Train connection in London

by bmajor98

I will be arriving at St. Pancras on the Eurostar at 2:34 P.M. on the 27 th. of August. Is there enough time to make the 3:07 train to Liverpool at Euston station?

Re: Train connection in London

St Pancras is about 10 minutes walk from Euston. So yes, if you are quick to get yourself off the Eurostar and out of the station and along the street and onto the right platform.

No time for a coffee, I'm afraid!

Check google maps to see exactly which way to turn when you leave Kings Cross/St P (left).

There are taxis outside the station, of course, but it will be no fatser than walking.

Re: Train connection in London

Make sure your ticket to Liverpool has "London International CIV" as origin. You should normally be able to buy this together with your Eurostar ticket. The advantage of the "London International CIV" origin or destination on your ticket is that such tickets aren valid on all trains, which can be convenient if your Eurostar is late.

Travel Tips for London

tate modern

by johntchow

visiting the tate modern and their special exhibit was a feature on surrealism. my favorite genre of art. the tate modern just opened up in 2000 and is housed within an old factory. the collection of modern art here is beyond comparison. its also nice because this was the only museum i had EVER been to that has little stools that you can carry from floor to floor, exhibit to exhibit, so that you can take your time and view the pieces. so even if you REALLY arent an art conneisseur, you can look like one. ;) i think i forgot to take a picture outside the tate modern... so youll have to settle for a picture that i took in the subway station on the way to the tate modern.

Tate gallery

by Srechko

Tate gallery of Modern Art is a must! It is a unique place that combines real art with silly attempts of art. Example of art: Cezanne and Picasso paintings. Example of silliness: One 'Artist' displayed wooden shelf stuck on the wall with a glass half full of water. Below this he explains on two pages how he does not really see shelf with glass on top, but an oak tree. That surely attracted lots of visitors attention. It is located on the south bank of the River Thames at Bankside, near Blackfriars Bridge, opposite St. Paul's cathedral.

See the Crown Jewels at the Tower of London. This picture is of the Waterloo Barracks where the Jewels are housed. Get to the Tower of London early because sometimes the lines can get long to see the more popular attractions.

TUBE ETIQUETTE

by jokubasmagnus

Many of the people who travel on the tube are typically highly-strung, stressed-out Londoners. As a tourist, it is your duty to irritate these people as much as possible by walking really slowly and standing on the wrong side of the escalator and so on...However the wiser amongst you will obviously not want to be tutted and snapped at, so here are a few guidelines from a regular [and highly-strung] tube user.

1: Ticket machines: There are two types of machine in the underground: some with lots of buttons and newer ones with a touch screen. Make sure you know which ticket you want to buy before you get to the front of the queue [you have queued, haven't you?] Otherwise you will hold up everyone else. If you're not sure, queue up at the ticket booths instead.

2: Escalators: Please stand on the right! Otherwise I shall spit at you as I come striding up on the left.

3: Getting on and off: Always wait for people to get off the train before you get on. If you are getting off, you have the satisfaction of pushing anyone who does not respect this rule.

4: Giving up your seats: Of course there is no legal obligation to do this, and indeed many people don't...however even if you are not feeling in a generous mood, it is worth doing due to the personal satisfaction of having other people in the carriage gaze admiringly at you as if you have just given all your worldy possessions to charity. However it would be unwise to give up your seat with the words -"Here you go love, you look so worn out/old/fat, I think you need it!"

5: Talking: Don't have loud conversations on the tube unless you are sure that your language is sufficiently obscure that no one else will be able to understand. So all you Livonians are fine.

Remember also [as is always the case in London] to apologise for even the briefest of physical contact with anyone and walk really quickly everywhere and frown...that way no one will know you are a tourist. [Unless you are wearing a "Fanny Pack"...in which case shame on you!]

More Differences Across The Pond {Chapter 9}

by Elena_007

snog:a sensual kiss, otherwise known as a French kiss (making out). You certainly wouldn't snog your Grandmother, but many Brits fondly remember their first snog.

solicitor: UK- lawyer or attorney. US- door to door salesperson, or a telephone solicitor, (also known as a telemarketer on both sides of the pond).

Solitaire: a game played on a board with pegs, and the object is to end up with only one solitary peg left. The card game in UK is called Patience.

spanner: an adjustable monkey wrench tool.

spotted dick: a sponge cake like dessert(pudding) with raisins in it.

spud: potato.In England, baked potatoes are called jacket potatoes, and of course, fried potatoes are called chips.(or hash browns in both UK and US)

Everyone knows that Americans refer to their chips as french fries, but I wonder why? What did France have to do with it, if anything?

squash: A diluted fruit drink such as the popular black currant squash, similar to sugary versions like Snapple, which actually have very little fruit juice, maybe 10-20%, and are mostly sugar and water, also available in sugar-free versions as well.

stabilisers: training wheels for a tot's bicycle in the UK. (spelt stabilizer in the US, and could be anything that stabilizes, either substances or objects)

starter: an appetizer eaten at the beginning (start) of a meal, hence the name. Mention starter in America, and someone will think something is wrong with your vehicle's starter and therefore will not start without the services of a auto-mechanic.

steady on: an English expression meaning Whoa! Hold on! (Hold your horses!) etc.

stilettos: pumps/ high heels for women.

stone: (1)a unit measure of weight equal to 13.99 pounds (lbs.) Someone weighing 10 stone in the UK would weigh 140 lbs. in America.

stone: (2) It is also used to describe the pits in fruits such as peaches.

straight away: A very common English expression meaning immediately, right this minute, or now.

sultanas: golden raisins often used in making delicious English puddings and desserts.
