      Finalizing March trip

      England 2 hours ago

      The flights I want to take are BA codeshare with AA. I can get the AA tickets less expensively, but what I want to do is to fly BWI to LHR and then take the train to Cornwall. Then fly by Flybe from Newquay to Manchester, and then fly BA from Manchester to LHR and thence to BWI.

      So the question I asked the guy from BA was - if I book the BWI to LHR and back with AA can I check my luggage through from Manchester to BWI? And he said I could. But I have very little confidence in his answer and think maybe I should pay more and just book the whole thing (except the Flybe part) with BA. What do you think?

      I also asked him if I could take my folding mobility scooter with me in the cabin. Which I will also want to do on Flybe. It looks like I will be able to do so but I haven't actually talked to the Flybe folks yet. The scooter weighs 50 lbs/23 kg and measures about 45 cm x 40 cm x 64 cm. I really don't want to check it in the hold luggage.

      It looks like I could rent a car in Manchester through Flybe. Would that be a good deal? And would it be convenient to pick the car up at the airport and would we be able to get out of Manchester from there easily to go to Huddersfield?

      Does anyone have a recommendation for a hotel to stay the day we get there which would be convenient to the station where we would be getting the Paddington to Penzance train? Also any recommendations for a place to stay in Port Isaac and in Huddersfield?

      Market Harborough Jul 8, 2014 at 9:15 AM

      I am moving to market harborough next month and will be commuting to london everyday in the rush hours.
      Is the train service reliable? frequency of delays in the rush hour? and do you usually manage to find a seat on the train? According to my research there is no interchange so all trains are direct to london kingscross. Many thanks in advance for your comments/helps.

    • Looking for Hotel weekend 4th/5th July

      Birmingham Jun 18, 2014 at 11:49 PM

      Hi - my son and his friend are going to the Wireless festival in Perry Park from 4th July to 6th July. He doesn't want to take a car so is looking for a reasonably prices hotel ( £50 per night) that he can get to by public transport from Perry Park. So transport needs to be running at say 11.30pm on the Friday and Saturday Night.

      Nothing decent available in the centre of Birmingham but still availability in Edgbaston (Hagley Road).

      Does anyone know if buses run fairly late along the Hagley Road? if so, are they safe?

      Thanks for any help?

      Beaconsfield...model village and accomodation question

      Buckinghamshire Feb 18, 2008 at 3:43 PM

      Hi all...I am doing research for my up and coming trip to the UK. I have a thing about model villages and the Bekonscot village in Beaconsfield looks amazing. Has anyone ever been there?

      I have some other questions...I intend to travel from London...train or bus? How can I find bus and train timetables on the net so I can make a decision?

      Also I am having trouble finding cheapish accomodation in Beaconsfield and thought maybe I will have to stay in a nearby village...but which one ? If I do stay somewhere else how will I get around as I am reluctant to hire a car? Would the public bus service be sufficient?

      Hopefully someone can help me...and thanks in advance...

      B & B in the Gerrards Cross, Beaconsfield area.

      Buckinghamshire Oct 2, 2005 at 11:27 AM

      We are going to a reunion in Gerrards Cross in a couple of weeks time, and need somewhere to stay for one night. Does anyone know of a comfortable B & B within easy reach of GC that is not too expensive ? Anywhere within about ten miles would do. I've been searching the internet, but so far have come up with only a few and they all seem to be around £ 90 for a double room.

      Hotel Advice Needed

      Milton Keynes Jun 6, 2005 at 8:04 AM

      Hi there,

      I am planning on going to MK on June 25th to see my fave band Texas perform live at the Summer XS festival. I was already going to London anyway, so travel to London is already taken care off.

      Does anybody know what is the cheapest way to spend the night in MK (besides sleeping on a park bench?)

      Any B&B's, Hotels, Hostels etc are fine by me, I just need to sleep there for 1 night.

      Thank you !!!

      How to get to....

      Amersham May 10, 2003 at 7:37 AM

      Amersham in Buckinghamshire. I need to get there to meet a VT friend and wander around. I see it on the tube map but it's outside of zone 6, so assuming I need more than a zone 1-6 card. I'm not used to travelling outside the zone boundaries, so if I have a zone 1-6 day travel card, how to I get the rest of the way to Amersham? I'm assuming I have to change from the tube to a train somewhere along the way? Can anyone explain this for me please? Thanks, Laura
