Thinking of an early may holiday either in the mainland UK, northern france, channel islands or Ireland.

Any recommendations?

Pontypridd.

It's simply stunning in May. Never mind 'Paris in the Springtime'.

Any recommendations?I liked Jersey. It is like being in northern France with the names of the places and the architecture, but it has the benefit that there are no French people. :rolleyes:

On a serious note, the food was without exception superb. They do pub lunches very well and expensive restaurants are even better.

It is good if you like to see castles, not sure that I would recommend it for other sightseeing activities though.

Or if you like to see people in God's waiting room!

Go to Paris, rent an apartment off the Rue De Rivoli for an absolutely perfect break, you're not told what time to have breakfast, as might should you stay in a hotel. You come back to your apartment in the afternoon and relax absorbing the atmosphere. perfect.

I thought Londoners were meant to go to Margate.

All this talk of foreign countries is just showing off.

Depends what you want really - we had a weekend in Dorset, Burton Bradstock specifically, last year - very pleasant it was too.

The local pub (The Anchor) has a wonderful seafood menu, too :)
