    • 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

      Heathrow Dec 29, 2014 at 9:08 PM

      I will be arriving at Heathrow from Mexico City at 16:15 on Apr. 27 (T4), I need to catch a flight the following day to Istanbul (departing from T2) and I have two options: 6:55 or 11:55, I'd rather prefer to take the first one, to gain time before arriving to Turkey, my point is that I was planning to sleep at Yotel in T4 and then move the next day to T2 in the early morning, at what time does the Heathrow Express starts working? (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 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!

    • 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!

    • Public transportation from York to Stratford

      York Dec 1, 2012 at 1:23 PM

      We will be travelling to Great Britain this June. I had hoped to go to Stratford from York and stay a couple of days before continuing to Chipping Campden (where we are renting a cottage for a week). Then on the way back to London we would stop in Oxford for another couple of days.

      The problem is that even though in terms of location this makes the most sense, I can't seem to find reasonable public transport from York to Stratford (13 hours and 2 stops!) whereas I can get to Oxford from York directly in just a little over 3 hours. Is there any more direct public transport from York to Stratford that I'm missing, or is backtracking the only way to make this work? (Renting a car is not an option.) Can anyone help? Thanks.
