    What is your nationality? A Schengen visa will not get you into the UK, not even for one day. – Nate Eldredge Jan 29 '19 at 3:19
  • Indian nationality – Taher Jan 29 '19 at 3:22

Citizens of India need a visa to visit the UK. https://www.gov.uk/check-uk-visa/y/india/tourism/no

There isn't any exception if you only visit for one day, or if you come by train, or if you already have a Schengen visa. None of that is relevant. You would need a visa.

  • What about Transist without visa clause if I would travelling by air and have ticket back(leaving UK ) to my work place 23:59hrs. – Taher Jan 29 '19 at 3:27
  • I am traveling to dusseldorf for business related work have Ctype visa – Taher Jan 29 '19 at 3:29
  • You still need a standard UK visitor visa, I believe the Visitor In Transit visa is not applicable in this case because you are not arriving by plane. It's possible if you are flying from Dusseldorf to somewhere else then you can go through Heathrow (but not leave the airport) without a visa, that's a different question I am not sure about that. – chx Jan 29 '19 at 3:36

    @Taher The case mentioned by you assumes you have an article 10 residence card (which you don't). Unless your spouse is an EU national and you have an EU residence card and you are travelling with them, you will need a visa to enter the UK. – RedBaron Jan 29 '19 at 5:01

    @Taher He can invite you but you will need a visa as said in the answer. To avail visa free service you need to have a residence card in your name (along with other requirements already mentioned in my earlier comment). Your cousin's card (if he has one) is useless. – RedBaron Jan 29 '19 at 11:44
