      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.

    • T5 to T3 cross uk border?

      Heathrow 6 hours ago

      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.

      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?

      Stratford Upon Avon - Anne Wood - Rosie and Jim; Ragdoll Productions; Teddy Bears

      by leecouk12324 Online Now Oct 28, 2011 at 5:19 PM

      Hi - off to Stratford Upon Avon in a couple of days.
      OK - well we all know that it is very famous for William Shakespeare.
      However i am very interested in what else there is to see?
      Many people are very negative about this - and many say there is little else to see - i do not believe this - there has to be some things other than Shakespeare.
      Now in my FootPrint Britain book it mentions about the Teddy Bear Museum - this looks no longer here - which is a damn shame.
      Then I was following in the footsteps of Anne Wood - famous for Telletubies - but also Rosie and Jim - so i would like to go to the Canal where it was flimed - i think Rosie and Jim was great. On google maps you can go to the former home of The Ragdoll Shop and you go to streetview you will see Rosie and Jim looking out of the top window.
      So would like to follow in footsteps of Anne Wood - and any other notable people that have had an effect on the town.
      Then there may be other things to see in Stratford Upon Avon.

      What to do in the Stratford area

      We are headed to Stratford next weekend and have been several times before so we are trying to find things to do in the surrounding area. We were in the Cotswolds in April so not sure we want to go back - unless someone can recommend them in November?

      Bournville has been suggested. We would probably give Cadbury World a miss (being a big Green & Black's fan I couldn't really show my face there!) but would the town itself be worth a visit? What about Warwick? The castle is waaaay too expensive to visit but what about the town?

      I guess what I am trying to find is someplace that would be a nice day trip from Stratford where we can have a dander about and take photos and might have some lovely autumn colours. Any ideas?

      Cotswolds tours

      by lou31 Online Now Oct 23, 2004 at 8:29 PM

      Hi to all, I will be in Stratford mid May next year and am trying to organise an itinery for my UK holiday. Can anyone tell me if I can get some sort of tour either day or overnight to the Cotswolds from Stratford? Also if I hired a car how far is it to places such as Broadway or Evesham and how long would a drive take? One more thing.......Can I catch a train from Stratford to Scotland and if not which would be the nearest station? Thanks in advance.........I'm in a bit of a pickle about how to best see the Cotswolds in 3 days. Cheers..................Louise

      Hi, does anyone know how to get from the Warwick Castle to Stratford-upon-Avon? I know they are just about 8 miles away but does anyone know if there's a local bus that runs btw the two places? Thanks so much!
