York is a difficult place for the motorist at any time. For the obvious historical reasons the city centre is not geared up for anything but light-to-reasonable traffic but does have a linked series of single-carriageway roads circumnavigating the Roman Walls to help motorists avoid traversing the city centre itself. A few miles further out you have an ...

Of sorts, Ulverston has a large Christmas market every year, called the Ulverston Dickensian Christmas Festival. It has grown quite large over the years, and takes in most of the central streets of the town. Quite a few locals (I'm one) dress up in Dickensian attire, and get into the spirit of things. I think you could safely say the market has German ...

https://www.gov.uk/browse/visas-immigration/short-visit-visas The Family Visitor visa is intended for visits of 6 months. If your cousin is studying in Germany I suspect she won't be coming for that long. If it's just a simple visit then General Visitor visa appears to be the correct one.

I don't think the Family Visit Visa is an option for 2 reasons, based on the published eligibility requirements. Reason 1: Ineligible family relationship The list of people who can be visited under a Family visa is given as: spouse or civil partner children parents or siblings grandparents or grandchildren your spouse’s or civil partner’s siblings ...

Use google Maps' Historical Traffic Using maps.google.com you can show traffic for arbitrary times of the week: I use this regularly to answer these types of questions. On perhaps its most useful occasion I determined that landing at LAX at 6:45pm on a weekday was a way better idea than landing at 5:00pm. Note: I don't really know whether the map ...

There is the list of schools where you can study with Student Visa. If your private school is not in this list it is no possible to study there for you.

I've done the walk from Church Street in Luton up to the airport before. It's not going to win any awards for "picturesque walk of the year", but as long as you're fit it's fine. 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 ...

Here is the UK border agency's guide for the Intra-Company Transfer Tier 2 visa. You can download the policy guidance PDF from the link on the right hand side of the page. Page 52 of that PDF says the following: Absences from the UK 223. The UK, Channel Islands, Isle of Man and Republic of Ireland form a common travel area. If you leave this area ...

You do not need a Transit Visa in this case as your layover does not require you to get out of the airport. As long as you have a Valid US Visa and you are an Indian citizen anyway, you're good to go. Also, just as the others posted. Check the links provided in the comments which should serve to answer your question completely regarding Transit Visa policy ...

When you say "for 24 hours" do you mean a little longer or little less than 24 hours? If you, as you wrote, intend to leave the airport, you'll need to go through border control. You can apply for a Visitor in Transit visa, which will let you leave the airport. You will need to prove that you intend to leave the UK within 48 hours, for example by showing ...

The document you quote is aimed at those pursuing academic qualifications. You can pursue up to 30 days of study on a General Visitor Visa, with some restrictions. From the linked document: You can: take your 30 days study in one go or over a number of shorter periods use the time for recreational courses such as activity courses or arts and ...

Most hotels require all guests staying in the room to be registered, and will charge extra if more than the set number of guests is registered for the room. So you could register your sister and (I presume her) husband, however you could likely need to pay extra for the 3 guests - even though there will not be 3 guests there at the same time. Alternatively ...

"Restroom" may be understood, but "bathroom" means exactly what it says (you know, shower & bath) and "prop room" is unknown. What you mean is either "public conveniences" if you are extremely polite, but "toilet" and "loo" are the well known terms you search.

In addition to Mark's suggestions, there's Bryn Bras Castle, 10 minutes drive from Snowdonia National Park and Caernafon. And also Glandyfi Castle on the southern edge of Snowdownia National Park.

Yes it is conventional to tip taxis in the UK, just rounding up the fare something like 10%-15% is more than adequate. A professional licensed cab driver isn't going to say anything if you choose not to tip but unlicensed minicabs might ask for a tip. If you're getting a minicab from an office (they often have a yellow light at night) then agree the fare in ...

There are actually several, as found in a quick google search. But one that matches your area certainly seems to be Bodelwyddan Castle. It is just under an hour from Chester, 10 minutes from the seaside town of Rhyl, and half an hour away from the Victorian Pier at Llandudno. A similarly close one is Ruthin Castle Hotel, although it's a bit closer to the ...
