Hi dear on-line friends!
First, my best greetings from sunny Bulgaria!
Would you please, tell me which is the more convinient transport in London?
Which is the best transport card for tourist as me-Oyester ot Travel card? Which is the most practical?
Where is the best place to wait for another traveler after I have cleared customs in Terminal 5?
I apologize for re-posting this question but I am a newbie and I don't know how to remove my first question.
I don't think that I was very clear in that query. Please let me try again. I am landing on a BA flight at LHR Terminal 5 on Sunday mid morning. A friend, who is also flying BA, is expected to arrive at LHR Terminal 5 a couple of hours later.
Is there a comfortable place (with luggage in tow) that I can watch the screens to see the status of her flight and wait for her to clear customs we can then meet up so we can then proceed to the Heathrow Express?
Thanks everyone for your patience!
Trip to London is almost here and I've got a couple of questions
I've booked at a hotel without free wifi, we'll be staying near Westminster/Waterloo. Any place nearby with free wifi? Or are there some chains that have it? I think I've read McDonald's does as well as Caffe Nero and Starbucks.
My niece wants to be able to call people she knows in London and her US phone I suspect charges a lot, I've read about getting a throwaway phone, where would be the best place to do this?
That's it, I won't ask about the weather, what shoes to bring or for you to review my itinerary (mostly because you'd tell me I was trying to do too much!)
Other VT's have advised to purchase Eurostar tickets in advance for trips for example London Brussels changing to Amsterdam. How much time in advance is recommenced to get a good price? We are now looking at 3 months from now/May 26st. Also there are 4 seniors traveling together, if that makes any difference. In Brussels changing trains to Amsterdam, there is 15 minutes between trains, does that seem like enough?
Thanks to all in advance, Chuck
I arrive at Terminal 3 around 11:30 a.m. and my friend arrives at Terminal 4 around 12:15 p.m. Do I get my bags and go through immigration before I meet her? Where should I meet her at Terminal 4? Will she already have her bags and have gone through immigration? About how long will it take?
I will arrive on July, on a Sunday at 12: 25 pm. Then I have to take my next flight ( I bought it separately) to Germany at Terminal 5, at 15:10 hrs.. Will I have the time? Or I better change my ticket to next departure that is at 19:00 hrs.
Thank you very much for your answer. I am coming from México, then Dallas, then to London. I am Mexican.
My first flight from CPH- LDN on SAS is scheduled to arrive at LHR Terminal 3 at 350pm and my second flight on Singapore airlines LDN- SIN is scheduled to depart at 835pm at Terminal 3.
Will there be sufficient time for me to clear immigration and baggage from my first flight and re-check in at 635pm for my second flight? As I've heard stories that immigration at LHR takes rather long.
Your help is greater appreciated!
Hello! My family and I are traveling to London 5/25. We have not bought Oyster cards in advance. What is our best and most cost effective way to get to our hotel (Gloucester Road). I have not found that I can buy Oyster cards @ Heathrow (Terminal 3). Is this true? If we cannot buy them, can we buy paper tickets with cash to get us from Heathrow-Gloucester? Where would we do this?
Your help is much appreciated! Thank you!
I am planning on travelling from St:Paul's tube station to Marlow. The national rail is advising me to reach Paddington by tube, and continue the journey by train via Maidenhead. The trouble I am facing is that the train changes are rather closely placed (5 min!). Would it be safe then to buy a anytime day return ticket from PAD to Marlow (and use Oyster for the tube leg)? Does it make sense to book it in advance (which means I have collect it in the PAD station)? What about bus services?; Google maps are providing me a few suggestions, but appear to be a slower option. Comments greatly appreciated!

We are spending the last 4 days of 2 week trip in London. We are flying into Heathrow and are looking for lodging for two nights that is convenient to public transportation (tube/train) The last two nights we are with friends in Bexley. Need suggestions on moderately priced B&B, hotel, etc. will make it easy to get to major London sights. We've been there before I know our way around a bit. Appreciate any suggestions.
