Londres : Heathrow-Baker St. Station

by virtualpierroro

I will arrive at Heathrow (terminal 3) and I want to go to Baker Street Station.
Besides taking a taxi, what’s the best way to get there?

Re: Londres : Heathrow-Baker St. Station

by TheWanderingCamel

Catch the train direct from Heathrow to Paddington and then the underground to Baker Street - 2 stops on either the Bakerloo or Metropolitan and Circle Line. Paddington Underground station has entrances from the main station concourse.


You have 2 options for the train from Heathrow - The Heathrow Express is non-stopping and fast but is also quite expensive. The Heathrow Connect makes stops along the way so is a a bit slower but a lot cheaper.
Check the website here for details of fares, times, etc

There are a number of transport options from Heathrow into London, at various prices and taking varying amounts of time. you will find them all detailed and linked here:

http://www.londontoolkit.com/travel/heathrow.htm

Taxi is by far the most expensive option.

Travelling by Tube is the cheapest, but takes longer than using the trains.

Once you arrive at Paddington (if you use the trains) or Victoria (if you use the buses) you can use the Tube to get to Baker Street.

The best option will probably be to use London Underground....take "Piccadilly Line" to Oxford Circus station and change for "Bakerloo Line" which goes to Baker street station. Or there are other options of traveling by underground but you would have to change more times. More info here www.tfl.gov.uk/

Re: Londres : Heathrow-Baker St. Station

The last suggestion is certainly the least expensive by a big margin but slower than the Heathrow Express/Heathrow Connect options.

Don't forget that cash fare on the Underground from Heathrow to Baker Street is £4.50 and the two stops from Paddington to Baker Street will cost you £4.00.

A lot less expensive with a pre-paid 'Oystercard' pass.

Travel Tips for London

DO NOT VISIT LEICESTER SQUARE

by jcunningham

This is the armpit of London. Frequented by entry-level tourists only - things NOT to do in Leicester square:

1. do not buy a pizza slice from a small stand at the side of the street as it's been there for 3 days (and probably stored in the attendents underpants over night)
2. Do not buy a hot dog from a man pushing a silver toilet cubicle around with a hatch to serve "meat based" products. It is quite literally dog meat, and that's in the best-case scenario.
3. do not buy any of the usual London memorabilia like a beefeater figurine or a red telephone box. This is cheap rubbish. Spend the money on a tube ticket to St. Pauls cathedral, walk to and over the millenium bridge and go to the Tate Modern gallery instead - admission is free - this will make you remember London.
4. Do not eat in an Angus or Aberdeen Steakhouse - these places have almost legendary status - as being frequeted by non-Londoners only. Food is so poor it's laughable, you have to pay a table cover charge and remember it's in Leicester Square. If you want the best steak in town, go to Gaucho Grill - Argentinian steak house. 19 Swallow Street, W1. 0207734 4040
5. Do not try "bobbing for meat" in the Mr.Wu's all you can eat (in my experience, as much onion as you can eat) chinese buffet restaurants in and around Leicester square. Instead go to a Wagamama for solid, cheap and taste modern japanese food. Irving Street, WC2H. Most mains around 5-6 quid.
6. The list is too long. Just don't go to this place. Get the TimeOut guide to London, and start exploring...Notting Hill, Brick Lane, Spitlefields, Old Street, Clerkenwell.... Leaving Leicester Square....it's a feeling I experience any time I'm unfortunate to be in this area....

Tower Bridge

by piersend

Get to see the Tower Bridge, it's probably the most famous sight in London, you can now go on tours in the Towers and upper walkways.
www.towerbridge.org.uk I don't think London would be the same without this sight :)

LONDON PARKS

by Helga67

Visit one of the many parks of London. On a beautiful, sunny day, it's very nice to walk from St. James's Park via Green Park to Hyde Park and end in Kensington Gardens.
The park on this photo is Regent's Park in northern London, also worthwhile seeing.

Squirrels

by kris-t

A grey squirrel, somewhat hopeful of being fed... In London Parks and Gardens Squirrels are not afreid people at all Squirrel hoards food in numerous small caches, for recovery later . It has been estimated that each squirrel makes several thousand caches each season. The squirrels have very accurate spatial memory for the locations of these caches, and use distant and nearby landmarks to retrieve them

okay - this may be a tiny...

by candsg

okay - this may be a tiny thing... but i am violently alergic to oregano. it took us several days to realize that it was pronounced or-e-GAN-o there! and the only reason we found that out was because there was this lady at a little pub down from our hotel. She heard us talking, and she got so excited. 'Wait... I know what she is saying! It's or-e-GAN-o', she says.
'how did you know that?', asks her co-worker?
'I saw it on Seinfield!', she says!
so, we have Seinfield to thank for that little bit of foriegn relations!
