discounts+ many questions..thanks

by nech56

As it is almost July, am wondering if anyone knows of additional deals or discounts available from July 13th to 23rd for tourist sites? Have seen the national rail ones. (anything else?)
Someone said if you buy a 7 day paper ticket for metro
at a railway station this is good enough. Is this true? What if we
buy it at Heathrow? Can we use this 7 day ticket (we'll need a 4 zone) as we are with friends in Chigwell, from the airport? Also is it good on buses and trams?
Lastly is thereanything near Chigwell worth doing? Our friends are new to the area.

I have seen on this forum that the 7-day travelcards, when purchased at a railway station (not a Tube station/elsewhere) will work for the rail tickets two-for-one offer vouchers from the site linked below. I have no personal experience of this.

The travelcards are valid for buses, trams (few of those) , Docklands Light Railway and Tube.

If you have a car, you could take a ride east to Maldon. It's a nice town on a pretty stretch of water. There's a water park if you have kids along, and there are some pubs for a nice place to stop and rest. It's also not that far from a very large shopping mall called Bluewater.

For discounts on all sorts of things, check http://www.vouchercodes.co.uk/.

You can print off codes or vouchers for many restaurants which will then give you 2for1 offers for main meals or free drinks, etc, etc. Sometimes you will get good discounts for stores or theme parks, etc but you'll have to check what's available.

I've used the restaurant codes many times so can confirm this works.

I have used the 7 day PAPER travelcards and have been able to use them for the 2 for 1 discounts on the website that Leics gave you. You must print out the voucher and present that to wherever you are trying to go, you should also be able to get a leaflet with additional blank vouchers at rail stations but I wouldn't count on it. It's a good idea to have a few blank ones if you do, we did have to use them once. I've never been asked to see my rail ticket/paper travelcard but that doesn't mean that they can't ask you to show it. It should be good for travel on the day you use it.

If you buy a 7 day travelcard at Heathrow, they will put it onto an Oyster card which is not valid for the discounts per the Daysout Guide

http://www.daysoutguide.co.uk/faq.aspx

You must buy the 7 day PAPER travelcard at a National Rail Station (ie Paddington or Victoria), you must go to the Rail Station part of the station, not the tube station.

Re: discounts+ many questions..thanks

by Dabs

Oh and you can buy the travelcards in advance if you want to buy a day travelcard for your 1st day, I bought mine at Paddington the day before we were going to use them but make sure you specify that it will start the next day.

Travel Tips for London

there are so many neat things...

by soxdcat

there are so many neat things to do while in London, i dont know where to start. Tower Bridge is a wonderful spot for sightseers and pictures, but so is Buckingham Palace, and Big Ben, and St.Paul's Cathedral, and even the Hard Rock Cafe!! The double decker busses are famous world wide,so my husband wanted me to take a photo of one. He failed to mentionthe words 'double decker' and only said, 'Take a picture ofone of those famous red busses', so i took a pic of a red tour bus instead of a double decker bus! OOPS! ( later during the tour i got a double decker bus snapshot, though).

Look out for the old & the new

by scottishvisitor

Walking around London looking at the great icons like the Tower of London & Tower Bridge, keep your eyes peeled for the unusual. In the picture you will see Cannon Street Station, a very ordinary place at it's street entrance, but stunning with its old Victorian Towers viewed from London Bridge. Strolling around less well known tourist routes, meandering along narrow streets spotting unfamiliar street signs with interesting names & being rewarded with interesting & historic things to see & do that are not particularly in the guide books. So best foot forward go explore you won't get lost but may find yourself lost in time.

Viking jewellry in the British...

by WorldXplorer

Viking jewellry in the British Museum. I went to Richmond Park too and saw the deer - lovely! They say don't get too close to the deer, apparently it's not safe to, and, take my advice here, after getting off the tube at Richmond if taking public transport, when you arrive in Richmond find out where the bus leaves from for the park. I didn't find out till later there was a bus and I had a LONNNNG walk to the park. The photos on the side are of 'Cleopatra's Needle' it's BC (will find out exact date and let you know, check out the hyroglyphics on it! it was given to London by Egypt. Also here is a statue of Abraham Lincoln which was in London - he's one of my heroes!

Stand to the right on escalators

by Lutece

For the love of Londoners, please stand on the right of the escalators in the Tube. The purpose is to let those in a hurry (mostly people who are on their way to or from work) walk along the left side instead of having to wait for the escalator reach the top. It really boils my blood to see inconsiderate people block the escalator when there are signs all over the place to stand on the right. Actually it bugs me to see people block any passage, be it the underground entrance, sidewalks, doorways, etc. A little courtesy, common sense and politeness will make any stay in any city more enjoyable.

Tube etiquette

by KennetRose

Always remember to stand on the right on the escalators. The left side is for those who want to walk up or down the escalator (most Londoners do) and they will not appreciate those who block their passage.

Don't stop suddenly at the top or bottom of an escalator, or anywhere else for that matter. If you need to stop to consult a map or for any other reason, step to one side first.

Inside the carriage at busy times, move away from the doors if you can. That lets more people cram in like sardines in a tin!
