      Accommodations

      London Apr 7, 2014 at 3:40 PM

      Tossing around the idea of picking up a pair of tickets to the Monty Python show at the O2 in July, most probably on the 20th. My son (27) and I (57) would be attending together, and spending 4 or 5 days in London, arriving by air to either Heathrow or Gatwick. Looking for suggestions for accommodations - easy access from/to the airport would be nice, easy access to the O2 (tube okay) even better; room doesn't need to be 5 star, just clean and safe - hotel, hostel, b&b all okay. Thanks!

      holiday with 1-2 yr old

      Cornwall Yesterday

      Dear all, a friend of mine from Germany just mentioned that she'd like to visit Cornwall this year. She worries it would be too stressful and expensive with the long journey and a little girl, about 18 months old. I'd like to reassure her, having had a brilliant time there last year in Penzance. But I guess much of what I enjoyed, including the sleeper train, wouldn't be so easy with a baby!! And they'd be travelling from Germany. So I thought I'd just try asking if anyone more clued up than me has any advice / recommendations? L

      Harwich cruise logistics

      London Apr 7, 2014 at 10:13 AM

      I'm looking at the logistics for a Harwich - Copenhagen cruise. It's been some time since I've been in London, but never found the trains too difficult. Any suggestions my thoughts of staying a few days in London, then taking the train to Harwich in the AM to board the ship? Or would it be better to travel the day before and overnight in Harwich just to be on the safe side of the trip?

      At the end I'm debating on taking Easyjet (or other) from Copenhagen back to London to attempt at some round trip savings on air fare from SAN in the US as opposed to two one-way trips. Thoughts from those that travel Europe frequently?

      Hi

      I am going to be travelling from dover to calais in about 2 weeks by car.
      I will be travelling with my cousin and my 2 and a half month baby.
      I would just like to know what the check in procedures are at dover before boarding and in calais when getting off the boat.

      As i am travelling with a baby would just like to make it as easy as possible. The car will be rammed with all my baby stuff, so does anyone know if they stop all cars and search.
      Its been a while since i travelled by ferry so am not sure whether procedures have changed or not. I know security procedures and everything are tighter now adays.

      Any help from fellow parents on the procedures of checking in would be greatly appreciated.

      Thanks in advance!

      Our hotel is ~1 mile away and we plan to take a taxi from the restaurant to the hotel.

      First, how safe is that area around the restaurant?

      Next, and more importantly, how readily available are Taxi's @ ~ 8-9PM when we should be concluding dinner?

      If anyone has any suggestions about booking a taxi or whether they should be easily/readily available by the restaurant...it would be appreciated.

      Ferry from Dover to Calais/Dunkirk

      by oRi_5 Online Now Jul 8, 2011 at 5:40 AM

      Hi,

      We're going to be driving down a car from UK across Europe to Malta and we're going to be on a tight schedule.

      I've found all the details of the ferries that cross from Dover to Calais or Dunkirk. However, I'm wondering if it's better to book online or you can just get there and get a ticket from there? It will be for 2 passengers and a car.

      I know that the common reasoning is that if we're on a tight schedule we should book online to make sure we get on - but my worry is that we might arrive too late (or too early) and then won't be able to change the ticket.

      Any advice?

      Also, I've read you need to be there a certain amount of time before hand to check-in. How much before?

      We're currently trying to decide between P&O (to Calais) or Norfolk Lines (to Dunkirk)....or if it pays us (time wise) the eurotunnel.

      We would be travelling on a Friday (15th July) so I don't know if there would be any weekend rush or something that would cause delays.

      Also, we would be driving down from Newark to Dover - and calculated about 3.5hrs... is this reasonable?

      Thanks to anyone who can help!!!

      When I am in London next month I thought I would take a day trip to Dover (to visit the Castle). Easy, or so I thought. I used google and clicked on both the Trainline and Southern Railways website. So far, so good. Except.....

      a) which station do I start out from?

      b) which station do I want to arrive at for accessing the Castle - Priory or Court?

      Seems a very expensive trip - £32 odd return.

      Bus I gather is cheaper but takes longer? Is the bus arrival point any more convenient for my ultimate goal?

      This is jolly bad news for all budget-minded travellers. Speed Ferries has entered administration, and as one of their open ticket holders I was informed that the administrators have failed to find a buyer, so the company and the crossings are going down the drain. Prices of crossings are already on the rise as the main, perhaps the only, challenger of the cartel has ceased to exist. RIP Speedferries, thanks for the services done to competition.

      If it is possible, which one should be my first stop, if my journey begins in London? What is the best route and means of transportation?

      We are planning on travelling in the late summer and since we have never visited Europe, outside of London, plan on flying in to Paris for a quick look-around and head to Dover later that day. We want to spend one night there and take a cruise starting the next day via Iceland and Eastern Canada ending up in New York. Does the Eurorail from Paris stop before it gets to London? Is there a train to get us back out to Dover once we end up in London? My preference would be to disembark at Calais and take surface transportation to Dover. Is that possible?
