Definitely want to goto Giant's causeway - but want to know if February month will be right to travel there. I will be travelling with my wife and 2 kids (aged 9 & 5).

      Cornwall to Orkneys

      United Kingdom Jan 6, 2015 at 8:45 AM

      Hi. Further to my question of best way to get from Heathrow to Cornwall (and thank you to all who replied) I would now like your advice on the 2nd part of our trip. After walking part of South west coast path from Penzance to Falmouth we would like to travel to the Orkney and Shetland Islands. What would be the best way to get there. I see flights from London are quite expensive. £880 one way. Maybe train to Aberdeen and get ferry? Or car to top of Scotland?
      Any advice gratefully received.
      Thanks
      Jenni.

      London travel advisory - Bus strikes.

      London Yesterday

      I realise this is not a question and I have posted the information in the relevant London transportation page but I post it here additionally in the hope it may save travellers inconvenience as people may not see it elsewhere.

       

      Following a number of strikes already this month the Unite union have decided yet again to seriously disrupt public transport in London with a series of three strikes affecting the buses. They are planned for 5th, 13th and 16th February from 0001 hours to 2359 hours on each occasion. This will obviously have a knock-on effect on night buses both prior to and after the strikes.

       

      Travellers are advised to check and replan their journey if necessary. Details of how to do this can be found on the Government website

       

      http://www.tfl.gov.uk/

       

      As always, I shall update this if the situation changes.

       

      Hope this assists,

       

      fergy.

      Travel insurance for kitesurfing

      United Kingdom Jan 20, 2015 at 12:23 PM

      Hi All

      I am about to go off to learn kitesurfing in South Africa for month and am looking for travel insurance to cover this. Whilst I can find a lot it is difficult to get any that have good claims reviews, preferable should any mishaps occur.

      If anyone can recommend a good UK travel insurer it would be much appreciated.

      Thanks

    • Athenaeum Street on Plymouth Hoe.... Please help with history

      Plymouth Jan 4, 2015 at 3:34 PM

      Hi, I am researching my property on the Plymouth Hoe but having a bit of trouble:( It was built in 1749 and stands as the first and largest house on Athenaeum Street. It was mentioned to of been built originally for a nobleman connected to St Andrews church and later rumored to of been used as the American Consulate during WW11, following that to be owed by Danny La Roue. These references where given to us by a man researching the area staying at the hotel across the road but he was just vacating so only spoke for a few mins. We also had a note left in the house from the previous owners when we purchased the property in 2009. The exterior of property was remodeled by Foulston during the development of Athenaeum Street in the 1800's and later the house was separated into 2 parts in 1903 (of which I purchased the main). The problem that I am having is that as the property is so old, I can not find out what the house was originally named or what the address would of been before Athenaeum Street was developed around it. I have found it may of been built on the site of ' Kingsdon Sq' from one old map also that it was not eligible to pay taxes from another map. I don't know the original owners details and can not find any pictures of any form dating back that far. I have been trying to collate the History with our son as a project for some time but the National Archives allude us. The property has been Grade II Listed and we think it's history really should be unearthed. We have also checked the census from 1851 and found the Baddeley family here who married in with the female Edgecumbes which to this day we still finde the Baddeley's and Edgecumbes very closely connected around the world. They also had alot of dealings in India. Please can anyone help at we have hit a wall ?

      With kindest regards :) 30 Athenaeum Street PL1 2RQ

      Heathrow Dec 29, 2014 at 9:08 PM

      I will be arriving at Heathrow from Mexico City at 16:15 on Apr. 27 (T4), I need to catch a flight the following day to Istanbul (departing from T2) and I have two options: 6:55 or 11:55, I'd rather prefer to take the first one, to gain time before arriving to Turkey, my point is that I was planning to sleep at Yotel in T4 and then move the next day to T2 in the early morning, at what time does the Heathrow Express starts working? (or can I walk between these two terminals?), because I need to be at Turkish Airlines counter at 5:00 the latest, could someone help me please?, I could find any schedule online...

    • Oyster or travelcard?

      London Jan 21, 2015 at 12:10 PM

      Usually I've been using oyster, but this time I'll be there Wednesday-Friday and Sunday-Tuesday because I'll be spending the weekend in Oxford. Is it more sensible to buy money for oyster or a seven day travelcard? I'll be in zones 1 and 2 and I'll probably travel about 3-5 times per day.

      Harry Potter Studio tour - Query

      London Jan 14, 2015 at 2:24 AM

      I am interested in going to Harry Potter studio tour and found the official website listing price for family (2adults and 2 kids) is less than private tour operators. However, the only timeavailable from the official website is after 6pm - I wanted to know whether studio is worth a visit in the night and will I miss any outdoor settings. I youtubed some videos and found the place shown in dim light and with creepy sounds - which made me think that my younger daughter aged 5 who has some development delays may find it a problem. Anyone has views/advises on my two questions? My elder daughter who has read those 500 & 800 pages books was very excited to goto this place.
