Hello everyone,I will be taking my niece to Brighton and leave her there for a month for her language course. I will stay with a friend in Brighton for 2 days but don't feel comfortable staying for longer so I will go to London for the last 2 days of my stay on the 1st and 2nd of July. I am so stressed though, as I have no clue where to stay, what to do or where to go on my own. I've been to London before and loved it but I was with a local then, plus it was years ago. I will feel so stressed now, London is huge and it scares me to be there on my own. Or am I crazy? I just don't like being in a huge city on my own. Thanks so much for any advice on how to find someone to hang out with for 2 days.
Can anyone reccomend reasonably priced accommodation in central London? Preferably around Picadilly square or
Russel square, thanks
If one wants to travel during August, which month should he or she start looking for 'budget' flight tickets?
Is there a general 'rule' ? How does the ticket price for a given journey,with a given airlines, say London to Paris flight with British airways, change with time?
I want to know how to determine the best way to pay for public transportation as a London tourist. I don't know which zones I'll need. I don't understand the list of charges for the oyster cards. What do they mean? How can I figure this out? What about the travelcard? Why is this so complicated? In the past it has been simple; I ordered a London Travel Pass for a cetain number of days which entitled me to use all of the public transportation no matter the zone or time. What's with the complications? Do you want people to visitand spend their dollars?
We are arriving in Terminal 3 from the US at 10:45 p.m. I notice the last tube out is at 11:48 p.m. Will we be able to make this train, or will we have to spend the big bucks on a taxi?
I'll be going to London for a week in mid-September and so far I don't have much of a plan. I don't really know what's worth seeing or what I would like and I'd appreciate some help deciding on what to do.
I know a few must sights like
but that's about it. Any tips for other must-see sights or great activities?
And maybe even some more recommendations for me in particular? I mostly like
But I'm also open for other things that are interesting or fun
PS: Is there a site where you can schedule sightseeing or something like it? I want to avoid trying to visit sites on opposite ends of town
Thanks in advance!
Any recommendations for this ? 3-4 day break envisaged.

Hi guys, my parents are flying over here from Canada and I thought a trip to the Lake District might be nice...however I've noticed that trains with East Midlands only go to either Bootle (Cumbria) or Oxenholme...which seem about an hour drive from the National Park. Do you have any tips on how to get closer to the park? Any recommendations on where to stay?
Thanks so much!
Would you please advise me on what would be the best clothes to bring and what shoes for a 2 week stay this June?

My husband and I are planning our first trip to London (and Paris) I don't know where to start booking my trip as the internet is full of information overload. I am not familiar with all the different areas of London. What is the best area to stay in for seeing all the sites, safe and hopefully not over the top expensive. Can anyone suggest some nice hotels? Would it be better to rent a vacation flat instead? (any suggestions for Paris would be good too, but I can ask those in the Paris forum)

I have an 8 hour layover between two long haul flights (11am-7pm). I am arriving in/leaving from T5. I would really like to take a quick shower during this stop over. l know that there are hotels landside and airside (T3) as well as lounge options.
My questions is: what is the easiest option? Will I even be allowed to go from T5 to T3 airside (and what would that entail-- ie trips through security, time, etc). Alternatively, how much of a hassle would it be to go landside? Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
