Free at heathrow airport? what? :(

Re: wifi at heathrow airport

by johngayton

Not only NOT free but on the contrary very expensive!! You are probably cheaper to use the pay as you go terminals if you only need a short-term connection.

thanks guys, guess il stick to a book:)

Re: wifi at heathrow airport

No unless you are flying First Class on British Airways, which gives you free access in the Concorde Lounge.

Re: wifi at heathrow airport

by johngayton

Great! So I'll pay the extra 500 quid, or more, for my flight just so that I can get freebie wi-fi LOL ;) But it's a thought - maybe if you get close enough to the lounge (without actually using it) you might pick up the signal :-)) Hmmmm...then thinking further - I bet you need an access code which you can only get from the lounge staff :-((

Re: wifi at heathrow airport

by wise23girl

Well Emirates have free access in Business Class. That would be cheaper than First but maybe they are not in Terminal One. LOL. Yes take a good book. You still have Leics link to check .
Actually you sometimes find a free link in unexpected places(foyer of hotel in Paris) and have to pay where you thought they might provide a service. Marg

Yes, as noted it is expensive in Heathrow.

Heathrow WiFi offers:
T-Mobile
BT Openzone
The Cloud Networks

If you have a subscription to those or a corporate program like "iPass Connect", you can access for no additional cost outside your normal membership subscription price.

All the business lounges offer WiFi (with an access code).

nothing is free at heathrow. I think they are actually charging for oxygen these days. That airport is a shocker!

Travel Tips for London

I hate to admit it, but you...

by enorin78

I hate to admit it, but you must to the sight seeing things. Big Ben, Parliament, Westminster, Leicester Square. Just having fun with my friends. We like to go to the pub Duke of Argyll in Soho. I also really loved the Ash Wed. service at Westminster Abbey. Otherwise we just hang out at the coolege. My other favorite thing is reading at Coffee Republic in Picadilly Square.

Internet Cafe

by Marpessa

On Oxford you will find a large Internet cafe (part of a chain) called 'easyInternetcafe'. There are 268 PCs available at this Internet cafe, and I can't remember exactly, but I think that it is approximately GBP 1 for every half hour. I mainly remember that there were a lot of computers available to use and that it had good opening hours.

For other Internet Cafe's around London (or the UK) check out the website below.

Opening Hours:
Sun-Wed: 8:00am - 10:00pm
Thurs-Sat: 8:00am - 12am (midnight)

Address:
358 Oxford St, London, W1N 9AG

Directions:
It is opposite the Bond St underground.

VISIT THAT TIME HONORED...

by Michael_D

VISIT THAT TIME HONORED BRIDGE....LONDON BRIDGE? NOPE...but thats what most foreigners mistakenly call it. This is TOWER BRIDGE. London Bridge is west on the Thames.(ACTUALLY the REAL LONDON BRIDGE is far west indeed...reassembled on Lake Havasu in good ol US of A) There are so many 'must see's' in London it would take 200 pages to cover them all. I will try to cover many of the 'usual suspects' and cover more unusual stuff if possible.

British Versus American English

by gilabrand

When choosing a travel destination, people often prefer a country where they speak the language. The funny thing is, Americans and Brits only THINK they speak the same language. Consider this:

In Britain, "homely" is a compliment. In America it means "ugly." When the British say "upstairs" they mean the first floor. Americans mean the second. Tell a Brit to "wash up" and he'll head for the kitchen to do the dishes. An American will head for the bathroom to wash his hands and face.

The British expression "I'll knock you up in the morning" is rather shocking to an American. By the same token, Brits will shift uncomfortably if an American guest at the dinner table says "I can't eat another thing - I'm stuffed."

English people don't bathe their babies. They bath them. When Brits bathe, they mean going for a swim in the sea. Wading in shallow water is "having a paddle," even if their hands never touch the water.

A bum in Britain is a fanny in America, i.e, the thing we sit on, also known as a behind. A fanny in Britain is what the ladies have. In America, a bum is either a tramp or an obnoxious person.

A billion is the same. But a decillion in America is one plus thirty-three zeroes, while in Britain it is one plus sixty zeroes. For me, it wouldn't matter, since I don't have that kind of money, but for bankers I guess it would make a difference...

Here's a short list that may help you get your point across:

ENGLISH/AMERICAN
Lift/elevator
dustbin/garbage can or trash can
biscuit/cookie
courgette/zucchini
inverted commas/quotation marks
knackered/ worn out
subway/pedestrian underpass
underground or tube/subway
smalls/ladies' underwear
cotton (for sewing)/thread
trousers/pants
vest/undershirt
waistcoat/vest
hooter/nose
flat/apartment
holiday/vacation
aubergine/eggplant
hardware/house wares
lorry/truck
motorway/freeway
off license/liquor store
queue/line
parcel/package
tin/can
fringe/ bangs
chips/French fries

Those confusing postal districts

by KennetRose

Folks have been driven nuts by the postal district numbering in London. E4 is a long long way from E3! Not like Paris where the arondissements are numbered in a neat spiral!

In the beginning the inner areas of London were divided into WC (West Central), EC (East Central), NW, N, NE, E, SE, S, SW and W, without the numbers. You can still see this on older signs. Then came the numbers, and a more extensive area. NE and S disappeared, the original districts had a 1 appended except for W which was split into to 1 and 2, and thereafter they were numbered alphabetically by post office without reference to geographical common sense.

So, for example: W3 - Acton; W4 - Chiswick; W5 - Ealing; W6 - Hammersmith; W7 - Hanwell; W8 - Kensington; W9 - Maida Vale; W10 - North Kensington; W11 - Notting Hill; W12 - Shepherds Bush; W13 - West Ealing; W14 - West Kensington.
