salad of pre-trip questions: arrival day, HP tour, wellies.

Jump to last reply

Whee, getting really excited for my July/August UK trip which is ALMOST here, finally! I had a few little straggly questions I wanted to toss out to the experts... Maybe bad form to throw this salad of questions in together, but they're so tiny on their own, so here goes:

- I'll be tramping around Skye, the Lake District, the Cotswolds, etc. Not crazypants for me to be planning to wear my rainboots for this, right? Or will I be the only yahoo gadding about in Wellies?

- Arrival day, if plane is on time, I should have a 10+ hour window between Gatwick arrival and 21:00 train from Euston to Fort William. (Left big buffer to allow for flight delays). During this time block I plan to (1) purchase nice road atlas for drive portions of my trip (which begin following day, driving FTW to Skye) and (2) obtain/install/activate a UK SIM card in my unlocked AT&T Samsung phone. Can I find good bookshops/phone stores near Euston for these tasks? (I.e., allowing me to stash my pack first!)
Other suggested good uses for this time? Popping up in the London Eye? Catching a double-decker bus for some sedentary sightseeing? Brain won't likely be too sharp on day one, after all.

- Similar question for departure day. Unsure about dropping the money on it, but am *considering* booking Harry Potter tour for that day. Will be checking out of London accomm near Victoria Station; leaving Gatwick on 18:20 flight.
9:30am HP tour should allow me to spend several hours there yet arrive comfortably to Gatwick by 4pm, no?

Many thanks!!
