    • Transit Visa

      Heathrow 3 hours ago

      This is in continuation to my earlier question answered by you. My airlines says that I need to check in the baggage again(though I will be having hand baggage only).
      So the facts are that
      1. I am Indian citizen having a valid canada visa
      2. will need to change terminals 2 to 4 for taking the connecting air canada flight. (Air india and air canada flight tickets booked on same ticket with a time gap of 3 hrs)
      3. Airlines say that I need to check in the baggage again (though I will be having hand baggage only).

      So what do you suggest should I get the transit visa and which type

      Seating at The Globe

      London Jul 2, 2015 at 12:56 PM

      My wife and I enjoyed our tour last year of The Globe theatre and would like to return for a performance. As I recall the benches in the theatre were uncomfortable. The Shakespeare's Globe web site makes it appear that the only seating is on benches. My wife has a bad back and could not sit there for long. Are there any comfortable seats in the Globe?

    • Transport passes in Edinburgh and London

      London Jul 1, 2015 at 2:36 AM

      I understand that the oyster card will cover London major transport system such as buses, trains. Can it be used in Edinburgh too and if not any transport passes that can cover both Edinburgh and London? If there isn't, what is the best transport pass to purchase for Edinburgh given i am staying in Edinburgh for 5 days? I think i will travel both train and bus there.

      Thank you in advance!! :)

      I was perusing the London site and came across Sandemans New London free walking tours one of which is the Old City Tour. It meets at the corner of Covent Garden Plazza by the Apple Store Does anyone recommend this tour? If so, can I take the tube from Heathrow Airport to the meeting location? Does anyone suggest buying the oyster pass? Once at the Plazza will there be plenty of points of interest within walking distance or will I need to take public transportation to visit places which if it's the case then I should. consider the pass, correct?

      Windsor, Bath and Cotswolds as 2 day trips??

      London Jul 6, 2015 at 7:50 PM

      Hello all! I have 2 days that I am trying to plan but I am lost on the how to's and if it can be done. Idealy on day one I would like to do Windsor and then go back to the hotel in london. Then on the second day train to bath see the roman baths, the jane austin centre and the circus (we have been to bath once before and are going with newbies - this is all the are interested in) then going out to the cotswolds to see Castle Combe and Bibury and that direction. We only want to see a few towns (2 or 3) before heading back to bath for dinner, then train back to London. I also thought that we could do windsor and cotswolds by rental car on day one. Stay the night someplace in that area and then on to bath the next day spending the day looking/shopping and heading back to london that night. What would be the best option?? I am uneasy about driving on the other side of the road so would option 2 not be a good idea or is it not a big deal? Thanks!! 

       

      **UPDATE** I know this is a lot in the amount of time we have but we just want an overview

    • Surprising Boyfriend

      Heathrow Jul 27, 2015 at 4:54 AM

      Hey everyone,

      My boyfriend is flying in from Australia and landing in Heathrow at 6am on Wednesday and then flying to Amsterdam at 3pm that afternoon. I'm flying into Heathrow tomorrow night and sleeping in arrivals so I can surprise him when he lands. I am now worried that he won't need to go through customs and go through arrivals. The second flight to Amsterdam isn't on the same ticket as his original flight so does it count as a connecting flight? Or will he have to go out through customs before he catches his next flight?

      Cheers, Monique :-)

      Kensington area

      London Yesterday

      We have booked a hotel near Kensington Olympia, since we are attending a happening at there. Now I have noticed that it might be expensive area to eat out at night, or visit some pubs Is it so? I´m not so pleased to our hotel, that I could easily change it, if I find something at reasonable price and with not too many changes of underground when attending to Olympia. There´s 3 weeks to go, so I´d rather decide soon.

    • Hire car parking

      Heathrow Jul 5, 2015 at 2:25 AM

      Hi,
      I am picking my girlfriend up from heathrow at the end of the month, I wanted to be fully prepared so have booked my hire car and was about to book the short stay parking to tick another thing off my list of things to do.
      The parking site says that registration is important due to number plate recognition......but I won't be picking the car up until the day before, less than 24 hours before I wish to park. Is there any way around having to provide my registration when booking? If not, is it possible to book the parking less than 24 hours before? I plan on parking up at roughly 8am and will be receiving the car 3pm the day before.
      Ive never driven to heathrow to pick anyone up or drop them off. Only when flying as a kid. I suffer from anxiety hence why I want to try and book everything in advance for peace of mind.

      Any help advice etc will be massively appreciated.
