I just wanted to do a quick “sanity check” of our travel plans, please.

We’re scheduled to arrive at Heathrow at 7am.

For a couple of reasons, we are keen to take the train from Kings Cross onto Edinburgh, rather than fly. Of course booking an advance fare for the train is a lot cheaper albeit restrictive.

Given our arrival time, we think an 11am train from Kings Cross will be okay.

Hi everyone I'm looking for suggestions for a challenging (say 20-30km) one-day walk in the Chilterns. Preferably somewhere away from civilisation and with a few hills.

I'm going to be there in October with (sadly!) one free day between landing in Heathrow (Saturday) and work in Oxford (Monday).

Hello, Yonks ago I had a cheese omelet and chips for breakfast in a cafe near St. Paul's; I'd like to repeat the meal in the Kensington Gardens area. I'm an early riser so serving at 0730 or so. Any suggestions? Thanx.

I went to the UK on a working holiday visa in 08/09. I kind of came home without paying my taxes over there. I am now wanting to go back and visit a friend who recently moved there. Will I be allowed back in the UK or will I get a fine or do you think enough time has passed and its forgotten. I really want to go back and see my friend.

I am going to be in the Carlisle/Keswick area in July and early August. I come annually, and am looking to meet some fellow travellers or locals who also enjoy the outdoors and hiking in that area. I am a married teacher from Canada in my 50's. Any information about different hiking routes and trails would also be appreciated. Thanks,
Brenda
