    Just need an advice: what would you suggest to visit in this country? Have been here for week and will be for another three.
    Liverpool is a good place (visited) - beatiful with magnificent temples in old style, and one (catholic) looks modern.
    Next day we will be heading to London for two days, then plan to visit Manchester, maybe Chester, Birmingham - your advices will be appreciated.

    Stonehenge

    Bath, (aptly named)

    Windsor Castle, (take the tour if possible)

    If you happen to go thru Maidenhead, say hi to my ex-girlfriend. ( Unless she died of old age by now)

    Also, you should be vigilant and take precautions in public places, avoid crowded areas and use extra caution during religious holidays and at large events.

    Not wanting to be negative but..... better be careful when travelling to Eurabia.

    If using an ATM, especially near touristy spots, make sure there is not a card-swiper on the machine. If you see any glue or puddy around the part you put your card into or can tug on it and it comes off, run like hell.

    Go to York.

    It's one of the top tourist places in England amongst the English but few foreigners go there.

    It's awesome.

    Stratford is really nice.

    Go to Oxford or Cambridge if you like university towns.

    Ask some of our English posters.

    Despite the expectations i have not seen many arabic people here. Saw some Indians, others look like true englishmen (a lot of ginger and freckles).
