reasonably priced london accomodations

by justuhgirl about London visitors hotel

My SO and I used London30.com to find a place at a reasonable price. Through the website we found a place, the london visitors hotel, that was under 30 pounds a night. The room was spacious and clean and the service was outstanding. Anytime I had a question for the staff they were above and beyond in helping me. I am lo this hotel to all our friends.

Train to Gatwick Airport

by hawkhead

On the Gatwick Express website, one cannot book using a railcard and one is told to buy at the station. However, it is possible to do so on the First Connect website. Are the Gatwick Express and First Connect using the same train, or is First Connect the slower (slightly) line?

Re: Train to Gatwick Airport

First Connect is only the slower (slightly) stopping train, I think.

The Gatwick Express is a different train, operated by Southern. I know you can't use railcrds on it, nor on the Heathrow Express.

If you are leaving London using Victoria station you have the option of either Gatwick Express or Southern services. http://www.southernrailway.com/

If leaving from London bridge or St Pancras etc then First Capital Connect is the operator. http://www.firstcapitalconnect.co.uk

Re: Train to Gatwick Airport

Gosh, do you mean to say that if I come in at Kings Cross, I can wheel myself over the road to St Pancras and catch a train for Gatwick, without having to struggle to Victoria? As you will gather, while not quite a Gatwick virgin, as it were, my one and only trip through Gatwick was way back in the dark ages! Thank you both.

Look at First Capital Connect for more information about the work going on to improve the interchange at Kings X and St Pancras - I know that trains run during the week but if travelling after a certain time in the evening and at weekends then the cross London route is not available. It would be the best way of travelling to Gatwick during the week day from Kings X.

Re: Train to Gatwick Airport

by hawkhead

Well, you've certainly opened my eyes, thank you! These days, travelling around London on the weekends is not the easiest, so week day travel is the way to go.

Not sure about ticketing but if you could buy a Newark to Gatwick ticket via the Midland mainline you could go Newark - Nottingham/ Nottingham - Bedford / Bedford - Gatwick.

Re: Train to Gatwick Airport

by hawkhead

Thank you. However, there are too many imponderables, too many things to go wrong in terms of connections, and too many connections, takes too much time. Doing it both ways just isn't to be contemplated! Much prefer Newark-KX, then St P - Gatwick.

Re: Train to Gatwick Airport

by Britannia2

Yes on reflection that is the better option.

Re: Train to Gatwick Airport

by cubsur

Having been at Gatwick yesterday I can confirm that the St Pancras - Gatwick route is not available at weekends, nor between 1030om and 4am during the week. You are sent to London Bridge via the Underground's Northern Line (or by bus at night) then back on the FCC train to Gatwick.

This will apply for another 18 months at least while the line is modernised and upgraded for longer and more frequent trains.

tells you all

Re: Train to Gatwick Airport

by cubsur

PS you should be able to book through from Newark to Gatwick as the cross London bit is considered as part of the Underground even though it is not. No harm in asking and would save blundering about for a second ticket.

Re: Train to Gatwick Airport

by hawkhead

Many thanks Cubsur! Not going to be doing the connection after 10.00pm or before 4am or on weekends, so that's okay. The cheapest way to do Newark-Gatwick is to buy a series of single tickets (Newark-KX, then St P-Gatwick, then return singles). I always buy in advance online, as again, it is the most economical and this way, I avoid having to "blunder around"!

Travel Tips for London

More Tower Bridge!

by herzog63

This is the shot from London Bridge that I had mistaken the Bridge's name! I still laugh to this day about mixing up the 2 bridges! Happily I've heard that I'm not the only tourist to have done this!

Trafalgar Square

by dvideira

Trafalgar Square is the largest square in London and has been a central meeting place since the Middle Ages. At that time the site was called Charing. Later it became known as Charing Cross, after a memorial cross on the square. The nearby underground station - or tube station - is still named Charing Cross.

In the center of the square is the tall Nelson's Column which was built to commemorate the victory of Admiral Horatio Lord Nelson over the French fleet at the Battle of Trafalgar on the 21st of October 1805.

The Corinthian column was built in 1842 and is approximately 170ft or 52m high (including base). On top of the column is an 18ft high statue of Lord Nelson On the north side is the neo-classical National Gallery, built between 1834 and 1838. It houses a collection of more than 2300 paintings, including works from van Gogh, Renoir, Leonardo da Vinci and Claude Monet.

Tower of London & Tower...

by Sharrie

Tower of London & Tower Bridge: The Tower was once a prison for enemies of the crown. Now, the Crown Jewels are on view to the public in the Jewel House within the Tower of London. Check out the Scepter with the Cross which is the ensign of power & justice given to the Sovereign. It was set in 1910 with the biggest cut diamond in the world! The Star of Africa at 530 carats!!! Yep, you read that right, 530 carats!!!

Mayonnaise!

by sue_stone

What is it with the British and mayonnaise!!??

95% of sandwiches that you buy in the UK are pre-made/pre-packaged. And of these, 99% have mayonnaise on them....eeeeeuuuuwwwwwwwwww!!! There ought to be a law against it....not only does it not taste great, it is fattening!! And with so many British overweight, surely cutting back on spreads would be a good start...

There are chains over London that sell these pre-made sambos - some better than others. One of the better of these such chains is Pret a Manger. These are scattered all over London, and serve sandwiches, sushi, soup, coffee & cakes. They do have a couple of choices of sandwiches without mayo - just make sure you read the ingredients list before buying. Save the calories from the mayonnaise and have one of their pecan slices instead!!
