    • Is a 2 Hour connection time (arrival and departure both from T5) sufficient ?

      Heathrow Aug 17, 2015 at 9:52 AM

      I will have a 2 hour 10 minute connection time between my flights (both of them arriving/departing T5). I will be traveling with an infant, will be on Business Class tickets (not sure if LHR Fast Track is any help?). Is this doable?

      BA-143 DEL to LHR and BA-193 LHR to DFW. (It seems these flights will undergo a schedule change from their current timing which allows a fair connection time to a new time which makes this connection tricky for me)

      Fullers brewery tour

      London Aug 13, 2015 at 1:47 AM

      A question for women (or men wearing skirts..). My husband red somewhere one shouldn´t use too "fluttery" (or something like that) clothes at brewery tour. I only wear skirts (if you don´t count walking trips with the dogs..) and my skirts are really long. All my summer skirts are quite thin, and I´d rather not take jeans skirt with me (we have only hand luggage) because it´s so warm and takes a lot of place at bag. We are leaving tomorrow.
      Has anyone been there with skirt? How strikt is this thing? Could I go with quite narrow jersey skirts, even it is not a "pencil skirt", it can "flutter" a LITTLE.. Or maybe I could take some rubber bands and tighten the tail? I don´t find info on their page, and I must pack up my bag tonight, since we will leave at noon tomorrow.

    • Heathrow Terminal 4 to Charing Cross - train or underground - connections?

      London Aug 10, 2015 at 4:38 PM

      Hi - my son (*fit, strong, healthy & 20yrs old!) is travelling with a suitcase and small backpack, arriving at Terminal 4 at 5.35am. He needs to get to Charing Cross to catch a train to Kent. What's the best way please? I can't recall what the changeover at Paddington is like to get to the Bakerloo line - stairs? Escalators? Or is the underground better using Piccadilly Line to Leicester Sq then change to drop down to Charing Cross on the Northern Line? Again, can't recall - is this a change with loads of stairs? I figure it will be rush-hour by the time he is crossing London too, by the time he clears customs and gets luggage etc, so this is probably worth factoring in. He's arriving from New Zealand, so long-haul. Thanks :-)

      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.

      Many thanks,

We would also love some recommendations on specific pubs and restaurants in the region to frequent for drinks and dinner as well as some advice on known haunted locations to visit....
