      Short connection Terminal 5 and Terminal 2

      Heathrow May 4, 2015 at 8:36 PM

      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

    • Can we undergo US security checks at Heathrow ?

      Heathrow May 10, 2015 at 7:58 AM

      I'll be traveling from Mumbai, India to Gainesville, Florida. For that I have to board a flight at Mumbai which will drop me at Heathrow. I have layover time of about 8 hours at Heathrow, from where I'll be traveling to Miami. And from Miami to Gainesville. But the layover at Miami is only 2 hours, which from what I've heard, is very less for completing immigration checks. So, I was wondering if there is any provision of conducting US security checks at Heathrow instead of Miami?

      During the search for this answer, I came across this post. This looks to be 2014 news. I'm not sure though, whether this has been implemented or not.

      Could anyone please confirm the same?

      Or, is it possible to complete immigration checks at Miami airport within 2 hours ?

      Thanks.

      Britrail England Pass vs Railcard

      England May 18, 2015 at 6:11 AM

      I am visiting Europe for approx 1 month and will be spending the first 6 days in England, using London as a HUB point to stay and taking day-trips around the area. I have done research and am stuck between getting a Britrail England Pass for $218 or getting a youth railcard for $30 which offers 34% off train fares... for convenient/affordable travel on those day trips.

      Was wondering if anyone had any insight? I figured the railcard will give me a little more flexibility and could potentially save me more money if I take less trips out of London than I am planning but the Britrail England Pass is much more convenient for getting on/off trains and not having to worry about tickets.

      Advice on Hotel/B&B near Minack Theatre in Cornwall near Penzance?

      We plan on attending an evening play at the Minack Theatre, which I believe is near Penzance, but have booked a self-catering cottage in Port Isaac. Since the play will be getting out later in the evening and we are both unfamiliar with the local roads, as well as unaccustomed to driving on the left hand side of the road, we thought it wise to book one night nearby the Minack Theatre. Would anyone have a suggestion as to what would be a reasonable and relatively safe route and hotel to stay at for an overnight?? Thank you!

      We would like some ideas on where/how to spend these 2 days making our way back to the airport. We will not have a car. We are not keen to spend 7 or 8 hours in a train or bus to London so thought we could see something interesting in the country instead. Had a quick look at Salisbury but weren't oversold on it.

We are coming by bus from London and we will arrive at around 2am at Penzance Bus Station. Our boat leaves at 9am. We don't have much money and renting a room for half a night seems too expensive (we are already spending over 200 ponds on the tickets. We were wondering if there is some sort of waiting room opened? Maybe at the railway station?

      We tried calling hotels with 24h reception asking if we could wait in their lounge, for a small charge if necessary but no luck here.

      It is our first visit to Cornwall and we would appreciate any help.

I am also interested in visiting towns that are 'traditionally cornish' as opposed to overly touristy. I would like to get a feel for the real Cornwall while I am there, instead of just visiting all touristy places, I would love to see Cornwalls natural beauty and learn about its heritage.

      Does anyone know where the Princess tenders dock in Falmouth? Is it relatively easy to get from this location to Pendennis Castle?
