Another option would be to rent a room in a university accommodation. Rooms that are usually occupied by Bachelor students become vacant at the end of May/beginning of June, when the second term ends and the summer holidays begin. At which point universities try to rent these out to summer schools, language course students, and all those people who need a ...

It's difficult... £143 / week (~£625) a month is a typical price for a long term stay in a London very small studio flat or a decent room in a shared apartment, and these often have minimum contracts (12 months minimum is quite common). And in Zone 1 or 2, finding decent accommodation for £143 a week in Zone 1 or 2 isn't easy even if you were staying a ...

Platform choice is key here. A and 2 are at opposite ends of their respective stations. Platform A is in a basement level of St Pancras.

They can if they want, but do not have to do it and most of the time they not do it. This is addressed in Paragraph 31A of the Immigration Rules, which states... Where a person has arrived in the United Kingdom with leave ...

Having checked with both the information desk in the airport, and emailing the airport, the answer is sadly no. Their response was: Thank you for your comments about drinking water fountains. Lack of suitable locations has been the main issue why we have not introduced the facilities, however, we have started a terminal development program and ...

@CSJC I built a tool to help you find exactly what you're looking for here: www.cleverlayover.com It will search all A->B + B->C combinations to find a cheaper way to get from A->C. Looking into the data, it is actually quite effective: 33% of searches have some form of savings, and the savings average > $300 when they exist. Try it out and let me know what ...

(Auto) Top-up Online Another option would be to avoid ticket machines and manned booths altogether. Once you purchase an Oyster card (with cash, so that your credit card won't be a problem), you can top it up online by registering on Oyster Online, provided it is not a Visitor Oyster for which to date online top-up is not available. Even better you can ...

Tourists planning to visit the UK can actually buy a Visitor Oyster card in their home countries, if they live in one of 24 countries where local travel agents sell the cards. For instance, people in the US can visit Rail Europe or VisitBritain Shop to purchase a Visitor Oyster card before leaving. If you aren't in one of those countries, the TfL Visitor ...
