    • 7 hour Layover at Heathrow- meeting someone at the Airport

      Heathrow Apr 22, 2015 at 9:14 AM

      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.

    • non connection flights

      London Apr 22, 2015 at 12:51 PM

      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

    • Manchester Airport Terminal 1 - Short Stay Car Park

      Manchester Apr 12, 2015 at 11:43 AM

      Hi,

      I'm going traveling in a few weeks and my parents want to drop me off and come into the terminal to make sure i'm checked in all right. I was just wondering about parking.

      I've read about the multi storey and that being the best option, but how & where do you go about paying? especially as they'll only be parked for 30mins - 1hour.

      Complete novice to this sort of thing. I'm normally just dropped off and that's that. So any help will be more than appreciated

      Thanks

      Area around the Oval Space.

      London Apr 23, 2015 at 4:38 AM

      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.

    • Logistics suggestions please!

      England Apr 7, 2015 at 4:36 PM

      There are 3 of us traveling to Britain in May for 2 weeks. We want to spend about 5 days in London with 1 of those days to travel east by train and 1 day to go to Oxford and Warwick Castle. We then plan to take a train to Edinburgh for 4 days and do sightseeing there.
      My question is we also want to fit in Bath, Salisbury, Stonehenge, Michael's Mount and Tintagel. We are thinking of renting a car for this phase. I'm wondering if we should rent car in Salisbury and do Stonehenge and drive to Bath that evening. Spend a day in bath and make way towards Michael's Mount and do quick trip there and then on to Tintagel and drive along the coast by Tintagel and then head back to Salisbury. Can we take train from Salisbury to Heathrow?
      Please provide any insights, suggestions. My husband is nervous about renting a car and wife says "let's do it"!

      Advice of Cumbrias Local

      Cumbria Apr 20, 2015 at 11:21 AM

      Hello! I need an advice of Cumbrias Locals. I have a pen friend who lives alone in a small village Mealsgate. We had been exchaiging letters every day for more than 3 months till last Thursday whan he didn't answer my last message. He is not a person who stops correspondence without any explination and I am afraid that he may be in trouble. He relocated to Mealsgate about 2 months and don't know his neighbours. Most people come to this place only for a weekend. So if he felt bad or locked or anything else it was possible that there were nobody to hepl! I had a such type bad experience when I couldn't open my bathroom door and thought that I might stay there forever. So I worry and don't know what to do. I found local police email but I am afraid they will dicide that it is a joke. I actually hope that he is fine but his computer is broken or just doesn't want to communicate but I would like to be sure that he doesn't need help.
      Any ideas?
      Thanks

    • Leaving Schangen area?

      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.

      A question about Laxfield and the B117

      Suffolk Dec 19, 2012 at 9:45 AM

      Visiting eastern Suffolk next summer on what is mainly a churchcrawling holiday (I know the west). I have found (but not booked) a cottage in Laxfield. It is just off but near the B117, which runs right through the village. Does anyone know Laxfield and/or the B117 well enough to venture an opinion of the wisdom of this idea? I've stayed in a village with a busy road through it, and it was a very unpleasant experience, but it was an A road. There are other options, but this seems like the most "strategic" base for my purposes. (I had settled on Fressingfield, but the cottage was just yanked off the market). Many thanks for any first-hand knowledge. --Spencer

    • Pizza restaurant in Ipswich town centre in 1979

      Ipswich Feb 4, 2012 at 3:44 PM

      Does anyone remember the name of a famous Pizzeria that was located in 'The Walk' in Ipswich around 1979? Entrance was either via 'The Walk' or from the Buttermarket, I think, but I'm not sure as it was so long ago. The various pizzas on the menu were all named after roman emperors and they were fantastic. It has changed ownership many times since that time sadly, but it was a terrific restaurant.


      Thanks.

      A rainy day: in Bury St Edmunds or Saffron Walden (I know, not Suffolk)?

      Suffolk May 7, 2010 at 11:49 AM

      Hi Always-Helpful VT Forum,

      I have two days left in Suffolk, based in Lavenham, before moving on to Norfolk (yes, it's the E.A. grand tour for a New Yorker). Tomorrow (Sat.) promises to be rainy. I'm saving a 'Constable country drive' for Sunday, which looks like the better day (weather). CRISIS: What to do with the rainy day? I imagined I would visit both Bury (so close) and Saffron Walden (in Essex, but not too far away). Now it seems like either/or. Any advice about the better rainy-day-choice?

      MANY thanks in advance.

      My fiancé and I are planning to get married in St Edmunds church in Southwold in August 2008. We are now looking for a venue for the reception after the ceremony. As I would like to have a very traditional English wedding, we are looking for something pub-like (as opposed to a big banquet hall ... and the Swan is unfortunately out of our budget range).

      Does someone know a pub (or traditional restaurant) that has a function room or that can be rented out for a private function? It should be in the center as we are hoping to get around without using cars. There will be about 70 guests in our wedding.
