    I was there many times in the air force. I didn't care to much for London but the countryside ws beautiful and the people were great. I loved all the history that your country has.Beautiful place and hope to someday make it back there.

    Been there many times... used to do a lot of business there. First of all I am a big history buff and I enjoy seeing buildings still standing that is older than when our country was discovered. For me I like the UK and it's people a lot. Being in my late 50's I am not fond of how casual our dress and manners or lack there of have become the norm here. Your country has a rich history and speak the King's..or should I say the Queen's english which I find I understand more than anyone under 30 here in the USA.

    We of course always visited London... many times stayed there and traveled by train to visit our business contacts. We actually traveled to Manchester to visit a factory there. We also had a customer up in the lake district.. I think it was Morecambe.....

    Was there in the 90's right after Diana died. Pulled into Portsmouth with the submarine I was on. Took a bus to London and spent a day there. Most of the day was looking around and finding a shop for a t-shirt. Definitely plenty of history, not enough time on the trip to enjoy it. We did go to Scotland for 10 days and the country was beautiful wish I could have had a bike to tool around on. Someday I'll go back, maybe I'll get there with my current job we have people traveling there all the time.:s
