Granta Place, Mill Lane, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire CB2 1RS
Punting in Cambridge is an amazing experience. Be sure to take a few beers to take in the sights with. Most trips run for about an hour and you shouldn't pay more than £10 per person. A lot of Cambridge students are guides and are extremly good value with their local knowedge and banter. Punts are available for personal hire but I wouldn't reccomend it for first timers! I have seen some disaster cases in my time. Don't forget your camera.
43 Oxford Castle, Oxford, Oxfordshire OX1 1AY
The Oxford Castle which is older than ten centuries old is the hearbeat of Oxford University. Previously a Royal Castle serving the Thames Valley, the castle has a real old school vibe attached to it. Being a tourist hotspot food, drink and entrance fees tend to be expensive... The Castle has lots to offer in the form of art, history, dining and shopping. The Oxford Castle is Oxford's Eiffel Tower and must be seen!
139 Cowgate, city centre, Edinburgh, Scotland EH1 1JS
The Three Sisters is a notorius pub in the heart of Edinburgh's party street, Cowgate. Its unique feature is its large screen TV in the outdoor area. In the summer it is a brilliant place to watch sport and have a few drinks. The one downside is its price increase as the day progress's... Very scaley. The staff can be a bit un-professional at times and at the best of times the toilets are a disgrace. Worth a pint or five without a doubt though!
Murrayfield, Edinburgh, Scotland EH12 5PJ
Murrayfield is a world famous stadium... Hearing the Scottish rugby side sing "Flower of Scotland" can bring a tear to grown men. The facilities are brilliant although food and drink can be expensive and lines are always a problem. Nevertheless it is an awsome stadium with a great atmosphere. The public transport around the stadium is efficient and cheap (compared to other UK cities). The anuall IRB Sevens Tournament at Murrayfield is a good laugh, worth going to.
65-74 St. Marys Street, Cardiff, Wales CF10 1FA
Europe's biggest Walkabout! 10 minute walk from the famous Millenium Stadium making it the perfect pre & post drinking hole for sporting fans. Walkabouts are known for attracting a Southern Hemisphere crowd, this is ideal as Saffas, Kiwis and Ozzies love the odd party! Drinks flow all night and hot food is available as well. This "Walkie" has the biggest screen in Cardiff, random but true. If you a regular Walkabout customer elsewhere and you in Cardiff its definately worth a look at...
9-13 George Street, Oxford, Oxfordshire OX1 2AU
Copa is a really cool bar in the centre of Oxfords clubbing/entertainment area. With 13 international biers on show, it fails to dissapoint many people. Unlike many of Oxford's "posh" bars this one tends to be well priced considering they import a lot of their beer and wine. I have attended a private party here before and it was extremly well planned with finger foods and other quality entertainment. A good place for a business lunch! The music selection tends to be very mutral which is nice. Go try some foreign beer.
Knightsbridge, London SW1X 7LY
Forget open bus top tours, forget walking tours where you pay the guide and forget spending precious time getting lost around London. New London Tours is a revolation! A free walking tour taking you to the best sights in London in 3 hours, there is no catch, it is absolutly free. But by the end of the tour I garantee you that you will want to tip the guide (not that you have to). If you going to London or are planning some sightseeing don't look further than this tour. A MUST.
28 Tooley Street, Southwark, London SE1 2SZ
The London Dungeon is a fantastic place... I have been to various other dungeons (Edinburgh & Amsterdam) and this one is definatly the best! Without a doubt. It takes you through Londons "dark" history eg. Jack the Ripper. They throw in some scary rides as well. I went as a brave youngster and was scared at times. It could well scare some adults. A good experience that takes just over an hour to complete.
Bury Street, Abingdon, Oxfordshire OX14 3QT
Abingdon's version of Subway! A hidden gem in the main shopping centre/area. What would look like a dodgey take-out joint from the outside is actually a very decent fast food store. I would highly reccomend the Abingdon School Special. It is simply the best baguette I have ever tasted... hands down. A combination of bacon, chicken and stuffing... WOW. The meal deal they offer is value for money (Baguette, packet of Crisps and a drink). When you go there at lunchtime you will see and smell what the fuss is about!
Marylebone Road Marylebone Road, Marylebone, London W1U 6NS
I will never forget going to Madum Tussaud's as a 10 year old and thinking the first few wax models were real! Whoever the artists are, they have done some outstandingly good impressions. In photographs it is sometimes hard to believe that the various celebrities are wax models! It is an awsome place for both adults and kids. An afternoon can be spent at this attraction easily... Tickets are pricely but unlike many of Londons attractions, this is good value! Don't forget your camera.
