London-Portsmouth

by virtualpierroro

How can I go from London to Portsmouth (then I have to go from P. to Caen, France)? Easy? Fares, any idea? I will be travelling late in April.

Many thankS

Train will be best
http://www.nationalrail.co.uk/
You could get a coach but it will take a lot longer.

Re: London-Portsmouth

You can take a ferry from Portsmouth to Caen. The trip will be between 4.5 and 7 hours depending on which departure you choose and the fare less than 50 GBP for a foot passenger. Train from London to Portmouth would be easy and not too long a journey.

Re: London-Portsmouth

by rexvaughan

London to Portsmouth by train is about 2 hours and cost under 30 GBP.

Re: London-Portsmouth

by leics

Train is usually faster, long-distance bus cheapest. But train and bus times o this route aren't much different. Train times from around 1.5 hours, one-way fare from around 22.70GBP (may be some cheaper fares on certain departures).

Bus times, fares and booking here:

www.nationalexpress.com

Coaches take from 2 hours, oine-way fare from 7GBP.

Certainly you can go by GREYHOUND.
Comfortable buses and competitive fares - even £1 on some coaches !
I have a friend who travels on this Greyhound and he says its best way.

You cannot book a ticket more than a few weeks ahead but take a look at the details :
http://www.greyhounduk.com/

Of course you can go by rail from Waterloo Station if you want.

Re: London-Portsmouth

by leics

Greyhound is a pretty new bus service (with only a couple of routes) but is certainly cheaper than the National Express, although journey time is (obviously) more or less the same.

All accommodation is listed on the official tourist information sites:

www.visitlondon.com/accommodation (with search engine)

and

http://www.visitportsmouth.co.uk/site/where-to-stay

www.booking.com is a reliable site used by many Vt-ers (including me, even for the UK), with good mapping and honest guest reviews.

Re: London-Portsmouth

by puerto_lover

Interestingly that web site quoted above seems to list Greyhound and Rail journeys London-Portsmouth.
At least that is what I found after looking up a time for next week.
This was the web site; http://www.travelinesoutheast.org.uk

Staying in the Victoria area of London is quite a good idea if travelling down to Portsmouth because you have various budget end accommodations as well as being close to many well known sights like Buckingham Palace. And of course it is easy to take a Greyhound bus or a train from Victoria Station to Portsmouth.

So perhaps look at Victoria area to begin with ?

Travel Tips for London

Burlington Arcade.

by Maurizioago

It was built in 1819.

This gallery has several luxury shops.

The uniformed guards you see here don' t let people running, whistling, singing... Burlington Arcade is located in Clifford Street. The nearest tube to this gallery is "Picadilly Circus".

ROCK MUSEUM

As a good rock ...

by arkadia

ROCK MUSEUM

As a good rock music fan, we couldn’t not visit the Rock Wax Museum. History of the rock music with wax persons. You get headphones on and as you move around the museum the music changes and tells you the story of the person or group you are stanging in front.
GREAT! Of course Billy Idol, my Youth IDOL, was there too and YEAH; at least I have him in wax.

Hyde Park

by CandS

Hyde Park is a huge park not far from Buckingham Palace... We walked through it to get from Buckingham Palace to (the very run down) Kensington Palace near by. We also stopped off at the Princess Diana memorial which looks unfinished still although I was told it was finished. There were heaps of people in the park having a picnic, kicking a ball around or just relaxing... Very nice!

The fish and chips

by jorgec25

Well, I suppose that I had to try the fish and chips. I must say that I didn't enjoyed it that much (I love grilled fresh fish).

But I think that there are some significant differences depending where do you eat it.

I tried mine in a bar right next to the British Museum, so that wasn’t a good choice.

London is a multiethnic city...

by Beefy_SAFC

London is a multiethnic city with all nationalities represented, which is one of it's main cultural attractions. This makes it all the more colourful. That said, it is a big city and if you're not a city type (i.e. like me), something to be taken in small doses (i.e day trips or short breaks). Beefy at http://www.geocities.com/beefnetuk
