Lost City

Recent photos make startling discoveries: lost so-called English "Atlantis" was a big city which competes by size with City of London - one of the biggest areas of modern London.

The medieval Dunwich was of strategic importance for the port of ancient England, but by severe storms in the XIII century the city was literally washed away in a sea of mud and covered the river Dunwich, thereby closing the bay. By XV century Dunwich port lost its importance and for centuries the city was abandoned. Shoreline sea erosion helped capture the ruins of a prisoner.

Dunwich Ruins are located

Yesterday, for example, advised by my Russian friend, I visited the best russian restaurant in London Mari Vanna at: 116 Knightsbridge, London SW1X 7PJ. Say I got a kick, was not enough.

I do not know how foreigners or rather Londoners react to such a climate, but I felt

 London Underground I want to tell a good story about the work of the London Underground.

I was traveling with his daughter from Notting Hill to Sloan Squire. I jumped into the Circle Line train, thinking how lucky I was to catch it with open doors. I even sat on the seat and prepared for the trip, when the woman sitting next to me whispered, " We 're not going anywhere yet because of this girl". Looking back, I saw that on the opposite seats there was lying a sozzled lady. She was reclined in the seat, with bared belly, unsightly exposing

 Buy cheap flights online Recently talked with my cousin: she shared her impressions of her trip to Riga. Since this was the first trip abroad for her family, she went to the agency to apply for a visa and buy tickets. Of course they paid more then if booked all travel by themselves, but as Lisa did not know where to go and what to see, the family lost some cash, which could spend on the trip and buy souvenirs or walk through restaurants. And then it hit me! For me, nothing is easier then to buy a ticket anywhere, I get to the

 England : Manchester Manchester is approximately 3 hours drive from Chatham , where we live. Known for its heavy machinery and super - popular football club Manchester United. I like it there red head player Wayne Rooney !

If you are visiting London and want to go into the city, where trains your favorite team, then I will tell you how you can get there. If you are traveling by car, you can see the route on Google maps (from London to Manchester). To get to Manchester from London need three and a half hours of time (if no traffic jams ), and highways M1 and M6 .

Pre-book your hotel (if you plan to stay in the city center). We stayed at the Premier Inn, a hotel with reasonable prices , comfortable and clean.  there is a network of hotels in UK. They have an interesting proposal, which we have never unfortunately happened to use. If you book online Premier Inn and more than 2 nights , you can pay anywhere from 29 pounds per night. The offers very attractive. Maybe you will be lucky ? Incidentally there is virtually Premier Inn near the club and the stadium where Manchester United has training.

We had to fork out for a Premier Inn in the city center, about 100 pounds per night. But the location is good , you can walk everywhere without fear of driving on unfamiliar streets .
Our goal in Manchester - see our favorite Westlife on their farewell tour. The concert was held at the Manchester Arena near Victoria Station. Walk from our hotel to Victoria in 25 minutes, you can, but we got the tram, buying a ticket there - back right at the stop for 1.5 pounds. The trip took 5 minutes. It was very convenient to go back on the tram because it was too late, long walk through the dark and scary and unfamiliar city, and taxis still be much more expensive.

In Manchester Hard Rock fans can find Café right next to a large shopping center Armdale  Center . We bought  three Hard Rock café T-shirts for £ 30 each. Near Armdale Senter can find the famous Debenham, Zara, Selfridges. And People store Primark, where you can buy clothes for children and adults .

Let men tear their throats at the stadium while the women are  shopping !

 English pub Interesting, but an English pub called (literal translation) the public house. It is a place where people can come to have a drink, eat and sleep. Pubs have been known as places that helped local or travelers rest, eat and of course drink. Nowadays English pubs have not lost their popularity and still full, especially on Fridays , and are one of the typical British attractions.

We live so close to English pub called Sherwood Oak (Sherwood Oak - obviously a fan of Robin Hood). In the pub, there are always people , and for lunch and dinner , and that surprises me the most that people come in elegant clothes and muddy robe after work. Smoke like a chimney and drink a lot of beer. Pubs serve approved menu, hearty English dishes that will satisfy any stomach. Tip: never take the steak - in pubs it is just awful. But the burger , fish and chips - is quite acceptable and tasty.

 English pub

We often take an offer of a pint of beer and a burger for almost 6 pounds (a good deal).

What are served in pubs.

Alcohol - draft beer of various brands , whiskey, gin, wine, a limited range of cocktails, house wine, soft drinks .

Eatables - fish and chips, burgers, steak pie, scampi . All this is a typical English food. Then an Indian curry with rice, grilled chicken breast with cheese, and a couple of names of hot dishes. As for Indian food - it can be called the second English cuisine as the number of immigrants from India is probably not much less than the indigenous British. At snack can always choose snacks and Indian cuisine: spicy different pies, rolls, balls, fried in oil . With simpler desserts - ice cream, profiteroles , apple pie (Bromley Apple Pie).

Your stay in England should certainly be noted by a visit to an English pub. Plunge into typical atmosphere of "public house" and be inspired by this part of English culture.

Names of English pubs.

Our neighbor's Sherwood Oak pub name is Poacher's pocket 

Trivial The Crown does not count, but it's interesting name - Prince of Wales .... The owners of pubs are is race for smarter and notable, attractive names for their creations that energetically promoting themselves.

Wow.. Many of them live in the pubs themselves with their families. Our neighbor Sherwood Oak accommodates its owners on the second floor of the premises , and the son of the owner - 6 year old boy playing with children visitors right in the backyard of a pub on their own playground.

Facts . Children should leave the pub at 9 o'clock in the evening, it's the law. Kitchen takes orders until 8:00 pm , so make your order fast otherwise you will snack on crisps.
