You need to get a VAT refund from the merchant when you make the purchase. The refund form is filled by the seller, at the time of the purchase. Not all sellers participate (look for "Tax Free" or "VAT Refund" stickers), and not all purchases are eligible (there's certain limit, IIRC 50 GBP or something like that, per purchase). Drop-off box for later ...

Your citizenship is not relevant; where you live is. You need to leave the EU at the latest three months after you bought the goods. I think you may already be too late unless you are still in the EU and are planning to leave it shortly.

There's a massive hill to walk up, but there's footpaths and lights along the whole way. 25 mins seems a little short to me though, I'd allow a tiny bit longer However... Church ...

The google maps page you link isn't an accurate representation of the walk - your end point isn't really anywhere near the airport terminals. This is a bit more realistic. I'd reccommend getting a taxi - £8 or less for the journey would be my estimate. Your concerns about walking are in fact perfectly justified - the route to the airport from the town centre ...
