Trying to book a ticket for this Sat from Nottingham to London. Due to track updates the direct east midlands train is no longer in service on the weekends. One must book to Grantham and then change trains. My question is I have a choice of either only having an 8 min window to change trains or a 42 min window to change trains. Not sure I want to spend 42 mins in between trains at Grantham but as I do not know the train station I don't know if 8 mins is sufficient to make the change…

trains at gatwick/book ahead or use contactless card
Apr 25, 2018, 5:20 PM
I went on the southern train site to book from Gatwick to London Victoria. We will be arriving at Gatwick on May 5 ant 5:55 AM. The price for one ticket was 16.20 pounds. However, above the price it said "with oyster or contactless payment from 8.30." I don't believe I can use contactless payment online, so does this mean that if I don't book in advance and use my contactless credit card at the station I will get a better…

It's pretty well known that London is an expensive city (for both travelers and locals). So I put together this video list of free and cheap secret viewpoints of the city - honestly, these are better than the London Eye and The Shard: https://youtu.be/CqHm5yxBgyQ

Has anybody else been to these?

Hi all,
We don't have a firm itinerary for our road trip through England as yet but we are looking to go by ferry from Liverpool to Belfast some time around 8-12th of June. Is it necessary to book in advance or can you just show up on the day and get a ticket. If you can show up and get a ticket how much more expensive is it? Oh by the way we will be leaving the car in Liverpool so just passenger requirement only.
Thanks.

I've searched the forums and scoured the web, but there doesn't seem to be a consensus answer to which if England's famous college towns is the best to visit. So I'm going to throw the question to the esteemed and experienced Thorn Tree crowd - and hopefully answer the question once and for all - which is the better day trip, Oxford or Cambridge?

Rules of the contest:
-The trip will be from London, by train.
-No taking other trains or buses once in the town (taxis or other ride sharing vehicles…

Hi all,
Am organising a day out in London for myself and some friends on May 5th. We are all into sketching and art. We are travelling to Euston so are planning to take in a bit of Camden and most likely will get lunch there at one of the food stalls. Hopefully, if the weather is nice we can sit outside and sketch but we need some suggestions for when the weather is not so nice. Any nice coffee shops or bars with interesting views of London, for example? Any free/low cost art events happening…

Restaurants, museums, entertainment... there must be something you will enjoy !
Have a look:
