For the little buddy's English version of the private house - I must have played like this when I went back the first time2017-08-23 20:06:39 638 ℃
Britain is still my destination of choice for travel
A few years ago, I have a vacation ran out, imperceptibly also went to several continents, more than a dozen countries and countless City, some of which are said to be very proud of the rare, but the British for me has always been a special. Studying abroad for a year, and then travel two times, and I can not say that the British contact time is very long, but the experience is still there. Now you ask me where I want to go, and it's still my first choice.
I like the clouds in england. They are always low and low enough to walk into your heart. When I first arrived in England, I was fascinated by a big white cloud in the sky. I looked at them on the bus to school. I felt very calm. I didn't feel like I was in a strange environment. Whether it is blue sky, white clouds, or cloudy clouds overcast, there are people moving heart. Without the background of the sky, I think the color of England will be lost.
I like the streets in britain. Here is a super high level artist, big show, and after receiving the change after passersby nodded; there is a serious work, they would later appear in the face like next to the bar, holding a beer and friends to chat in the doorway; there was the type of man, whether suits the trend or movement, to pay attention to the details of the instrument so that they own conditions become less important.
I like museums in britain. The variety of its kind, the content of the rich, and the management of norms, so that I believe that no culture of people in the country after returning, still maintain the passion to visit the Museum of the matter.
I remember meeting in the suburbs of a small town, a few gray haired elderly in the management of the textile museum. Where the daily master than the guests, do the old wizard even joked only individual child will often come here for long or even so it's house lizard, but each one exhibits, each review professional and meticulous. We were also invited to drink the afternoon tea made by grandma, and all the intentions are free. While I was away, I bought some small souvenirs to show my thanks, but I took away a lot of emotion. So even if you are not interested in museums, you may as well look for two intentions, feel the exhibits, and appreciate the culture of the museum itself.
The old man holding the dead house lizard in the hall told us that only children play here
There is no denying that this preference has something to do with experience, but more because of Britain itself. From the city to the people, most of them have a cool appearance and interesting heart. Whether it's a millennium or a century old castle, retro or avant-garde, you can always feel a sense of pride and easiness that comes with it, and you can find meaningful and smiling details. In it, you always want to know more because of more understanding.
The keywords are thousands, everyone's eyes are not the same, this article is to give each other with my buddy, so must not only guide complete kit, hope to use their own vernacular and feelings, the first to go to England buddy more readable and practical reference.
Tips for a small partner's 14 day trip
Take off the round-trip flight time, the guy probably has 14 days to play, and that's what I think is the first time to go to britain.
For the first time to Britain, it was a great treasure trove of exploration. From England, Welsh, Scotland to Northern Ireland, each has its own customs, and even the features of each city are different. I really recommend friends who have time to understand every part of it, but for short-term travel, from the geographical and other considerations, or to England and Scotland based.
In addition to believe that very clear passengers, most people, such as my buddy, to travel demand is the not too tired, not only for the punch and the fly, can in the first two conditions, with as much harvest -- then routing becomes very important.14 days trip, I suggest this arrangement:
London (2 days), Cambridge (1 days), bass (1 days), Liverpool (1 days), Glasgow (1 days), the highlands (sky Island) (2 days), the highlands (Inverness) (1 days), St Andrews (1 days), Edinburgh (2 days), London (1 day), Bicester (optional Oxford) (1 days), London
The reason for choosing these places is their representative, are complementary, can let you see the different sides of Britain; second, from the route is the most smooth, almost no return; third, went to England greatly small places, they are my true love.
Small partner's ticket for London round-trip, and as a shopping strategy said, finally must go shopping in London, so take both ends is taken for granted. The whole route from south to North and return to the south, shopping places are put at the end, and so will be the last to go to bicester.
Go because the city, each journey by train and plane when the gap is small, so that the train (except on sky Island, behind), because it can appreciate the scenery along the road, which is also an important way to understand english. The return from Scotland to London suggests a direct return from Edinburgh to London. On the one hand, it can save five hours. On the other hand, the fare of long distance trains is much more expensive than air tickets.
The time in brackets is approximate, and some of them are a little longer on the road, so please be flexible. Oxford is also the day to live in London bisite, while expensive but save huge baggage handling at the end.
By the way, you will find that Scotland is not a small proportion, it is because it is really beautiful in my mind. Let's talk about it later.
Train ticket purchase: https://www.thetrainline.com/, this is the most commonly used ticketing website in Britain. I think it's better than any other one. If the arrangement is confirmed, it will be more observation fares, tickets as early as possible will be much cheaper, and sometimes even very exaggerated.
Ticket purchase: https://www.skyscanner.net, this is a relatively international web site, you can choose different countries, languages and currencies, very easy to use, save time and money.
The first British can not miss the place & highlights
The call was rolled out and reached the time of the stocktaking. Or that sentence, has many large and comprehensive guide, I may not write too much content, here only according to their own feelings tell us about the city and the region can not be missed attractions, some experience is known to everyone, others do not necessarily.
England has many facets, and each side is beautiful
London is the hardest to write because it's too rich and too diverse. People from all over the world gather here, history and modernity, science and art, royalty and the street, sense and propriety...... No matter what you expect to expect, you will receive more feedback than you expected.
Tourist guides always exaggerate all the sights and make people wonder how to make a choice, especially in london. So I'm going to divide the classic tourist attractions into three categories, which make it easy for you to pick and choose (this part will be longer), only in london...... We'd like to see the ones behind and skip it directly. After all, more interesting experiences, we'll say later.
The most scenic spot in London
Westminster Abbey, &, Big Ben, &, Houses of Parliament
WestminsterAbbey & Big Ben & House of Parliament
The most classic London sign, and together, so it's bound to go. But whether to go in and look around, you can easily control:
Big Ben is open only to British permanent residents, so there is no entry.
Houses of Parliament will be open at a specific time, specific to the official website (http://www.parliament.uk/) booking inquiries. Since I saw the debate in the house of Commons about comic dialogue, it has become the place I want to visit most of the time, but I haven't been there yet. I took a look, the small partners just arrived in front of a few days are open, the day is open, so you may as well go in and come back and tell me about ~!
There are many famous cathedrals in England, and they are very rich in historical and architectural features, but they are still different from the famous cathedrals in Italy, France and spain. So my attitude towards the church in England is: just in time, in advance, without reservation, without tickets, or with time. If you are not a church fan, it will be a more flexible option.
Zip code: the Cathedral of SW1P3PA; SW1A 0AA Congress

The direct cause of the queen of England crowd residence and ritual is not it selected the first echelon. More is because from the cathedral to arrive here, only need to walk through the St.James Park (remember to use navigation, to avoid a circle). It was a very good ecological environment with water and many small animals. It was very tiring to walk there and to experience the beauty of British parks.

With the necessary points as the basis, you can use some of the same very worthwhile, but more time-consuming or far away attractions do add.
Trafalgar Square & The National Gallery
Trafalgar Square & National Gallery
Front Gate in The National Gallery on the steps you can look as far as Trafalgar square. The towering monuments and large fountains in the square are beautiful in the clear sky.

V& A Museum
Victoria and Albert Museum
Natural History Museum
There are many museums worth visiting in London, and the collection is huge and spans thousands of years. So the more such places, more reluctant to fly, or to take a look at that time. Both of them are world-famous museums in different fields, and they are free of charge only on one street.
V&: A is the largest decorative Museum in the world, mainly including sculpture, jewelry, furniture, clothing, glassware and so on. It looks a little easier than any other museum, and girls might like it better. It is said that there is a school uniform in our country......
The Museum of natural history from the building itself to the collection are breathtaking, a door into the dinosaur fossils on the knees. You don't think it's boring to visit these things, but you will appreciate their beauty.
It is strongly recommended to understand the museum structure and layout, plan the route and then visit the museum.

Just a few days, it's impossible to see every place. It's no fun just to punch in. Here are some places to come next time.
TATE modern museum, TATE, Morden
Although I love TATE very much. But because it will certainly go to the rear, Liverpool also has TATE Morden, and the route is more convenient, so the London put one, also put ok.
Hyde Park Hyde Park
Big, similar to other small parks.

The reason to see part of the cathedral.

Similar places and more.
Royal Observatory Greenwich, Royal Observatory, Greenwich
The place is a little biased, if you're interested in astronomy, marine, you can go.
Sherlock Holmes Museum TheSherlock Holmes Museum:
Not much, rich details, suitable for hardcore fans. The place is independent and the queue waiting time is long. Tickets are 15 pounds.
Shard building The Shard
If you think the three phase of China World Trade Center is particularly interesting, go again.
The experience that London can't miss
London is attractive except for the classic place called "scenic spot", but there are many other things". And these, I think, are more likely to be your deepest memories of london.
Harry, Potter, studio, play
30 kilometers away from London Wolff Ted County, need to take a train. There have been a lot of scenes from Harry Porter. But tickets can only be booked in advance on the official website (www.wbstudiotour.co.uk), 33 pounds for adults.
Arrived in the way: from London Euston train station to the Watford Junction Railway Station, and then take a piece of shuttle car factory
A stroll around Notting Hill
Many people love its movies of the same name. There are shops and coffee shops and bars on both sides, and many Gypsy shops are very interesting and Bohemia has a strong temperament. There are a lot of feature paintings, jewelry, decorations, vintage cameras, antiques and so on. There are lots of interesting things.
Metro: NottingHill Gate
Take a bite at Chinatown
Do not think you are Chinese, you do not have to go to ChinaTown, where you will not only be familiar with the lively atmosphere to embrace, but also to cultural integration, there is a particularly deep feeling. Look at the difference between the locals and the Chinese people who love restaurants. Look at all the famous Asian products in the supermarket, and see the old signs that are often seen in the movies. They are especially interesting.
And China Town, a lot of the food in the hotel is quite standard. You must have missed Chinese food very much, especially after a tour and return to london.
Recommend two Chinatown restaurant: Jinli Street (Sichuan WC2H, 7BL) of old Beijing restaurant (Hot pot, W1D 5QH)
The Chinatown in London is located in the SOHO area, a very central part of the city. The SOHO area is also very lively place, once the red light district is also an infested, a lot of the story place, here is the London black glue disc stores have multiple and all kinds of people shop.
Metro station: Leichester Square
Let's have a look at the stage play
The west end stage plays, from actors, plays, scenery, theatres and history, to the highest standards of the world, with broadway. Here a lot of theatres, each with their own perennial staged repertoire, the play of "the phantom of the opera house, in his" les miserables ", third is" Mamma Mia "...... From the Regent Street to the street, or at China Town, you can walk around and check at the ticket office to see if there are any tickets available. If you have to see, it is best to book in advance on the ticket online.
Booking website: www.ticketmaster.co.uk, www.theatremonkey.comLocation: centered around Picadilly, circus, and Leicester square
RegentStreet & Piccadilly Circus& Liberty
These three places together, the common point is that in the evening under the coordination of professional lighting, much better than during the day. Regent Street extravagance, grand atmosphere, the Liberty department to the bone, PiccadillyCircus is more often seen in various movies.
Metro: Picadilly, circus, and Oxford Circus
Take a ride on the tour bus
Generally I do not want to travel by bus, and always feel too like tourists, not free. But in London, where there is such a place, I think it's a good choice to get to know. Sitting on the two floor, you can see a lot of walking on the road can not see the scenery, it can take you to where you will not deliberately go, invisible to the city to understand more, more comprehensive.
I like walking very much in England, so for London, a big city that relies on transportation, I recommend two routes that you can walk and play well.
Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Parliament, Tel Aviv square, The National Gallery, England
Eat a hearty breakfast in the morning, then went to Buckingham Palace near, can go to Hyde Park or St.James s park around, and then to the time to look at the Buckingham Palace guard guard. After reading through the St.James s Park and having lunch, Jane arrives at Big Ben, Westminster Abbey and parliament, and then continues north, arriving at Tel Aviv square and visiting The National Gallery.
No matter where the play back, can go back to recommend Chinatown, drama and tour in the afternoon half place, although they area is not small, basically walk is interlinked, early to eat first, then is also very perfect.
OK, with the big and beautiful London, you can finally enter a more normal rhythm. In addition to the natural scenery of the Highlands, the cities mentioned below are not large. The attractions are not as large as those in London. They are recommended for walking.
Cambridge may be the most popular tourist city in Britain, more than in London, especially during the summer holidays. But even so, it's still worth it. The whole city is filled with the academic atmosphere, occasionally from the crowd, riding a bicycle, a student or a teacher carrying a messenger bag r-r-ring passing, here are the real masters.
Cambridge can not miss the attractionsThe classic of Cambridge is the University of Cambridge, which blends with the city itself. King's College (King s), the Queen's College (Queen s), Claire (Clare), 31 (Trinity) and Saint John College (St John s) opening, the other is not allowed to enter the visitors. They are all concentrated in the center of the city, walking in it, you will go through the rippling blue river, see the beautiful scenery of the back garden, and then sigh with emotion, if you study hard.
Cambridge can not miss the experience
Kang River by boat
From below through the mathematical bridge, the bridge of sighs 7 elegant bridge, looking at the golden willow river, their reflections on the shimmering waves, the floatingheart growing in the sludge and Cambridge in water, you will really want to sing.In Silver Street or Bridge Street (BridgeStreet) can be found by boat, you can choose to hold a long row, you can take guided tours by the river. You will often see young people from all over the world they rowed card in one place, with a university, that is another beautiful.
As a souvenir shop around the world's most famous university, how can you shake your brains?. I can't say that every souvenir shop is fun, but to dig it out can definitely find a unique souvenir with a little smart.
Bath has the name of a bathhouse, but it is the most beautiful and noble city in my heart, England. Similarly, the ancient city of Rome, York and bath two, I prefer the latter. York has a strong sense of politics, but bath is more romantic. Bard's streets are all big stones built, the whole city is not big, walking tour is the most enjoyable and most convenient way, it can be said that the whole city itself is the scenic spots of bath.
Scenic spots that bath can not miss
Royal Crescent Museum
No 1, Royal, Crescent
Most tips back to first mentioned bath bath or Rome monastery, but built in the years 1767-1775, Royal Crescent is my deepest impression, magnificent, intoxicating curve. In front of the large lawn, you can eat a simple meal, but also play a good place to take pictures. The Crescent Museum is located at No. 1, new moon tower. It displays many precious cultural relics and portraits, reflecting the life of the aristocratic family at that time.Address: BA1 2LRBath The Roman Baths, ancient Rome

At Sally Lunn 's tea room, have a snack and drink tea
Sallu Lunn 's has the most authentic Brazil round buns, fluffy, soft and soft. Served with butter and tea, very delicious, delicious, I went to bath that day for two consecutive meals. It's one of the oldest buildings in bath. Eating snacks, drinking tea, looking out of the old window, you really feel like you're crossing. If there's anything to eat in the whole UK, I think it's it! By the way, it's good to order the most basic round bread, and the rest is far from him.

* I don't recommend going to Stonehenge next to bath. Basically spend most of the time, but also to stand in a relatively distant place to watch, there may be no picture to see clearly.
Also a representative of the modern industrial city of England. I recommend Liverpool to Liverpool, Manchester and Bermingham. Because there is no busy street and classical architecture, but everywhere is the label of modern culture. Whether you're a Beatles or a Liverpool football fan, the cultural atmosphere here will soak you up, not to mention the other half of the other half are Liverpool fans.
Liverpool can not miss the attractions
It used to be one of the most important ports in the Atlantic, England, and has now been transformed into a large tourist port and cultural center. Other attractions that can not be missed are also around it.

It's here to bring everyone back to the Beatles, and the Beatles' stories and legends are here. Beside the souvenir shop is also a good place to go there to love music friends buy a paddle or mug, he must be very love. Remember that the Starbucks next to the Beatles, too, might as well feel it. Tickets are around 15 pounds for adults.

Tate Liverpool Museum
Remember when I said the time was short, could London's TATE MODERN be released first? That is because Liverpool has a branch, and you must go through. The TATE is next to the port of Albert, and it is within walking distance. If it wasn't for modern art, it would be a good idea to look at it in Liverpool. Free, individual exhibition may be paid separately.

Liverpool can not miss the experience
Anfield Aneld Stadium sees a ball
Whether it's a fan or not, it can be an unforgettable experience to watch the ball in a football culture in Liverpool. Anfield is the home of the Liverpool team, the atmosphere is not good, and there is a big souvenir shop. For the hardcore fans, the wallet may not be guaranteed. However, Liverpool tickets hard to get a vote, we still have to recount.

Bicester village & Oxford
Bicester Village & Oxford
Haruki has said a Bicester, Oxford beside it, downtown every half an hour to go to the bus to Bicester, half an hour. Although it is also full of tourists coming from the University, the city of Oxford is much more primitive than Cambridge, but the business atmosphere will be heavier, and it can be completed by walking. In fact, it is not my most recommended place to go, but in view of Bicester and so near, if you get tired, or fighting to end early, but also good to see.
Scotland is really beautiful
There are so many places in the world that I haven't been to yet, but I want to go to England again and again, 70% because of Scotland. Someone said "Scotland is a place to be remembered will fall into a reverie, I can't agree with the clouds: roaring waves, in the lowlands of Edinburgh, Glasgow and other big city has a medieval castle, melodious bagpipes, strong whisky; in the highlands of natural scenery with mountains, lakes and magnificent desolation the sea, the black sheep and all over the mountains and Plains high sun and clouds change unpredictably, it's beautiful and grand and let you completely surrender gladdening the heart and refreshing the mind. Some people say that when you don't want to know a thing, go to a place different from the present climate, the answer will come naturally. Scotland is the answer itself.
"You never know what kind of scenery you'll see next."." This chicken soup is perfectly realistic in Scotland. The same landscape, the last minute and the next minute, may be completely different because of the light. Always shock, always moved, let you quiet, also let you throb, can not linger. So, since you have come, you must try to play through, or you will regret it.
Glasgow is the first stop of Scotland in this trip, and it is also the largest and most modern city in Scotland. It is called the most exquisite Vitoria city in Britain. There are many museums and galleries, and it is also a shopping center in Scotland. It takes more than three hours to get there by train from Liverpool, so it's basically noon. For half a day, you can choose to go to a museum of interest, or go to the famous University of Glasgow, or you can go to Prince's Square to buy some snacks and warm clothes. Because then you will enter the Scottish Highlands, where possible to buy things not so convenient.
The significance of Glasgow, one is feeling during the period of Vitoria British building appearance; on the other hand is for the next big journey to Scotland to do a dressing over, after all, has three consecutive days before the conversion of the city. All the churches and museums I didn't feel too much, the tour guide is very rich, I will not say.
The highlands (sky island & Inverness)
The heights are the real highlight of my journey to Scotland and even the whole of england. Although for the Chinese people, the highlands are not famous in Switzerland and other places, but many people have come to think that this is the most beautiful scenery in europe. Without the highest mountain, without the largest lake, the highland has a strong force and beauty, one day, such as the climate of the four seasons, unpredictable clouds, but also let it more magical colors. Do you remember the mountain bridge that was blown by the little red train in Harry Porter? It's right here. Although I haven't spent much time in the Highlands, I have been deeply shocked by the beauty here, and determined to experience it again. (so the picture was taken by me from the ins.)
Sky island Isle of Skye
The sky island is called the nearest place to the sky. You can imagine the clouds are within reach. In the words of LP, even if your days on the island are always associated with the clouds, you will feel the charm of the sky island. The original and pure, like a distant fam, is in the heart of home, this is the sky island gives people the feeling of complex. With the same calm and Sweden at the same latitude, but anchaoxiongyong, beautiful and can not be replaced.

The sky Island North Island (OldMan of Storr old stone), Scotland (KiltRock), skirt rock cliff island Jiangkou Reservoir trail (FairyPools), Dunvegan Castle (DunveganCastle), but in this environment, what the attraction is not important at all. In addition to the island's scenery, the iconic colors of the house and the beautiful port, the island capital of Portree, itself is also a place to linger around, and here is also the base of the island.

As of Glasgow, our intercity transportation is all trains. But into the sky Island, the first car rental self driving, because there is no train on the island, this is the most simple and direct way. If you don't want to drive, you can choose to take Citylink bus from Glasgow about 6 hours to portree (official website enquiry schedule: http://www.citylink.co.uk). Or direct a short tour group from Glasgow. Or take the train from Glasgow through Fort William to Mallaig, and then by boat across the sea to sky island port Amadei M (Armadale Ferry Terminal). Don't think it's a waste of time. From the moment you get on the bus, the beautiful scenery will unfold. The scenery along the way itself is the most important scenic spot".
Traffic on the island is the same, the best car rental, driving stop and go, you can also take the island bus, or join the island on a day mission. However, the bus only 4 classes a day, to go to the above said attractions, not necessarily every one, we must ask the driver to find out. On the island of a group information related to each hotel can ask, but it is best to plan the itinerary, it is better to send mail or telephone contact book. * on the island bus tickets, it is recommended to buy SkyeDayrider, directly to the driver to buy, you can, 8.25 pounds on the island all the public can sit.
Inverness is the capital of the Highlands, but also the UK's north of the city, although there is the famous Loch Ness across them, but the lake itself is not what special, but also will not see the monster here more ~ to transit, can take the train or bus to the next station, St Andrews.
St Andrews St. Andrews
St Andrews is not a well-known tourist city, but I highly recommend. This is a small to only three streets of the town, ten minutes walk, the sea on three sides. The University of St Andrews is the oldest university in Scotland, is Prince William and Kate a place. The periphery is the sea and the cliff, inside is exquisite streets and families window flowers. Can a town like this go by?
St Andrews attraction not to be missed
Hang in St Andrews are generally able to swim around, but I still want to recommend the St Andrews cathedral and St Andrews castle. The biggest difference between them and the other Castle churches is that they are broken. Silhouetted against the sky in Scotland, listening to the waves beat the cliff voice, standing on the Millennium Building ruins and a large tombstone, this feeling does not often, I still did not forget.
St Andrews is in the northeast of Edinburgh, about one hour by car. You can think of it as a stop point from the highlands to Edinburgh.
The famous Edinburgh, but I don't think its reputation is good enough for itself. This is a heart stirring City, full of medieval buildings, both extensive and elegant. Walking in it, you will feel that "Harry Porter" is not born here, but also where?. Edinburgh has a strong cultural atmosphere, and many experiences are related to it.
Edinburgh can not miss the attractions
Carleton Hill is the commanding point and the best viewing area of Edinburgh. It takes about ten minutes to climb from the foot of the mountain. At sunrise and sunset, tourists gather here, and you can see the whole city and the sea far away, covered with gold under all levels of gold, not so beautiful.Zip code: EH75AA
Edinburgh Castle is the absolute spiritual symbol and cultural heritage of Scotland in the past 200 years. It sits on the top of a 120 meter high dead volcano granite, overlooking the city and reflecting centuries of vicissitudes. Adult tickets are 16 pounds. It usually takes more than two hours to stroll down.
From Edinburgh Castle down the road is the Royal Mile Road (RoyalMile), personally feel that this street alone is no special features, there are many restaurants and cashmere products shop.

Little tips about Britain
Although English food is often treated as a dark food, can it not be learned and introduced? There are a lot of local restaurants or specialty stores on the guidebook. I recommend some chain restaurants with good taste, which are common and safe choices. Hungry, walk tired, see them, rest assured to go in.
It's a chain restaurant dealing mainly with roast chicken from Portugal, with the signature peri-peri roast chicken with mashed potatoes (CreamyMash) and grilled sweet corn (GrilledCorn), particularly fragrant! Its grilled chicken is more in line with Chinese tastes, the cost performance is relatively high, is the common memory of many students, so that some people come back to imitate the shop...... But within Asia, there is only singapore.
Pret a Manger
A very common local sandwich shop in england. The name 'PR', by French t Manger ", meaning" immediate consumption". It's fresh, you can buy a sandwich crayfish ~ in addition to soup, wrap, sushi, croissants, muffins etc.. Stroll tired, do not want to eat a big meal, you can buy a sandwich, sit on the lawn, as a local people ~!
A pizza chain restaurant in Italy with good taste, environment and price.
The pizza chain has a shop in Sanlitun, but it tastes good. High prices.
The UK has many Japanese restaurants, Wasabi is one of the more delicious sushi and the main chain, can be found in the rice and vegetable roll, many commercial street.
Paella, the largest chain of Spanish restaurants in the UK, is good and tasty.
The hamburger brand in the United States has more than 1000 stores around the world. It's hamburger is with foil packaging, is to make the juicy beef and cheese blend. Think about drooling?
They are not chains in themselves, but the average level of tea restaurants in Britain is good.
Be sure to try some snacks
The best eating doughnuts are beauty and strength. With it, I don't know. How can Dunkin Donuts, an American brand, survive?. The impression in the train stations have to sell, choose a lot, directly spell a cassette on the train, watching the scenery while eating, stay beautiful!
Tyrrells potato chips
They say the English are potato children's papers...... This is not false at all. Potato chips can be eaten by other people. Tyrrells is known as the British specialty, the quality of potato hand-made, taste a lot of choice, and most importantly, the packaging is beautiful, very retro! There are some imported supermarkets in China, but the feeling of eating in English Street is definitely different.
M ller yogurt
I love the school, a box is divided into yogurt and feed two parts, after opening, the small material part of the yogurt to break, you can mix to eat. The taste is excellent. By the way, it also has a rice pudding. It's also very interesting and delicious.
All kinds of English cookie, I think they are delicious, soft and moderate. This fresh baked dish is very delicious.
The weather in England is unpredictable, and shorts and down coats are often seen in the streets. In October Britain is relatively cold, especially in the highlands. So be prepared for a windproof, warm coat, and it will solve the problem even if it is waterproof. If you don't want to take your luggage, you must buy it before you get into the highlands. Scarf shawl is a good choice, can be concave shape, but also when the blanket.
Besides, a pair of thick soled shoes is very necessary. Although the British cities are mostly small, it is still very tiring to walk every day, especially on the big stone road in the ancient city.
1. make good use of the postcode. Again, the zip code is very important in the UK. It is a 5~7 bit code consisting of letters and numbers. There are some recommendations in front of me, and I also have tagging. Many attractions known as near the subway, but down is not on, and most have to walk five to ten minutes, pay attention to use navigation. Just enter the zip code on the Google map directly, and you can get exact address navigation to building. In Britain, it's basically a bend, a small street, a pile of places, and that's a basic survival skill.
2., pay attention to the opening hours of scenic spots. In addition to London's shopping malls, most British shops and attractions closed at five or six p.m., earlier on the weekend. Weekend or Monday, often shops rest, small cities more often have private shops, open or not, depending on the mood. Where you want to go, you must arrange it first.
3. take the train, be careful not to ride past the station, this is serious. Because the conductor is fast and has a heavy accent, it is simply normal to hear the station name. Therefore, it is better to check in advance the order of the preceding station and the estimated time of arrival, and pay close attention to the bus stop when the train is slowing down.
4., if you do not reserve seats, on the train, you can find a free seat. The reserved seat will have a LCD screen to show which seat is booked during the trip and do not take up.
5. many shop assistants really check credit card signatures and try not to write too much grass.
6. to Scotland can bring their own garbage bags, there is no trash in the wilderness.
7. when driving or taking a taxi, all the people in the car should wear a seat belt or they will be fined.
1., the British don't talk about thank you, "says cheers.".
2., whether in the kitchen or bathroom, Britain is mostly cold and hot water separated from the two taps. No matter how small the toilet is, toilet paper is available.
3., the ground floor of the UK is LowerGround Floor, the first floor is GroundFloor, the two floor is 1st Floor, and the third floor is 2nd Floor.
4.10 in England, it's getting dark at 6, and Scotland is earlier.
5., Scots don't like people asking them "Areyou English". You can ask, "Are youBritish?"".
6., Scotland accent go farther northwest, the best moment to prepare a written address clear note.
7. "at the most basic level, the unspoken rule of all English conversation is to avoid being overly careful.". Seriousness is acceptable; solemn silence is forbidden; sincerity is permitted; excessive attention is forbidden." Kate Fox, British writer
After two weeks of trouble, the British part was finally brought to an end. But in the short term, I will not write travel notes or Raiders, really tired. In fact, a British buy buy buy I want to tell you some tips on the tour after a few real friends that I can put the British shopping split into several articles written, or tired and dirty. My lips say yes, but I don't really care. Because this article for writing people, from the beginning, there is no price to speak of. The reason why I would like to bother to write out, in fact, four points for small partners, six points for myself.
Through the article, stroking the memory, always feel incomplete writing, expression is also messy, photos are also various periods, all kinds of equipment, the level is not neat. But it may not be able to express those, it will really translate into the hearts of the most profound memory of it. Only these words, do not live up to that still miss the years.
