      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?

      Should I do it?

      London Dec 23, 2016 at 7:05 PM

      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,

      Robert

    • 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.

      What to do and see in one day?

      by Anjuschka Online Now Jul 15, 2014 at 9:01 AM

      Hello - I'm from Germany...
      I wil be coming to St Albans (as a short trip away from London) - what could I do in one day? I'm on my own and don't mind walking...

      I'm interested in quiet places and maybe a enjoying the lake. See some interesting local / historical sites. Would love to take a snack or so - I read about the Waffle House - would be my cup of tea... :D and of course do a little shopping...

      I'm not quite sure how to put it all together to enjoy a nice day and maybe meet some local people to talk to... Not sure if I could find a guide for a little tour or so - just to get a nice insight of your city...

      I would be very pleased if you could get me some advise - that would be very helpful to enjoy my visit...

          • It's not very urgent but I'd like to plan ahead)***

      Thanks,
      Anja ;)

    • Travelling to London

      by nigelkitching Online Now Dec 2, 2010 at 3:18 AM

      Hello

      My daughter recently started working in London and she has finally found somewhere to live in St Albans.

      She will be travelling into work every day and needs to get to Leiceter Square tube station.

      I've been trying to figure out the cheapest way to travel (by train) and I seem to have come up with £2,668.00 per year for a Travelcard plus another £1,032.00 for a Oyster card.

      Is this the best we can do?

      Any help would be greatly appreciated

      Nigel
