    Ideas for locations:

    York - Old and new parts of the city, National Railway Museum (free),

    London - See the previous meet up.

    West Country - Salisbury and the small villages.

    Oxfordshire - Some lovely villages and the historical city itself.

    Whitby - Dracula, Old historic town, Captain Cook, Local for places like National Park inc. North Yorkshire Moors, The Steam Railway, Beach and Seaside etc.

    Anyone else got ideas ?

    I would love to come! I have never been outside of the United States, so I would need a buddy to hold my hand so I do not get lost, but what a perfect time to do it! Let me check on how much airfare, etc is for that time.
    Does anyone know where I would want to fly in to??

    Main Airports in the UK are London Heathrow and London Gatwick.

    Others are Manchester and Stansted.

    Try Virgin for good deals, and BA or United or American Airlines.

    Probably Heathrow or Gatwick would be best, or maybe Manchester if it was further north.

    I'm trying to find out when we are going on holiday as there's loads of family things going on this summer with people arriving from distant shores, but I do believe that first weekend of september is good for me.

    And if it's Oxford, then they'll be setting up for St Giles Fair on the Sunday - although thats pretty late in the day.

    Oh wow! I searched Virgin and it was over $3000, then I searched BA it was $1100, then I did United Airlines and only $878!!! Sooo, now all I have to do is talk my husband into it! It will be right around my birthday so I will just throw that at him and tell him that this would be the most wonderful birthday gift he could ever give me! HAHAHAHA

    I think a really good location for a meet-up would be somewhere central like... oooh... Rutland would be a good choice. Plenty of stuff to photograph, good beer and all the cheese you can stuff down your underwear.

    Rutland?
    That famous Rutland?
    Oh.
    Well.
    Yeah.
    Very cool.

    York would be fantastic, but Rutland would beat that by lengths!
    Go Rutland go! :lol:
