    • 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.

      Great things to do and see

      by scarlettnichole Online Now Jan 6, 2009 at 6:15 PM

      My cousin and I are having our annual "girls trip" in England this March. We are planning on staying in Kent, but I wanted to check out Richmond also. I see there are quite a few who have posted some great tips, but too many for me to read all through. So, yes, I'm taking the easy way to find out some great info. I am wondering if some of you could advise me on great places to visit, shops(of course, I am a woman!), restaurants, parks, and anything else you may consider a fun thing to do! Any advice will be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

      I'm going to London in late November, and by bus, to a show at York House. A friend told me to be sure to go early to look around the river area, as it is very beautiful. Where is a nice place to walk around, and maybe visit a bookshop? Thanks much. Barbara

    • Hotel with Parking

      by Vixen1 Online Now Jun 28, 2007 at 5:17 AM

      Hi there,

      We are looking for a cheap hotel in Richmond that offers parking. I have found a Travel Inn in Brentford - is it easy to get to Richmond from there in the evenings? Is there somewhere in Richmond that would be suitable?

      Thanks for your help.

      Cycle hire in Richmond?

      by arzauk Online Now Mar 12, 2007 at 10:18 AM

      Apparently you can hire bycicles in the car park near Richmond Park's Roehampton Gate (
      It seems a long way off Richmond's train station - I'll be going by public transport from London.
      Does anyone know if you can hire cycles in Richmond itself (somewhere closer to the tube? (Can't find this info on the web)
      Many thanks!

    • H20 Restaurant

      by topkat Online Now Jul 30, 2006 at 7:09 PM

      I am planning to travel from Vancouver to Gatwick on my husband, Alan's 50th Birthday (Thursday, August 31st, 2006). It is coincidental that I took him to lunch on Thursday, August 31, 1978 (to celebrate the first birthday we spent together!!!)at a restaurant in Richmond and then we walked along the Thames after our meal. (Can't remember the name of the restaurant now -- 28 years later!!!).

      Anyway, we emigrated to Canada on his 25th Birthday (1981) and we are due to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary on September 25th!!!

      This is a surprise trip for my husband -- he has little idea of anything I have planned for him.

      I am hoping that you will be able to make a special surprise for him.

      We are due to arrive at Gatwick Airport at 9:20am and will pick up a car at the airport about 11:00 am. Could you please give me directions on how to get to your restaurant by the most direct route from Gatwick. (We haven't been in that area for 25+ years!!!!)

      Do you have any specialties of the house? Could you please let me know at your earliest convenience.

      Thank you very much for your kind assistance.
