Your Advice please about travelling London & Scotland inc. Sightseeing!

I am visiting London for three weeks from 4th of October till 27th of October to reunite my sister up there and of course for a holiday too.

I need your advice on any sightseeings or travel to any other good places in England and Scotland because i am working on my budget.

Feel free to make some suggestions or two.

Thanks guys for reading this. Cheers Brett

P.S I CAN'T WAIT!!!!! hehehe

Rest In Peace, Elena Baltacha

Check out cheap flights between London and Scotland with ryan air, easyjet and the other low budget airlines - you can get some obscenely cheap fares . Scotland is terrific - if I were you I'd spend disproportionately more time up there than in London

Patiently waiting to join the silver surfers

Hope u have a good time

I have never been to Scotland but I've been to London many times. You have to visit The Tower of London, Madame Tussauds and the British Museum because they're a must see
Also the London Eye is great, it's goes around slowly and you can see good views of London and all the sights from above. It's pretty close to Buckingham Palace and Big Ben too and it's right next to the Themes.
You should go on a bus tour that goes non-stop through the streets coz u go past all the big attractions like the Tower Bridge and all the places on the Monopoly board And it's good to experience going on a red double decker bus in the pouring rain

The Tate. It is one of the most glorious art museums you will ever see. It is probably my favorite of all the ones I've visited.

The West End for theatre. And it's fun to knock around at the market in Covent Garden.

I agree that the British Museum is a must, but you probably won't be able to see more than a few sections of it; it is huge. And I think St. Paul's is a must-see also.

I've never been to Scotland. Only Wales, which is beautiful.

I'd also recommend Wales. Abergavenny and the Black Mountains is lovely with cute little villages like Crickhowell and you also have the Brecons. It is very unspoilt, lots of nice pubs with good food. And you could go to Cardiff which is a great city, small but tons of things to do. As a Londoner myself I don't recommend it if you're on a budget. It is EXPENSIVE and you will just get frustrated if you can't afford to do things. You need a lot of inside info to survive London on a budget, from travelling on the tube (you need an Oyster card otherwise it's £3 for a single in the central zone), to getting cheaper theatre tickets. Ask away if you want!
