      Advice on Burslem, Please?

      Stoke-upon-Trent Apr 19, 2014 at 1:04 AM

      Hi. It looks like I'm going to have to relocate from the East Midlands to Burslem and I really need the (sensible) advice of Stoke residents about a particular neighbourhood.

      It's the Joseph Street/Billinge Street/Lyndhurst Street neighbourhood, on the north side of Newcastle Street.

      Is it a bearable area to live in? Or does it have any sort of a reputation for stuff like antisocial student behaviour or any other kind of antisocial behaviour?

      I must say it looks pretty seedy on Google Street View, but then that's Stoke for you, isn't it? It's an unpretentious, scuffed sort of post-industrial city and famous for it, but the folk who live there are supposed to be okay. Mind you, I appreciate that areas can change very swiftly indeed these days due to economic migration, so frankly I don't know what to assume about that particular neighbourhood.

      Can anyone shed any light?

      Many thanks.

      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!

      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?

      cheapst way to use tube fot 8 days of travel fro Swiss Cottage (Zone2) in to Central London

      London Apr 21, 2014 at 10:41 PM

      I'm thinking of staying at a hostel at Swiss Cottage, but it seems rather far away. However, the price is lower than many closer to the city center. So, I would have to make my transportation cheaper as I would likely use the Tube several times a day during my 8-day stay. I am arriving and leaving from Heathrow as well so if there is a transporation pass of some kind that would cover my situation and make it it worth saving staying out a little further, that would be great.

      Any suggestions?

      Thanks

      Not a question, just a heads-up - more RMT Tube disruption.

      London Apr 19, 2014 at 3:58 AM

      The RMT Union has just announced that they are to hold another two of their strikes from 2100 hours on Monday 28th April for 48 hours and from 2100 hours on Monday 5th May for 72 hours. As always, these are designed to cause maximum disruption by being during the working week and will affect both Londoners and visitors alike. There will be a huge strain on other forms of public transport so travellers are advised to plan well ahead if they are visiting during these periods.

      Irealise this information will rapidly be pushed down the pages but I thought I would post it here as well as having posted it in the London travel guide in both Overview and Travel Sections. Full details are here should you want them.

      tfl.gov.uk/info-for/media/pr...

      I shall attempt to keep this information as current as possible should there be any changes. Hope this assists,

      fergy.

      Hello, I have a short 1.5 day stopover in London while traveling back home. We are arriving at Gatwick at noon and leave Monday at 2pm. Transportation from Gatwick to our hotel on Mayfair has been arranged via private car. We are interested in taking advantage of the 241 deal on Sunday for Tower of London, London eye, and London Transportation Museum. Where is the best place to purchase a valid 1 day travel card that is valid for the 241 promotion? We are staying near the Green Park station. We are free Saturday afternoon after we land and can purchase the 1 day travel card then. Thank you in advance.

      I lived in London for 5 years growing up and I'm excited to show the kids some of the sites. We will be back for a longer visit once they are older.

Trying to decide if should do 2nd class or 1st class. Main thoughts are on getting 1st class is that for the longer trips seems like would be nicer and when in London may be using trains at same times as commuters and was told better chance of getting seats. Would love to hear experiences from other travelers who have used a Brit Rail in the two classes. Thanks.

      What are the options for best nightlife in eastbourne during easter weekend

    • A trip in early may to London, looking for advise.

      London Apr 16, 2014 at 2:49 PM

      Hi,

      Me and my wife are looking for our first vacation in London at the start of may.

      We are currently debating on how long should the trip be, and what should we expect the daily expenses to be about (so we can see how much the trip will approximately cost us).

      Currently, the flight will cost about 1500$ - 1700$ (i need extra room for my legs).

      The hotel is about 255$ per night (it's near the London bridge area and has an 8.8 booking rating), and that was the cheapest i found for may that is in the city and has good reviews.

      The trip is somewhere between 3.5 to 7 full days (excluding flights).

      Our main concern is the price and length of the trip. We would like the trip to be:
      a. not running around all day long.
      b. to get a good feel of London. (i.e. we would like to walk in the parks, weather permitting, go to 1 or 2 theater plays and we like some culture and museums but not artsy fartsy ones)
      c. not go overboard spending-wise. (yet not skimp on essential parts of the experience).
      d. hopefully enjoy just the right amount of time :)

      Would love to hear your input.

      Thanks.

Canadians don't need a visa to enter the UK for less then three months. So at the London airport, they held me for 18 hours and sent my right back to Canada, after taking my fingerprints, and questioning me. so now a year has passed and i have gotten married. and want to visit my spouses family. I fear a repeat of those excruciating 18 hours, will occur.
