Lol. How would that help if you don't know what local prices are? Sales taxes, property taxes, salaries, local competition, local expectations, they all influence prices. I've met Europeans in all corners of the world who think of Canada as expensive because they took one look at Toronto or Lake Louise hotel prices and stopped planning. When I tell them the cost of a coffee, they reconsider.

Keeping in mind that reason being there is for a relative's wedding and flying there is biggest expense... Euro Disney is much cheaper then Florida Disney which have already done. It's something BIL and family want to do and since staying with them for a bit we are considering but not for sure yet.MonctonMan wrote: ↑Sep 9th, 2017 4:10 amOP, don't look at saving money and look at getting value. Euro Disney, for example, strikes me as idiotic unless you think Irma is going to destroy Orlando or you have a criminal record.
Pubs. Every night go to a pub. Also go during the day for contrast. It is a dying tradition, but it is the most unique aspect of England. In smaller towns there will be families there. Nobody eats there (they sell food for legal reasons, not because they want to). In London the pubs close at 11PM. DO NOT TIP!!!
Food. There are no English restaurants in Canada for a good reason. Self cater, sandwiches, fast food. You can save a fortune as long as you don't pursue the illusive good meal.
History. Not all European cities are worth visiting, no matter how nice the people are. Check out the cities in Google Streetview.

Why not consider Ireland? It's pretty close as well.georvu wrote: ↑Sep 10th, 2017 12:54 amKeeping in mind that reason being there is for a relative's wedding and flying there is biggest expense...

Will definitely research the local establishments with BIL... research purposes only Thanks for suggestion.
He can probably plan a good itinerary for all of us however wanted some RFD viewpoints as well.
Agreed that not worthwhile to visit too many European cities. Gonna be in/near London so that is a start plus Scotland... got Paris not too far away and considering Switzerland.

Scotland is a 7 hour drive away from Edinburgh. Switzerland is 10. I'd either stay in the UK for the 2/3 weeks, or head to Paris to do your Disney thing and then stay on the continent. If you're going to go to Scotland - then I'd recommend actually seeing more of it than just Edinburgh or Glasgow. Head to Skye or the Hebrides for example but that will take time. Its also festival time in Edinburgh in August so be prepared to pay through the nose for accommodation and don't even consider driving downtown.

It depends on what you want to do and how much you are willing to spend.
