      London Travel pass

      London Mar 29, 2015 at 4:33 PM

      I will stay 1 day in London (whole day) and I read about Oyster crd for 1.2 zones etc. - London visit states that a 1 day travel pass for zones 1-6 at 12.00 Pound which seems to be a good deal even I will travel only in zunes1.2. But: visitlondon offers a 1 day Card for 6 €uros and states that it can be only ordered fromoutside UK. Can anybody tell me if this is true ?

      London market or Car Boot sale that is recommended weekdays, Tu - Fri, last 2 weeks of June

      London Mar 24, 2015 at 6:39 PM

      For older, collectable, antique & unusual items. 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. Thank you all.

    • How much to budget for for one week

      London Mar 19, 2015 at 3:37 PM

      Hi all

      I am just wondering if anyone can help with a rough estimate of how much we should budget for per day in London. We will be there for one week in April. We will only be requiring 2 meals per day as we have breakfast provided at our hotel. And we have an Oyster card for travel as well.

    • Leaving LHR on Delta Airlines at 6:30am

      London Mar 22, 2015 at 2:45 PM

      We are currently scheduled to fly from LHR at 6:30am in the morning in June. We will be staying in a hotel on Glouster Road in Kensington for several nights prior to flying out of LHR. My question is: Do you think that it would be better to stay in a hotel near the airport or would we be just as well off traveling from Kensington at about Midnight and sitting in the airport for about 3 or 4 hours?

    • Medical cover for UK and Australian tourists visiting the other country

      London Mar 23, 2015 at 6:30 AM

    • 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?

    • DAY TICKETS to Theatres

      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!

      Hi - what is the best spot to catch changing of the guards and what time in advance do we have to get there?

      I am thinking of a Friday morning or Sunday morning. Does it makes a difference - ie does it get less busy on a weekday?

    • 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!

      Travel between terminal 5 and terminal 3 at Heathrow airport.

      Heathrow Mar 13, 2015 at 9:16 AM

      Hi all,

      Next month I travel from Manchester to Miami via Heathrow, both flights with American airlines.
      How do I travel from terminal 5 to terminal 3?
      I land at 07:55 and depart terminal 3 at 09:45. Is this plenty of time to get between terminals?
      Will my bags be checked through from Manchester to Miami?

      Many thanks

    • 1 hour and 5 minutes connection in LHR

      Heathrow 8 hours ago

      Air canada issued me a ticket which I have 24 hours left to cancel without a penalty. Travelling by Air Canada in terminal 2 and the next flight is Singapore airlines in terminal 2 as well. I am very concerned because the time of transit in LHR is exactly 1 hour and 05 minutes. Should I be good to make the connection on time?

      The baggage is through from Canada to India. Also i have another connection in Singapore to Madras for another 1 hour 45 minutes.

      I will be flying on a weekend.

      You folks please advise if this transit in london will work since both the planes are in Terminal 2.

      Day trips from London (tour)

      London Mar 12, 2015 at 9:45 PM

      I emailed a tour company for day trips to Windsor and Stonehenge, another to outer Cities in UK. Did not have any respond. I want to try to avoid large commercialised ones like viator...as there isn't much flexibility in hotel pick ups and groups are big.

      Looking for a reliable tour company that offer small group tour with hotel pick up if available. I have explored DIY for Windsor and Stonhenge but they are too time consuming and worked out almost to a daily tour cost.

      Hope someone can give me recommendations. Thanks.
