I defy anyone to get through check-in/customs/security etc at a major airport in that time frame. And in my experience getting from the plane to the immigration hall is at least a ten minute walk....

I stayed in Bath two weeks ago - at the Queensberry Hotel. I know Bath very well and it's busy for most of the year, definitely peaking in July-August. But the tourist hordes stick mainly to the...

We loved the Manor House! We stayed last night for just one night. Castle Combe gets quite few tourists but it's not a tourist trap. The hotel stands in gorgeous grounds and is a lovely building. We...
