Hi I want to arrange a surprise trip to the UK next year for my OH (Brit who has been in Aust since he was a child). We both love the beach, scuba diving and outdoor activities (4WDing in the Outback etc) and normally spend our holidays either in ASIA, in far north QLD, on tropical islands or in the middle of nowhere with the dingos. I thought it would be nice to do something different in 2012 and am sure my OH would enjoy visiting the area his family came from (see his old house and school etc) but I’m not really sure what to do apart from that. Neither of us is interested in the Royal Family or other typical London tourist attractions but we would be interested in experiencing some of the history the UK has to offer outside London especially if that involved beautiful villages that retain their ‘old world’ charm, ancient churches, castles and stately homes. We would also enjoy some of the walks etc the UK is famous for but I am completely open to suggestions. Neither of us is very interested in Europe so we would be looking at things to do and see in England, Ireland and Scotland. Almost forgot – my OH is an avid Manchester United fan so we couldn’t visit without seeing them play at least once. I’ve done some research on the Internet but would be far more interested in recommendations from locals (those still in the UK) and ex-locals (those now in Aust). Anyway hope you can help with some suggestions. Thanks :notworthy:
ive just had some friends over from oz to visit me in the uk,and they where supprised at how reasonale the cost of things where when i took them to tescos --for the sake of arguement they based there figures on 2 dollars to the pound--i just wundered if any members returning to the uk from australia had any comments on this subject--this is not a oz V uk thing--i just think it may be relevant to people returning to the uk from australia
