    • London Reconstructing of Big Ben

      London Nov 27, 2016 at 11:14 PM

      Hi all,
      I will be heading to London for the first time in Feb 2017.
      News had mention that the reconstructing of Big Ben will start in early 2017. The last news available was in April 2017 about the works. I have also read the FAQ at the parliament website but they do not really have an indicative date.
      Read that scaffolding will take 4-6 months to build. Not sure if the view in Feb will be much effected. Saw google images of the tower with scaffolding and it's not a very pretty sight. :(
      Anyone knows of any news of the work schedule or any comments much appreciated.

    • Transferring from international flight at North Terminal to domestic flight at South Terminal

      Gatwick Nov 14, 2016 at 4:44 PM

      Hello, I am looking at booking a flight from Sydney, Australia to Newquay, Cornwall via Gatwick with 2 children and 3 checked-in bags (the children are 10&13 so can wheel their own luggage).

      I have two connecting flight options with my Emirates flight, which lands at North Terminal at 7.20am:

      1. Flybe from South Terminal at 9.30am
      2. Flybe from South Terminal at 1.35pm.

      Common sense is saying hang around for the 1.35pm flight but that's a long time to sit at Costa, especially after a 23-hour journey & with two tired children ... Do you think (providing the plane lands on time) that I'd have a good chance of making the 9.30am flight or would it be just too much of a rush?

      Thanks in advance

I forgot to mention the reason - why I'm choosing a place to go out: we want to celebrate my father's bithday and he likes bars a lot. So, we need one with a good atmosphere.

    • Usual duration for a short term flat rental in Glasgow

      Glasgow Aug 26, 2016 at 7:30 AM

      What is the usual duration for a short-term contract when you rent a flat in Glasgow?

      On many websites it just says short or long term without any time specification.
      I heard that most of the landlords prefer to put 6 months as minimum term, because of the short assured tenancies law.

      Would it possible to find something shorter such as 2 or 3 months?
      Any suggestion would be welcome.

      Thanks.
