Healthy Food / Organic Food / Fresh Squeezed Juices  (19 Answers)

Hi there,

We are traveling to the UK for 2 weeks and will be staying in the Seaton Delaval area. Could anyone recommend health food stores / supermarkets that sells a good selection of fresh juices (fresh squeezed or cold pressed) and healthy food in general? Are there any organic supermarkets or places that juice in front of you? We've been told that Waitrose has a decent selection.

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!!

UK train low cost tickets London-Newcastle  (3 Answers)

Good day!

During my visit to London this Dec. I intend to travel for 2 days to Newcastle. I've noticed that when booked in advance, train tickets can go as low as 16 pounds one way. The reservation system allows bookings for some 2.5 month in advance, which means that 8-9 Dec. bookings can be booked as for yesterday.

My question is for those whom are familial with these tickets: when I search dates (Mondays, always) in Nov. or even Dec. 1st I can see these 16-28 pounds tickets available, however for Dec. 8-9 ALL tickets go for 120-150 pounds! which is a fortune when having a small family, and in comparison to domestic flights that go for 45-55 pounds (and which I want to avoid). Are these dates have any "special" demand for train tickets to Newcastle, or is it that the system starts publishing the special "book in advance" fares only a bit later?

I would wait a bit for the low cost option, but if be advised that these dates would most likely be stable on the 120-150 pounds tickets, I would just take the flight option.

Moving to Newcastle for school/work  (11 Answers)


My fiancee and I will be moving to Newcastle Upon Tyne in August. We currently live in the San Jose area of California (silicon valley.) I'm moving to attend Newcastle Uni and he will be joining me and transfering his job. We have never been to the UK before and have so many questions! Here is what we really need to know:

1) City Centre or Quayside? Which is better for the under 25 crowd? Pros? Cons? Pricing isn't a huge factor since we are coming from such an expensive city in Ca.

2) Mobile phones: we have tmobile currently and are considering going with Tmobile UK upon arrival. Good idea?

3) Dog: we are bringing our 4yr old dog with us. Is Newcastle (generally) a pet friendly city?

4) Rental (or letting) policies: what is generally required to let a flat or home in England? We will have a deposit prepared but are there specific documents required?

5) Culture: I am a biracial young woman (Italian/Black American.) Are there many types of people in Newcastle or will we be looked down upon?) We come from such a diverse city, I want to know what to expect!

6) Banks: Which bank(s) are best for temporary accounts? We will be in Newcastle for 1-1.5yrs

7) weather: we know it's cold and rainy usually....right?! Does it ever get hot or snow?

8) Driving: I am terrified of driving on the opposite side of the street! Will I need a new/different drivers license to drive in the UK? Or since I have a valid Ca license, will that work?

Anything else that you would like to share would be so helpful to us! We appreciate your help! Looking forward to our journey!
