Stonehenge Campsite, Salisbury, Wiltshire. likes · talking about this · were here. Beautiful Multi award winning campsite, 6 romantic. 3 Apr which felt like a treat. We thought our little trip was a success! Next time, we'd really like to visit Bath, and see more of the English countryside. How about you? Have you ever been to Stonehenge or another prehistoric site? Are you fascinated by them like me? Do you think weekend trips are worth the effort.
Or also that day can be used visiting a in-between spot as a day trip.
Trains go from Canterbury West through Ramsgate to Margate. We were booked under the Burnett group, we are so pleased we chose to visit Stonehenge Touring Park. Hampstead Heath ponds for swimming! The lights in the toilet and shower block are in a timer so if you go in the toilet at night alone and sit for too long you're left sitting in the dark until you walk out of the cubicle.
I'm considering putting Bath aside for this year, leaving it for another year, as well as the Cotswolds, Wells, Exeter, Stratford-Upon-Avon? A single day would be enough for Oxford? Or is there another unmissable visit, in Southern England, that I missed so far? Portsmouth is an interesting city to visit, not least because of its historic naval dockyard, but also have a look at Brighton for more of a seaside destination, even if it is a pebble beach!
The Brighton Pavilion is worth a look. If you think you will be back, then maybe do leave Bath and the Cotswolds for a future visit, although if you have 2 days in Oxford, there might be a tour that leaves from there that incorporates Blenheim and some of the Cotswolds. If you're going to Salisbury, you could always take the tourist bus out to Stonehenge as well.
Overall it is a lovely setting for a camp site the facilities were spotlessly clean. West Midlands The heart of England is always a bustling hive of artistic activity. Did they have leisure time? This site does not currently take bookings here on Pitchup.
I certainly think you have plenty to fill your time around this area. It's not a city, but Rye is one of the lovliest and most historic small towns in southern England. In my native language we use the same word for both the only click here, by British standards, would be the capital.
The trick is neither of the two rails stations, Brighton nor Rye, offering a left luggage storage service, so the bags will come along with us for the visit; as we only intend to walk and enjoy the view I think it will be annoying but not a serious problem. Concerning our free day to visit the coastline of Kentwe are considering after reading several posts in the Kent forum, namely by bayB0y two alternative possibilities: After consulting the train schedules, I realised we can do both in one day, in theory as long we start with the cliffs, early in the morning, and cut at least one of the stop overs ; do you think we should try to do this, or should we choose one of the alternatives and drop the other one?

In the UK, the status of "city" is a title awarded by the Crown. Click here, it was used to denote a town which had a cathedral, since a cathedral was the seat of a bishop, and therefore a place of influence; in recent times, some towns have been granted city status without their having a cathedral, purely because of their size and importance Swansea is an example of this but some of the historic cities are actually quite small - Ely for example, and the smallest St.
David's in Wales has a population of only about 1, people; without its cathedral, it would only count as a village. None of which is at all helpful for your trip, unless you planned on taking part in a quiz while you are here!
I knew, just knew, that someone source have to bring up St Davids - which is why I used the word "generally"!!! Of perhaps more assistance to you would be to point out that the Gatwick, BrightonRye, Canterbury thing is just not do-able in an afternoon.
It's simply too much. You can see a lot of Rye in an afternoon, whereas Brighton deserves a day. So go to Rye. But the luggage thing is a problem. I'd ring somewhere reliable like The Ship or the Ypres Castle and book in for lunch on the basis that they'll store your luggage securely for a couple of hours.

Brits would definitely consider Porto a city, and probably some others too. The Queen grants city status to large towns now and again on special occasions such as the Millennium, the next time will be for her Golden Jubliee in The White Cliffs Walk - the most popular route is from the Visitor Centre to St Margarets Bay and back, which will only take a couple of hours at most.
Coastal train tour - you can do this in a loop. Trains go from Canterbury West through Ramsgate to Margate. There are trains from Ramsgate to Faversham where you can change for a train to Canterbury East. Or do it in the opposite direction! If you're not doing the cliff walk, you could always hire bikes from next to Canterbury West station …me. The nicest towns are Broadstairs and Whitstable. Ramsgate has a pretty marina, but the station in Ramsgate is a long walk from it so if you have to link one, it's probably that one.
In Broadstairs, Herne Bay and Whitstable it's about 10 min walk. In Margate it's right by the sea.
Faversham is not on the coast but is worth a look, the station is right by the town centre. If you're doing the cliff walk in the morning, you could get a train from Dover source Deal and Sandwich to Ramsgate.
Deal is a lovely coastal town and Sandwich is very historic, not on the coast but has a riverside quay. The stations here are quite central.

We'll follow your advice and visit Rye alone in our arrival day, leaving Brighton for the departure day we'll be coming by train from Winchester then, heading to Gatwick airport. This topic has been closed to new posts due to inactivity.
