      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'm coming in August for one night, to visit the Dr Who Experience, but I think the hotel would be more conveniently placed near the station, rather than near the Bay, as after visiting the exhibition it would be more useful to be in the city centre.

      Anyone else interested? If so, leave a reply here or send me a VT email. It has been a while since the last VT gathering in Cardiff and there may be some new peeps in the area that I've never met and, who knows, might want to seize the chance to meet some real, live, fellow VT members...

      hi all Welsh speaking VTR'S ;-)

      We are planning a stag weekend in Cardiff in September.We are having an afternoon at Chepstow races on the Frdiay,Comedy Club Friday night,and a morning clay pigeon shooting the following day.The rest of our time I would guess will be spent frequenting local pubs and bars.
      Are there any bars that we should try to avoid,we are not youngsters,all are 40+,so we are not stupid,but we want to sample the nightlife Cardiff has to offer,without any aggro.We're not clubbers,but enjoy decent music and the craic.
      Any tips would be appreciated

      cheers

      the bear

    • London Luton to Cardiff

      Dear all,

      i already posted a question in the London Forum about travelling from London Luton to Cardiff. They informed me that the bus is available but apparently its quite a lengthy journey plus a number of stops.

      Now i'm considering renting a car - do you know roughly how long does it take to get to cardiff from london luton by car? i'll be travelling on a saturday morning.

      Regards
      Stefan

      Budget/Hostel Accomodation in Cardiff

      by romancandle Online Now Mar 2, 2009 at 10:07 AM

      A friend and I will be staying in Cardiff for a few days in April, but are students on a budget. Any suggestions as to where we can stay? Our range is £20-40 a night, tops! Cheap B&Bs, hostels (preferably with double rooms) and any other suggestions welcome/desperately sought.

      Thanks in advance!
