    Useful websites

    Post by JAS on Thu Sep 10, 2009 11:02 am

    Hey there all
    Thought I’d put together a list of some websites that might come in useful for anyone planning to visit us Poms (I‘ll add to the list as I find more). I don’t work in tourism but if anyone wants help tracking down information, either general or specific, then I’d be happy to try and help so feel free to give me a shout.

    Firstly your own Government site here in the UK. They have travel advice for Aussies visiting the UK and obviously a useful one to have if things go wrong.

    http://www.australia.org.uk/

    Now the official tourist board websites for the UK.

    http://www.visitbritain.com.au/

    http://www.visitscotland.com/

    http://www.nitb.com/
    (This one’s Northern Ireland btw)

    http://www.discoverireland.ie/

    http://www.visitwales.co.uk/

    …a few for the major cities…

    Thanks for the info JAS. My wife and I went to the UK in 2004 and thoroughly enjoyed it. We hope to get over there again as there are plenty of places we would love to visit and also go back again to some of the places we've already been to.
