    Need a nice hotel, hostel near St. Pancras, London. Any suggestion?

    Hi, I recommend: a) Clink 261 Hostel (Ashlee House) - www.ashleehouse.co.uk - prices from £14.00 per person per night - closest backpacker hostel to Kings Cross St Pancras, London's most well-connected tube station and now home to the Eurostar. Staying at Ashlee house, you'll find yourself within walking distance of the most popular tourist attractions in London such as the British Museum, Oxford Street, Convent Garden, Madame Tussauds and the fabulous Regent's Park b) Generator hostel London - www.generatorhostels.com - close to Russell Square or c) YHA hostels (http://www.yha.org.uk/hostel/london-st-pancras or http://www.yha.org.uk/hostel/london-central). Find more hostels / hotels here: http://www.mintytrips.co.uk/accommodation_london.html. Enjoy London, Jacob about 7 years ago

    Suggest me some cool place in London?

    Hi, I would also recommend Camden (great night life and weekend markets). Try vegetarian restaurant inSpiral (http://www.inspiralled.net/cuisine). Personally, I am not a vegetarian, but this resto is really special and food is great. Another area I like is around Angel tube station. It's packed with great clubs and restaurants. And you must visit Sunday Spitalfields Market (fashion, food, vintage). Here is more info about the Spitalfields and other London markets: http://www.mintytrips.co.uk/london_markets_guide.html. If you get to Sunday market have a lunch in one of the famous Indian restaurants at Brick Lane. I think the best restaurant there is Tayyabs (http://www.tayyabs.co.uk).

    Any suggestions for a great weekend trip from London?

    Hi, last year we walked from Weymouth to Swanage via Lulworth Cove (Dorset). We did it in 3 days, but it can be done as a weekend trip aswell. It's beautiful down there. Highlights :) - World Heritage Jurassic Coast. Impressive Old Harry Rocks, Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door. Superb cliff top coastal walk of The South West Coast Path National Trail. Relax in Studland Bay - miles of white sand backed by sand dunes. Boat trip along Impressive Old Harry Rocks. Great seafood :) Check my photos: https://picasaweb.google.com/101114789248574649486/DorsetSWEnglandJihozapadniAnglieJurassicCoastCorfeCastleLulworthCoveDurdleDoor02 Enjoy your weekend, Jacob (walking in Dorset: http://www.mintytrips.co.uk/dorset_jurassic_coast.html) about 7 years ago

    Which Mountain in Snowdonia is best to explore, other than Snowdon itself?

    Hi Jonik, Last year, me and my girlfried, we did a 5 day trek in Snowdonia. We love it there, we have been there many times before. But last year we did something different. Everyday we hiked a different mountain and then we slept in a different hostel. It was one of my best trek ever. Apart Snowdon we hiked Glyder Fâch (photo: https://picasaweb.google.com/101114789248574649486/SnowdoniaNationalParkSnowdonNorthWalesSeverniWales#5602615008286824754), Devil's Kitchen and relaxed by the Idwal lake. I have put together details of our trek on my walking website (here is the link http://www.mintytrips.co.uk/north_wales_snowdonia.html). Hope you will find it useful. Enjoy Snowdonia :) Jacob about 7 years ago
