      Brit Rail Pass - 2nd Class vs 1st Class

      London 1 hours ago

      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.

      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?

    • A trip in early may to London, looking for advise.

      London 9 hours ago


      Me and my wife are looking for our first vacation in London at the start of may.

      We are currently debating on how long should the trip be, and what should we expect the daily expenses to be about (so we can see how much the trip will approximately cost us).

      Currently, the flight will cost about 1500$ - 1700$ (i need extra room for my legs).

      The hotel is about 255$ per night (it's near the London bridge area and has an 8.8 booking rating), and that was the cheapest i found for may that is in the city and has good reviews.

      The trip is somewhere between 3.5 to 7 full days (excluding flights).

      Our main concern is the price and length of the trip. We would like the trip to be:
      a. not running around all day long.
      b. to get a good feel of London. (i.e. we would like to walk in the parks, weather permitting, go to 1 or 2 theater plays and we like some culture and museums but not artsy fartsy ones)
      c. not go overboard spending-wise. (yet not skimp on essential parts of the experience).
      d. hopefully enjoy just the right amount of time :)

      Would love to hear your input.

    • Accessing Airport Lounge in Terminal 4 after security clearance in Terminal 4

      Heathrow Mar 19, 2014 at 10:36 AM

      Perhaps it sound silly but I hope someone can help me here. I was told that I can access other Terminal Airport Lounge from Terminal 4 AFTER clearing security. For instance, when I'm already through security, can I still leave terminal 4 for terminal 3 lounge? I usually use the MAS Golden Lounge but when I travel with KLM etc, my Priority Pass isn't accepted in Terminal 4, only Terminal 1 & 3, I think. Would greatly appreciate it if someone could clear this confusion for me as it does not really make sense. Thank you!

      Great things to do and see

      by scarlettnichole Online Now Jan 6, 2009 at 6:15 PM

      My cousin and I are having our annual "girls trip" in England this March. We are planning on staying in Kent, but I wanted to check out Richmond also. I see there are quite a few who have posted some great tips, but too many for me to read all through. So, yes, I'm taking the easy way to find out some great info. I am wondering if some of you could advise me on great places to visit, shops(of course, I am a woman!), restaurants, parks, and anything else you may consider a fun thing to do! Any advice will be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

      Cycle hire in Richmond?

      by arzauk Online Now Mar 12, 2007 at 10:18 AM

      Apparently you can hire bycicles in the car park near Richmond Park's Roehampton Gate (
      It seems a long way off Richmond's train station - I'll be going by public transport from London.
      Does anyone know if you can hire cycles in Richmond itself (somewhere closer to the tube? (Can't find this info on the web)
      Many thanks!

    • H20 Restaurant

      by topkat Online Now Jul 30, 2006 at 7:09 PM

      I am planning to travel from Vancouver to Gatwick on my husband, Alan's 50th Birthday (Thursday, August 31st, 2006). It is coincidental that I took him to lunch on Thursday, August 31, 1978 (to celebrate the first birthday we spent together!!!)at a restaurant in Richmond and then we walked along the Thames after our meal. (Can't remember the name of the restaurant now -- 28 years later!!!).

      Anyway, we emigrated to Canada on his 25th Birthday (1981) and we are due to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary on September 25th!!!

      This is a surprise trip for my husband -- he has little idea of anything I have planned for him.

      I am hoping that you will be able to make a special surprise for him.

      We are due to arrive at Gatwick Airport at 9:20am and will pick up a car at the airport about 11:00 am. Could you please give me directions on how to get to your restaurant by the most direct route from Gatwick. (We haven't been in that area for 25+ years!!!!)

      Do you have any specialties of the house? Could you please let me know at your earliest convenience.

      Thank you very much for your kind assistance.
