    What would be the preferable stops heading to London from Edinburgh?

    Go to York, there is a cool street there with crooked buildings, also go to the museum that is near the hill with the little castle on it. I wouldn't bother with Leeds as its just a big city, however there are some nice places not to far away from Leeds (Bingley - you can see the 5 locks in the canal, there are some markets at Keighley, the Yorkshire dales etc). The lakes district is also very nice if the train goes near there. about 10 years ago

    What are the best things to see/do in and around Darwin?

    I just came back from a week in Darwin (and surrounds). Don't underestimate the distance you will need to travel. I went on a two day tour to Kakadu and we travelled around 1000km. I recommend going on a tour to Kakadu (though 3 days would be better than 2) as there is a lot of distance to travel, and at least if someone else is driving you can snooze on the bus and won't be tried out by the time you get there - to see most of the good stuff you need a 4WD vehicle (I was on a 4WD bus). On the way out to Kakadu things to see are Corroborree Billabong (highly recommend booking a 1/2 or full day barramundi fishing trip for there) and jumping crocodiles cruises on the river. Once you get there, Jim Jim falls, Twin falls are good. But there is so much terrain that its hard to know where to go - best to have a guide. Litchfield I'd suggest driving yourself though - the all the tours just seem to take you to the jumping crocs in the morning and Litchfield in the afternoon - but they only take you the places to swim in Litchfield really. The places we went swimming in Kakadu were far more spectacular than Litchfield (and less crowded). Don't even attempt Litchfield on a weekend - it'll be packed. Arround Darwin the Mindil Beach markets are good (Thursday & Sunday nights). almost 10 years ago
