    • Aberfoyle of Callander

      Aberfoyle Dec 19, 2014 at 4:43 AM

      Hello, Thanks everyone for previous assistance. Still having trouble deciding where would be the best place for easy walking - not hiking, as we have to rely on public transport. Have 6 days to experience the countryside in June 2015 and looked at Aberfoyle, Callander or Balloch (transport maybe more accessible) Also thought maybe spend 4 days walking and then travel to Isle of Mull and experience a little of island life for 2 days instead of 6 days in one place. Of course 1 day would be taken up travelling. Don't know the area as we are from Australia. Appreciate any suggestions or advice. Thank you

      Peppa Pig World

      Hampshire Nov 30, 2014 at 9:35 AM

      Hi! I'm preparing a 4 days break to Peppa Pig World with my children (next may). I would like to know if there is any advantage buying tickets in advance via web. Also If tickets allow the entrance to Paulton's Park and if is it good for 3 years old children, and any other advice you can give me. We'll be using a rental car. Is there any other good attraction near there?
      Thanks a lot.

    • Souvenir UK car registration plate from London

      London Dec 5, 2014 at 3:42 PM

      I plan to get a license plate with my personal lettering as a souvenir from ‪‎London‬. Where to get it from?

      The plate need not be original but a replica close to original would do. I like to collect the plates with my custom lettering from countries I visit. Is it possible to get one from London? Where?
      Thanks for the help.

    • connection times at London Heathrow

      London Dec 16, 2014 at 9:03 AM

      We are flying from Madrid departure 0820hrs and arriving Heathrow 0950hrs thro American but operated by Iberia. We are leaving Heathrow at 1120hrs and arriving O'Hare 1345hrs thro American but operated by BA. We have 1hr and 30mins between flights - is this enough time? Both flights arrive and depart from T5. If time is tight can we ask a member of staff for assistance in order to connect with flights ? Does anyone know the procedure for a missed flight connection? We booked the flights thro American Airlines. I assume we just both clear security and not immigration.We are both UK citizens.

      Dep Madrid 0820hrs arr Heathrow 0950hrs on American 8816 operated by Iberia. Leave Heathrow 1120hrs arr O'Hare 1345hrs on American 6195 operated by BA. Connections at Terminal 5 with 1hr 30 mins spare - will this be enough time. If time is tight what are my options - not going till May so times may change again. When we made this booking we had a two hour window but not now. Can i get a member of staff to hurry us thro if necessary? Do i have to just go thro security and not immigration. We are UK citizens.

      We will be staying near Queensway tube station. What is this area like in the evening. Are there many nice bars and restaurants about? How does it compare with Paddington in terms of quantity and quality of local bars and restaurants, safety walking about in the late evening, transport links to Victoria station. Many thanks in advance to anyone taking the time to respond?

      Rail and rental car question

      London Dec 19, 2014 at 2:40 PM

      I want to travel from London to Truro by train and rent a car from Enterprise on March 17th. I want to be picked up at the train station and dropped off at the airport. The Enterprise man's email does not give me a confirmation number - he seems to want me to buy a ticket on the train first. The National Rail Enquiries - Journey Planner will only give me train times up to 2015 March 12th. But www.thetrainline.com/‎

      is perfectly willing to sell me a ticket for the 17th. How can I get a car reservation confirmation without a train time (is there a website I can go to?), and should I go ahead and buy a ticket through 'thetrainline' people or wait a week and get one from National Rail?

    • What's the fastest airside method for transferring from terminal 3 to 4?

      Heathrow Dec 1, 2014 at 7:44 AM

      I have a Virgin Atlantic - Delta code share flight arriving from Bombay to LHR terminal 3 and LHR - Detroit (USA) from terminal 4 since Delta is in terminal 4. I have a valid US visa so I "think" I can transit airside without a transit visa even if I am an Indian passport holder and not in the DATV list . See: gov.uk/government/uploads/sy...
      Question is what is the best way to connect between terminal 3 and 4 without picking the wrong train, subway, etc. ?

We're travelling in early April of this coming year and would love to spend a night in Loo but dare not rent a car as we're from the US and the roads are daunting to us. Can anyone assist in public transportation information to Loo from St. Ives?

    • London-Salisbury/Bath-Cardiff-Edinburgh-Dublin

      United Kingdom Dec 7, 2014 at 4:40 PM

      I have a convention excuse to visit London in April 2015, and since Husband and I have never been off North America we're looking into making a trip of it. I tried to build-my-own tour, but I couldn't get it under $10,000 USD for both of us for 14 days with airfare. H suggests looking into tours, but we can't find many that include Cardiff. It seems the biggest price-busters are car rental for the London-to-Salisbury/Bath-to-Cardiff-to-Edinburgh transportation ($420 USD total), London and Edinburgh hotels (£105 and £125 respectively, breakfast included), and estimated food budgets (£60 per person a day in London and Edinburgh, £50 in Salisbury/Bath and Cardiff, and €75 in Dublin). Am I grossly overestimating food costs in those locals for two meals (every hotel chosen has breakfast included)? Any suggestions for reasonable hotels in London and Edinburgh that are cheaper, or transportation options that will suit our needs and be more affordable than a car rental? Or suggestions of tour companies we should be looking at? Thanks!

      Travel from Heathrow to Penzance

      England Yesterday

      What would be the best way to get from Heathrow to Penzance? I have looked at getting the train into Padington, staying the night thn getting the train to Penzance the following day. It is quite expensive and adds the cost of accommodation in London. I then looked at staying overnight at Heathro and hiring a car to drive to Penzance. One car hire company has a drop-off point in Pnzance. This is half the cost of the train from Paddinngton option. How long would it take to drive from Heathrow to Penzance? The bus looks like an all-day affair and not that appealing. I am going walking the Coastal path from Penzance to Falmouh at end of May 2015. Any ideas/advice would be appreciated. Thank you. Jenni

    • Travelling to London August 2015. Cost of living ??

      London Dec 11, 2014 at 2:14 PM

      Hello everyone, how are you?

      I'm travelling to London for a 7 days holiday, next summer (August) with a friend. And as I lived there from 1996 to 2007, I know how expensive London can be for a tourist, compared to any other city in Europe (unless, of course, you from Norway or Japan). So this time I'll go as a tourist, as there are things I never did or visited when I lived there.

      Since it's been 7 years I left London (by the way I miss London so much), I don't actually know what is the cost of living in London for a budget tourist at this moment in time. I've already booked the flight, accommodation and London Pass, for London attractions + Travelcard which costed me a total of €700 (about £560) all inclusive.

      Having done that (flight, accommodation, pass and travel card), what remains is food, drink and entertainment. So I was thinking on a (low) budget of £60/£80 (€76/€100) per day (that's £420(€530) for 7 days). What do you think? Can we live on or spend our holiday with this budget for a week? We obviously won't be spending £60/£80 a day, everyday. Surely we'll go clubbing a couple of times, some evenings we'll go to a pub or a bar with music and stuff like that, and then we'll get some souvenirs for friends and family back home!

      Also we'd like to go to see Stonehenge (if we can squeeze some time in), on a day trip. What is the fastest way to get there and how much do you does it costs?

      Thank you in advance friends!

      Take care !!!
