Are there any lakes in the Lake District? Is Wales closed during the winter? In what month is the May Day demonstration? These are just some of the bizarre questions dealt with by staff on a daily basis at one of Britain's busiest tourist centres. Staff at the Britain & London Visitor Centre on Regent Street in London have been left scratching their heads at some of the lost-in-translation queries they receive at the help centre. One visitor wanted to know: "What is the entry fee for Brighton?" Another asked: "Do you have any information on (former Page 3 girl) Samantha Fox?" It is not known what mode of transport was envisaged by the person who wondered: "Can I get to Jersey any other way apart from sea or air travel?" Unimpressed by the planning behind royal homes, one tourist wanted to know: "Why on earth did they build Windsor Castle on the flight path of Heathrow?" Other geographically-challenged queries included: "What Tube line runs to Edinburgh?" While tourism officials were able to keep a straight face and answer most of the off-the-wall questions, some queries were so surreal they left staff speechless. Encounters could be just as strange north of the border at the help centres of VisitScotland, where questions from tourists included: "Is Edinburgh in Glasgow?" Another tourist wanted to know: "What time of night does the Loch Ness monster surface and who feeds it?"
