    • 7 hour Layover at Heathrow- meeting someone at the Airport

      Heathrow Apr 22, 2015 at 9:14 AM

      We are traveling from Canada and we have a 7 hours transit before leaving to Sri Lanka. We will be arriving at T5 and next  flight will be from T3. I need to meet my brother who lives in London during the layover. Since we are traveling with Canadian passports i guess we dont need visa to enter UK.

      Since we are not planning to go any where else, I can ask him to come to the air port but im not sure to which terminal. If I take the free bus service from T5 to T3, will I be able to go through the immigration at T3 and meet my brother at the air port . Or should I meet him at the terminal 5 ? He will not be traveling so he cant come through the security checking.

    • non connection flights

      London Apr 22, 2015 at 12:51 PM

      If I have not baggage to pick up, I will just have cabin baggage is it possible to use the Flight Connections to go to my next flight if I have an e-ticket. I will be landing in Terminal 2 with Singapore and flying out of the same Terminal with Aer Lingus but I have separate tickets. Or if I checked in on-line on the way over and had a boarding card would that work better? Also any ideas how long before you can check in on-line for an Aer Lingus flight? Looking forward to some helpful feedback. Thanks

    • Manchester Airport Terminal 1 - Short Stay Car Park

      Manchester Apr 12, 2015 at 11:43 AM

      Hi,

      I'm going traveling in a few weeks and my parents want to drop me off and come into the terminal to make sure i'm checked in all right. I was just wondering about parking.

      I've read about the multi storey and that being the best option, but how & where do you go about paying? especially as they'll only be parked for 30mins - 1hour.

      Complete novice to this sort of thing. I'm normally just dropped off and that's that. So any help will be more than appreciated

      Thanks

      Short connection Terminal 5 and Terminal 2

      Heathrow 17 hours ago

      Hi everyone,

      I have booked flights with Singapore Airlines from Edinburgh to Singapore next month. I arrive at Heathrow Terminal 5 at 0925on a BA flight and leave from Terminal 2 with Singapore Airlines at 1130 so just over 2 hours connection time.
      Will this be enough? I'm not sure if I can check my suitcase through from Edinburgh as I don't think there is a Singapore Airlines check in there.(The BA ticket was bought through them though.)
      I'm panicking a little as, although I know Singapore Airlines will be obliged to get me back if I don't make the connection, all the later flights seem to be full and I have an onward connection to New Zealand that I need to get.
      I'd really appreciate any advice. 3

      I have a 15 hr overnight layover at Heathrow and I am thinking to go and check out London since it will be my first time there.

      My questions are:

      1. Am I allowed to leave the airport with the transit visa and then return to continue my flight?
      2. Do the trains or buses to and from the airport operate 24/7?
      3. Is there a place that you recommend a first time visitor to check out at night? (A mall, street, park etc.)

      Area around the Oval Space.

      We are travelling to London craft beer festival at August. The festival takes place at place called "The Oval space". My husband suggested we could stay near it, but we´ve never been in that area. I think we wouldn´t need to, since we stay 4 nights, and planning to go there for one day. Or what do you think? How is the area? We´ve stayed at Paddington, at the City (near Liverpool street station) and at Victoria area before. None of them is a must now, could go to new area again. I´m searching for places at airbnb, they seem to be chepaer than hotels in London also.
      We like to go to a pub at night (craft beers are huge bonus on pub menu ;) ) and find places to eat near the place we stay.

      There are 3 of us traveling to Britain in May for 2 weeks. We want to spend about 5 days in London with 1 of those days to travel east by train and 1 day to go to Oxford and Warwick Castle. We then plan to take a train to Edinburgh for 4 days and do sightseeing there.
      My question is we also want to fit in Bath, Salisbury, Stonehenge, Michael's Mount and Tintagel. We are thinking of renting a car for this phase. I'm wondering if we should rent car in Salisbury and do Stonehenge and drive to Bath that evening. Spend a day in bath and make way towards Michael's Mount and do quick trip there and then on to Tintagel and drive along the coast by Tintagel and then head back to Salisbury. Can we take train from Salisbury to Heathrow?
      Please provide any insights, suggestions. My husband is nervous about renting a car and wife says "let's do it"!

      Advice of Cumbrias Local

      Cumbria Apr 20, 2015 at 11:21 AM

      Hello! I need an advice of Cumbrias Locals. I have a pen friend who lives alone in a small village Mealsgate. We had been exchaiging letters every day for more than 3 months till last Thursday whan he didn't answer my last message. He is not a person who stops correspondence without any explination and I am afraid that he may be in trouble. He relocated to Mealsgate about 2 months and don't know his neighbours. Most people come to this place only for a weekend. So if he felt bad or locked or anything else it was possible that there were nobody to hepl! I had a such type bad experience when I couldn't open my bathroom door and thought that I might stay there forever. So I worry and don't know what to do. I found local police email but I am afraid they will dicide that it is a joke. I actually hope that he is fine but his computer is broken or just doesn't want to communicate but I would like to be sure that he doesn't need help.
      Any ideas?

      Which bus to take?

      by christine.j Online Now Jul 17, 2011 at 3:25 AM

      I've been to Cambridge so often that I thought I'd know my way around. But usually I walked or took a bus from the railway station to the centre, quite easy.
      This time we're travelling with a baby and the weather forecast predicts a mixture of light rain and heavy rain. I've tried finding the right bus for us on the Cambridgeshire Transport website, but no luck. I suppose I'm too stupid to find it, so I thought I'd come here and ask you.

      We have to get from the train station to our B&B in Milton Road. Is it Citibus 4? Or any other bus? I haven't been able to find a page showing all the stops.

      We cannot take a taxi because they don't have baby seats, so it's either walking or buses.

      Thank you for your help.

      Hello,
      I will be visiting Cambridge just for one day.
      I was planning to take a sightseeing hop on / hop off tour bus so I can see more of this city and punt along river cam. Do you think this is a good plan for one day in Cambridge or perhaps someone suggests other things?

      Would love to have dinner in a local restaurant - think I'd go for The Eagle, any other suggestions?

      The next day I will be travelling to London, so far I know I have to leave Cambridge by train and stop at Kings Cross in London ... can someone please forward a link to the railway station website. I will be staying at the Ashley Hotel, 74 Chesterton Road, Cambridge, CB4 1ER where I believe is best to take a taxi from the hotel to the railway station.

      Any suggestions for a lovely day in Cambridge are most welcome.

      Sunday Bus or train from Cambridge to Heathrow

      by AnnieG. Online Now Feb 21, 2007 at 11:14 AM

      Hi. I looked on the Natl. Express site for fares from Cambridge to Heathrow on Sunday, May 13, as we have a 5pm plane to catch. The site gives fares, then says they're only good Mon-Thurs., leading me to believe those busses don't travel on Sunday, but an email from them says they do. Anyone know:
      a) if Natl. Express bus (coach, they're called) does run on Sunday from Cambridge to Heathrow, in time for us to catch 5pm flight? And Sunday fare?
      b) if there's a TRAIN that might be faster? (And where it goes, and connections to Heathrow?)
      c) Anyone who lives in Cambridge up for putting a middle-aged couple up for the night of May 12? (Just thought I'd ask!)

    • Lessons & Carols - King's College

      Does anyone have advice about when/where to join the line to gain entrance to the chapel for Lessons and Carols? Are there public facilities nearby? Three of us are traveling from the USA for this marvelous event. Even leaning up against the wall on the outside will make it worthwhile, but would prefer to get in!
