    • 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?

      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,

      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.

    • Travelling time between Terminal 5 and 4

      Heathrow Dec 20, 2016 at 4:45 AM

      I'm arriving to terminal 5 on flight BA244 at 6:30, and I have to book another ticket which is departing from terminal 4. What time should I book this ticket to be sure I won't miss it? I have to go through the customs and baggage claim. I have an option on a KLM flight KL1010, which departs at 11:45, is it possible to take this flight or should I wait the next? The second option is to wait for another BA flight same departure time, but it costs 4x more than KLM's.

      Thanks a lot for your help, waiting for your answer!

      A question about Laxfield and the B117

      Suffolk Dec 19, 2012 at 9:45 AM

      Visiting eastern Suffolk next summer on what is mainly a churchcrawling holiday (I know the west). I have found (but not booked) a cottage in Laxfield. It is just off but near the B117, which runs right through the village. Does anyone know Laxfield and/or the B117 well enough to venture an opinion of the wisdom of this idea? I've stayed in a village with a busy road through it, and it was a very unpleasant experience, but it was an A road. There are other options, but this seems like the most "strategic" base for my purposes. (I had settled on Fressingfield, but the cottage was just yanked off the market). Many thanks for any first-hand knowledge. --Spencer

    • Pizza restaurant in Ipswich town centre in 1979

      Ipswich Feb 4, 2012 at 3:44 PM

      Does anyone remember the name of a famous Pizzeria that was located in 'The Walk' in Ipswich around 1979? Entrance was either via 'The Walk' or from the Buttermarket, I think, but I'm not sure as it was so long ago. The various pizzas on the menu were all named after roman emperors and they were fantastic. It has changed ownership many times since that time sadly, but it was a terrific restaurant.


      Thanks.

      Suffolk, the final frontier

      Suffolk Apr 9, 2011 at 1:15 PM

      Next month I'll be taking a short break to Suffolk and it will be the final county in England for me and then I can say I have been to every one.
      I don't really know how I've managed to avoid Suffolk in all my years of travelling but there you are. I'm sure Suffolk is a wonderful county as I'm soon to discover.
      So what would you recommend I see?
      From my base in Stowmarket I will visit Bury St Edmunds, Southwold and the village of Eye as they all look interesting places but are there any hidden gems I should know about?

      A rainy day: in Bury St Edmunds or Saffron Walden (I know, not Suffolk)?

      Suffolk May 7, 2010 at 11:49 AM

      Hi Always-Helpful VT Forum,

      I have two days left in Suffolk, based in Lavenham, before moving on to Norfolk (yes, it's the E.A. grand tour for a New Yorker). Tomorrow (Sat.) promises to be rainy. I'm saving a 'Constable country drive' for Sunday, which looks like the better day (weather). CRISIS: What to do with the rainy day? I imagined I would visit both Bury (so close) and Saffron Walden (in Essex, but not too far away). Now it seems like either/or. Any advice about the better rainy-day-choice?

      MANY thanks in advance.

      Cheers,

      Spencer

    • Looking for a venue in Southwold

      Southwold Sep 19, 2007 at 4:08 AM

      My fiancé and I are planning to get married in St Edmunds church in Southwold in August 2008. We are now looking for a venue for the reception after the ceremony. As I would like to have a very traditional English wedding, we are looking for something pub-like (as opposed to a big banquet hall ... and the Swan is unfortunately out of our budget range).

      Does someone know a pub (or traditional restaurant) that has a function room or that can be rented out for a private function? It should be in the center as we are hoping to get around without using cars. There will be about 70 guests in our wedding.

      Thank you very much for your help.
