    • 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?

    • 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.

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.

      Hi, I am staying at Bath and would like to take a trip to Stonehenge, followed by Salisbury Cathedral. I would like to attend the Evensong service at Salibusy Cathedral at 5.30pm. I was wondering what is the best way to do it and if I could do it independently? Because my search online has always led to tours that only go to Stonehenge but not Salisbury Cathedral.

    • Traveling to Stonehenge from London on a Sunday morning

      Stonehenge Sep 19, 2012 at 10:41 PM

      I am fortunate enough to have booked a sunrise tour of Stonehenge during my trip to England this January. However, I am staying in London, and I don't think there is a train that could get me to Salisbury by 7:30. Any advice or suggestions on how to get there? I have considered renting a car for the day, but I'm under 25 and can't drive a manual, both of which lead to premium prices. Any and all advice appreciated, thanks!

However, they don't "open" until 9:30 a.m. and I will be there much earlier then that. Does anyone know how close I can get to see Stonehenge before they "open"?

      Salisbury Dec 11, 2009 at 9:41 AM

      Hey all,

      We are planning to visit Salisbury from Wembley in end of December. We are planning to see Stonehenge, Cathedral, and Old Sarum. We were also interested in visiting Bath. The questions are-

      1. Can we club both in a day?
      2. If not, will it be more advisable (and economical) to stay in one of these cities instead on returning to Wembley and coming back next day.
      3. If we stay in the region for couple days are there any other attractions we shouldn't miss?

      Thanks in advance for your tips.

      Henge near Stonehenge?

      Stonehenge Sep 22, 2008 at 7:53 PM

      In Summer 2004, I was able to see Stonehenge with my daughter's choral group.
      On the way back to our hotel, we drove by what I think was part of another henge. It wasn't too far from Stonehenge. I remember a curve in the road and a couple (?) of standing stones in a pasture that had sheep in it. I don't remember what our guide said about the spot. Does this vague description sound familiar to anyone? I would like to know the name of the spot.

      Stonehenge Apr 17, 2008 at 4:56 AM

      I want to take a private tour that allows entrance up close to the stones at dusk or dawn. Which time of day is better (for pictures... not concerned with amount of people)? We can choose... but the tour guide is leaning toward dawn since it is more convenient for him. I was leaning towrd dusk since I have only seen pics at Dusk and they are striking. If it is equally as beatiful at dawn then no point in inconveniencing the driver. If dusk is superior then I will dig my heals in. So.... Dusk? Dawn? No difference?
