    • Heathrow to Southampton Cruise terminal

      London 6 hours ago

      Cruise line wants $101 pp each way to go from Heathrow to Southampton cruise terminal.
      That's $202 a couple. Not just the cost, but from our past trip, we had to wait for almost
      2 hours until other passengers arrived to fill the bus. Is there a less expensive alternative?

    • Separately booked flights - Checked bag collection

      Heathrow Apr 16, 2014 at 6:49 PM

      I have booked my flights separately (coming in and going out of LHR). Do I need to exit the transit area, means do I need go through immigration/customs just to collect my checked bags and board the next flight?
      Thank you for your help and time!

      Tossing around the idea of picking up a pair of tickets to the Monty Python show at the O2 in July, most probably on the 20th. My son (27) and I (57) would be attending together, and spending 4 or 5 days in London, arriving by air to either Heathrow or Gatwick. Looking for suggestions for accommodations - easy access from/to the airport would be nice, easy access to the O2 (tube okay) even better; room doesn't need to be 5 star, just clean and safe - hotel, hostel, b&b all okay. Thanks!

      Harwich cruise logistics

      London Apr 7, 2014 at 10:13 AM

      I'm looking at the logistics for a Harwich - Copenhagen cruise. It's been some time since I've been in London, but never found the trains too difficult. Any suggestions my thoughts of staying a few days in London, then taking the train to Harwich in the AM to board the ship? Or would it be better to travel the day before and overnight in Harwich just to be on the safe side of the trip?

      At the end I'm debating on taking Easyjet (or other) from Copenhagen back to London to attempt at some round trip savings on air fare from SAN in the US as opposed to two one-way trips. Thoughts from those that travel Europe frequently?

      cheapst way to use tube fot 8 days of travel fro Swiss Cottage (Zone2) in to Central London

      London Apr 21, 2014 at 10:41 PM

      I'm thinking of staying at a hostel at Swiss Cottage, but it seems rather far away. However, the price is lower than many closer to the city center. So, I would have to make my transportation cheaper as I would likely use the Tube several times a day during my 8-day stay. I am arriving and leaving from Heathrow as well so if there is a transporation pass of some kind that would cover my situation and make it it worth saving staying out a little further, that would be great.

      Any suggestions?

    • London 241 voucher

      London Apr 17, 2014 at 8:53 AM

      Hello, I have a short 1.5 day stopover in London while traveling back home. We are arriving at Gatwick at noon and leave Monday at 2pm. Transportation from Gatwick to our hotel on Mayfair has been arranged via private car. We are interested in taking advantage of the 241 deal on Sunday for Tower of London, London eye, and London Transportation Museum. Where is the best place to purchase a valid 1 day travel card that is valid for the 241 promotion? We are staying near the Green Park station. We are free Saturday afternoon after we land and can purchase the 1 day travel card then. Thank you in advance.

      I lived in London for 5 years growing up and I'm excited to show the kids some of the sites. We will be back for a longer visit once they are older.

      Brit Rail Pass - 2nd Class vs 1st Class

      London Apr 16, 2014 at 10:39 PM

      Going to be in UK and Scotland for two weeks including London for a week.. Getting Brit Rail pass for all our travel including doing day train trips out from our London base. Trying to decide if should do 2nd class or 1st class. Main thoughts are on getting 1st class is that for the longer trips seems like would be nicer and when in London may be using trains at same times as commuters and was told better chance of getting seats. Would love to hear experiences from other travelers who have used a Brit Rail in the two classes. Thanks.

    • Best way to travel from Heathrow to Paddington Station

      by Hannahnicole Online Now Apr 3, 2012 at 7:49 PM

      There are 4 in our party. Is it more economical to take a private car from Heathrow to Paddington Station or just take the Heathrow Express? We don't want to use the Tube - we will have luggage for our cruise out of Tilbury the next day. What would a private car cost vs the Heathrow Express train?

      I expect to be travelling from Paddington Station in London on 7th May, to arrive before 5.30 pm. I would like to know the times that trains leave Paddington for Plymouth, and their times of arrival. Also whether any change of trains is required on any or all of the possible trips.
