First of all I would like to give a shout out to who ever made this site I think it is awsome. I am currently planning a backpacking trip to the UK and this will be my first time. I will be leaving in september of next year and am planning to start my trip in London and then head up through Scotland and back down through Ireland. From there I am thinking of either jumping a jet to France or Belgium and continuing on my travels from there. This will be my first big trip on my own and am looking for some advice on how to start planning it. Also also if anyone has any suggestions on where to stay or hot spot to visit. I will be staying in London for about a month, then will work my way up to Edinburgh stopping at various towns on the way. I have heard of people working at pubs and hostels getting paid under the table as they travel. I am wondering if this is a good way to see the country and to best see the culture. Any way if anyone has some advice for me please feel free to respond any advice is welcome.

London is a very expensive city, do you have free accommodation? What sort of things are you interested in seeing in the UK as all 4 seperate countries (England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales) all have different things to offer

Hey thanks for the reply, currently I am looking into some hostels in London it looks like it will cost me about 20-25 dollars a night. I am also checking out this web site called couch surfing. I dont know if you have heard of it but people offer places to stay for a couple of nights for travellers on the go. The web site allows you to talk and make plans with people in the area you are travelling to. If you can give me any info on this or websites like these that would be awsome. I am still not too sure what I want to see while im there, however I am thinking ruins such as stone henge and castles would be good places to visit. If you have any suggestions please shoot.
