    • Transit Time

      Heathrow 21 hours ago

      Thank you in advance for the help and advice.

      We are flying into Heathrow from Charlotte, USA on American Air. We then are connecting on to an Iceland air flight to Iceland. Since Amerian Air, and Iceland Air, do not share ticketing or baggage, I have to purchase two separate tickets. I will have to go thru passport control upon arrival into Heathrow, claim my baggage, exit the airport, find the correct terminal in which Iceland Air is departing from, then recheck my baggage at the Iceland Air counter, go back thru security, and,,,,,sit down.

      My question is, how long will it reasonable take to do the above?

      Thanks again.

      Easiest way to get to Victoria Station from Heathrow

      London 15 hours ago

      Hi! I'm looking for the easiest, not necessarily the quickest, way to get to Victoria from Heathrow. We will be traveling on a Saturday morning around 10:00. I have a 7 day travelpass covering zones 1-4. The less transfers, the better. Time is not necessarily of the essence, as we cannot check into our hotel until 14:00. We are traveling from the US for a 10 day stay, so will have at least 1, if not 2 bags each.

      Thanks for your help!

    • Deciding between 2 hotels in London

      London Jul 1, 2016 at 3:53 AM

      I need advice in choosing between two hotels (London house hotel in Bayswater) and (Bladford near madame tussauds). The first is less expensive, slightly larger room, better rated, but I hear the location is crowded. The bladford is nice, but more expensive, but the location seems nicer than bayswater. Any ideas/advice? thank you!

      Pub suggestions to catch a Tottenham match

      London Jul 25, 2016 at 4:05 PM

      Hello,

      My son & I will be visiting London in September, and although Tottenham is playing during that time, we can't fit an "away" game into our schedule. Is it customary for fans to go out and watch matches at pubs, as we do American football in the US? If so, we're looking for a fun and energetic Tottenham "friendly" pub to catch a match while we're in town. Thanks!!!!

    • Accessing Terminal 2 from Terminal 3

      Heathrow Jul 14, 2016 at 11:33 PM

      I am new to VT and apologize if similar posts show up. I think my previous questions have not posted due to my email not being verified so I am trying again.

      My wife and I will be flying British Airways arriving terminal 3 and leaving terminal 5. We have a 6 hour layover in Heathrow and would like to access the United Club Lounge located in terminal 2.

      It is my understanding in reading other posts that you can only have access to the terminal you are leaving from. However, I have also read something about terminals 2 and 3 being connected by a walkway. Does this mean that if we fly into terminal 3 we could have access to terminal 2 even through we are not flying out of there? Or is there a security check point between terminal 3 and the United Club Lounge we would be trying to get to in terminal 2.

      Thanks so much!

      Considering a first time stay in Paddington station area vs. Gloucester Road underground area

      London Jul 22, 2016 at 10:45 AM

      We have often stayed by Gloucester Road underground stop and this time considering Paddington as different area to visit and to use one of the Heathrow trains from Paddington station to LHR. We have a relatively early flight, 10:00 am departure from terminal 3 and thought this might be easier than a hotel directly at the airport the night before or a taxi from Gloucester Road underground area. We didn’t consider the Tube with the luggage and the travel time it would take. Gloucester area is nice, can that be said of Paddington station area too, considering the pubs, restaurants, sights, people, etc. All comments and suggestions are greatly appreciated. Also, thanks to all that answered my June posting.

      Place to stay

      London Jun 30, 2016 at 5:47 AM

      Hi.
      I'm looking for some advice on the best place to stay - not necessarily in London but not sure where to post. We are looking into a holiday where we fly to Stansted and then we will be spending a day in Legoland, a day in Chessington and a visit to the Natural History Museum for sure...other days are not planned yet. We will be travelling with a 4 and 2 yr old. We would find it easier to stay in an apartment rather than a hotel as it's easier with kids... but not sure which would be the best area to look which would be the most accessible to all the different locations as there is some travelling distance to all obviously. Also, if it would be possible to get around via public transport or best to rent a car?

      We would be travelling in October.

      Thanks!

    • Query regarding Baggage and Change of terminal(Single Ticket)

      Heathrow Jul 14, 2016 at 2:52 PM

      Hi, I am an Indian student travelling to USA this August. There is a layover of 4 hours 15 minutes at Heathrow. Arrival at Terminal 4 and Departure from Terminal 3.

      My airline (Jet Airways) from India to LHR told me that ''your baggage will be through checked in till final destination.

      However in London there is change of terminal and airline so will be asked to identify your baggage on the arrival in London and then you need to hand over your baggage to American airline counter to board onward flight with them.''

      I have to also move from Terminal 4 to Terminal 3. I am a bit confused about what is to be done? (if it is checked through till last, then what do I have to do) If I have to carry my luggage, then will I have to pass through Immigration? Can someone please explain in some more details what exactly is required to be done on my part?

      I have checked (in fact mailed them too but with no definitive answer but only to go to this link) with the GOV.UK site [https://www.gov.uk/check-uk-visa]about requiring a transit visa. I think I am exempt as I am carrying an F1 Visa for USA. (Whether I answer Yes or No at the Border Control, in both there is an exemption mentioned if US Visa is available.)

      I have managed to reach this link[heathrow.com/flight-connecti...] which to some extent tries to clear things out but I am not so certain yet...

      Thanks in advance! :)

      Is Buckingham Palace a "can't miss" attraction?

      London Jul 25, 2016 at 3:58 PM

      Hello,

      My son & I will be in London while Buckingham Palace is open for visitation. I've already purchased the London Pass, and think we have enough to contend with already. We are history buffs, and I cannot wait to see Hampton Court Palace, but is BP a "must see"?

      Also, what (if any) major attractions are (in your opinion) over-hyped and not worth the time?
