    I learned a bit about some of these famous monuments from the history channel on TV. Quite a place to be there and savor the actual culture and traditions. Nice job.

    I found your page searching how to go from London to York and felt attracted by the whole page. It is really interesting and helpful, with a lot of pics. Thanks for sharing.

    I couldn't get the L19 fare for this trip but still L22.30 isn't that bad. Going back to see everything I didn't see on the first visit!
