    • 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

(or can I walk between these two terminals?), because I need to be at Turkish Airlines counter at 5:00 the latest, could someone help me please?, I could find any schedule online...

      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 Yesterday

      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!

I have to be back in London by 15th April afternoon.
      (1) London - I see that accommodation around London are quite expensive. Any place outskirt of London that is good to stay. Budget Inn budget hotel. Mode of transport
      (2) Manchester - Stadium Tour, Match-day & discover Manchester.
      (3) Mode of transport to other city/places.

    • 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!

      Couple of Days in Lincs

      Lincolnshire Jun 29, 2008 at 4:15 AM

      I thought I'd try the Travel Forum from the point of view of a questioner, rather than an answerer!

      I'm planning to spend a couple of days at the end of this week to visit the village in southern Lincolnshire where my surname originated. While I'm up there, it would be nice to stop somewhere for a bit of indulgent sightseeing. At most, I could probably spend a couple of hours each at two locations, or maybe half day at one. Any suggestions for good places to stop? Lincoln is an obvious option which I'm not ruling out, but I know it is quite far north in the county.

      As a second question, does anyone know of any nice B&B's for a Friday night, or locations with a good choice of options?

      Lincoln Mar 4, 2006 at 2:39 AM

      I am going to Lincoln on an exchange in September and I wanted to know a little about the area. Are there any interesting historical sites around? Would you suggest hiring a car to drive around Scotland/Wales/general area? Is it relatively easy to get a job there - I'm looking for part time work (bloody Australian dollar being 40p) something in the retail industry, probably. I can get a british passport too as my mother was born in the UK, would anyone advise getting the British one instead of using my Aussie one?

    • Bicycle hire in Boston?

      Boston Jan 17, 2006 at 2:07 PM

      Where can I hire bicycles in the Boston area? We're looking for something similar to the lovely old fat tire cruisers we ride at home. Have toured on a sleeker model, but that was years ago, when - alas - I was sleeker as well. Any suggestions? We're planning a week or so in late April.

      I am thinking to coming back from the Middle East to live in Lincoln next year. I would appreciate any comments people may have about living in Lincoln, the good things, the bad things, and any general comments
