I am attending a concert at Finsbury Park in May next year on a Friday night.
I expect this concert to finish around 11pm, I am having a sudden panic of how I am going to turn back to my hotel.

Hey guys !
I'm going to spend Christmas in London for the first time in three weeks and I'm very excited. However I was wondering if anyone had ideas about how and where I could spend those few days ? I would like to visit or to do non-mainstream things aside from all the "tourist" things everyone does, I'm sure there are a lot of interesting stuffs to do in London that are not well-known. Thanks :D

Hi. I'm planning to take a vacation to the UK next year, and I was just wondering how to get around the city. Do we have to use the bus, take a cab, or go underground? Thanks!
I know this my be a ridiculous request, however I am asking anyway. About 25 years ago when I was in London I visited a pub. This pub was no more than an hour or so out of London, While I was there, I remember someone telling me that the Vikings had landed in that very location and that it was over 1,000 years. I also remember that the seats (booths , for lack of a better word) we stone slabs. If you can help, please email me at email@example.com. My son is traveling soon and I would love for him to experience it.
I'm preparing to send my daughter to London for a semester. Any tips to make her transition easier? Perhaps a 'dont leave home without' suggestion? This is her first trip to Europe. Thank you!!
Only going to be there for a day- staying in Pancras. Really want a day in the life of a local!!! Been 3 times prior and seen big sights already.
I'm a US citizen flying from San Francisco to Mumbai via London Heathrow. My layover is from 12 noon till 9 PM (9 hours). I booked my flight through Virgin Atlantic directly but my connecting flight from LHR to Mumbai is on a codeshare airline (Jet Airways). I've found out that I'll be able to check my bags all the way through from SFO to Mumbai.
I was also told that I can do an airside transfer from Terminal 3 to 4 at LHR using a terminal shuttle. My question is, can I leave the airport and visit London for a few hours while I'm there? I've read forums that mention (strangely enough) that Virgin Atlantic doesn't allow you to leave the airport during a layover. From what I know I don't need a tourist or transit visa to enter the UK.
If possible I would like to go to Windsor Castle and maybe have a meal around there before coming back to Terminal 4 directly. I won't be having a big carry-on bag either. Just a laptop bag. Has anyone been through this recently?
I'm proposing to my girlfriend in Central London in February. I want to plan a scavenger hunt proposal where she has to follow clues to find me and the ring at the end. I have a list of great places in central to add to the list, but I'm conscious about the almost certain bad weather in February. Can anyone recommend places that are indoor that I could add to my scavenger hunt in Central London? This way I could make it half indoor and half outdoor. Thanks.
I would like to know, where is the best place in London to go shopping?
Thanks for any advice
I will be arriving in London Heathrow, American Airlines terminal 3 and connecting to Dubai in British Airways terminal 5. I have 3 hours layover. A friend in London wants to go to the airport to see me. Where should I tell her to meet me? Will I have time to meet her?
We are a group of some 10 men, visiting a friend in London. We are an easygoing, relaxed bunch. Primarily interested in good cocktails and good music. Can you recommend a bar which has more or less the following features?
- Bar welcomes larger groups without letting them wait on a queue outside for years and years
- They know how to make decent martini cocktails
- They stay open late
The bar does not need to be very fancy...
Thank you very much for your help!
Hi! I want to go to London for a week, so which places I must see in that short time?
