    • Athenaeum Street on Plymouth Hoe.... Please help with history

      Plymouth Jan 4, 2015 at 3:34 PM

      Hi, I am researching my property on the Plymouth Hoe but having a bit of trouble:( It was built in 1749 and stands as the first and largest house on Athenaeum Street. It was mentioned to of been built originally for a nobleman connected to St Andrews church and later rumored to of been used as the American Consulate during WW11, following that to be owed by Danny La Roue. These references where given to us by a man researching the area staying at the hotel across the road but he was just vacating so only spoke for a few mins. We also had a note left in the house from the previous owners when we purchased the property in 2009. The exterior of property was remodeled by Foulston during the development of Athenaeum Street in the 1800's and later the house was separated into 2 parts in 1903 (of which I purchased the main). The problem that I am having is that as the property is so old, I can not find out what the house was originally named or what the address would of been before Athenaeum Street was developed around it. I have found it may of been built on the site of ' Kingsdon Sq' from one old map also that it was not eligible to pay taxes from another map. I don't know the original owners details and can not find any pictures of any form dating back that far. I have been trying to collate the History with our son as a project for some time but the National Archives allude us. The property has been Grade II Listed and we think it's history really should be unearthed. We have also checked the census from 1851 and found the Baddeley family here who married in with the female Edgecumbes which to this day we still finde the Baddeley's and Edgecumbes very closely connected around the world. They also had alot of dealings in India. Please can anyone help at we have hit a wall ?

      With kindest regards :) 30 Athenaeum Street PL1 2RQ

      Heathrow Dec 29, 2014 at 9:08 PM

(or can I walk between these two terminals?), because I need to be at Turkish Airlines counter at 5:00 the latest, could someone help me please?, I could find any schedule online...

    • Transferring between T2 and T5

      Heathrow 21 hours ago

      My friend is arriving at T2 (from Frankfurt) and departing for the US from T5 - different airlines and not through ticketed, as far as I can tell. So she's going to have to pick up her luggage, transfer terminals and check in. She only has two and a half hours to do so. And she's a US citizen, so presumably might be held up at immigration.
      Is this an impossible schedule? As she's transiting the airport, is there some simpler quicker way to do this than going through immigration and customs as a normal arriving passenger would, before she transfers terminals?

      Harry Potter Studio tour - Query

      London Jan 14, 2015 at 2:24 AM

      I am interested in going to Harry Potter studio tour and found the official website listing price for family (2adults and 2 kids) is less than private tour operators. However, the only timeavailable from the official website is after 6pm - I wanted to know whether studio is worth a visit in the night and will I miss any outdoor settings. I youtubed some videos and found the place shown in dim light and with creepy sounds - which made me think that my younger daughter aged 5 who has some development delays may find it a problem. Anyone has views/advises on my two questions? My elder daughter who has read those 500 & 800 pages books was very excited to goto this place.

      Hello,

      My husband and I will be flying in to Gatwick and flying out of either Gatwick or Stansted in Mid May. We get in around 1:30pm and leave about that same time the following day. Where will be the easiest area to stay if we fly out of Gatwick and what's best if we fly out of Stansted? We are in our early 30's and in good physical condition, but will have backpacks so we don't want to have to walk too far from the train stations. We aren't too worried about doing too much sightseeing, but want to be in an area that is very walkable with good restaurants. We also want to be close to whatever transportation is easiest to get us back to the airport. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I have to be back in London by 15th April afternoon.
      (1) London - I see that accommodation around London are quite expensive. Any place outskirt of London that is good to stay. Budget Inn budget hotel. Mode of transport
      (2) Manchester - Stadium Tour, Match-day & discover Manchester.
      (3) Mode of transport to other city/places.

    • Transfer from T5 to T3

      Heathrow Jan 14, 2015 at 12:52 AM

      Hi, we will leave from Dusseldorf with BA and arrive at T5 at 7.50AM.
      We have to transfer to T3 to catch our flight to Dallas which leaves at 9.30 AM: also BA but operated by American Airlines.
      When we booked this flight it said on the website this flight was operated by BA aswell, so we thought we could stay in T5, and 1 hour 40 min would be plenty off time!
      However checking the BA website later we found out this flight is operated by AA, and we have to transfer to T3.
      I'm very worried we won't make this transfer.
      Would anyone be so kind to explain us, maybe step by step, what's the fastest way to go to T3?
      Do i realy need to worry, or is 1 hour 40 min enough time?
      Thank you for your time and help!

      Derbyshire Feb 4, 2008 at 8:07 PM

      Planning a mid-March trip to the Peak District, and must choose between 2 equally lovely rentals in Buxton or Matlock. We're flying from the U.S. to Gatwick, so the weekend train ride to Buxton Via Manchester looks to be 6 hours; Matlock looks considerably shorter. We'll be without a car and will use the trains/busses and bike/walk to visit Bakewell, Castleton, Abney. What are the pros & cons of each town. I know Buxton is a gem and a much larger place. Does it lose its charm by being larger? I'd love to hear some opinions as I've never been to the area and don't know what to expect. My ideal is a place where we could walk a few minutes to the coutryside, but also to a pub, grocer, and excellent bakery.

      Peak District - transport & accom help!

      Hi Everyone,

      My friend and I would like to go away to the Peak District for the Easter weekend coming up (last minute thing).

      There are 2 things I need help with..

      First is Transport. We don't know if we should catch a train up on the Good Friday 6 April to Manchester, and then hir a car from Manchester and drive to the Peak District (assuming car hire places are open on Good Friday?). Or simply just drive to the Peak District from London. Does anyone know how long it would take to drive straight there? Or should we catch a train to Manchester first? Any thoughts?

      Second part its accommodation. I've looked at so many websites, but I still have no idea where to stay (or which town to stay in). Ideally, I'd like to stay in a small country town that is close to some sight seeing destinations. I'm a 'scenic' type of person and would like to visit some old English estates while I'm there and would also like to explore a bit of the country side (walking if weather permitting). My budget is around £30 per person per night and I'm thinking B&B's might be the best option. Could you suggest a nice town? and / or a nice B&B we could stay in? Or any other accommodation options for around the same price?

      Any advice / thoughts / guidance would be much appreciated!!!

      Many thanks,
      M.

      Thanks to everyone who answered my last question, in particular Joe who was super helpful. I just need a little more info. My friend and I who are going to London decided that we will stay in a county closer to London and travel to Derbyshire for a day trip instead of staying there and paying rail into London for 4 days. But, if we stay in like a county that's only like half an hour out of London, can we get a cab into the city? How much is it, I live in a small town so I don't know anything about cabs, much less London cabs. I still need lots more info about transportation. THANKS THANKS THANKS! If all Europeans are as friendly as you guys- I'm twice as excited! PS- Is Europeans politcally correct?

      I am having a terrible time finding accurate information about transportation for my trip to London. I don't want to stay in London because it's too expensive. I want to stay in a surrounding county, I chose Derbyshire because of the beautiful pictures I've seen and that it contains many of the sightseeing places I want to go including Lyme Park. However, I can't find how far it is from Derbyshire to London. How far is it? What are the different transportations to get there and how much do they cost? Is there another surrounding county you would recommend?
