Can anyone suggest a place, either in the afternoon or early evening where we will be treated to good food and a bit of a dance or maybe a bit of a show?

      Were only going to be in London for 3 days, then, Eurostar to Paris.
      So, we'll arrive fairly early (from the States) Monday and thought a rasy series of Public bus rides that afternoon might whet our appetite for a re-visit.
      Which route (or series or routes) would y'all suggest for an overview of London? Numbers? We already have our Oyster passes.
      PS: We are taking an all day tour to Oxford and The Cotswolds for Tuesday and a walking tour (of London highlights)

    • T5 to T3 cross uk border?

      Heathrow Feb 5, 2016 at 10:03 AM

      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

      Heathrow Jan 12, 2016 at 9:59 AM

      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?

      Heathrow to Stamford Bridge/White Hart Lane?

      London Jan 19, 2016 at 6:02 PM

      Hello - in early March I have a 24 hr layover in London. I land at Heathrow at 1pm and there are a couple of Premier League matches that kick-off at 3pm, one at Stamford Bridge and the other at White Hart Lane (I'm deciding between the two). I've always wanted to go to a match, but its never worked out timing wise - this might be my only chance for awhile.
      However, my window for making it to the game is very tight. We're talking about landing at Heathrow, getting my luggage, getting through customs, getting into London, leaving stuff at a hotel and getting to the stadium A very tight window.

      My question is this even plausible? Obviously Chelsea's ground is closer to Heathrow than White Hart Lane, which is a factor here. Can you even get to matches late? In the US its fairly common, but I don't know about the UK.

      I know they'll be questions about tickets, but I do have some colleagues who can arrange that, so I'm not concerned there.

      Thanks.

Security would not let him through - told him for a month's stay in the US he should have more cash that this. Really?? Is this possible? Has anyone ever been asked how much cash they have. He is now asking me for a few hundred so this is not an issue when he tries again. I'm finding this odd. I've never heard of anything like this. Have you?

But I am a little nervous about actually doing because first of all I have never been in England before and I struggle with social anxiety and depression. I think going on a holiday alone could be very beneficial for me because I have had some very rough 4 years and feel like a little get away from everything and everyone is what I need. I am currently in school and graduate in June, and I am 19 years old. I dont know what I want to do with my life, and I hope a little get away like that, maybe could inspire me and hopefully teach me something about myself and who I am. Have anyone travelled alone before? And have anyone travelled alone to London before? I could really use some tips.
