Dear Thorntree,

As I stated in the post just below, I am heading to heading to London this summer for a little over a week. I am a (part-time) Britisher, but it's been over 6 years since I was last in sunny old England. In the meantime, amongst other things, I spent one year traveling around India. Now, I am something of a colonial history buff, and I expended all kinds of energy in India running around visiting places of interest connected to British India, from the well-known to the utterly…

London

Greetings,

I have a little over a week to spend in London this summer. London is a city I know well, having lived there on and off for a number of years, but I haven't stepped foot in the place (or indeed in Europe at all) since 2010. I know nothing of the London hostel scene, but I need cheap accommodation, so I presume I'll be heading to a hostel. Does anyone have any recommendations? I don't care what the atmosphere is like. All I want is a good night's sleep, and somewhere reasonably…

Hi all,
Does anyone know a cheap and easy way to stay the night between two flights at/near Stansted airport? (I've done the sleeping outside security bit, but that was from missing a flight, try to plan better this time :) Tripadvisor and the rest only give hotels and B&Bs but doesn't say anything about getting there and away (early in the morning), unless there is a taxi possibility, which is probably the same price as a cheap overnight. Been thinking along the lines of a pub with only one or…

Hi all,

My girlfriend is Mexican and after searching and finding that she requires no Visa for up to a 6 month visit, we have bought plane tickets for her to come here for 5 months (start of August until the start of January). I assumed that it would be fairly certain she would get in with no problems but I googled the other day and found some stories about people getting turned away at the border and ever since I've felt a bit sick with worry she won't be let in.

I think we should meet all…

Hello! I've been looking into places to go with my partner the past few days but figured this site was my best bet to finding out where to go. Really just want to get away for a few days maybe to somewhere like Cornwall. Have considered glamping as have never tried that, but really stuck for ideas! Just looking for something to look forward to, and something not too expensive! If you have any questions or suggestions please let me know, thanks :)

I'm arriving in Paddington Station with a one day transport pass and need to fly out from Heathrow the following day. I wish to book a room on AirBnB and would appreciate suggestions for a neighborhood location which is convenient to Paddington and Heathrow and still close to the hubbub of the city. Thanks for any help ...

My husband and i have booked 2 nights at Tetbury from 10th - 12th September. I just looked up accommodation in the Cotswolds and Tetbury came up and the accommodation looked alright and affordable. We will have a hire car but just wondering where we go to for the villages you see pop up on google images when you search Cotswolds. Looking at maps it seems it covers so many different places in England but i don't know which are the must see ones. Also being September are the trees changing colour…

Hello!
I am going to be in London for two moths this summer and am looking for a reputable wifi rental service. I used one last summer when I was in Japan and it made my traveling much easier. I have searched on the web and other forums but most people just get responses of "There are wifi hotspots all around the uk/london/whatever city the person is asking about" so just to clarify- I don't care if there are lots of wifi hotspots. I want to be able to look up directions if I need to or call…
