      On previous visits to the area we've used the bus to get from moreton-in-marsh to Chipping Campden. We want to use a car service this time. Can anyone recommend a taxi service for this relatively short (12 k) trip?

      Dorset - art/craft/glass shops and independent shops

      England Aug 8, 2016 at 1:12 PM

      Hi,

      I am looking for craft like places to look at for shopping in Dorset, so pottery places/glass places, etc. I know about Poole pottery, but am really looking for small independent craft places. I have searched, but can't really see many places in Dorset (am staying near Sturminster Newton and will have a car, so can travel). If anyone can help, I would be really grateful.

      Thanks for reading this even if you can't help :-)

      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.

    • Airside Transit Query in Stansted

      Stansted Aug 19, 2016 at 12:16 AM

      Hi All, I hope someone can respond to this - many thanks!

      Very simply, I'm aiming to fly with Ryanair from Glasgow to Stansted, then pick up another Ryanair flight from Stansted to Cork. I'm travelling on an Irish passport, and I'll have hand luggage only.

      I have slightly overly 1.5 hours to do this, and my question is this: is it possible to stay 'in transit' and therefore disembark at Stansted, check the flight information board when I arrive for the Stansted to Cork departure gate, then make my way to that gate WITHOUT having to go thru immigration and re-circulating via security etc.?

      When I have disembarked (from other flights) via Stansted I have noticed a 'flight connections' sign, and assumed that that was in place for that very purpose, but I'm not entirely confident about this.

      Many thanks again.

      Hello,

Is it customary for fans to go out and watch matches at pubs, as we do American football in the US?

      Manchester long-term car parking, driving in UK with a "wrong" car

      Manchester Aug 6, 2016 at 5:18 AM

      I fly regularly to Texas. With a lot of electronics both way we strongly prefer non-stop flights.
      So far the DME-IAH flight of Singapore Air served us the best.

      In their infinite wisdom Singapore Air changed their flights to Munch / from Munich and to Moscow / from Moscow so neither can be used.
      Instead, they fly now from Singapore to Houston via Manchester.

      Questions:

      - What is the best way to get from Alsace to Manchester by car?
      - My car is quite "wrong" for UK, even with the right-hand drive car it's a challenge for me to drive there. How to manage that?
      - How the channel - tunnel operations do work? I do have a Title and a Registration - but not the usual European paperwork, so the curb weight of the car is not indicated. Do I need to contact the manufacturer for the weight data or it is irrelevant on the ferry or the train?
      - Normally (at least in RU) it is not rude to ask (in advance!) the airbnb host to park the car on his/her premises (i.e. in the garden or private driveway) while I am in Texas for few weeks.
      How is it in UK? Is it rude?
      - What is the best area in Manchester which is good for the airport transportation (and probably leaving the car for few weeks safely)

      Thanks

      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.

      Hello
      I am off to Bristol to see the Banksy exhibition soon and wanted to make a weekend of it all with some natural wonders thrown in.
      I have heard that you can get from Bristol to Cheddar on bus 672 or 674 from Bristol - Does anyone know the website where I can confirm times for this.
      I also need somewhere reasonably priced to stay for one night in Cheddar or another pretty village so that we can stay over and then hop on the bus tour through the gorge or similar. Any recommendations. We are not looking to spend more than £75 for both of us for the one night, a lovely place to stay for less would be fabulous but camping is out of the question as I am heavily pregnant!
      On a quick search it seemed that Cheddar accommodation was dear and may all be full. Where else could we stay?
      What is Bream like? would public transport to the gorge be possible from there? and is there anywhere nice to stay there?
      Also wondered whether Burnham on sea or Axbridge were picturesque with the necessary accommodation and public transport links to the gorge
