Layover at Heathrow Airport

Looks like my wife will have a 12-13 hour layover at Heathrow in March. We've never spent time in England, other than at the airport, and wonder if there is anything we could do in that area rather than just sit and be exhausted at the airport? We're older, but adventurous... Is there time to go into London, or some other destination, with good connections from the airport? Thanks!

First Time London in December for a Book Worm

Hey guys,

I'm heading to London in mid December and wanted some suggestions on what to do, I've been looking a lot into it and I'm getting a bit overwhelmed with all the options for things to do! I am a bit of a book worm, with Dickens being among one of my favorite authors, so I definitely want to check out the Charles Dickens museum along with the Sherlock Holmes one and for my middle school self, take my picture at platform 9 3/4. With that being said, I wanted some suggestions of great…

London - Post Offices checking DVLA papers

This isn't strictly a travel query, but thought I'd try and find some local knowledge to tap into, and Thormtree has come up trumps for me in the past, so...

I'm filling out a D1 form, to apply for a provisional driving licence. I'd prefer not to send my passport off to the DVLA if I can help it, and have been told that some post offices will check all the documentation for me, so I don't have to. Does anyone know of any London post offices that offer this service? I read somewhere that they do…

London Heathrow: Transfer

I'm hoping to take a BA flight into London Heathrow and transfer to a BA flight to Dubai within a 2 1/2 hour layover time frame. Problem? No problem? If I do miss my connection, will BA automatically arrange for me to be on the next available flight? Thanks!

London - in love

Hey,
recently I went to stay in London again for a couple of days. I'd like to share with you my experiences and perhaps you'd find it interesting and appealing too. :-)

I stayed in a pretty hotel in Kensington close to Earl's Court Tube Station (3 minutes walk). It's called "The Rockwell" and obviously doesn't belong to a chain like Best Wester, Ibis and Co. It was a cosy small single room but I felt comfortable in it.
It's situated close to Hyde Park - such a great place to go for a run!

Stonehenge

Hey guys,

I'm planning to go to Stonehenge with a group of teenagers (15-17) and I was wondering if you can suggest any apps, games...that we can play in the bus and can help them learn as much as possible about the site?
I found [an online] quiz [about Stonehenge] and I was wondering if you can suggest anything else at all?

Cheers

Lord Mayor's Show 2014

Hey guys!

I'll be in London on November 8th, and just found out that the Lord Mayor's Show will be on that same day.

Is it worth going? Is the city too caotic on that day?

Thanks for the help!
