Can anyone suggest a place, either in the afternoon or early evening where we will be treated to good food and a bit of a dance or maybe a bit of a show?

      Off-Peak Day Return question

      England Feb 2, 2016 at 3:49 AM

      I understand that the off-peak tickets are only valid after 9:30 in the morning. But I haven't been able to find out if they are also bound to a specific time in the afternoon. Can they be used on any train when going back? Or is there a certain rush hour, when all the commuters travel back and the off-peak ticket is not valid? I don't want to be bound to a specific train, but the difference between this ticket and an anytime return is more than 11 GBP so I'm thinking about getting it. This is for the London-Cambridge-London trains.

      Thank you for your help.

      So, we'll arrive fairly early (from the States) Monday and thought a rasy series of Public bus rides that afternoon might whet our appetite for a re-visit.
      Which route (or series or routes) would y'all suggest for an overview of London? Numbers? We already have our Oyster passes.
      PS: We are taking an all day tour to Oxford and The Cotswolds for Tuesday and a walking tour (of London highlights)

      Heathrow Yesterday

      I'm Colombian trying to book a flight from Houston, TX to Barcelona, Spain. With British Airways. My flight will have a conexion in London Heathrow for 2 hours. I will arrive at T5 and departure will be at T3. I WOULD LIKE SOME HELP figuring out if I will cross uk border when I go from T5 to T3 to catch my conexion flight? And if I will need a visa

      According to this article from the uk government website

      Colombian nationals will be able to transit airside through UK airports without needing a Direct Airside Transit Visa (DATV).

      Colombian nationals will still need a visa if they want to cross the UK border for any reason, whether to visit or change flights. If a connecting flight is from another airport, passengers will still need to get a Visitor in Transit Visa before passing through the UK.

    • Walking from Terminal 5 to Staines Moor

      Heathrow Jan 12, 2016 at 9:59 AM

      Hi everybody!

      In May I will arrive at terminal 5 and will have more than six hours before my connecting flight (also T5) departs. I know I'll need plenty of time for security, but I think there should nevertheless be enough time for a short walk outside the airport. I am thinking of walking to Staines Moor and maybe spend an hour there. My questions: Is it feasible? Can I walk from terminal 5 to Staines Moor or is that practically impossible because there are only big roads? Has anybody done this during a stopover? If so, do you recommend it? If you think it's a bad idea, can you recommend any alternative?

      Nottingham - in and around

      Nottingham Oct 20, 2015 at 3:47 PM

      Well, one should not have "great ideas"... I find myself in the situation that I'll have to plan and organize a trip to Nottingham for a small group, without having ever been there. Please help me to find and sort some thoughts and point me into directions for further research. We are in the very first stages of brainstorming, so forgive my present ignorance. Detailed and well-researched questions will surely follow later on when the idea becomes a plan.

      Background: We have been invited to Nottingham for the anniversary of our sister club (one weekend), and the basic idea is planning our own trip of 5-6 days around this. Travel date will be mid March - this is non-negotiable because of the event that we will be attending. Not the most perfect season, I know, but we want to make the best of it.

      Who: small group of 6-8 ladies between fourties and seventies. Some walking is fine but not too strenuous hikes.

      Interests: vary, of course, but culture and history rank high, museums and historical buildings (so far I found the castle, Wollaton Hall and the textile museum, City of Caves, maybe Galleries of Justice Museum). The footsteps of Robin Hood should also be followed.
      Some spare time for shopping will be appreciated. Are there any good street markets, or areas with little shops, arts and crafts and such, in Nottingham?

      Option a) staying the whole time in Nottingham, and including a day trip or two. Hints are welcome: Any good day trip options, easy to reach on public transport, preferably trains? A castle, a picturesque village or small town, a historical town/city with a great cathedral, etc.? Lincoln perhaps?

      Option b) a second base in a different city for 2-3 nights. Undecided where.

      Looks like the most convenient airport will be Birmingham, as there are direct flights from Frankfurt. Any comments on the city of Birmingham, is it worth a closer look and consideration?

      Nottingham and english pubs: gay v straight -Is it ok?

      Nottingham Apr 13, 2008 at 11:41 AM

      Greetings All,
      I am going to be in Nottingham on business. My co worker in nottingham said it was customary to go to a nightclub that was gay. However, my fellow portugese friends may feel a little bit strange going to bar that is for gay folks. My question is, is it really customary , common and accepted for straight men and women to to go a club that is designated for gays? if so, then great, its a custom and no issues. If not, then i probably wouldnt recommend it. We want to experience the true english experience, but i dont want to be out of place.
