      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.

      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

      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?

      Trip To The Cotswolds - Where to Stay

      Gloucestershire Sep 16, 2012 at 11:58 PM

      Hi,
      Plan to be in the Cotswolds on the night of the 25th of October 2012. The objective is to see the countryside, wade in the rivers, see the architecture of the area, enjoy some good meals and generally while away some time.........
      The plan is to: -
      # Train to Oxford on the 25th Morning
      # Spend about 4 hours in Oxford. Rent a car there for a day and drive into the Cotswolds
      # Would like to see Bourton on the water, The Slaughters, Chipping Camden (And maybe even Bibury) (Wonder if thats too much for 1pm on 25th to 1pm on 26th )
      # Back to London in the shortest possible time (via oxford or otherwise)

      We are on a short holiday and we may never come back to this part of the world/UK again and hence the hunger to see as much as possible.....

      ## Is the above doable....
      ## Any views on which town we should put up in? Should i stay in one of these towns or in a place like Cheltenham (assumption here is that in October, night will fall very early and the small towns may have little or nothing to walk around/see/do post sun down)
      ## How long will it take us to drive from Cheltenham to Chipping Camden at about 9am on a weekday morning?

      Regards,
      Francis

    • Is overnight parking a problem when staying for a week in September?

      Bourton on the Water Aug 21, 2011 at 5:48 PM

      We plan on staying in Burton on the Water in September for a week, and our accommodations don't provide parking. I've read several posts by people complaining about the difficulty and expense of parking. Will we be able to find free street parking while we are staying here? If not, what will our options be for paid parking that is convenient to the center of the village? We will need to park overnight, and also while we are in the village during the day. Are there any provisions made for visitors who are staying for an extended period, rather than just for the day? Since we will be staying a week, I don't want the cost or difficulty of parking to become a big problem.

      Cheap-ish accommodation for a group in the Cotswolds

      Gloucestershire Aug 9, 2010 at 3:51 AM

      Hi,
      I am trying to arrange a New Year retreat for my social club.
      Does anyone know of accommodation in the Cotswolds (or maybe you can suggest somewhere else) that would meet my requirements?

      We are looking for accommodation for probably about 6-10 people. We would like to keep the costs down as our club is for 18-30 year olds. We are looking at about £25 pppn. We will probably require a mixture of twin/triple/multiple and double accommodation. B&B or self catering is fine. Looking for about 3 nights - Friday 31st Dec to Mon 2nd Jan 2011.

      I would really appreciate any suggestion and I am struggling to find much accommodation in the Cotswolds at all.
