stonehenge, but that was it, and I'm open to suggestions.

Like I said, this trip planning just began last night, so we're open to just about anything and anywhere on the island.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now for those of you who read the title and saw NYC mentioned: I'll also be taking my first trip to NYC next week, to spend Thanksgiving with my sister in law in Brooklyn.

My wife says we're going to the Macy's Day Parade, I say I'm not. I'll probably be there, though very drunk or (preferably) high.

Sights to see include various museums, and wherever else I get dragged to. She lives in the area of Prospect Park, and again, for those of you who live there, any advice on something interesting to see or do would be appreciated.

This part made me laugh.
Seriously, teaching kids how to work sets them up to be responsible adults. My kids were expected to take small tasks with the family biz and to work hard at whatever they did. To this day, there is not a slacker among them.

Good luck with starting your family.

Stay away from the North - most of the northerners there can't speak understandable English, especially ones from Newcastle who (judging from a recent visit there) seem to communicate in high pitch yelps and head butts.

I went to Nottingham for New Years and I saw a Pigeon eating sick. That sort of thing on a stonking hangover is enough to turn someone to Jeebus.

And Robin Hood is the greatest hero the world has ever seen. Next to Batman.

That's all I have to say.

"Let's go out in the freezing cold at 8 in the morning so we can get a good spot to watch big floating things and bands go down the street! Doesn't that sound like fun?" People who attend these events are also stupid, meaning the streets are clogged up with people who actually enjoy this kind of thing. Stay in Park Slope and drink Irish coffees.

Thanks orphelia, I might just take you up on that, seeing as how everything is really so close together, and we'll be heading north anyway!

LM, my email is shanek07.at.gmail.com and I'll probably be heading to New Forest, because I definately want to see what old forest looks like there. From the pictures I've seen, it looks pretty similar to the older type hardwood forests in the mid-atlantic states here.

Looks like New forest it is then, being closer to London than Nottingham. Sorry Orphelia, wouldn't mind having free lodging, but it's too far away from everything based on my very quick map check.

Maybe we'll end up that way though, who knows? If it's the case, I'll definately let you know.


Now, who will be the Uber ambassador while I'm in any of the cities, guiding me on which alcoholic beverage is best, and where I can find a bit of hash? I already know Longbow Cider tastes pretty decent, and I've had a good Newcastle, but you guys have a huge variety of alcohol to choose from!

I think there is some old forest, you would have liked where I used to live it was slap in the middle of it just about!
It all depends what you want. If you want touristy, old people cluttered, chocolate box places, go with the suggestions Red etc are making.
Nottingham has it's fair share of tourism with Robin Hood but there are little gems of places I could suggest to you should you choose this way.
And free hospitality!!

I really like Berwick on Tweed, that is up North.

Edinburgh is much nicer than Glasgow.

If you want some easy coastal action from there, go east to East Lothian or north to the East Neuk of Fife.

If you have time, go up the West Coast for some incredible mountain/loch scenery or even across to the islands (they're all on the west, unfortunately.)

But if you're short on time, definitely stick to the Edinburgh area.

And for everyone telling me not to go to Oxford, I have no say in the matter, much like the Macy's Day Parade, my balls are in a vice on that one. She studied there and has fond memories, and promised me I could drink and fuck around while she looked at some huge library there.

Glasgow is full of posers, Irish people, shops, art galleries (though much less impressive than in Edinburgh); lots of parks, the river, and the Barras (knock-off market where everything is two for a pound).

I say this as someone who lives in Glasgow city centre - go to Edinburgh. That's where I go on my days off.

DO NOT go to Wales.



Edinburgh is for tourist. Nice though. A good base to start from. Also the pubic triangle is pretty grim these days. Can’t remember which strip joint it is, but it does a good Sunday lunch. No kidding. It might be the western bar. As the man above says, castle is good, a rip off but good. Spend a day drinking along Rose Street.

Glasgow isn’t that bad. Good for a night out and shopping. A few days are more than enough. Drink buckie. DON’T go to the east end. It’s a shite hole. Not in any way nice. Take in a rangers or Celtic game, not a ranger’s v Celtic game. Go to the west end, ashton lane decent for a meal and a drink. Go to Kelvin grove museum. I think it’s the best in Scotland.

Get over to the islands, mull, Isla, Tiree are all pretty cool but you may struggle in the winter. Arran is ok but pretty touristy.

Remember to head butt strangers at every available opportunity, deep fry every food, try to sell the big issue, swear as a greeting and never ever refer to your arse as your fanny. You’ll get pumped.

If you're going to go to Scotland, you should go to the North of Scotland. It's far superior with much more to see in comparison to the South of Scotland (everything Aberdeen downwards). You'll see some of the most interesting heritage and history you're likely to see anywhere else in the world, beautiful landscapes and countryside, fantastic but somewhat strange little towns, nice pubs and fantastic food.

I would also recommend the west coast and the Highlands.

I really don't see the point in coming to Scotland and going to either Edinburgh or Glasgow. They're cities like any other, no better, no worse. The best of the UK is out in the country, Scotland, Wales, Ireland and Northern England (Northumberland and Co. Durham).

Just some thoughts...

Edinburgh is a nice place to go if you are just popping into Scotland for a little bit - heaps of cool architecture to see, and the national gallery and scot nat. museum are really quite good. Make sure you go for a trek around Arthur's Seat as well - great views over the city.
The castle is overrated.

Oxford is a dump - Cambridge is far nicer.

Bath is also a good place for a tourist to check out - the trains from london to bath are very regular.

Wales is also good - great scenery etc, but it is better if you have a car to get around.

Ireland - you should go here.

London hotels do not have to be expensive - just don't stay in zone 1/2 and you should be able to find a good, less expensive place.

It helps if you calls the Scottish "scotch.' It really puts them at their ease and makes them aware that you are paying attention to them. Also it helps if you talk about all the great Football competitions they have got further than the group stages in. They love that.

Fly into London, see England-
Take train to Scotland, see Scotland,

And from there we're undecided on either going through Wales, which I'm being warned against, or finding a ferry to Ireland.

Shurrup is it. We've got windmills and erm... we're further away from Grimsby.

Though I wouldn't go right now, the place is teeming with cryptozoologists and Bill Oddie types.
The giant Fakenham gillimot-buzzard was spotted over Diss. It flew off with a farmers mawkin.

The county is in uproar.

Grimsby is on the list of shit places you shouldn't visit.


Bill Oddie. I'd happily push him in quicksand and stand on his bearded head while he drowned.

The Lake District is nice. Hilly and whatnot.




If you are going by train in wales, forget it. No point.

The signs are mental mind. Welsh is a fool's language. It has no word for Satellite.

Actually, that's reason #2 she wanted us to go through, because she wanted me to see the signs. I don't think we'll be driving though, probably all rail, as I hear your rail infrastructure is amazing.


Also, she did mention that the ride between England/Scotland would be nice, I think she called it the "Lakelands?" but said we could probably just pop off wherever, and just make a note of when the train comes back through if we wanted to explore a bit.

i liked hadrian's wall and the little roman fort you could walk around literally ON. i like touching the old things instead of just having to stare at them. i especially like being told i'm allowed to touch the old things instead of having security guards tell me to gtfo.

find a hill in the north, enjoy the view.

Cornwall is lovely too.


Much better than Devon.


Cornwall invented pasties, clotted cream and good icecream.





Devon didn't even invent cider.

Scotland is lovely. Why not visit some of the distilleries on the islands? Edinburgh is a beautiful city of course. I'd also recommend some of the more idyllic parts - visit the lochs and whatnot (even Ness if you really fancy it)





While I'm thinking about Loch Ness, shouldn't we just TNT the whole loch to sort the fucker out? If the bloated body of some dinosaur pops to the surface, hooray, if not the scots can finally SHUT THE FUCK UP about it.

You will see plenty of countryside going between Scotland and England. Northumbria is lovely.

Another reason for avoiding Wales: you wanted to go to an English-speaking country.

If you're driving, Wales is lovely. It will rain. Lots. But it will look as green as anywhere you've ever been. The roads are hilarious and the people reasonably friendly.

The only reason Wales was brought up was because of the countryside actually.

It's full of Welsh people, for one thing.

More interesting cities to visit:

York (jorvik and whatnot)

Durham (the cathedral is stunning and it has some nice pubs)

Newcastle is a great city - full of interesting things

Liverpool (if you like being threatened and having your car set on fire)



never Norwich. It's worse than Hull.

--------------------------------------------------
Are these islands located near Edinburgh, and would it be possible to do a day or half-day trip to one? I wouldn't mind learning more about distillation for ermm......historical education purposes.

If you come to Scotland, there are are two places you need to choose from: Edinburgh or Glasgow.

Edinburgh is full of tourists, English people, the Castle, art galleries, parks, places of historical interest and 'the Pubic Triangle' (area where three strip clubs face one another).

Glasgow is full of posers, Irish people, shops, art galleries (though much less impressive than in Edinburgh), lots of parks, the river, and the Barras (knock-off market where everything is two for a pound).

I say this as someone who lives in Glasgow city centre - go to Edinburgh. That's where I go on my days off.

DO NOT go to Wales.

Oxford smells. Bonn Square is full of tramps. The Pitt Rivers is closed so you can't go see the shrunken heads. Basically there is no point going.

You know...

My World of Warcraft character is a level 25 Undead Warlock with a level 8 proficiency in tailoring.

What that basically means is that I can create linen and wool garments from cloth scraps I gather from my kills.

I could put together a nice little slumber suit for your new kiddo. No charge.

Do you not see that she works in a garment factory?!?!?!?! She can CLEARLY make it herself.
