I have travelled to the UK a number of times for visits lasting between a couple of days to six weeks. Our earlier trips (1974, 1979 and 1981) were primarily in the London area, close to my wife's parents home in Horley - next door to Gatwick Airport.

My wife still has a brother living near London, in Farnham, so we still get to see some of our old "stomping grounds" as well.
