    • Transit Time

      Heathrow Jul 27, 2016 at 6:04 AM

      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.

      I need advice in choosing between two hotels (London house hotel in Bayswater) and (Bladford near madame tussauds).

      Pub suggestions to catch a Tottenham match

      London Jul 25, 2016 at 4:05 PM


      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!

      Travelling to Manchester- How to get there and what not to miss?

      Manchester Jul 17, 2016 at 3:16 AM

      So we will be going to Manchester from the 1-5 August. Here are a few questions. Thanks in advance for you answers! (P.s. I'm 20 years old and my brother's 17 years old. We will be travelling with our parents.)

      - We need to travel from Manchester Airport to Manchester Piccadilly Station. We were considering using the Northern Railway. We are four adults with four large suitcases and four small hand luggages. Is it possible to carry these with us on the train?

      - We will be staying at the DoubleTree by Hilton (near the Piccadilly station). What are some things that are not to miss in the centre? Like good restaurants and so forth.

      - We will be renting a car, so it is possible to go further. We were planning in going Trafford Centre and Chester Zoo. Any other must visit places?

      - We were thinking of stopping at Delamere and Blackemere Moss. Is that a good idea?

      Thank you for reading and looking forward for you answers :)

      Easiest way to get to Victoria Station from Heathrow

      London Jul 27, 2016 at 11:46 AM

      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!

      How useful or value for money is 'The London Pass'?

    • T3 passport control waiting time at 7pm on a mid-Oct Sunday

      Heathrow 21 hours ago

      I am holding non-EU passport and have another connection to T4 in 2:50hrs after landing at T3. Since I am on two different ticket despite they are BA/MH, 'given the change in oneworld rules, I don't think BA will grant me any exception to check through my luggage. I want to see if that time of the day is the quiet or peak hours at T3. There will be an A380 from Dubai 15 mins before my flight and another Garuda flight landing at similar time as mine. The good thing is once I am at T4, I have Fast Track access, so this could save a bit of hassle and time.

      My other option is to only take hand luggage, but this will be my last resort as I want buy some local wines in Spain.

      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.

    • Where to stay near Silverstone.

      Northamptonshire Jun 18, 2008 at 5:03 PM

      We are taking my Mother and Father in-law to Silverstone to watch bike racing in September & are not too sure where to stay. We want to be within 10-20 miles of the circuit and be somewhere that has shopping for the ladies, more market town than shopping mall.

      We also require some good restaurants & a nice quaint hotel.

      I have Bicester in my head but not sure if it would be suitable.

      Any ideas?

      Can anyone help me find this gal?

      Wellingborough Oct 6, 2004 at 7:03 AM

      I have been looking for this gal, Carol. She was a friend of mine in England from 1963-65. She lived in Wellingboroug and I was stationed at RAF Alconbury near Huntingdon. She had a sister that married an American and moved to Chicopee Falls, Ma. She worked in a TV factory in Wellingborough. I don't know her last name but she may have moved to the States as well. If anyone can help me find her or know how I might locate her I would greatly appreciate it. I know this is like finding a needle in a haystack, but would like to know where she might be. Thanks to all who have tried to help in the past. I now have a picture that I can post that was taken around 1963. Barry
