    Your Grandmother's Hotel

    by

    This is a wonderful throwback to a British home of an earlier era, complete with frumpy antiques, questionable paintings and a bit of wear and must. And it's totally charming. The Victoria & Albert museum is just a short walk away as is the South Kensington tube station.
    --------
    On a 2013 revisit The Gallery Hotel is as previously described. We got upgraded to a Deluxe room and then decided to stay here on our return from Charing, Kent instead of our previously reserved hotel. The service is excellent, including tea on demand in the salon.

    Directions: If you are driving the hotel is accessed from Cromwell Rd as Queensberry Place is one way that way.

best travel ticket to purchase?

by weelala

Hi i'm going to London for a weekend soon and am wondering what is the best option for rail travel, oyster card or just buy an off peak day pass? i'll be travelling mainly in tube zones 1 &2 arriving lunchtime Friday & leaving sunday afternoon. all helpfull tips gladly received!!

O crikey...this is a difficult (and frequently-asked) question.

There's a good explanation of the pros/cons here:

http://www.londontoolkit.com/briefing/travelcard_oyster.htm

Weekends are off-peak anyway ... but you are arriving Friday.

Much depends on how much travel you want to do (I prefer walking in London, to be honest) and how often. But as you are including Friday, I think an Oyster will probably be the best option.

In my opinion one day travel passes - I never buy Oyster cards only the travel passes. If you look at my London pages here on VT you will see a piece on them under Transportation. £5.60 for bus and tube or £3.50 for the buses only. This is for zones 1 and 2.
Try and use the buses more than the Underground - they are so easy to use , have on board announcements, good displays at bus stops but best of all sit upstairs and enjoy the view.

I think buses are great in London as you can see things easily and not stuck underground like Mr Mole. The central main bus routes are shown on this plan :

I had thought that you can buy a day bus ticket for £3.50 but as I use my Free Bus pass am not 100% certain about this because Travel For London keep plugging the Oyster Card or Travelcard. In fact I cannot see any information about buying just a one day bus ticket on the Travel For London web site but am sure it is still available.
Am I missing something.

I bought one just last November.

Re: best travel ticket to purchase?

by leics

That link leads to a site search engine which returns no results for London transport tickets.

What 'deal' did you find?

Re: best travel ticket to purchase?

by Britannia2

I bought a £3.50 bus day ticket at the main ticket office at Kings Cross one day last November. The next day from the same location I bought a £5.60 tube and bus day pass.

Shopping in London

by SLLiew

Fancy buying a Rolls Royce in London. Well, at least you can window shop at one.

Favorite shopping places for window shoppers for tourists include Harrods where the Queen also has shopped as well as Marks and Spencers.

What about the flea markets? The list goes on as far as the choices and variety of shopping in London. The city of shops.

London Tip

I've always found the 'Bobbys' in London very charming, and last time I was there, I stopped one of them and took a picture. Here it is! This is a man who actually looks good even carrying a helmet;)

George Washington and Seagull

by Mariajoy

On the front lawns outside the National Gallery stands a replica of the statue of George Washington (1732-1799) by Jean-Antoine Houdon, presented by the Commonwealth of Virginia to London in 1921.

In the photo he happens to have a seagull sitting on his head... well, what else are statues for??

London Open House Weekend

by tvor

Once a year, usually in September, over 500 buildings of historic and architectural importance open their doors to the general public. Free admission and sometimes even tours and talks by architects can be had. There is a printed or online pdf guide available for sale and the money goes to the Open House charity. This is a unique opportunity to see inside buildings that most people normally don't get a look at.
