winter travel

Traveling to UK in end of January or first of Febuary. Where would be more inside warm activities? What about stonehenge that time of year? I'm from Florida so don't want to be a frozen popcycle when I return.

That's a very vague question. Generally... er... indoor activities are more common in towns. Eg London, Oxford, or wherever takes your fancy. . My favourite such activities include sitting in a pub with a pint of real ale (that's our 'warm' beer.. not really warm, but merely cool). I digress. What things are you interested in? Some tourist attractions may be closed over the winter. You really need to give us a bit more to go on. Swimming in the public baths in Cardiff might be warm, but unless you tell us whether you like swimming and intend going to Wales, it doesn't help much.

I quess that was VERY vague. My husband is on buisness travel and I am trying to decide whether to meet him in Glasco or London for a few days. Love to do the tourist things, shop, good eats/drinks. I have been to London a couple of times but did not venture outside of town. So I was thinking of more surronding areas if I go to London. Have not been to Glasco but was in Edinburg which I loved but lots of outside activities. I love being outside and walking but not when it is too cold.ALso love theatre and musuems.

Lots of shops in Glasgow. Museums (free) theatres restaurants pubs. Just like any city really.

Plenty to see and do. But not always warm.

If keeping warm is really such a priority then, other than the away end at Gillingham, I can think of few worse places than Stonehenge in late January.

But as is often said, there is no such thing as the wrong weather, only the wrong clothes. One of the great delights of our country is its four distinct seasons. Each has its virtues - and there is little better than a long walk on a cold, clear day.

You can do "hot" for the rest of your life in Florida. My advice is to wrap up and enjoy it here !
