Get an Oyster Card or Use Your Contactless Payment Card If you plan on travelling a total of two journeys in two days then you won't need a 2-day travel ticket (nor 2 day travel cards) as that would be to expressive, as well as overkill. The simplest option would be to get two one way tickets covering the zones you need. These will definitely be cheaper ...

A couple of places spring to mind. From around Greenwich observatory is one of them. You don't need to get inside the observatory. If you arrive to the Cutty Sark DLR station and then walk from there to the observatory, you'll be climbing up a steep incline toward it - from that path you get a really nice view of the city. The problem though is that you'd ...

1 Dorset Mudeford is famous for its row of colourful huts - and for the prices some of them have fetched, upwards of £100,000 - it also has some of the few beach huts you can actually sleep in, including Needleview, which sleeps four in two singles and a bunk. There's a kitchen with gas burner, grill and fridge, and the use of nearby loos and showers.

To go as smoothly as possible, I would book into one of the hotels close to Heathrow that has a regular bus to/from the airport. Then after spending time in central London, I would travel to Heathrow on the tube after 8pm, so you get a seat. Then get the bus to the hotel and the bus back from the hotel the next day. (The last tube is late enough to ...

The fastest way is going from King's Cross St Pancras tube station to Paddington tube station first via Hammersmith & City line or Circle line/Circle line and then interchange to the Heathrow Express at Paddington rail station. The trip takes about 30-35mins, plus 5-10 mins from the rail station to terminal 2 and <20mins waiting time (<5mins for ...

The fastest way is probably to get a taxi. The journey time is 44 mins (though probably a bit more allowing for traffic), but there will be very short wait times at Kings Cross and it will drop you at the door of your Heathrow terminal. The cost is about 75 pounds, which split four ways is not bad: for four adults that is actually cheaper than the Heathrow ...

Use the Tube? Take the Piccadilly line to Heathrow Terminals 1, 2, 3 station. The trip takes about an hour and there is service every 10 minutes or so all day.

Regarding the attractions - it is not possible. But regarding the Boat cruise, you actually can enter it multiple times. You will receive 1-day ticket (see http://www.londonpass.com/london-attractions/thames-river-boat-cruise.html) and within those 24 hours, you can use it multiple times. I was there last year, activated the 24-hour ticket in the afternoon ...

From How does the London Pass work?: Note: Passes can only be used at each attraction once. However, as noted by JakubJ, for the Thames boat trip, what you actually get is Make the most of your London Pass: Free 24 hour hop-on, hop-off cruise ticket worth over £18 So for this attraction (alone), you get as many trips as you like, ...

There is no prescribed set of questions; the IO will be trying to determine if you qualify as a visitor under Appendix V of the rules. So a full interview will cover purpose, length, maintenance, accommodation, returnability, and overstay risk. Assuming you present an American (or other non-visa national) passport, your landing interview will go something ...

You can maybe find some private bus company unless there are rules that ban this, it might be cheaper but will surely take longer and you risk getting stuck in traffic. yes, by using the mountain railways on the alps, but it costs a lot and they are pretty far off from Zürich so it would take a long time, not a good idea without any stops in the middle. ...

You have another option which will be priced midway between those two, but it will offer you much better security. This is how I would do it: Ticket 1: An "open jaw" ticket. You fly Chicago-Dublin; and then you fly from London-Chicago. [This is not two oneway tickets. It is a single open jaw ticket. It will be priced as half way between the cost of a ...
