      London travel advisory - Bus strikes.

      London Yesterday

      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.

    • Oyster or travelcard?

      London Jan 21, 2015 at 12:10 PM

      Usually I've been using oyster, but this time I'll be there Wednesday-Friday and Sunday-Tuesday because I'll be spending the weekend in Oxford. Is it more sensible to buy money for oyster or a seven day travelcard? I'll be in zones 1 and 2 and I'll probably travel about 3-5 times per day.

      Harry Potter Studio tour - Query

      London Jan 14, 2015 at 2:24 AM

      I am interested in going to Harry Potter studio tour and found the official website listing price for family (2adults and 2 kids) is less than private tour operators. However, the only timeavailable from the official website is after 6pm - I wanted to know whether studio is worth a visit in the night and will I miss any outdoor settings. I youtubed some videos and found the place shown in dim light and with creepy sounds - which made me think that my younger daughter aged 5 who has some development delays may find it a problem. Anyone has views/advises on my two questions? My elder daughter who has read those 500 & 800 pages books was very excited to goto this place.

      Hello, does anyone know of any clean and not too expensive accommodation close to the Royal Marsden Hospital? I would need it for 2 to 3 months. If it's pet friendly that's even better. Thanks.

    • Will I need a Direct Airside Transit Visa to transfer from T4 to T5

      Heathrow Jan 16, 2015 at 10:56 AM

      Hi, I am a Philippine passport holder traveling to Heathrow airport, arriving at terminal 4 and with a connecting flight at terminal 5 to Toulouse, France. I am a Schengen Visa holder as well. I would just like to ask if I will still need a Direct Airside Transit Visa to transfer terminals even if I don't have baggage to claim upon arrival at terminal 4 since both bags are carry-ons. Tickets were booked separately though so I do not have a through-ticket. Thanks!

    • Transferring between T2 and T5

      Heathrow Jan 25, 2015 at 1:26 PM

      My friend is arriving at T2 (from Frankfurt) and departing for the US from T5 - different airlines and not through ticketed, as far as I can tell. So she's going to have to pick up her luggage, transfer terminals and check in. She only has two and a half hours to do so. And she's a US citizen, so presumably might be held up at immigration.
      Is this an impossible schedule? As she's transiting the airport, is there some simpler quicker way to do this than going through immigration and customs as a normal arriving passenger would, before she transfers terminals?

    • Layover in London- where to stay and taking trains?

      London Jan 13, 2015 at 7:51 PM

      Hello,

      My husband and I will be flying in to Gatwick and flying out of either Gatwick or Stansted in Mid May. We get in around 1:30pm and leave about that same time the following day. Where will be the easiest area to stay if we fly out of Gatwick and what's best if we fly out of Stansted? We are in our early 30's and in good physical condition, but will have backpacks so we don't want to have to walk too far from the train stations. We aren't too worried about doing too much sightseeing, but want to be in an area that is very walkable with good restaurants. We also want to be close to whatever transportation is easiest to get us back to the airport. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks!

      The London Pass

      London Jan 16, 2015 at 11:08 PM

      Does anyone know anything about the London Pass card? Is it worth getting? If I have already an Oyster card, does the London Pass cover travel too? Or once I have an Oyster card, maybe it isn't worth getting the London Pass. Any feedback would be welcome. What are the "must see" attractions today in London?
      Thanks,
      Hessel

    • Transfer from T5 to T3

      Heathrow Jan 14, 2015 at 12:52 AM

      Hi, we will leave from Dusseldorf with BA and arrive at T5 at 7.50AM.
      We have to transfer to T3 to catch our flight to Dallas which leaves at 9.30 AM: also BA but operated by American Airlines.
      When we booked this flight it said on the website this flight was operated by BA aswell, so we thought we could stay in T5, and 1 hour 40 min would be plenty off time!
      However checking the BA website later we found out this flight is operated by AA, and we have to transfer to T3.
      I'm very worried we won't make this transfer.
      Would anyone be so kind to explain us, maybe step by step, what's the fastest way to go to T3?
      Do i realy need to worry, or is 1 hour 40 min enough time?
      Thank you for your time and help!

      London Jan 26, 2015 at 3:45 AM

      I am looking for an indoor attraction that will keep kids occupied for 4-5 hours outside London. As I have a rental car with me, want to look for attractions that is around 1 to 1.5 hours driving distance from London. I do not want attractions within London which I have already visited or I can do later (as I live in London). Please suggest.

      Places worth visiting?

      London Jan 23, 2015 at 3:23 AM

      Hi there Virtual Tourists.
      I was wondering if you could help me out with some places that are really worth visiting in London?
      I already have a list of more tourist places I would like to visit but I'm also very interested in finding some "hidden gems".
      I'm mostly interested in stuff that involves architecture, street art and city/landscapes. I was also wondering where I could have a great view of the London skyline, if anyone could help me out with that?
      As my travel partner and I are both in our early twenties, I would greatly appreciate all suggestions!

      Thank you so much.

      Travel between Egham and London

      London Jan 2, 2015 at 6:40 AM

      Hi from South Africa!
      My daughter (12) and I will be visiting and staying with friends in Egham for a week. We will want to commute to London most days (probably 5 days) for the sights and will also want to visit the Harry Potter Studios one day.
      This London transport thing is very confusing for somebody that lives in a country where public transport is virtually non-existent! Please can you advise on what the cheapest way would be for us to get around?
      So many thanks!

    • Underground station to avoid during peak time?

      London Jan 15, 2015 at 5:59 AM

      Hello,

      I'm going to London for the first time in February, and I'm actually looking fow a way to go to my Hotel (near Earl's Court station) from Stansted Airport.
      I looked for a few ways and I found out that I can use the train + the Tube, but we'll arrive during peak time (around 4pm) and I was wondering if there are any underground station we need to avoid during peak time, specially with suitcase ?
      We'll need to make a change at either Green Park, Victoria, Holborn or Tower Hill. Should we avoid one of these stations or it doesn't matter?

      Thank you for the possible answer. :)
