Websites / e-mail newsletters for the UK?
 
Hi there,<BR>Last year I visited Paris and found loads of great information through websites lovingly put together by expats in France - e.g. www.parisinsites.com, www.secretsofparis.com, www.bparis.com &amp; www.metropoleparis.com.<BR>Now I’m planning a trip to the UK and my question is are there any similar resources for the UK (London in particular)??<BR>I have tried web searches but get only hotel sites and 'tourist board' type information. I'm looking for something a little more in depth and personal.<BR>Many thanks for any suggestions!

Firefly,<BR>Try these for a start:<BR><BR>www.londontown.com<BR>www.timeout.com (click London)<BR><BR>But there are a lot more and I am sure others will add their favourites.

Great suggestions - thank you!<BR>Time Out and London Town are great for specifics, but aboutbritain.com is exactly the kind of thing I'm looking for - a bit of inspiration to help me choose what to do!<BR>Please keep the links coming - thanks!

Hello Firefly,<BR>The British Tourist Authority has a site geared for Americans( but could be of interest to others also) who are traveling to Britain. www.travelbritain.org<BR>

You might also want to try the forums at delphi.com. There are lots of message boards with ex-pats and just general travel advice.
