onward travel from heathrow airport

by monster8888

hi! i'll be arriving in london heathrow airport on 21 sept morning. can anyone suggest how best i can get to my place of accommodation in central london? i would like to travel by private car/taxi because i have a lot of luggage (3 passengers + 7 luggages). is it more advisable to book for private hire online, or to approach the desks at the airport terminal? thx for all your help! :)

You have a number of travel options from the airport but as you want to go by taxi you must expect to pay 40-70 GBP, depending on where you want to go in London.

You will find taxis waiting outside Arrivals (the black London cabs). If you want a private hire car then it is best to book online in advance: it will save time (you may have to queue for Arrivals taxis, depending on how busy the airport is) although it may not be any cheaper.

The official airport website

www.heathrowairport.com

gives information about taxis. Click the 'to and from the airport' tab, then 'taxis' in the left-hand menu.

Just one extra thing make sure you let them know number of passengers and how much luggage you have. You would most likely need a maxi taxi.

I was looking at transport options from a cruise ship a while back and I noticed they stipulated luggage must fit in boot (other than small bags of course) . And even a London taxi(no boot but room inside) might have trouble fitting all 3 of you in plus 7 pieces of luggage depending on size.

Sometimes the hotel concierge has transport options for you to consider. Marg

may be useful for you to consider the pros and cons of taxi/private hire.

London 'hackney carriage' black taxis carry up to 5 adults. They do have boots (by law they must still carry hay for the horses in there!) but hold only perhaps 3 suitcases.

For goodness sakes, just book on-line. It will be much cheaper than a black taxi. If me, I would book with Justairports. They will meet you as you come out of the arrival hall and help with luggage. Curious, do you really need so much baggage? Sounds like you are going for several months. If just a 2 or 3 week stay may I suggest just one carry on each.

Travel Tips for London

What I like the most when in...

by AnneKLM

What I like the most when in London is to just grab a map, get out and explore! There's so much to see, so it's very easy to try for too much and just feel stressed out. Pick a few places you would like to see, and just 'go with the flow'. You probably won't have time to see everything on your list, but may very well end up with a few new experiences you didn't expect, and with some serious blisters on your feet! The interesting architecture, that keep your eyes awake all the time. The people, and the pulse of the city.

OPEN TOP BUS TOURS

by hevbell

In my opinion the best way to see London (particularly if you have never been before) is to take one of the open top bus tours available. There are a couple of different companies running these tours but the one I would recommend is the Big London Bus.
They have two routes - red and blue and you can change between the two at a few different points on the journey. The buses are hop on-hop off meaning that you can alight at any of the scheduled stops along the routes, visit whatever sight you want then get back on the bus again.
The Big London Bus is unique in that it has a live guide providing commentary (and often a few laughs!) rather than a recording. They also have language buses.
Included in the ticket price (£15) is a river cruise plus three available walking tours
Directions: The pick up points are dotted all over the city but the office is on Buckingham Palace Road very near Victoria Station.

The Aussie connection

by iandsmith

There I was, looking for Buckingham Palace, when I came upon a rear entrance. Just where you'd expect those from the colonies to arrive. Can't have that muck through the front gate.
It even has, clearly cut into the stone wreath on the right hand gate post, the name "Australia". I felt humble and proud all at the same time. This picture also frames the splendid, gold-capped, Victoria Monument with classic fountain beneath.

LONDON CULTURE

by venteeocho

London Culture - Such famous names are Chaucer, Shakespeare, Dickens and Morrissey are just a few of the wonderful contributions the area of London has given the world. London is home to many a museum that you will relish the famous works inside their walls. The main museums include the Science Museum, the Natural History Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Imperial War Museum, The Museum of London and the National Maritime Museum. These make up just a few of the over 200 museums in the London area. See as many as time allows you to, they are all wonderful.

London also has five professional Symphony Orchestras which is plenty considering some areas have none or few. They are the London Symphony Orchestra , The London Philharmonic Orchestra, The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, The Philharmonia and the BBC Symphony Orchestra. London also has the Royal Opera and the Royal Ballet housed in the Royal Opera House at Covent Garden, to name a few of the halls that performances are held in. There are plenty of art exhibits.

The National Art Gallery and many other arts facility hold enormous amounts of fabulous works. There are modern dance productions that are exceptional and are performed in the Sadler’s Wells Thatre and the Barbican Centre.

The Nightlife in London is fantastic. There is so much to do. Try some of these places to listen to music. The UCL Bloomsbury, Mean Fiddler, Shepherds Bush Empire, London Astoria and Wembley Arena. Plus there are plenty of pubs and clubs that you can go to and drink and dance away the night.

There is so much Culture in London for you to enjoy. Please take advantage of all it has to offer. You will be as pleased as everyone else is after you experience the London way of life.

Cross-dressing at Christmas

by Mariajoy

The traditional British Panto - a festive feast of cross-dressing dames, thigh-slapping lady-boys, booing and hissing and a lot of "Its BEHIND you!!!!!" audience participation. Imagine the ex-boxer Frank Bruno as Widow Twankey and little Lulu as Peter Pan - you know the kind of thing!! If you are in London during the Panto season - book a ticket to go and see one and have fun!!!

The Old Vic is currently doing Aladdin, but there will be a performance somewhere near you!! Check your local theatre, it could be Cinderella, Peter Pan, or Jack and the Beanstalk. Whatever the show, you will experience a typically British phenomena with kids and adults thoroughly enjoying the performance on different levels! The inevitable smutty jokes from some old comedian wearing bright red lipstick, a fantastical wig and hideous frock with balloons for boobs go right over the kids heads and have the adults rolling in the aisles. Don't miss it!

Check the website for the history of British Panto.
