Parking

by evs50

I am in London tomorrow (29th Aug, bit late i know) and I will be looking for somewhere to park for the day. I was hoping someone could reccomend somewhere central that isnt going to cost the same as the US national debt? Be much appreciated.

Have you looked at the NCP parking maps? Depends which direction you are coming from I suppose. Some are a lot cheaper than others.

Honestly, parking in Central London is a nightmare and hugely expensive. Also, you will run into the congestion Charge (basically a tax on travelling in Central London) which adds to the expense. My advice, depending on where you are coming from, is to park on the outskirts and get a train into the centre.

Hope this assists,

fergy.

You can park outside my house in Warwickshire and get the train to Euston and back for £15. I bet that would be cheaper.

where in london?

Re: Parking

by puerto_lover

fergy - as a Londoner you should know that the congestion charge is imposed during the week not weekends. And between 18.00 and 07.00 during the week etc etc.

Well I hope the original poster has found somewhere to park 'in London', after all it covers an area of several hundred square miles, but what with the Notting Hill Carnival, Chelsea at home etc etc and all the other Holiday weekend goings on it might be instructive to know where he or she ended up!

Nige, you are completely correct. I had totally forgotton what day the post was made and what day it referred to.

Travel Tips for London

Go to Buckingham Palace. It...

by antz

Go to Buckingham Palace. It is not a particularly interesting place, I am sure that people go just to say that they have been there. Not much happens, it is just a huge building that you can't get anywhere near due to either other tourist or the bloody guards!! However, if you can go when some sort of event is on, then it is slightly more interesting! Getting completely confused with the Tube Stations, trying to figure out where I am going, where I am, and where I have been...oh and always having to 'MIND THE GAP'!

Pub Signs

by filipdebont

Look Up, and discover the beautiful Pub Signs.
Like this one from the Fountains Abbey.

Of course, I am not telling you that you should stay outside to look at all the Pub signs, of course it is also great to go inside and taste a big Pint.

Snow in London - woohoo!

by Jenniflower

Snow is not as common as it used to be in London. Years ago it was alot colder with alot more snow, well that's what my grandparents and mum told me when growing up...

We have had 3 winters in London now and it has snowed each time I am glad to say! Coming from South Africa, where it mostly snows in mountains and out-of-the-way places, it's a treat when it does snow.

Wear layers of clothes, as it is very cold outside but hot in the tubes and indoors. London is magical anyway ~ when it snows it's like a fairytale.

Demonstrations about this, that and the other

by aaaarrgh

Of course, London is the seat of government and business in the UK. If there is something to march for, or against, then thousands of people will turn up in London, by foot, train, coach and more coaches.

Particularly on a weekend you may bump into a small, large or massive demonstration of tens, or hundreds of thousands of people.

Even the landed gentry have got in on the act, with recent demonstrations against a ban on fox-hunting. More normally the demonstrations are against war, poverty, human suffering, injustice... etc.etc.

Normally the demonstrations will march past Parliament and then head for Trafalgar Square, or Hyde Park. The Metropolitan Police like to keep big demonstrations moving until they are well out of the way, preferably a large park. In 1989 buildings were burnt, cars and shop windows were destroyed in a riot against an unfair 'poll-tax'.

Why not join in if you see a demonstration. Read the banners or placards, discover what the campaign is about, read the leaflets, shout encouragements or applaud. This is democracy folks!!

Tube Etiquette No. 8: Escalators

by Cham

On the escalators please keep to the right hand side, the left hand side is for people wanting to walk up or down them in a hurry. Standing on the right hand side could end up with people huffing and puffing behind you until you realise... at best asking you to move out of the way... or at worst they'll just push past you... it's a long way down.
