    • Transit Visa

      Heathrow Jul 30, 2015 at 8:15 AM

      This is in continuation to my earlier question answered by you. My airlines says that I need to check in the baggage again(though I will be having hand baggage only).
      So the facts are that
      1. I am Indian citizen having a valid canada visa
      2. will need to change terminals 2 to 4 for taking the connecting air canada flight. (Air india and air canada flight tickets booked on same ticket with a time gap of 3 hrs)
      3. Airlines say that I need to check in the baggage again (though I will be having hand baggage only).

      So what do you suggest should I get the transit visa and which type

      Hello all! I have 2 days that I am trying to plan but I am lost on the how to's and if it can be done. Idealy on day one I would like to do Windsor and then go back to the hotel in london. Then on the second day train to bath see the roman baths, the jane austin centre and the circus (we have been to bath once before and are going with newbies - this is all the are interested in) then going out to the cotswolds to see Castle Combe and Bibury and that direction. We only want to see a few towns (2 or 3) before heading back to bath for dinner, then train back to London. I also thought that we could do windsor and cotswolds by rental car on day one. Stay the night someplace in that area and then on to bath the next day spending the day looking/shopping and heading back to london that night. What would be the best option?? I am uneasy about driving on the other side of the road so would option 2 not be a good idea or is it not a big deal? Thanks!!

      Hey everyone,

      My boyfriend is flying in from Australia and landing in Heathrow at 6am on Wednesday and then flying to Amsterdam at 3pm that afternoon. I'm flying into Heathrow tomorrow night and sleeping in arrivals so I can surprise him when he lands. I am now worried that he won't need to go through customs and go through arrivals. The second flight to Amsterdam isn't on the same ticket as his original flight so does it count as a connecting flight? Or will he have to go out through customs before he catches his next flight?

      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!
