Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    Edinburgh is great, lived there for 18 months during my masters and loved every minute of it. Try and book really early to get their during the fringe festival though (i.e august) if you can find somewhere cheap enough (or consider this an aim for your trip - to find a friend with a floor you can crash on during it).

    The ghost walks there are also fantastic, even as a godless scientist since they take you into sections of the undercity - originally built as storerooms under the old city, they proved to damp to be good warehouses so the poor took over, until the plague when they were built over and forgotten until relatively recently. Also, check out the Jekyl and Hyde pub, its a little wierd and a bit cheesy until you realise you need the loo.

    Edinburgh is pretty amazing actually, definitely reccomend it if you want a city break. It's hard to say which I think is better between the three cities I've had the fortune to live in but I'd say Edinburgh, Brighton then Cambridge. All are completely strange in their own way though for ridiculous reasons. Still, I'd put Cornwall above all those three - its probably the most unique place in Britain once you get away from the normal touristy things.

    Brunel is pretty neat. You could start off at Paddington Station in London, the terminus of his railway company and work your way west out to Bristol
