Hi ! i am an indian student in france with student visa , how can i visit / apply for london visa from paris ?
I am attending a concert at Finsbury Park in May next year on a Friday night.
I expect this concert to finish around 11pm, I am having a sudden panic of how I am going to turn back to my hotel.
I am staying Tower Hill. Can anyone recommend the best way to travel from Finsbury park to tower hill? I presume tube stations will be very busy after concerts of this nature and not sure on the last tube time.
Any ideas how much a cab would be from A to B?
Thank you in advance

I will purchase a zone 1 & 2 Travelcard when I'm in London next week. However, I am wondering what would happen if I accidentally trespass into zone 3 and exiting at that station? Can I pay for the additional fare or I'll be fined straight off?
Hey guys !
I'm going to spend Christmas in London for the first time in three weeks and I'm very excited. However I was wondering if anyone had ideas about how and where I could spend those few days ? I would like to visit or to do non-mainstream things aside from all the "tourist" things everyone does, I'm sure there are a lot of interesting stuffs to do in London that are not well-known. Thanks :D
I've tried to look but several sites are down.
Can you go direct from Kent Station (UK) to Amsterdam direct?
Or do you have to go to Brussels first then Amsterdam?
I know otherwise I can go from London to Brussels station onto Amsterdam
Hi. I'm planning to take a vacation to the UK next year, and I was just wondering how to get around the city. Do we have to use the bus, take a cab, or go underground? Thanks!
I know this my be a ridiculous request, however I am asking anyway. About 25 years ago when I was in London I visited a pub. This pub was no more than an hour or so out of London, While I was there, I remember someone telling me that the Vikings had landed in that very location and that it was over 1,000 years. I also remember that the seats (booths , for lack of a better word) we stone slabs. If you can help, please email me at email@example.com. My son is traveling soon and I would love for him to experience it.
I'm preparing to send my daughter to London for a semester. Any tips to make her transition easier? Perhaps a 'dont leave home without' suggestion? This is her first trip to Europe. Thank you!!
Only going to be there for a day- staying in Pancras. Really want a day in the life of a local!!! Been 3 times prior and seen big sights already.
I'm proposing to my girlfriend in Central London in February. I want to plan a scavenger hunt proposal where she has to follow clues to find me and the ring at the end. I have a list of great places in central to add to the list, but I'm conscious about the almost certain bad weather in February. Can anyone recommend places that are indoor that I could add to my scavenger hunt in Central London? This way I could make it half indoor and half outdoor. Thanks.
I would like to know, where is the best place in London to go shopping?
Thanks for any advice
We are a group of some 10 men, visiting a friend in London. We are an easygoing, relaxed bunch. Primarily interested in good cocktails and good music. Can you recommend a bar which has more or less the following features?
- Bar welcomes larger groups without letting them wait on a queue outside for years and years
- They know how to make decent martini cocktails
- They stay open late
The bar does not need to be very fancy...
Thank you very much for your help!
Hi! I want to go to London for a week, so which places I must see in that short time?
I am planning to visit London at the beginning of January. Unfortunately, I will stay in London only three days. Could you point me a few places that I necessarily see it? And secondly, could you recommend me a place where I will try good fish and chips? Thank you in advance!
I am looking for a nice restaurant in the central of London where I could take my parter for his 30th birthday. I would prefer a child friendly as we will be taking our 8 year old daughter. I would also like some where that would provide a little birthday cake for him so our daughter could sing happy birthday.
I'm looking for interesting places to see in London and the surrounding area. I should add that I'm interested in old buildings. I would like also try typical british cusine. Do you recommend any restaurants?

I'm going to London at the end of this month and i have never been in there. Can you recomend me some cheap but cozy hostels near the City Centre in London?
Hallo to all of you dear friends. I have written 11 questions. I know it's too much so please take your time and forgive me.
We are planning a trip to London on 16/2/2014 until 21/2/2014. We will arrive at Stansted airport.
1. We are interested in the Tate Britain, Tate Modern, the National Gallery and the British Museum especially the Ancient Greek part. We would also like to visit the Orthodox Monastery in Essex. These are the basic. Are there any other art points as far as paintings are concerned?
2.I Know that there is alot to see as far as sightseeing is concerned, but i would like you to suggest the best and most important including churches-abbeies, galleries, buildings, bridges, statues or anything related to well known novelists or poets. I don't know if there is anything concerning Tomas Eliot, Dickens, Shakespeare, Jane Austen etc.
3. What about Oyster Card?
4. Is London Pass worth since most of the museums have free entrance?
5. Does London have "an old city centre" like most of the Italian cities, where you basically move around?
6. Are the most important sights close to eachother? In order to understand, please let's compare the distances with the sights in Florence where the most important museums and sights are, in my opinion, close to each other.
7. Is the Hip Hop City Sightseeing bus a good idea or isn't it necessary? What is the best way to see the most important sights?
8. As for the Monastery in Essex i found out the following info:
"The monastery has no website and no email address. You can write to them at:
The Old Rectory
and phone at: 0044 1621 816471
For accommodation at the monastery, ask for Sister Paula.
If you phone, be patient and be prepared to have to try several times. Try late morning and mid-afternoon.
From Stansted there is a bus to Colchester (North Station) (takes about an hour). (3 εισητήρια κόστος 40ευρώ) From there you can take a taxi to the monastery (takes about half an hour) which (during the daytime) will cost about £15."
I found out that the bus to Colchester (North Station) is SX Connect 133. Am I right? Does anybody know any other tip about visiting the monastery?
9. Are there any short trips from London that can be done during a day, in order to see sth. important? For example one can be interested in visiting Stratford-on-Avon, but i read it is 2 hours and 15min distance which seems quite long for a day trip. Is there anything else?
10. Is London city devided in parts with certain names?
11. Actually we would like sth. cheap as for the accomodation. We would like either one single and one double room at around 70euros each room per night or an apartment for 4 nights. Any suggestions about the area that we sould find sth. at this rate and also close to the basic museums?
Thanks for your patience.
I will spend my winter holidays in England(London). I'm interested in cooking and I like tasty food. Could you recommend me any good traditional's restaurants? What should I order there ?
Thanks for all the tipps!
We did something we never usually do.. We did book Ryanair flights to London two weeks from now, for a weekend. We usually plan everything about 6 months ahead ;)
So we will arrive quite late at friday (Stansted at 21.55, or 10.55 p.m. local way). I guess the train is the fastest way to go to center, and we should even catch a underground to hotel. Before this, it has been at 23.30 or something like that, when the flight has landed, so we have had only option to take the bus to Victoria station, and hotel close to it. Now I think we could stay somewhere else. Is there some area, where there would be easy to go from train (Victoria street station, I think) but would be some pubs or bars still open close to hotels? When we stay only two nights, it would be nice to go for a pint or two at friday, but it should be close to hotel.
Quite many "last minute" hotel offers are at Paddington area. We stayed there years ago, but I don´t remeber at all, how the area was. I only do remeber the station.
My name is Halyna and I am from Ukraine, but I am studying in Poland. My friends and I will go to London next month. We never were there. Please gime me some advice where its better to go. I take interest in cozy cafes, in wonderful parks and streets, in clubs and shops. Of course in our program will be places that are worth visiting, but we want to see London from the other sides.
Waiting for your reply
