    • 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.

    • Titanic experience

      Belfast Apr 6, 2015 at 1:53 AM

      In blunt terms is the Titanic Experience worth it - I know that this is a subjective question and is there parking nearby. How long should I allow for the visit. What exactly is involved with the boat trip. The website leaves a lot to be desired. So often these historical attractions are not worth their money - being on a tight budget would the money be better spent on a pub meal?

      Many thanx

    • 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

      Flying into Belfast, will stay at Holiday Inn Express on University Street, were told to take bus 300 from airport to go to Europa Hotel Bus Station, is that going to be walking distance to Holiday Inn? Can't afford what I fear may be expensive taxi rides?Also is it about 10£ for return ticket (to and from) ? also where would I go to catch train to Dublin, from same hotel? Is that also walking distance? Thanks very much for any assistance. We are used to walking, though middle aged, just have to keep in mind we have two suitcases to tag from airport with us. :)

      Tips for a draft intinerary for 14 days to United Kingdom.

      United Kingdom Apr 12, 2015 at 10:56 PM

      We are planning to travel free and easy on a 14-day trip to United Kingdom. After reading the many suggestions from travellers to the questions posed in this forum, I have in mind to travel to London in the first instance and from there, take a train up North. Our interests are:
      (a) beautiful autumn sceneries, possibly in a village;
      (b) landmarks and famous places in London and UK;
      © experience falling snow, however, brief;
      (d) shopping

      With these things in mind, we are thinking of making Edinburgh as our Northern base. After we complete North UK, hopefully experience falling snow, we will travel back to London.

      However, I am at a loss as to how many days we should remain in each city or town. Or the places we should not miss. Can you help to give us some tips on a draft itinerary? And whether or not it is good to rent a car or travel on public transport? Thank you.

    • 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

      Accommodations recommendations, good pubs, restaurants and all comments appreciated. Has anyone been to Llandeilo and is there a taxi service? What is there to see and do in this small village? We are going there, by train from London Paddington via Swansea, likely in August. Can anyone recommend a hotel and a genealogy researcher as my ancestors came from Llandeilo on the river Towy? Their surnames are Pulker and Peacock.

      Sorry, I would have posted this under Llandeilo not Swansea but, VT doesn't know this location though it is shown on the VT map.

      All comments are greatly appreciated. Thanks, Chuck

      Bachelorette Party?!

      by Cenoteazul Online Now Jul 20, 2007 at 9:15 AM

      Hello,

      My daughter is getting married in early August in a town called Llanddowror, the home town of her fiance. She thinks it's going to be only her father and I going. We are from the US and have never been to Wales.

      She has no idea yet, but I have arranged for 4 of her best friends to surprise her and meet us there!!

      The problem? We want to have a fun bachelorette party, but I have NO idea what to plan or where we might go for some action. We would like to be in a bar or club with lots of people.

      Is Swansea the best place? How far away is it from Llanddowror?

      The other problem? It's going to have to take place on the first MONDAY night in August! Not the best night of the week for a party - but it has to be that way.

      Can anyone give me some ideas of where to go? Thanks so much!
