stopover advice

by chatzkelpoppins

i have a ten hour stopover in heathrow from about 11 at nite till 9am. any suggestions towards what to do? is there anything nightlife-wise around the airport?

Re: stopover advice

by leics

Not aware of anything near the airport itself, although others may have suggestions.

You could go into London itself (connections are speedy) but do allow plenty of time to get back. If your flight departs at 9 you should be back by 7, to allow time for check-in/security etc.

Transport options from Heathrow detailed and linked here:

But if you actually land at 11, you may not be able to catch the train/Tube into the city; they do not run through the night. You probably will not be out of arrivals until around midnight.

Use the forum search box to find the Fort William forum and re-post there.

There is absolutely nothing nightlife wise around Heathrow. As I see it, you have a few options. As leics says, you could try to get into London. If you are too late for the Underground, the airport bus runs all night. This website is good for planning travel.

Assuming you get into London, it will be about 0100 or later when you do, and I am not sure really what you could do, except maybe a club (difficult if you have luggage) or an all night cafe or something. I don't really think it would be terribly advisable.

Alternatively, you could book into a hotel, there are plenty nearby, and try to get a bit of sleep. From personal experience, I know that everything shuts down in the airport at night, bars, restaurants, shops etc. so you will not have much to do except sit around, which could make for a long night.

Hope this assists.

I agree.

Unless your luggage is being checked through you will have to cart it around with you because the airport left luggage facility closes at 2300.

Wandering London streets in the early hours with luggage will be an absolute pain (Tubes will mostly have stopped), and you will have difficulty getting into clubs etc with it.

Better to find somewhere to stay near the airport, I think. You might consider the Yotel if you don't want to pay for a full night:

Travel Tips for London

.

by Yohaho

I really really love London. I enjoy every moment I spend there. Watching the hustle and bustle of the city get me excited. I am from a city with 7 million people. Hongkonger are named to be hardworking and efficient. However when I walk down the London tube, I feel their fast moving steps are telling me that 'hey miss, pick up your steps, or else you can't catch up with us'. To be able to survive in a competitive city like this, you cannot fall behind. Sometimes I think it is pretty tiring to live a life like this, yet it alo makes lives more challenging.

The streets of London

by Sjalen

With someone who had never been to London before, I would probably go on a sightseeing tour. There are several double decker tours starting between Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square and this way you get to see all the sights so you can make up your mind about what to see more of. Then there is a lot of walking to be done to see all of it properly, so make sure you've got good shoes! I miss walking up and down Charing Cross Road looking for bargain books in one of the many book shops. The food from all over the world and the many wonderful parks are other things I miss as well as the general feeling of being where it all happens.

St. Martin's in the fields

by daryll

Famous St. Martin's is just looking over the Trafalqar square. Most visited church since 800 years ago. What nice to see is the interior of the church lies many story during espeically the plaque victims during the 16th century.

Order at the bar

by donpaul77

I noticed that most pubs don't have table service, so if you're sitting at a table waiting for the damned waitress show up, well...

Just grab yourself a table, look at the menu, and walk up to the bar to order your food and pints (you pay at this time as well). Usually, the food is brought to your table.

If you're unsure if there is table service or not, just ask!

Pack Light

by twojazztravelers

My husband and I went over with just two carryons and it was brilliant - easy to navigate on the tubes and in the airports - no waiting for luggage or lost baggage. Ziplock bags work just as well as the more expensive space saver bags. We went in October and it was pretty nice - some chilly breezes. I would take a rain coat or an umbrella. Make sure you wear comfortable waterproof shoes - it helps!!! Ladies - pack a travel size toilet paper roll - the restrooms don't always have it ...i.e. MacDonald's in London. we did a lot of packing research and you might be able to find some good ideas on the graffitti board on the Rick Steve's website and this virtual tourist website.
