    I live in London, which is in England. London's also the capital of the United Kingdom (and the biggest city in Europe I believe - although a lot of Daily Mail readers don't believe that Great Britain is part of Europe).

    Do you know where in England you will be?

    Yea Baaby, welcome to swinging England, home of stereotypical bad food, bad teeth, red phoneboxes, friendly coppers without guns, pea souper fogs and endless rain.
    Things have changed a bit since Austin Powers left "the scene" some of it for the better. Enjoy your stay and have a nice day.

    Bath's quite nice but small. Very touristy and I imagine it gets very busy on summer weekends. It's about 1.5 hours by train into London from there, but there are lots of things to do around Bath anyway.

    Why not take a quick shower instead, then you'd have more time for sightseeing.





    Sorry.

    By snobs you mean non-Americans?

    BTW, I don't think it's an act.

    Bath is teh bomb. It's beautiful, and the buskers all play Brahms - I'm not even joking. Lots of hills though, in my recollection - fun for getting in shape! I'm in Southampton, which will seem like next door by US standards!

    Bath is hilly indeed. It's nice except for the area around the bus station which is pretty seedy. I understand it's being refurbished soon though.

    My mother (who is English), was quick to give advice for the obnoxious american. Plaid pajama pants, some loud stripey suit jacket, a pink polo, a texas cowboy hat, long hair, a badly kept moustache, and some really 80's sunglasses. Oh, and 3 ancient SLRs strung around my neck. I think that'f make the cut.......
