      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,

    • Athenaeum Street on Plymouth Hoe.... Please help with history

      Plymouth Jan 4, 2015 at 3:34 PM

      Hi, I am researching my property on the Plymouth Hoe but having a bit of trouble:( It was built in 1749 and stands as the first and largest house on Athenaeum Street. It was mentioned to of been built originally for a nobleman connected to St Andrews church and later rumored to of been used as the American Consulate during WW11, following that to be owed by Danny La Roue. These references where given to us by a man researching the area staying at the hotel across the road but he was just vacating so only spoke for a few mins. We also had a note left in the house from the previous owners when we purchased the property in 2009. The exterior of property was remodeled by Foulston during the development of Athenaeum Street in the 1800's and later the house was separated into 2 parts in 1903 (of which I purchased the main). The problem that I am having is that as the property is so old, I can not find out what the house was originally named or what the address would of been before Athenaeum Street was developed around it. I have found it may of been built on the site of ' Kingsdon Sq' from one old map also that it was not eligible to pay taxes from another map. I don't know the original owners details and can not find any pictures of any form dating back that far. I have been trying to collate the History with our son as a project for some time but the National Archives allude us. The property has been Grade II Listed and we think it's history really should be unearthed. We have also checked the census from 1851 and found the Baddeley family here who married in with the female Edgecumbes which to this day we still finde the Baddeley's and Edgecumbes very closely connected around the world. They also had alot of dealings in India. Please can anyone help at we have hit a wall ?

      With kindest regards :) 30 Athenaeum Street PL1 2RQ

      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.

    • 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?

      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!

      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?

      Hi,

      my parents are here from India and would like to spend a few days visiting the Lake District. Could you please recommend some rough plan of where which parts to visit and some hotel/b&b recommendations (if you happen to know of any).

      Bear in mind they will be traveling from London by train to get there and will have to use whatever forms of public transport, trains, buses/coaches to move around once there. They are quite elderly...so don't suggest the areas which are more for hiking etc. Just some nice scenic areas and if there are also some historic "stuff" to see would be great.

      by madfish369 Online Now Apr 24, 2012 at 8:17 AM

      Hi,

      I'm doing a short tour in Scotland and was wondering if it makes any sense to take a train from Edinburgh to Lake District for an overnight stay. Is just a one day stay in Lake District worth it?

      I'm actually unaware of what one (as a tourist) really sees or does when visiting "Lake District". Any advice would be welcome. I'm actually asking for my parents. I'm not even sure if it's a straight train that'll go from Edinburgh to Lake District (Windemere right?)...and if they arrive in the afternoon...spend that evening and the next morning there and leave in the afternoon the following day. Does this sort of "stop over" tour make sense?

      Look forward to your helpful responses :)

      by mickey.p Online Now Mar 27, 2012 at 12:37 PM

      Hi, I am thinking of taking my other half to the Lakes for his birthday as he's never been. There would be 4 adults and 2 children in total and we would need 3 bedrooms. I would consider a chalet, cottage, lodge but not a caravan - my 13 year old son who is Autistic doesn't sleep well and in a Cabin Bed he has no chance as he's nearly 6'!

      I don't fancy being too out of the way and would like it to be somewhere my son and his friend can be entertained, sports, pool etc - night time enetertainment isn't a must but would possibly be used if available.

      I would love somewhere with a private hot tub if possible - just something extra for his birthday.

      Oh and I'd rather not pay the earth as he's at risk of losing his job!

      I know it's a large act - I am a travel agent so have tried the usual hoseasons, cottages for you etc!

      Thought I may get more options from those in the know!

      Can anybody suggest B&Bs or hotels that take 1 night bookings in Bowness?

      by clareabee Online Now Jun 6, 2011 at 2:21 AM

      We want to stay for one night on a saturday towards the end of july in Bowness on Windermere but everywhere seems stipulate a minimum of 2 nights on a weekend - that would be lovely but due to work restrictions we cannot commit to two days!

      Thank you in advance,

    • What should we see/do?

      by evs50 Online Now Aug 17, 2010 at 4:42 AM

      We are visiting the Lake District for a few days in Setember. We are staying in Penruddock i believe, near to Penrith. What should we see/do/eat etc? Any suggestions welcome, whether they be obvious tourist must-see's or something a little less obvious and requires local knowledge.

      Suggestions for eating places are also welcome, and does anyone know which pubs sell Timothy Taylor Landlord in the area?

      Cheers

    • Lake District with young children coming by Train from Edinburgh

      by wooandroo Online Now Jun 13, 2010 at 10:51 PM

      Hi,
      I am planning my first trip to the Lake district with a friend and 5 under 7 year olds. The youngest is almost 2, 2 are 4 and the others 6 and 7. We are planning to leave from Edinburgh by train and to camp.
      Could anyone give us advice on where would be best to go as we dont drive but want a nice nature filled experience for the kids with enough emenities at hand to keep all entertained. No computer game halls please but places with activities like rowing/fishing/adventure playgrounds etc. Also any advice on good camping grounds which are not too far from things as again we wont have a car.
      Any advice on what to pack too as its our first time camping.
      Thanks
      Thanks

    • Lake District log cabin recomendations please

      by joeted Online Now May 11, 2009 at 3:44 PM

      Hello everyone
      Im looking to book a break for me and my girlfriend to the Lake District and was wondering if you could help please
      I might be asking too much here lol but Ive always loved the idea of staying in a log cabin in a woodland setting surrounded by wildlife, trees (obviously) etc with a gorgeous view of the lake or a log cabin on the shore surround by woodland.
      Can anyone tell me if theres places of that sort to stay in the Lake District ? Ideally I dont really want to be in a area thats full of tourists, nice and quiet would be great with nice wildlife walks etc as Ive taken up photography too.
      Thanks so much in advance
      Kind regards
      Joe

      I plan to take my 2 teenage children to the Lake District for 3 days in early July. How long would the drive be from London? And train journey? From which London station to where? I am unable to walk long distances - how is public transport there or are there online links to local car rental prices?
      Also, any info re: prices for vegetarian b+b or half board?We will be one or two adults and two teens.
      Thanks very much in advance,
