    • Heathrow Central Station to Hoppa - disabled passenger

      Heathrow 23 hours ago

      My relative, who has limited mobility, will be travelling by coach to the Heathrow Bus Station, taking the Hotel Hoppa bus from stops 9 or 10, staying in a hotel for the night, then flying from T2 the next day. Whilst my relative is able to walk, she cannot do so for long distances or with luggage.

      I am concerned that she will have difficulty getting from her coach to the Hoppa bus stop, and then from the Hoppa bus stop to T2 Departures. I emailed the Heathrow special assistance team and received an unhelpful automated response. National Express have not yet responded. There is a Help Point with a telephone inside the Central Bus Station, but I'm not sure of the kind of assistance that can be provided.

      Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    • Confused about bus vs heathrow connect option

      Heathrow Yesterday

      I have an international flight arriving at terminal 3. I will have only carry on baggage. I will need to transfer to terminal 4 to catch a flight to Malta from another carrier (no affiliations with first flight). I will have my boarding pass to go to Malta.

      I am confused as to options. I have read to follow purple signs marked "flight connections" and catch a bus that will take me to terminal 4. I have also read to make my way to Heathrow Connect and take this to Terminal 4.

      Questions: where do you catch the connecting bus and it that something different from the central bus station shown on the terminal 3 map?

      Do I follow a different sign (not the purple flight connection sign) to take the Heathrow Connect?

      For a time crunch, what is the better option?

      I know that I will need to go through security at the new terminal but will I need to go through passport control?

      Thank you.

    • Heathrow transit

      Heathrow Oct 23, 2016 at 1:15 PM

      My wife is due to transit heathrow airport when she flies from Moscow to Shannon. Is there a border control between terminal 5 and terminal 2. I understand from the UK government website that a transit visa is not required if passengers do not pass through border control. However, British Airways insist that a transit visa is required. She will have bags checked to final destination in Moscow, so she expects to make a direct airside transit. Can you enlighten me please?

    • Stansted to London, sightseeing 2-4-1, London to Luton airport

      London Oct 15, 2016 at 12:58 PM


      We (1 adult and another 20 year student from EU ) are staying in London for last 7 days of January 2017, hotel is near Paddington station.

      Now I am looking for best transfer between airports, transportation in London city, to WB Studio London (Euston -> Watford Junction), journey to Oxford or maybe somewhere else and sightseeing (free museums and 2-4-1 offers.)

      Our Ryanair flight lands to Stansted on 25th January (Wed) 7.30am, and we fly back from Luton on January 31th 16:30 (Tue). So I'd like some advice on these things:

      1. How much time will we need in Stansted when we arrive to go from the plane to shuttle stop (bus or train)? Considering queues, passport checking (we are from EU), is airport very busy in these morning hours? Coach companies recommend to leave 1 hour, will it be enough? For example, in Paris Beauvais airport walking from plane to shuttle bus took us less than 10min, but France is in Schengen Area, and UK not :/.

      2. And flying back, it is recommended to be in Luton airport 2 hours before flight. With construction works going on in Luton, will it be enough? I read about huge traffic congestion to enter airport teritory and people leaving vehicles and going on foot miles not to miss the flight and some missing it. Can I trust coach companies written arrival time, will traffic situation be better in January? Or shortly, what time should I be in Luton airport, if Ryanair flight is 16:30.

      Now coaches and trains

      3. Infamous Easybus. In their website, I even found tickets for ~ 2-3~4£ (for two persons to and back it was around 12£ - similar to single shuttle ticket price) and 60min early/late availibility to board a coach. But do there exist people who were satisfied with Easybus services (whose bus came on time or just came, not full, and didn't have to take taxi to Airport). I heard that Easybus sell tickets to National express coaches, but the price is really lower than National Express. Do National Express tickets buyers have priority or something to Easybus buyers when bus arrives? (If arrives :D). Is there someone who had good experience with easy bus?

      4. National Express. I found "funny fares" from Stansted for £5 but if I correctly understand if we are late or early due to flight, we couldn't take other bus. (+£5 for ability to have flexible times makes me want to use Stansted Express train advance tickets for £8 (available 30days before). Stansted express ticket is available that day all hours?).

      National Express tickets from London to Luton airport on January 31 are for 12-13 pounds which are not very tempting. And these amendable but not refundable tickets, you have to amend the hour of travelling online in the website, you can't just board other bus which arrived in the place? Or what? How is National Express reliability?

      5. I saw Stansted Citylink to St. Pancras (£8) and Greenline to Luton (£10) coaches. Do they have flexible times, if we are late/early? And reliability? (Terravision resells these tickets as Easybus does with National Express :D)

      6. And lastly, I'd very much like a train to Luton airport. As we'll live in Paddington neighbourhood, I think to depart from St Pancras railway station. I saw that there are different train companies (Thameslink and East Midlands). Which would be better? Will we have to be on exact hour, or will ticket be valid all day (like Stansted express train)? And there is a bus from Luton railway station parkway to Luton airport, how long does it take, I hope it won't make us late to the flight if there is traffic congestion :(. I searched for train prices in this website: https:/… It now says £15,50 for a single ticket, but 12 weeks before journey there will be cheaper advance tickets. Does anyone know how much advance train tickets to Luton will be cheaper? And will they be tied to exact hour and minute or could I choose a time to board the train myself? I couldn't find this to make comparison to other means of transport.

      7. When I'll get to central London, I plan to buy 7day paper travelcard 1-2 zone from railway station to use 2-4-1 offers. But if I had Stansted express and train to Luton tickets, they would qualify for 2-4-1, right? So maybe 7day travelcard loaded on Oyster card would be better planning to go Watford Junction (WB Studio London). I guess I'll go there on Saturday to avoid peak/off peak pricing. How long before does WB announce their tickets, it's not available yet. P.S. I read about cheap decoy train tickets, but maybe I'll do without them.

      8. Living near Paddington, what attractions I could reach on foot and how much time it would take in realistic thinking? We don't have problem with walking, but if raining prefer not to get much wet :D. So transport card will be needed.

      9. From 2-4-1 offers my favourites are Tower of London and London Zoo. P.S. How is London Zoo in winter, are all animals available to see? What else are worth of visiting (not tourist rip-offs) from offers? I am planning to visit Natural History, British, Science, V&A, National Gallery museums and to escape possible bad weather. How queues to the museums will be in late January. :)

      So my main question is: what is the best budget- wise transport from Stansted and after seven days to Luton airport? The one reliable which won't make us miss our flight . And which hour to choose according to flight times?

      P.S. Sorry for such a long post, I just had to put my thoughts into written words. And thanks very much for your answers.

    • How does my 4 days itinerary review sound?

      London 17 hours ago

      Hi there

      Me and my partner are planning to go to London next year in Feb and we have already purchased the 3 Days London pass which seems a good value given we intend to go to some attractions more than it would have costed us to pay for. This is the London Pass i.e.

      We intend to go to the following attractions
      - Tower Of London
      - Hop on/hop off bus tour
      - Thames River Boat Cruise
      - Westmintser Abbey
      - London Bridge Experience
      - Tower Bridge Exhibition
      - Windsor Castle
      - Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum
      - Wimbledon Tour Experience

      Will depart from HK & arrive Heathrow @ 5am and have already booked the Airbnb near Waterloo station (around 10 min walk). I assume we will arrive at place for check in at 7:30am given early in the morning (correct me if I am wrong) as I assume the waiting in the immigration may be less in early morning and that it takes an hour to arrive to the property? The host is very flexible for check in and allowed me to go as early as I wanted.

      So here is my rough itinerary plan and let me know what you guys think

      Day 1 (Friday) - Check in say @ 7:30am. Drop off the luggage and off we head to our first day trip

      We will head for London Hop On bus tour. Now I need to get/redeem the ticket to get activated. Given I am staying in Waterloo (near Archbishop Park/Herclues street around Lambeth North train station to be precise), so therefore where is the closest place I need to get to redeem the ticket given I am not familar with the place as we have a choice on the following places:

      11a Charing Cross Road, London, WC2H 0EP
      or bus stops @:
      Duncannon Street St. Martin-in-the-Fields, Stop G
      Park Lane Southbound Park Lane, Southbound, Coach stop at Marble Arch
      Aldwych West arm, Tourist Stop, Outside No. 1
      Kings Cross St Pancras Road, Bus Stop T
      Tooley Street Tourist stop, opposite London Bridge Experience 7 Tower Hill Tourist bus stop, opposite Tower Hill Station
      Tower Hill Tourist bus stop, opposite Tower Hill Station
      Parliament Square Stop C, HM Treasury
      York Road North of Chichley Street

      As I assume the bus tour starts at 9am, will ride around and then go to as in order (please correct me if I am going in the wrong order or whatever it suits the route best!)

      1) RIDE AND GET OFF @ Westminster Abbey

      2) Buckingham Palace (Hopefully we can see the change of guard @ 11:30am if weather permits and if that is the time that starts)


      3) Tower Of London

      4) Tower Bridge

      4) London Bridge Experience

      5) Borough Market (as I am aware it closes at 5pm, hopefully we can get there by 4pm to stroll around). This is NOT a MUST though


      I assume they will all be finished before the attraction closing time average @ 5pm?

      Day 2 (Saturday) - This is where it gets challenging! We want to go to Windsor Castle, Wimbledom Museum & the Wimbledon Tour experience. I would like to ask for your suggestion. Do you think we can go half day in WC and then go to Wimbledom afterwards? Or do you think it is too rush and requires a day to tour in WC? Because if so, we might have to sacrafice the Wimbledom and can go on the next day.

      As I assume that weekend is counted as OFF PEAK all day for train/tube?

      Because we got a London Pass, we can get FREE travel from Paddington to Windsor Castle, so we will catch the train from Waterloo to Paddington @ around 8:30am. Then from Paddington, we show our London Pass to the train staff & then we can get free travel to WC (according to the London Pass benefit) transferring in Slough. Assuming we arrive at 9:30am. How many hours you think is required to go to the whole castle as well as having a walk in Eton and maybe take a boat ride on the French Brothers boat? Because if you tell me "well, its going to take you the whole day", then like said, we will not go to Wimbledon or otherwise feel free to advice what time is good to take the train from Windsor Eton train station?

      Day 3 (Sunday) - Continuing with my London Pass, we can go:
      1) Thames River Boat Cruise starting @ 8:30am - ride for 1-2 hours round trip and I assume it finishes at Waterloo? Correct me if I am wrong.
      2) Have brunch
      3) Take train from Waterloo to Wimbledon tour & museum departing around 12pm.
      4) Finish at 3 or 4pm? Return back to London

      SUGGESTION AT NIGHT for dinner?

      Day 4: (Monday) Because my London Pass expires, I can go freely without any worries as in order:
      1) London Eye
      2) Big Ben
      3) St. Paul's Cathedral (not a MUST)
      4) Chinatown

      PLUS ANY OTHER SUGGESTIONS for the day/night?

      Day 5: Leave Heathrow airport for the 12:15pm flight. PS: What is the time recommeded to travel off peak to avoid rush hour from Waterloo station? 7:30am or 8am is ok?

      Sorry for the long message and would be appreciated for your comments and suggestions!

    • Public transportation from York to Stratford

      by elenasc Online Now Dec 1, 2012 at 1:23 PM

      We will be travelling to Great Britain this June. I had hoped to go to Stratford from York and stay a couple of days before continuing to Chipping Campden (where we are renting a cottage for a week). Then on the way back to London we would stop in Oxford for another couple of days.

      The problem is that even though in terms of location this makes the most sense, I can't seem to find reasonable public transport from York to Stratford (13 hours and 2 stops!) whereas I can get to Oxford from York directly in just a little over 3 hours. Is there any more direct public transport from York to Stratford that I'm missing, or is backtracking the only way to make this work? (Renting a car is not an option.) Can anyone help? Thanks.

    • Trying to find a B&B/Hotel in York I stayed at 20 years ago

      by AuntyDan Online Now Jul 23, 2012 at 6:30 PM

      I hope someone here can help me. In 1994 I spent my honeymoon in York. For our upcoming 20th anniversary I wanted to revisit it and ideally stay in the same place we originally did but am having a hard time locating the B&B/Hotel we stayed in. (I think it would have been classed as a B&B, but even that detail is hazy to me now!)

      Here's what I remember about it:

      Located outside the inner city walls, but within easy walking distance of them. (5/10 minutes max.)

      A Victorian house with a lot of Victorian interior decorations, including a stuffed Owl in a glass jar in or near the reception desk

      4-poster beds (At least in the room we had.)

      It had a high-end restaurant with a prix fixe menu. Back in 1994 it was 25 pounds per person, no idea what it would be now.

      Both self-service and full service at breakfast cooked to order

      Of course it is possible it has either closed or changed hands/names since 1994, but if anyone knows York hotels well and can positively identify one way or another it I'd really appreciate it.

    • Trains from York to Edinburgh

      by qrpw Online Now Apr 2, 2010 at 7:20 PM

      Hi everybody, I'm going to York and Edinburgh for a holiday next month.

      Our hotel in Edinburgh is close to Edinburgh Park Station, not the main Edinburgh Train Station. Is there an option to take a train from York to Edinburgh Park, and does it cost more or less?

      Best Department Stores in and around York?

      by Hexen1012 Online Now Dec 7, 2009 at 12:42 AM

      Strange question to ask - but i have family who are currently on a working holiday in York, and rather than buy and send a present from Australia (and incur the huge costs), I was thinking of buying online through a department store in York? (most like a gift card)

      Marks & Spencer... Browns..... I just dont know what there is, and which would given them (25 old) the best selection!

    • Help Needed

      by jmanlfc Online Now Oct 15, 2009 at 8:56 AM

      Looking to book a Cabin/Lodge for myself and my wife for our first anniversaty in the north of England,

      Basically my wife has recently lost her father, and I was looking to take her away for a couple of nights, somewhere we could relax enjoy a nice walk, and also somewhere we could slip into the hot tub and enjoy a celebratory bottle of bubbly for our first anniversary and for my wife to let loose given her torrid year.

      However I booked Yellowtop country park £200 for 2 nights, including Hot Tub, however I have received an email following my booking and I wondered if anybody else thought it was a bit harsh, and would you cancel as the first questions...

      It is a out door hot tub, No shelter.
      The invoice is due now, If not is not paid by Saturday we will cancell your booking, Thank you.
      Yellowtop on behalf of Paula.

      Also as a fallback does anybody know of any other places as similair, as it sounds sad but given the climate, Im on a budget and need to watch the pennys,,, so need to spend probably a maximum of £200 as have £150 aside for beuty treatment and more on top for a couple of nights out for dinner etc...

      Help please, firstly to let me know if you think I should have cancelled the booking based on the fact I only asked her when the payment was due and did the hot tub have a cover incase it rained.

      by jcourtnellsmith Online Now Oct 10, 2009 at 4:13 AM

      Old married couple spending three days this month in York. Years since we were there. Do the local buses have such a thing as day ticket tariffs because our Scottish free passes don't work in England ? Where are the most interesting places that local buses journey to ? Thanks all

      Starting to Plan for the Viking Fest

      by djhartmannn Online Now Oct 5, 2009 at 2:09 PM

      I have been tasked to plan a multi-family (6-10) trip to the spring Viking Fest in York.

      #1 Housing: Is there any single nice facility that will handle us all w/o breaking the budget or is there a street (or area) with a sufficient cluster of close establishments that you would recommend. (weekend apartments would be most excellent)

      #2 Pubs and restaurants where we can meet up or suggested rally points that will not be hard to find.

      #3 What "must do" activities will require for us to purchase or reserve ahead of time?

      #4 Overall suggested itinerary for the weekend.

      Everything I hear suggests that it is a great event and am very excited about this visit to York.

      Thanks in advance
