If I were you, I would just stay in London and maybe take day trips out of the city. Go see Bath, Stonehenge or something...

I agree with angela_. A week is barely enough to explore England. Why don't you maximize your stay there with a couple of days out of London but quite closer so that you are not spending most of your time in the travel? maybe visiting Stratford-upon-Avon, Bath and maybe even go further west to Stone Henge and maybe the Goonhilly Satellite Earth Station, if you are interested in telecommunications.

Paris is a great place to visit but 4 days is definitely not enough and you are sure to end up feeling that you have not had enough of either London or Paris. One week for me in Paris and 10 days in South England, a couple of years ago, still left me feeling that I had just had a rushed visit.

Choose Glasgow, because it is the cheapest to get to. Or else toss a coin, if u dont want to decide like that. Tossing a coin is sometiems the only way.

For my personal experience i can tell you ryanair will always be cheaper than easyjet. I flew from Girona (Barcelona) to Frankfurt Hahn for 27 euros round trip, 2 times to Liverpool for around 50 euros round trip and 1 time to paris for around 4 euros round trip - all including the airport taxes.

I LOVED Edinburgh by the way. It's not so much of a big place, you dont really need tot ake trams or buses, its all within walking distance. Stunning city. And has everything big european capitals do have

Hello again

Does anybody know what Glasgow is like?
I dont know much about it, but i get the impression, that it is not the most beautiful city. But maybe i am wrong. As i said, i know nothing, about it.
Anybody got any comments, that would sell Glasgow to me, as a possible destination?

if you dont want to fly...then i recommend yah getting train to edinburgh - scotland and ferry to ireland from holyhead in wales...or just fly, its dirt cheap and checking in is not as bad as others make it out to be...

i check in 30min before my flight, and i land in another country within an hour! sometimes i dont even check in as i can check in ONLINE there for i avoid ques! stress! which also means more time for me to drink at the bar...whamo within 45min i am in another country!

london is big, just depends on what you like...4-5 days and you can do it!

Hello Eits

Reading your post, earlier today, made me realize just how little I know, about Glasgow. I thought it is just full of factories, and pubs.

So, today I did a little reading. It actually seems better than I thought. Apparently, it is now a sophisticated cultural capital, with many beautiful buildings. There is also a huge market, and museums.

One thing I would certainly be interested in seeing, if I go there is the tennament house. Also, a visit to the market would be fun. But there is lots more to do, according to my travel book.

Maybe most people are talking about Edinborough, because that is the capital and so naturally more people would have visited it.
