      Does anyone know if you can store suitcases at the Heathrow airport in London? We have a train ride after our landing in London and want to leave our luggage for a subsequent cruise for a few days at the airport in a secure facility? Is there such a place that someone has experience with?

      London travel advisory - Bus strikes.

      London Jan 28, 2015 at 3:49 PM

      I realise this is not a question and I have posted the information in the relevant London transportation page but I post it here additionally in the hope it may save travellers inconvenience as people may not see it elsewhere.

       

      Following a number of strikes already this month the Unite union have decided yet again to seriously disrupt public transport in London with a series of three strikes affecting the buses. They are planned for 5th, 13th and 16th February from 0001 hours to 2359 hours on each occasion. This will obviously have a knock-on effect on night buses both prior to and after the strikes.

       

      Travellers are advised to check and replan their journey if necessary. Details of how to do this can be found on the Government website

       

      http://www.tfl.gov.uk/

       

      As always, I shall update this if the situation changes.

       

      Hope this assists,

       

      fergy.

      Best way to Travel between London and Rugby

      London Feb 11, 2015 at 7:41 AM

      I will be staying in London during March, but will be going to Rugby for a few days. What is the best and cheapest way to travel from London to Rugby and return? Is it better going by train or coach? I don't have the exact hours I want to travel, but I know I will need to go to Rugby on March 4th and return to London on March 9th. Is it better to order a return ticket from the start or each way seperately? What about where to buy the ticket, is it best to do it beforehand on the internet or just buy the tickets when I am travelling? Would a coach be cheaper than train? Are there any cheaper options? Besides that, I would need to go from Rugby to Birmingham and return and from London to Wareham, Dorset. What are my cheapest travel options?
      Thanks,
      Hessel

    • Walking around Victoria at night

      Hi, I'm a little bit concerned about walking around Victoria station at night. I'll be at The White Ferry House hostel on 2 Sutherland street and need to take a train at 6 am at the station. I'll be walking white a huge travel bag plus huge luggage but there is no bus between them and a taxi can't be happy to take me so close. Does anyone think that should be a problem to walk around there at that time with lots of luggage? Thank you all for your help =]

      Advantage to purchase in advance question

      London Feb 8, 2015 at 12:56 PM

      What is the advantage to purchasing a ticket on the First Great Western train to Cornwall in advance? I will still have to go to some kind of ticket place to pick it up won't I? I would think it would be better to get the ticket when I get there even if it cost a little more. Then I wouldn't have to worry about getting to the station and to the right place in time.

      I am staying at the Best Western Shaftesbury Paddington Court which I thought had a possibility of pick-up at Heathrow. How can I find out about getting this.

      How far is this hotel from Paddington Station?

      Staying outside of London

      London Feb 15, 2015 at 6:51 AM

      We will be visiting London this summer and would like to explore a bit outside of the city as well. Looking for some recommendations on areas to stay that might be a good jumping off point to not only spend a few days in London, but also explore some towns outside. Best case scenario would be a 30-45 minute train ride into London direct. We have been looking at train routes and such, but would appreciate any input. Thanks in advance and we can't wait for the trip!

      I'm traveling to London this summer, with my family (two kids from 7 - 10).
      What area should I look to stay in if I want to be centrally located to the major sites with good access to the tube?
      I've so far concentrated my searches to Chelsea/Kensington and Westminster, should that be it, or any other areas I should consider?

    • 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

      I'd like to stay within easy reach of Greenwich but in a nice safe area. I've looked at hotel near Blackheath overlooking the heath but the reviews are terrible. Also looked at Docklands but this is quite pricey.

      Anyone have any suggestions?

      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
