From The Guardian's travel section:
One advantage to camping in the U.K. is that you can pitch your tent and head for the pub. Alastair Sawday offers his picks of great bars near equally gorgeous campsites, so you can "stagger straight from tavern to tent." There's Llanthony Priory, a 12th-century abbey in Wales near the River Wye with a pub in the cellar and a campsite nearby. If you prefer a step up from camping, you can stay in the abbey hotel, bunk in an old stone barn or rent out a wing of a working farm. The Three Horseshoes, a former coaching inn located in the peaceful Somerset countryside, serves local organic produce as well as local ales and ciders, and you can camp nearby at Batcombe Vale, designated an Area of Outstanding Beauty. Other pub camping choices include Devon, Cornwall, Yorkshire and Dorset.

Don't buy airline ticket vouchers online! It's a scam. Don't fall for it. Some of these vouchers are being offered online at discounts of up to 80 percent off the face value of the ticket, but when you try to use them to pay for a flight, the airline can't validate the voucher numbers, and you lose.
Any talk of what “China must do” only increases their resistance and hardens their position. Chinese youth have been educated in this system and, watching the news, one understands why they are behind the furor.
The Chinese government has raised a generation on nationalism. To them, this is just another example of Western interference and hypocrisy.
