Hey guys!

In a few days I'll be traveling from the U.S. to London and then from London to Amman. The only problem is I arrive at Heathrow at 9:10am but depart for Amman at 5:05pm. I'll have several hours to spare, and I'm not a very patient person. Do you guys think it's a good idea to go into the city and explore it for a bit, even if I'm only in London for 2 or 3 hours? If so, what's the cheapest way to get from Heathrow to downtown? What are some underrated attractions in London? I've…

I'm planning a trip this summer using United miles and the final leg of my trip is London - NYC (this is open-jaw with Star Alliance partners - I'm getting to London on a separate BA flight not part of my mileage flight).
UK airport departure taxes are insanely expensive, especially when compared to departing from Brussels or France. The difference in my total fare is about $125 more if I fly to NYC from London vs. Paris or Brussels. (I'm looking at about $275 in taxes if I fly home LHR-JFK vs…

Hi guys! I have some friends coming to visit us in London at the beginning of June and we are going out for dinner with them one night. I'm looking for recommendations for places to eat with a river view within easy travel of Soho (because they will have just seen a play in Soho and I don't want to have them traipsing all over the city). Not too expensive either, as they'll be travelling on the australian dollar! I have a few ideas but thought I'd get some more suggestions as we haven't eaten…

Me and my girlfriend have recently bought our first home. Was a struggle but worked hard and have now achieved what we both wanted to do at 24.
Now we are thinking to rent our home out and go travelling. I'm trying to find someone who has done this and talk to them about it really.

Hello, we are staying at the Rose & Crown in Snettisham over the Mayday long weekend arriving mid-day Saturday and probably leaving midday Monday: moving around will be by bus and the coastal hopper/. So we don't have too much room to move - it would be lovely though if anyone could recommend places to see that are relatively close to our base and reachable by the aforementioned public transport - we don't want to go too far with only being in the area for basically 2 days: I know the…

Morning all,

My girlfriend is heading to the states (Orlando) on Friday and offered to bring back some Whisky for me. I had a quick look on the customs website and it seems to suggest you can only bring back 1L?

Considering the average bottle is 750ml it’s not a lot at all. It’s not really a saving considering you’ve spent £500+ on a return flight and you get 20% off on a 750ml bottle. That’s like £10 on an average whisky but you have to go to America to receive the discount …

I came back…

Later this year I will be going to London. From London I want to go on a tour of Europe and would really like to see Amsterdam, Belgium, Vienna, Lucerne, Italian Lakes region, Cinque Terra and Sicily if I could fit it in, but most importantly I want to eat really yummy comfort style food and sweets & desserts & do food based walking tours in Belgium, Italy (Rome) and Paris. I don't need to see the sights of Paris and Rome as I have seen them before. I cant find a tour that covers all…

Ok hitting London this weekend for some football and beer

Decided to head uptown to the bright lights of capital city. Have not done this in a while and wondering what are the decent pubs, late bars around Leicester Sq and Trafalgar Sq areas. There will be 4/5 of us and most of them like their music cheesy and danceable(not me)

Any decent clubs around these areas as easier to get back home from here with late buses etc.All recommendations welcome.

Cheers

So, I have applied for a UK visa, in Kenya. And at the visa centre I had an argument with the the officer collecting my documents. She insisted that I needed two blank pages facing each other to get a visa. But I told her that I specifically checked the internet and the only info I got was that I need a blank page for my visa and another blank page for the entry/exit stamp at immigrations. Can anyone clarify her claims? And why is there no info on the uk visa website about this? Note that I have…
