      Freddie Mercury

      London Jan 4, 2017 at 12:39 PM

      Hi there, I'm going to visit London next week and as a big fan of Freddie Mercury want to find some souvenirs with him like flags, t-shirts. Can somebody tell me where in London can I find such things to buy?
      Thanks in advance!

    • how much money do you need to be granted a visa to visit the UK for 1 or 2 weeks?

      England Dec 25, 2016 at 12:22 PM

      In order to have the visa application approved, you need to show that you have a certain amount of money, the means to look after yourself for the duration of your stay and to get back to your home country on your own. You need to show that you have a reason to return home.. The person who will visit me from morocco is a student who wants to visit the UK for 1 or 2 weeks, they can also stay with me in my house so there is no need to pay for a hotel or anything like that, even food I would provide everything. But we dont know how much money they must show is in the bank account for the visa to be accepted or denied. There seems to be no guideline about any kind of threshold. Does anyone know more about how much money is needed for the visa application to be accepted?

      Should I do it?

      London Dec 23, 2016 at 7:05 PM

      I want to send my parents to London....(no, not permanently). Can anyone recommend a hotel which is reasonably priced? It doesnt need to be in the middle of London but not too far away either. They are in their mid 70's and I dont want them to have to walk too far. Thanks so much for your help. Happy Holidays everyone. With Love,


    • Question about a layover

      Heathrow Jan 5, 2017 at 4:00 PM

      I am from the USA and traveling internationally for the first time to Newcastle. I have a layover at Heathrow during the travel. I know in the USA you have to go through immigration and customs at the first port of entry into the country. Do I have to go through immigration and customs before I catch my flight to newcastle? I am traveling with American Airlines for the whole trip.

    • VISA Question

      London Jan 1, 2017 at 5:01 PM

      Hello, guys. Here I have some dilemma. Due to UK's Immigration procedure, citizens of Ukraine need to obtain VISA to step on Her Majesty's soil. But, there are also some rumors that once you have NATIONAL LONG-TERM VISA (in my case, I'm currently holding National Long-term student VISA of Spain) from any EU/Schengen Agreement country, you could travel to GB without another. Please, reply me as soon as you can, because I've tried several times to figure it out both in UK's Government website and Spanish. None of them replied. Thank you in advance.

      Things to do with limited time in Leicester

      Leicester Jan 19, 2016 at 9:17 AM

      i will be in Leicester for a workshop for a few days. I will have limited time to see the city (probably only 1/2 day), what would be good to see for a textile crafts person who likes history, museums? Is it easy to get around on foot or would a bus be better?

      Many thanks

      London to Loughborough

      Leicestershire May 9, 2011 at 8:36 AM

      Hi, I will be touring some colleges in the UK this Fall and I was wondering is there public transportation options from London to Loughborough University or is a rental car the best way?
      Thanks for any suggestions.

      Seeking pleasant overnight stay in Leicester vicinity

      Leicestershire Feb 6, 2011 at 8:27 AM

      Need to break a fairly long drive with an overnight stay around my half-way point, which is Leicester. I have found an acceptable hotel on the edge of the city, but as a visiting Anglophile Yank who doesn't know Leicestershire, I'd prefer a village or town in the area that would make a pleasant overnight stay. I will be approaching Leicester from Melton Mobray and heading on to Warwick and the Cotswolds the next day. My planned route would take me through (around) Leicester, but I don't mind a little detour.

      Airport Question

      Leicester Sep 18, 2010 at 3:37 AM

      I know from watching shows on TV that Anglo-Indian activity around this area is pretty considerable. To me, it might be a cheaper way to see a different group of expatriate Indians. But is one airport a better destination in such a trip than another? Are all UK airports in London or Luton? Or are those the international airports that feed air traffic to smaller regional airports throughout the country?

    • Leicester Ugly? Expensive?

      Leicestershire Aug 9, 2004 at 3:25 PM

      I'm asking this question is several forums, so forgive me if you're forced to read this again. I'm an undergrad student in the states soon to be studying in England. I'm looking for peoples opinion's on my choices of uni locations. Is Leicester ugly or concrete (as per the 60's architectural "renovations" much talked about in England)? Also, is it very expensive there? I'm also looking at Nottingham, Exeter, and Oxford as well... Any help is appreciated. -Kel
