      Pub suggestions to catch a Tottenham match

      by sass1217 Online Now 15 hours ago

      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!!!!

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

      by sass1217 Online Now 15 hours ago

      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?

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

      by charlesracine Online Now 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

      by oRi_5 Online Now 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!

      They have mentioned in their voucher that their services may be disrupted on the 11th due to the "Trooping the Colour".

      Do they cancel the buses or is there restricted movement?

      The have mentioned main departure points as follows:
      Piccadilly Circus - Hay Market - Trafalgar Square - Grosvenor Gardens - Marble Arch - Tower Hill - Russell Square - Woburn Place.

      Which would be the best point for me to opt, if I stay near Holland Road.
