      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?

    • 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?

      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.

    • Travelling time between Terminal 5 and 4

      Heathrow Dec 20, 2016 at 4:45 AM

      I'm arriving to terminal 5 on flight BA244 at 6:30, and I have to book another ticket which is departing from terminal 4. What time should I book this ticket to be sure I won't miss it? I have to go through the customs and baggage claim. I have an option on a KLM flight KL1010, which departs at 11:45, is it possible to take this flight or should I wait the next? The second option is to wait for another BA flight same departure time, but it costs 4x more than KLM's.

      Thanks a lot for your help, waiting for your answer!

      I will be in England to visit my best friend and during the first two weeks we will travel about. We plan to spend a week in Grassington UK Instead of driving there, what would be the fastest way to get there from Hull? I have looked at several options but not sure which one is the best. We could take a train to York on Leeds or Skipton and then hop on a bus to Grassington. Is this the best route to take?
