      Short connection Terminal 5 and Terminal 2

      Heathrow May 4, 2015 at 8:36 PM

      Hi everyone,

      I have booked flights with Singapore Airlines from Edinburgh to Singapore next month. I arrive at Heathrow Terminal 5 at 0925on a BA flight and leave from Terminal 2 with Singapore Airlines at 1130 so just over 2 hours connection time.
      Will this be enough? I'm not sure if I can check my suitcase through from Edinburgh as I don't think there is a Singapore Airlines check in there.(The BA ticket was bought through them though.)
      I'm panicking a little as, although I know Singapore Airlines will be obliged to get me back if I don't make the connection, all the later flights seem to be full and I have an onward connection to New Zealand that I need to get.
      I'd really appreciate any advice. 3

    • Can we undergo US security checks at Heathrow ?

      Heathrow May 10, 2015 at 7:58 AM

      I'll be traveling from Mumbai, India to Gainesville, Florida. For that I have to board a flight at Mumbai which will drop me at Heathrow. I have layover time of about 8 hours at Heathrow, from where I'll be traveling to Miami. And from Miami to Gainesville. But the layover at Miami is only 2 hours, which from what I've heard, is very less for completing immigration checks. So, I was wondering if there is any provision of conducting US security checks at Heathrow instead of Miami?

      During the search for this answer, I came across this post. This looks to be 2014 news. I'm not sure though, whether this has been implemented or not.

      Could anyone please confirm the same?

      Or, is it possible to complete immigration checks at Miami airport within 2 hours ?

      Thanks.

      Does the Visitor In Transit visa allow me to leave the airport?

      Heathrow May 5, 2015 at 3:06 AM

      Hello,

      I have a 15 hr overnight layover at Heathrow and I am thinking to go and check out London since it will be my first time there.

      My questions are:

      1. Am I allowed to leave the airport with the transit visa and then return to continue my flight?
      2. Do the trains or buses to and from the airport operate 24/7?
      3. Is there a place that you recommend a first time visitor to check out at night? (A mall, street, park etc.)

Does anyone know a good place to park on the outskirts of London so we can catch the train in. We could catch the train from Exeter but for 4 of us I would need to sell the house to pay for it.

    • Accomodation between Heathrow Airport and tourist attractions on a budget

      London May 11, 2015 at 7:53 AM

      My husband and I will visit London between 14-19 June. Our budget is about 500 pounds for a comfortable room with attached bathroom. Its good to be near a station as we intend to buy the suggested Oyster Card. It should be easy to get to Heathrow airport conveniently and cheaply. It should also be easy to get to tourist spots like Buckingham Palace, London Bridge. Surrounding place should have some shops like supermart or convenience store.
      We have been looking at websites but don't have much idea of the locations and the safety about the distrIct. Any map of London with train stations indicated? Hope to hear some replies soon :)

      Car rental

      London Apr 26, 2015 at 5:46 PM

      Hello all,

      We will be flying into UK this weekend with a 11 month old baby (stroller) and were wondering which one is a better and cheaper option to use - Zipcar vs Subway vs (sixt.co.uk/avis/hertz)?? We get to Heathrow and need to get to Islington. Is renting a car from zipcar or any other traditional car hire make sense?

      Another transportation query - If we take the Subway, would it be easy to travel from Heathrow to Islington with a baby, stroller and our luggage or would it make sense to rent a car? Is the Subway stroller friendly?

      Thanks for your help in advance!

    • Help with plans to see greenwich in 24 hours

      by herbshopgirl Online Now Jun 2, 2009 at 9:25 AM

      Hello,
      We will be arriving in Greenwich the afternoon of Sept 6th and leaving the next day by 3:00. We will be staying overnight on the cruise ship which is docked at the Greenwich peer. So we basically have the time after dinner on the 6th and most of the day on Sept 7th.
      Is Greenwich safe to walk around at night? Any areas we should avoid?
      I think most of the sites are closed by 5:30, any "must sees" for after dinner? We were thinking we would wander around and maybe have a beer(or two) at a local pub. We like to go where the locals go and not the tourist traps.
      The next day it looks like there will be plenty to keep us busy until 3.
      Is everything within walking distance of the cruise ship, we are traveling with my parents who are in their 70's. Any particular order you would see things in?
      I guess what I am mainly asking is if you had the limited time we have, how would you spend it in Greenwich.
      Thanks for all your help,
      Susan

      Worth going to Greenwich only to see the Prime Meridian?

      by ellielou Online Now Feb 23, 2005 at 12:49 AM

      hi London/Greenwich experts, Quick question: I'm taking a 3 day trip to London in a week and a half. My traveling companion, a geographer, really wants to go to Greenwich, mainly to see the Prime Meridian. Honestly, after reading about the place, I'm not too interested in the sites there (and had no desire to go my previous 2 trips to London), esp. for such a short trip. Anyway, I'm wondering: Is it worth going to Greenwich just for the Prime Meridian? And, one more question: is it possible to get there by Tube, w/o transferring to bus or commuter train line? (I've read conflicting things on this.) And, approx how long would this take from the Kensington area? Your advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks, Ellen
