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

      London 28 minutes ago

      Hi,

      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.

      Thanks.

      Accommodations

      London Apr 7, 2014 at 3:40 PM

      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?

    • 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!

    • Can I Return to London

      London Yesterday

      I flew to London About a year ago for my wedding (keep in mind I'am Canadian), and i was denied entry, because i didn't have a marriage visa. Canadians don't need a visa to enter the UK for less then three months. So at the London airport, they held me for 18 hours and sent my right back to Canada, after taking my fingerprints, and questioning me. so now a year has passed and i have gotten married. and want to visit my spouses family. I fear a repeat of those excruciating 18 hours, will occur.
      Is it possible to enter London after a year from being denied, with out being hassled?

      Any advice on an area to stay in London?

      London Apr 9, 2014 at 8:03 PM

      Hi.
      We will stay in London for 6 days. Would like an area adjacent to a Piccadilly tube station so we can get to and from Heathrow with our bags.
      We will be taking several day trips out of London, so reasonable access to a rail station would be helpful.

      Dont know much about London other than the normal attractions, but a hotel in a nice walking area with restaurants, bars, shops, etc... would be good.

      Any advice would be most appreciated!

      Cheers,
      Richard.
