You may want to reach out to the respective regional groups and get in touch with them directly. ePlaya isn't really designed to be a cheap travel/travel tips site.

Find the best Scotch eggs and mushy peas. May require the assistance of great quantities of ale.

If not claustrophobic, I can't recommend the Greenwich foot tunnel under the Thames highly enough. Links the Isle of Dogs with the Royal Observatory. Good spot to board a tour boat back upriver.

Ha, and this is why we don't reply to spammers, because once they are banned, you;re talking to the ether.

Whatever you do don't refer to Dublin as being in the U.K, it's the Republic of Ireland :wink: Other than that always be prepared for weather changes and intense hangovers.
