I would hate to drive round the china clay area, near St Austell, not know where the best vantage point was for photographs. I have looked at some spectacular photos in books but they don't say exactly where they were taken or if there are any access restrictions. Can anyone help?
Also, is there more than one access road (gate) to the Eden Project or does everyone have to approach from the same side?
looking to be in canterbury may 26th bank holiday sunday / monday / tuesday
have a 3 year old - looking for attratctions for him aswell
accomodation rapidly running out as limited budget
any ideas across the board would be good
Other VT's have advised to purchase Eurostar tickets in advance for trips for example London Brussels changing to Amsterdam. How much time in advance is recommenced to get a good price? We are now looking at 3 months from now/May 26st. Also there are 4 seniors traveling together, if that makes any difference. In Brussels changing trains to Amsterdam, there is 15 minutes between trains, does that seem like enough?
Thanks to all in advance, Chuck
Where is the best place to wait for another traveler after I have cleared customs in Terminal 5?
I will be visiting the lake district with my family for about three nights at the start of June (We have a 3 year old and an 8 month old)
Can anyone recommend some excellent accomodation near any of the lakes? We visited Bowness-on-Windermere briefly last year and were enchanted.
Budget is a consideration & self catering is fine, but our main desires are cleanliness, scenery and hopefully the likes of a rustic log fire!
Thanks for your help folks.
Hello I need a good heads up !
We are staying in tossa de mar next week from may 8 and have Spanish gran price tickets.
My dilemma is ,without car Hire what is the best to get to the circuit over the three days on which it's held , from our tossa de mar base?
I really could do with some solid advice, as this is a potential nightmare !!
My first flight from CPH- LDN on SAS is scheduled to arrive at LHR Terminal 3 at 350pm and my second flight on Singapore airlines LDN- SIN is scheduled to depart at 835pm at Terminal 3.
Will there be sufficient time for me to clear immigration and baggage from my first flight and re-check in at 635pm for my second flight? As I've heard stories that immigration at LHR takes rather long.
Your help is greater appreciated!
I apologize for re-posting this question but I am a newbie and I don't know how to remove my first question.
I don't think that I was very clear in that query. Please let me try again. I am landing on a BA flight at LHR Terminal 5 on Sunday mid morning. A friend, who is also flying BA, is expected to arrive at LHR Terminal 5 a couple of hours later.
Is there a comfortable place (with luggage in tow) that I can watch the screens to see the status of her flight and wait for her to clear customs we can then meet up so we can then proceed to the Heathrow Express?
Thanks everyone for your patience!
I arrive at Terminal 3 around 11:30 a.m. and my friend arrives at Terminal 4 around 12:15 p.m. Do I get my bags and go through immigration before I meet her? Where should I meet her at Terminal 4? Will she already have her bags and have gone through immigration? About how long will it take?
I plan to visit London on June 18. And then I will visit Bath on June 23. From Bath I would like to visit Norwich on July 1. Finally on July I plan to leave Norwich directly to Heathrow Airport in London. What kind of mas transportation I can take for the journey?
I will arrive on July, on a Sunday at 12: 25 pm. Then I have to take my next flight ( I bought it separately) to Germany at Terminal 5, at 15:10 hrs.. Will I have the time? Or I better change my ticket to next departure that is at 19:00 hrs.
Thank you very much for your answer. I am coming from México, then Dallas, then to London. I am Mexican.
Hello! My family and I are traveling to London 5/25. We have not bought Oyster cards in advance. What is our best and most cost effective way to get to our hotel (Gloucester Road). I have not found that I can buy Oyster cards @ Heathrow (Terminal 3). Is this true? If we cannot buy them, can we buy paper tickets with cash to get us from Heathrow-Gloucester? Where would we do this?
Your help is much appreciated! Thank you!
I am planning on travelling from St:Paul's tube station to Marlow. The national rail is advising me to reach Paddington by tube, and continue the journey by train via Maidenhead. The trouble I am facing is that the train changes are rather closely placed (5 min!). Would it be safe then to buy a anytime day return ticket from PAD to Marlow (and use Oyster for the tube leg)? Does it make sense to book it in advance (which means I have collect it in the PAD station)? What about bus services?; Google maps are providing me a few suggestions, but appear to be a slower option. Comments greatly appreciated!
ill be in london for 3 days from on the 11th june. just having a few days away. if anyone is around it would be good to meet for a drink to put the world to rights and talk travel experiences. look forward to hearing from you. i used to live in london so will be able to show you around.
We are spending the last 4 days of 2 week trip in London. We are flying into Heathrow and are looking for lodging for two nights that is convenient to public transportation (tube/train) The last two nights we are with friends in Bexley. Need suggestions on moderately priced B&B, hotel, etc. will make it easy to get to major London sights. We've been there before I know our way around a bit. Appreciate any suggestions.

I WILL BE TRAVELLING TO THE UK IN LATE SEPT WITH MY HUSBAND, HIS MOTHER AND OUR 18 MONTH OLD DAUGHTER. WE ARE SPENDING 5 DAYS IN LONDON AND THEN HIRING A CAR TO EXPLORE FURTHER. A FEW WEEKS AGO I POSTED AN ITINERARY THAT WAS JUST A BIT TOO EXTENSIVE FOR OUR TIME FRAME. MY THOUGHTS ARE NOW TO CUT DOWN ON WHERE WE ARE GOING AND STAYING LONGER IN THOSE PLACES. WE WILL HAVE A TOTAL OF 6 NIGHTS AWAY WITH OUR 7TH NIGHT AT A HOTEL AT HEATHROW AS WE FLY OUT TO PARIS THE NEXT MORNING. WE ARE COLLECTING OUR CAR FROM HEATHROW AND WILL BE HEADING TO BATH FOR 2 DAYS. AFTER THIS I'M JUST NOT SURE WHERE TO GO NEXT AND MORE IMPORTANTLY WHERE TO STAY NEXT. THE THINGS I WISH TO DO ARE ALL RELATIVELY CLOSE TOGETHER THEY ARE AS FOLLOWS: WORCESTER - TO SEE THE PORCELAIN FACTORY STRATFORD UPON AVON - CADBURY WARWICK - CASTLE BOURNVILLE - BLACK MUSEUM THE OTHER PLACE IS BURSLEM AT STAFFORDSHIRE WHICH APPARAENTLY IS WHERE THE ROYAL DOULTON VISITORS CENTRE IS! CAN ANYONE CONFIRM THAT THIS IS STILL OPEN? IT APPEARS TO BE FROM THE WEBSITE THAT I FOUND, BUT SOMEONE TOLD ME THAT DOULTON DO NOT MAUNFACTURE ANYTHING IN THE UK AT ALL ANYMORE AND THE WEBSITE SAYS THAT SOME THINGS ARE STILL MADE ON SITE. THIS IS OUT OF THE WAY OF EVERYTHING ELSE. I GUESS MY QUESTION IS WHAT ELSE IS THERE AROUND THIS AREA AND WHICH TOWN SHOULD WE STAY IN? I THINK WE SHOULD STAY A MINIMUM OF 2 NIGHTS IN EACH PLACE AS THIS IS THE START OF A 2 MONTH TRIP FOR US AND WE HAVE OUR DAUGHTER TO CONSIDER. SHOULD WE HEAD TOWARDS BURSLEM FROM BATH STOPPING AT WORCESTER ON THE WAY AND SEEING THE PORCELAIN FACTORY AND THEN HEAD BACK TO THE OTHER PLACES? OR WILL THIS BE TOO BIG A DRIVE FOR ONE DAY WITH A CHILD? THANKS IN ADVANCE AND HI FROM DOWNUNDER
