We are traveling from Canada and we have a 7 hours transit before leaving to Sri Lanka. We will be arriving at T5 and next flight will be from T3. I need to meet my brother who lives in London during the layover. Since we are traveling with Canadian passports i guess we dont need visa to enter UK.
Since we are not planning to go any where else, I can ask him to come to the air port but im not sure to which terminal. If I take the free bus service from T5 to T3, will I be able to go through the immigration at T3 and meet my brother at the air port . Or should I meet him at the terminal 5 ? He will not be traveling so he cant come through the security checking.
If I have not baggage to pick up, I will just have cabin baggage is it possible to use the Flight Connections to go to my next flight if I have an e-ticket. I will be landing in Terminal 2 with Singapore and flying out of the same Terminal with Aer Lingus but I have separate tickets. Or if I checked in on-line on the way over and had a boarding card would that work better? Also any ideas how long before you can check in on-line for an Aer Lingus flight? Looking forward to some helpful feedback. Thanks
I have booked flights with Singapore Airlines from Edinburgh to Singapore next month. I arrive at Heathrow Terminal 5 at 0925on a BA flight and leave from Terminal 2 with Singapore Airlines at 1130 so just over 2 hours connection time.
Will this be enough? I'm not sure if I can check my suitcase through from Edinburgh as I don't think there is a Singapore Airlines check in there.(The BA ticket was bought through them though.)
I'm panicking a little as, although I know Singapore Airlines will be obliged to get me back if I don't make the connection, all the later flights seem to be full and I have an onward connection to New Zealand that I need to get.
I'd really appreciate any advice. 3
Which UK Mobile Phone Providers is recomended for tourists?
I have a 15 hr overnight layover at Heathrow and I am thinking to go and check out London since it will be my first time there.
My questions are:
1. Am I allowed to leave the airport with the transit visa and then return to continue my flight?
2. Do the trains or buses to and from the airport operate 24/7?
3. Is there a place that you recommend a first time visitor to check out at night? (A mall, street, park etc.)
We are travelling to London next week to 'hopefully' sort out our Russian visa's. We are driving up from the south west along the a303 and m3. Does anyone know a good place to park on the outskirts of London so we can catch the train in. We could catch the train from Exeter but for 4 of us I would need to sell the house to pay for it.
I will be visiting London the 23th and 24th of May. Coming from Harwich to Stratford and am looking for a budget hotel with twin bed hotelroom (2 single beds). Budget is around 100 pounds maximum and looking for a pretty central place near a tubestation. Any tips near for example Kings Cross or Stratford and maybe a hidden gem?
Thank you! :)
We are travelling to London craft beer festival at August. The festival takes place at place called "The Oval space". My husband suggested we could stay near it, but we´ve never been in that area. I think we wouldn´t need to, since we stay 4 nights, and planning to go there for one day. Or what do you think? How is the area? We´ve stayed at Paddington, at the City (near Liverpool street station) and at Victoria area before. None of them is a must now, could go to new area again. I´m searching for places at airbnb, they seem to be chepaer than hotels in London also.
We like to go to a pub at night (craft beers are huge bonus on pub menu ;) ) and find places to eat near the place we stay.
Hi - we are a party of 4 arriving at Heathrow and wanting to travel by public transport, or door to door shuttle if possible, to the Windsor Holiday Apartments - 73 High Street, >London N8 with as few changes as possible. It would be wonderful if someone could let us know. Thank you.

Hi there, I'm coming to London in early July. I heard good things about "Wicked" and I would like to get a ticket online in advance. Where would you suggest to buy it? and if I want to save money and order the last row will it be good enough to watch and enjoy the show?
If I'd get a chance to order another show, which would you recommend? and where do I buy it? (I already saw "Phanthom of the opera" when I visited London in 2011).
We are travelling from Dubai to Lisbon (Europe).
We have Portugal residence permit.
We will reach from Dubai to London Heathrow, at terminal 5. After 6 hours we have flight from London Heathrow, terminal 3 to Lisbon. (same on Return)
My question is;
1. Do we need a UK transit or Direct Air/Aisle visa?
2. Will we cross any UK border from terminal 5 to terminal 3 or vice versa?
We are Colombian citizens with US permanent resident cards. We have Schengen visas Type C (with one single entry).
We initially entered the Schengen area through Stockholm; then, we visited Berlin, and Amsterdam.
Flying from Amsterdam to Paris, we had to stop in Heathrow Terminal 5 for 40 minutes, and the BA's person stated that we didn't need a transit visa.
Once in Paris, we were refused entry on the basis that we had left the Schengen area when landing in Heathrow Terminal 5 even if we didn't left the terminal and our passports were stamped by the UK.
Please comment. Thank you.
Me and my mum will be flying to us from delhi and have a layover of an hour only..We were wondering if that time is enough ..Also my mum cannot walk that fast ..so we were thinking of booking a wheelchair.so will i be allowed to accompany my mum.. my mum is 53 years old and i am 17 yrs old
We will be flying into UK this weekend with a 11 month old baby (stroller) and were wondering which one is a better and cheaper option to use - Zipcar vs Subway vs (sixt.co.uk/avis/hertz)?? We get to Heathrow and need to get to Islington. Is renting a car from zipcar or any other traditional car hire make sense?
Another transportation query - If we take the Subway, would it be easy to travel from Heathrow to Islington with a baby, stroller and our luggage or would it make sense to rent a car? Is the Subway stroller friendly?
Thanks for your help in advance!
