      Off-Peak Day Return question

      England Feb 2, 2016 at 3:49 AM

      I understand that the off-peak tickets are only valid after 9:30 in the morning. But I haven't been able to find out if they are also bound to a specific time in the afternoon. Can they be used on any train when going back? Or is there a certain rush hour, when all the commuters travel back and the off-peak ticket is not valid? I don't want to be bound to a specific train, but the difference between this ticket and an anytime return is more than 11 GBP so I'm thinking about getting it. This is for the London-Cambridge-London trains.

      Thank you for your help.

    • T5 to T3 cross uk border?

      Heathrow Yesterday

      I'm Colombian trying to book a flight from Houston, TX to Barcelona, Spain. With British Airways. My flight will have a conexion in London Heathrow for 2 hours. I will arrive at T5 and departure will be at T3. I WOULD LIKE SOME HELP figuring out if I will cross uk border when I go from T5 to T3 to catch my conexion flight? And if I will need a visa

      According to this article from the uk government website

      Colombian nationals will be able to transit airside through UK airports without needing a Direct Airside Transit Visa (DATV).

      Colombian nationals will still need a visa if they want to cross the UK border for any reason, whether to visit or change flights. If a connecting flight is from another airport, passengers will still need to get a Visitor in Transit Visa before passing through the UK.

    • Walking from Terminal 5 to Staines Moor

      Heathrow Jan 12, 2016 at 9:59 AM

      Hi everybody!

      In May I will arrive at terminal 5 and will have more than six hours before my connecting flight (also T5) departs. I know I'll need plenty of time for security, but I think there should nevertheless be enough time for a short walk outside the airport. I am thinking of walking to Staines Moor and maybe spend an hour there. My questions: Is it feasible? Can I walk from terminal 5 to Staines Moor or is that practically impossible because there are only big roads? Has anybody done this during a stopover? If so, do you recommend it? If you think it's a bad idea, can you recommend any alternative?

      Suggestions: Corfe Castle or ?

      Dorset Dec 27, 2012 at 11:24 AM

      I sell scenic photos at our local farmers market of trips I've taken around the world. Here's the plan for April 2013: Ma and I will stay 1 night at Thornbury Castle near Bristol and we wanted to take the train to Wareham & then a bus to visit Corfe for 2 nights, take the steam train to Swanage etc. After our 2 nights, we planned to take the bus back to Wareham & a then the train back to London via Farnham to make a quick visit to Waverley Abbey on the way (yup, we know it's rushed, we're ok with that). Here's the problem: I'm having difficulty getting accomodation for Corfe and it seems the 3 places I've looked at (Morton's & Norden & Ammonite) all want a non-refundable deposit (Morton's doesn't really ask for it on the website but their rates are higher). I like Norden's, but they are farther out than the other 2 and since we're on foot it makes getting to the hillside to take morning shots that much more of a hassle. But still, I might persist and do it anyway, if I can get a room, and if I'm convinced it's worthwhile. So, should I keep persisting and somehow try to take my photos or should I go somewhere else altogether? I'm looking for sugggestions. Should I stay or should I go? I need to know if Corfe photos might be sellable to my market patrons or is there something better to shoot in the region between Thornbury & London (we'll already have visited Stonehenge, Glastonbury, and Bath). My patrons like old castles, evocative landscapes, etc. Corfe seemed ideal, if I can get some mist in the shot. It's the lodging that seems to be the main problem.
