Welcome to the UK, described by Lonely Planet in the latest UK guide as "simply one of the most beautiful islands on earth". You'll find that whilst people can appear flippant and/or sarcastic on this branch, it's only part of the unique British sense of humour so don't take it personally.

Please read this thread first before you ask a question, hopefully you'll find your answer already inside!

Feel free to add anything relevant to the thread too. Before we start though, here's some advice from…

I'm having a terrible time trying to find an answer to this...

I'll be in London for a concert on Sept. 24. I know the area where I'm staying (Leicester Square) and venue (Roundhouse) well... no worries there.

Here's where the problem comes in! I would like to go to another concert in Guildhall, Portsmouth on Sept. 23 or Symphony Hall, Birmingham on Sept. 25. How can I get to one (or both) of these places from London, and more importantly, is there a train that will get me back to my hotel…

My wife and I are first time visitors to London, but unfortunately have only 36 hours there and we are not sure how to best utilize our time. We are landing around 11 am at Heathrow on Saturday and have another flight at 2pm Monday. We are staying at Earl's Court and are mainly interested in historical and traditional London. We definitely intend to see Buckingham Palace, Westiminster Palace, Tower Bridge, and Borough Market, but are not sure what else we should see to make the best use of…

Hi, I need to renew my passport soon and was going to try online.

Anyone know of any photo shops in the central london area (cheapside) that provide the photo service that gives you the code.

I would like to keep my old passport but understand that you still need to send in your old one. Does it provide you with the address to send it too and some reference to give as well as the option to get it returned.

Is it possible to get them both delivered to your work address rather than home address

Hello :) I'm currently studying a degree in English Literature abroad and looking for some advice with staying in the UK. I will be looking to do a part-time job for the time I am there (one place I have applied for is very happy to take me on so far). I was wondering if someone could explain the UK income tax system to me? I've found this tax calculator but not sure how it works for my level of income which will end up around £800-1000 a month. Any help would be great! :)
