Thread: Uk Travel

  1. #1
    My employer is suggesting that I cross the Atlantic.

    If an American were to vistit the Uk, is there anything he should be aware of to protect his safety?

    Would an American accent in certain places be dangerous?

    In other words, if someone were coming to the UK, what advice would you give?
    Aren't we in the trust tree, thingey?

    RF,

    In 1993, I spent 2 weeks in London, I understand the climate, I was just wondering about the response of locals to an obvious American.

    When I was in France, they were rude little turds.

    Generally the British people, like the American people, dont give a stuff about world politics; its the person they look at.

    Unless of course, your planning on doing a SWAT at a Mosque or something

    I certainly have never heard of any "racism" towards Americans...

    Most places of interest are full of foreigners anyway so you would go unnoticed. I lived in Cambridge for a while and Chester for a few years and there would be at least 30 different nationalities in the city centre at any one time (including many americans). I have probably appeared on hundreds of holiday photos when doing my shopping in the background. One time I was in London adn was trying to ask for directions adn it wasn&#39;t until the 5th person that they spoke english.
    My wife&#39;s from another country and was nervous about living here but was amazed by the multinational society we have.
    Enjoy your trip and follow the Lonely planet guide book or something like it.

    Recommendations:
    London
    Cornwall (only in the summer)
    Bath
    Cambridge
    Chester
    Manchester
    and long winding roads through the countryside.

    As far as anywhere unsafe?.........As in any city in the world there are rougth parts to each one but - why would you go to that part of town (and they arn&#39;t so bad anyway)?
