Hey you Brits! I'm coming to the UK

Where should I go, what should I see? I will only be there for a few days over a weekend in early December. Should I bring my guns with me?

Hartlepool.

Verdigris - 14 Nov 2014 20:55:49 (#2 of 1471)

Scunthorpe.

Tenesmus - 14 Nov 2014 20:56:02 (#3 of 1471)

First time?

London, obviously, but make sure you visit the other big cities of England, Dublin and Glasgow. Be sure to tell the locals how happy you are to be in England and how much you love their city and the English.

Try Mince Pies with sherry. Or mulled wine.

Visit Santa in Harrods, then enjoy a relaxing toast beef lunch in the top floor restaurant (if its still there).

I won't be able to get to Dublin or Glasgow. We will be outside of London, so a trip there is planned. Yes, this is my first visit. I was supposed to come over this summer for an event, but it didn't work out. My husband will be there two weeks for a conference, so I'm coming for a long weekend.

Do you know what they call the Quarter Pounder with Cheese in England?

Brunothecat - 14 Nov 2014 21:14:27 (#9 of 1471)

Buckingham Palace of course, visit your rightful sovereign and reflect on the misfortune of history which gave you leadership by rascals who are in trade.

Tenesmus - 14 Nov 2014 21:16:17 (#10 of 1471)

Go to a McDonalds so you can confirm your suspicions that we really can't do customer service.

QuaintIrene - 14 Nov 2014 21:16:51 (#11 of 1471)

Don't forget to test the wonderful echo in the British Library's reading room.

MonsoonBloom - 14 Nov 2014 21:16:52 (#12 of 1471)

I'd recommend a literary tour of the south east. Slough. Reading. Southampton.

Where should I go, what should I see?

Where are you staying? Or do you envisage "doing" the entire country in about two days as it's "so little"?

Should I bring my guns with me?

You're contemplating a summer safari break but mixing us up with South Africa, aren't you. Try turning the map 'upside down'.

Lascar - 14 Nov 2014 21:20:44 (#14 of 1471)

Definitely bring your guns. The border staff really appreciate a bit of banter about shooting the Queen, also.

FluffyKitten - 14 Nov 2014 21:21:37 (#15 of 1471)

how much will you take to keep her?

Tenesmus - 14 Nov 2014 21:22:46 (#16 of 1471)

Try the traditional English drinks Stella Artois and Kronenbourg.

SquirePraggerstope - 14 Nov 2014 21:23:45 (#17 of 1471)

how much will you take to keep her?

You're not rich eanough

AshburtonAbove - 14 Nov 2014 21:26:41 (#18 of 1471)

There is a Ronald Reagan statue around the houses of Parliament somewhere. . . .

You could go to London Zoo. I have always wanted to go there.

LucyVanPelt - 14 Nov 2014 21:27:12 (#19 of 1471)

Run away everyone. You don't want her telling you how vastly superior the US is over all that European socialism.

LucyVanPelt - 14 Nov 2014 21:28:38 (#20 of 1471)

and do bring a gun, maybe they will lock your ass up. We won't miss you on this side of the Atlantic.
