London Luton Airport
London Luton Airport is the most distant of London's airports and is 57 km from the city centre to the North West of the city. It is located 3 km from the Bedfordshire town of Luton and is located close to the M1 motorway with fast rail links to the centre of London. Luton is the 4th largest of the so-called London airports after Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted. The majority of the airlines using Luton serve airports in Europe though a small number of long haul destinations are also available.
The airport serves as a hub for the low cost carriers easyJet and RyanAir as well as charter airlines Monarch and Thomson. In 2008 the airport handled more than 10 million passengers.
Car parking and hotels are available on the airport and neighbouring areas.
Worcester Cathedral sits in the centre of the city of Worcester over-looking the river Severn. It was founded in 680 but nothing remains of the original building and the oldest part now standing is the crypt which dates to the 10th century. Most of the current building is from the 12th and 13th Centuries.
The cathedral has the tomb of King John who died in 1216 as well as a memorial to Prince Arthur, the elder brother of Henry VIII and first husband of Henry's wife Katherine of Aragon. It is believed that the cathedral was spared the worst of Henry's destruction during the Reformation because of the significance of his brother's memorial.
The cathedral is open all year round and charges no admission fee - although of course donations are encouraged. Tours are available for a small fee. Opening hours are from 7.30 am to 6 pm daily.

The Severn Bore
Arising in the Cambrian Mountains in mid Wales and joining the Irish Sea as the Bristol Channel, the Severn is Britain's longest river (354 kilometres). The river is the site of one of the country's few natural phenomena, the Severn Bore. This is a tidal wave which travels upstream propagated by the narrowing of the river's channel. Usually seen as a series of three or four waves, the Bore can reach speeds of up to 13 miles per hour and, with a particularly high tide, can reach a height of six feet.
There are several places where the Bore can be seen and there are tide tables which predict the hour of its occurrence. At Minsterworth the road is right beside the river and access to the river can be gained at the Bird-in-Hand pub, by the old ferry or at the church. It has become an attraction for surfers to ride the wave upstream and the record distance is currently some seven and a half miles (set in April 2006).
Local parking is available at several sites where the road approaches the river bank.
There is local parking at the access points.
