      We are visiting London in November. We are a group of 60+ year old women. We like a bit of fun and music and good food. We will be staying in the Kensington area of London. 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?

      Off-Peak Day Return question

      England Feb 2, 2016 at 3:49 AM

      I understand that the off-peak tickets are only valid after 9:30 in the morning. But I haven't been able to find out if they are also bound to a specific time in the afternoon. Can they be used on any train when going back? Or is there a certain rush hour, when all the commuters travel back and the off-peak ticket is not valid? I don't want to be bound to a specific train, but the difference between this ticket and an anytime return is more than 11 GBP so I'm thinking about getting it. This is for the London-Cambridge-London trains.

      Thank you for your help.

    • Good bases for family trip

      Scotland 23 hours ago

      My husband and I are traveling with our 11 and 6 year old boys to Scotland for 2 weeks in June and I need your help to put this trip together!
      Aside from traveling days we'll have 16 full days in Scotland. We want to spend our first 3 days in Edinburgh and then we want to rent a car and spend the rest of our trip in the Highlands. I was thinking we could spend 2 nights in the Isle of Skye and for the rest of the trip I was hoping we could divide the time in two, one part in the western highlands and one on the eastern side. Could you recommend two good locations where we could rent houses or cottages to use as a base?
      We are looking for rentals in very scenic and quaint places.
      We want to be able to do daily drives to see beautiful scenery, wildlife, nature, villages, castles and just get a taste of life in the Highlands.
      We'll try to go to the Highland games in Oban on June 26th.
      Thanks for all comments and advise!

      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 Yesterday

      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.

      Hi there folks. Would first of all like to say I AM taking this very seriously, I will be fully prepared and fully kitted up. I have 4 weeks planning and getting mu kit together with 2 weeks left. I am going to attempt doing all 6 official ascents to the Summit of Snowdon. Starting May 19th to the 23rd 2014. I am physically ready but still training in preparation. The logistics of my kit took 2 weeks of planning and although some people think my kit may be over the top, I do not care as I will be prepared for almost any scenario. I have to do 2 routes on the same day and was planning to do the Snowdon ranger and the Rhyd Ddu path starting at 8am, straight up and down, of course depending on weather. Not doing this to prove a point, just set myself a personal challenge. My facebook page is Snowdonia challenge May 2014 absolute any advice is welcome or if you fancy joining me on any of the routes, please do shout up, thanks Steve

      We will be traveling in June from Dublin to Holyhead and then on via train towards Birmingham. We are wondering if making a reservation for the train is advisable. Problems I see with this are delays in the ferry and the length of disembarkation at Holyhead (we are US citizens). We'd prefer to make train reservations but aren't sure how much time we'd need to catch the train. Any experience info or advice would be great!
