    • Preston to Blackburn - options?

      Lancashire Mar 19, 2015 at 9:05 AM

      Hi there,

      I'm wanting to go from The Universty of Lancashire's campus in Preston (PR1) to see a friend at St. Mary's College Blackburn (BB1), on the 31st of this month. I'm wondering what the cheapest/fastest way to do this is. Is there a particular bus line that I could take, and where's the best place I could catch this bus?

      Thanks and all the best, Hashim

      Cambridge Mar 17, 2015 at 8:09 AM

      Hi, I'm looking to book somewhere for a Saturday night for 6 people to celebrate my husbands 50thbirthday. Really good food and atmosphere is important. I wondered if any locals could help? There is a place that looks like they do good steaks with a rooftop bar, but it's attached to a hotel, not normally a recipe for plenty of life! Have looked at Cotto's website but lack of wine prices scares me. I've seen somewhere called Cau, doesn't look overly special but maybe someone could tell me different? Would appreciate ideas, thankyou

We have looked at streetsensation.co.uk/market... and it seems that Camden Passage, Spitalfields, Bermondsey Market, Piccadilly Market & Gray's Antique Market might be possibilities. Looking for all comments and sometimes Car Boot sales can even be better, is there a good web site that lists Car Boot sales? Hopefully something NOT as busy as Portobello Rd. is on a Saturday.

    • UK transit visa, can my brother bring my daughter to UK when travelling to US

      London Mar 9, 2015 at 6:50 AM

      I am already working in UK, my daughter (2 years) is in India and she just got a dependent visa last week. I was supposed to go to India for 2 week to pick her up later this month BUT now there is a possibility that my brother who is in India and may be travelling to US on B2(visit visa) later this month. he does not have any UK visa. So I was wondering on the following points…

      If he can take US ticket via London (layover flight), can I meet him on Heathrow?
      Does he needs to have a transit visa?
      If yes, then where and how long does it take to apply for one?
      If not, can he bring my daughter outside, so i can take her from arrival point at Heathrow?
      My daughter needs to go through Immigration control and my brother needs to also take her luggage and bring her to arrival point so i can take her from there. does he also needs to go through immigration control, even through he will not come outside the airport at any point.
      On Gov.uk it says that if you have a confirmed flight to your destination within 24 hours and do not go though immigration control then you do not need to have a visa, in my situation he needs to take my daughter to immigration control and to pick her luggage.

      Could any one please suggest, what are my options?

      London Mar 16, 2015 at 11:40 AM

      Firstly, a HUGE thank you to all who responded and gave helpful tips on how to best secure theatre tickets. I am quite techno-challenged and wasn't able to provide individual comments to all those who kindly took the time to answer. Now my question is regarding DAY TICKETS which seem to be offered at some theatres. Are they easy to obtain if I line up on day of performance? Are they snapped up so quickly that they are not worthwhile lining up for? Are the seats decent? I read that they could be in the very front row--I wouldn't mind these as my sister and I have high myopia which have progressively worsened in the last 3 to 5 years and need to be seated close to the stage. Also, what age does the Senior category start at? Your help is so much appreciated! Cheers!

    • Is it better to stay in Paddington or Kings Cross?

      London Mar 9, 2015 at 11:09 AM

      Looking to stay at either Tune Hotel Paddington or Tune Hotel Kings Cross, only. Interested in typical tourist sites such as Tower Bridge, London Eye, British Museum, but also shopping/other locations such as Hyde Park, Harrods, Piccadilly Circus. My friend and I are leaving through both Gatwick and Heathrow, so location in terms of traveling ease does not matter.

      I would prefer to stay in the nicer area of the two, as I'd like to walk around a little and feel safe enough. I've heard Kings Cross is quite industrial, but has slowly been becoming nicer. I'm currently leaning towards Paddington because of its vicinity to Hyde Park and convenience in terms of shopping/leisure areas.

      Which do you think is better?

      Thank you!
