Welcome to Stanfords – The World’s Biggest and Best Map and Travel Bookshop.

For over 160 years, explorers, travellers and adventurers have looked to us as map specialists to get them where they need to go, and back again.

When Edward Stanford set up as a map seller in 1853, he couldn’t have dreamt of where the journey would lead. He started off on the Strand and then a map shop on Cockspur Street, but before long he had to expand, ultimately moving to Covent Garden and our home on Long Acre, where we’ve been since 1901.

Today, every floor of our Victorian home is packed with maps, travel guides and inspirational travel writing; with beautiful hand-made globes and detailed atlases, as well as essential travel accessories for every occasion.

We bring people closer to the writers who have been there through our schedule of book events and signings. We help visitors to London explore more of the greatest city in the world and when they need a rest there’s always our Cafe for a cup of tea and a cake.

We offer site-specific digital mapping on demand, which means we can create bespoke wall maps that bring cartographic beauty into any home, or provide custom mapping for the most exacting of hikers.

One thing that has remained throughout our history is our staff’s passion and knowledge – not only as book and map sellers, but for travel and helping people discover, experience and share the wonders of the world.

Cheap Flights to London

A global city and crucial core of Europe, London is the United Kingdom s largest city and the capital of England. It has stood for over two thousand years, dating back to the Roman Empire, and continues to contribute to the education, entertainment, fashion, finance, research, and commerce industries on a substantial scale.

London has one of the largest gross domestic products on the planet, is widely considered the world s cultural capital, and has the biggest passenger flight base of any competing airport system. It also attracts more international visitors than any other city on the planet; Babylon is a globally renowned tourist zone!

Flights to London

London has six international airports and a number of smaller, regional ones. Together, they represent the biggest flight system in terms of passenger traffic. A grand total in excess of 135 million people flew through its gateways in 2013. Heathrow, Gatwick, Stansted, Luton, London City, and Southend are the city s largest airports, the latter being the youngest of the group.

Heathrow accounts for half of The Swinging City s flight traffic, making it the busiest airport for international visitors. Direct flights to London from the United States are available through American Airlines, Delta, US Airways, United, British Airways, and Virgin Atlantic (among others). Nearly 40 non-U.S. carriers offer nonstop flights to the city, including Lufthansa, Air Canada, Emirates, Air France, and SAS.

For the love of London: What to Do in London

Newcomers to the city often visit Buckingham Palace shortly after their arrival. See where the Queen of England lives and get a firsthand look at the London s heritage. The London Eye, Marble Arch, St. Paul s Cathedral, Tower Bridge, Trafalgar Square, and Westminster Abbey are other notable landmarks. Live musical performances in London are incredible to say the least, as are its theatre shows in Covent Garden, Leicester Square, and Haymarket.

Helpful Tips for Tourists Visiting London

There are many ways to get around London, thanks to its extensive public transportation network. The tube/underground subway system is quick and efficient, as is the Docklands Light Railway, and Tramlink service near Wimbledon.

Invest in an Oyster Card, as it costs much less travel with one of these than with a paper day ticket. Given its compact layout, tourists can easily see much of the city attractions on foot as well. The pound sterling is Britain s official currency, and exchange banks are available close to each of the major airports. Skyscanner s online hotel price comparison tool makes it easy to find a reasonable rate on hotel accommodations for your stay.

Needing little introduction, London is one of the most visited cities across the world welcoming millions of people from all corners of the globe every year.

With a wealth of history that’s shaped the political and cultural landscape across the decades, visitors to The Big Smoke will be spoilt for choice with amazing things to do around every corner; from museums and historical landmarks to shopping extravaganzas of every sort, and wining and dining of all calibres wherever you look.

So start planning your trip today, and get a bus to London with megabus.com.

Culture Heritage

If you’re looking for a city brimming with cultural heritage, then you needn’t look any further than London. As one of the most culturally diverse cities around, it’s renowned for everything from theatre, music and art to more history than you could fit into a single day of exploring.

The streets themselves are filled with the architecture of the past, giving you a real feel of the hundreds of years of history that have swept through the city. Alongside this you’ll find architectural triumphs like the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben, which sit next to the famous River Thames.

Every year internationally renowned events take place at venues such as The Royal Albert Hall and the Royal Opera House, which has wowed thousands across the years with musical and theatrical performances. Take a walk along the Southbank, where you’ll find a world of events at London’s cultural hub known as the Southbank Centre. Experience regular literary, spoken word, comedy, and film events, such as BFI (British Film Institute) Southbank, which takes place annually, alongside musical concerts from world famous performers.

Take a trip to the West End, where countless plays and musicals take place every week, and there’s usually something new opening if you want to stray from the tried and trusted blockbusters. Or visit Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre for an open air show, which sees the new world collide with that of the old through the words of England’s most famous wordsmith.

London’s museums are world famous showcasing history than spans the ages at places like The Imperial War and London Transport museums, alongside the Natural History museum and the Victoria Albert Museum; which has seen exhibitions covering everyone from David Bowie to Alexander McQueen. For the art lovers out there, make sure you explore some of the world’s best collections at the Tate Modern and Tate Britain, which sit alongside the National Gallery and National Portrait Gallery.

So Many Free Things

Many of the museums you find throughout the city are free to enter. You’ll also find several events and exhibitions throughout the year at places such as the Barbican Centre and Somerset House; so check before booking your bus to London and see what fun things could await you.

Climbing the dome at St Paul’s Cathedral is something that’ll provide you with a great story to tell when you go home, whereas witnessing the changing of the guards is a wonderful spectacle to behold whilst you gaze upon the lavish Buckingham Palace. But if it happens to be a beautiful day, then don’t worry about finding a picturesque scene to bask in as places like Green Park and Richmond Park offer an escape from the hustle and bustle, as you sit with a picnic and marvel at the city’s wildlife.

A Diverse Array of Attractions

The London Eye is the perfect place to start. Situated on the Thames it’ll lift you high above the London skyline presenting spectacular panoramic views across the city. Or you could go below and hop on a river tour and explore the Thames with a three course meal and champagne as you watch London slowly pass you by.

There’s much more to do after departing your boat and exploring London by foot. Take a trip to Madame Tussauds, a long standing London institution where you’ll find amazing lifelike waxworks of some of the world’s biggest superstars; or witness some of the most majestic and interesting underwater wildlife at the London Aquarium – home to everything from sharks and crocodiles to turtles, seahorses and even penguins.

Venture to the world’s oldest scientific zoo and observe everything from gorillas and tigers to komodo dragons, giraffes and pygmy hippos at London Zoo.

A Shopping Paradise

London is known for being one of the world’s leading fashion capitals. You’ll also find vintage and retro stores selling everything you could imagine, as well as world famous superstores and markets.

Head to the shopping heart of London and wander down Oxford Street and Regent Street, which provide you with all the usual shopping destinations you find across the UK; only on a much larger and grander scale.

For more upmarket and exclusive shopping experiences take a trip to either Chelsea’s King’s Road or Marylebone High Street, or pay a visit to department superstores such as Liberty, Selfridges or the crème de la crème – Harrods.

For the more quirky shopper, look no further than the bohemian spoils of Soho and the vintage enclaves of Spitalfields and Brick Lane. You’ll find everything from retro wardrobe fillers to old records and pieces of unique, old time furniture to give your home a twist from the past.

Furthermore you can pay a trip to Portobello Road, which has been immortalised in an endless stream of modern day culture, and provides reams of stalls every Saturday, selling everything from antiques and food to vintage pieces and old records.

Food for Thought

Not to be outdone by the worlds of fashion and music, the food scene in London is world class with numerous Michelin stars found throughout. So whether you’re looking to splash out on gourmet plates, hit the middle road for palate pleasers or keep it cheap with hidden foodie gems; London has them all.

Spots like Franco Manca produce delicious oven baked pizza made with fresh ingredients, made at a steal compared to many restaurants, and can be found in several places throughout the city. Whereas the classic British dish of fish and chips can be found at the Golden Hind in Marylebone, which is cheap, delicious and allows you to bring your own bottle.

Dine on authentic Parisian delights at Brasserie Zedel, which can be found on Sherwood Street, near Piccadilly Circus; which is like bringing the other side of the channel to you. Whereas Meat Liquor, in Marylebone, is touted as selling some of the best burgers in the world, don’t believe us? Get there early as the queues speak for themselves.

Finally if you’re looking at treating yourself and going a little more up market whilst in the capital, there are plenty of places to try. The Ritz is a highly-regarded venue in Piccadilly that offers the most quintessential British experience with their high tea. Whereas the Kensington Roof Gardens are situated 100 feet above Kensington High street, offering up delicious foods and cocktails, within one and a half acres of beautifully themed gardens.

A Buzzing Nightlife

London is a hive of activity every night of the week.

If you’re visiting in the summer head over to Studio 338, where you can party away on the open air terrace, and enjoy the music of world famous DJs. If you’re looking for an eclectic mix then KOKO in Camden is a multi-layered venue offering everything from disco and Club NME to guilty pleasures, DJs and everything in between.

Or for something a little different head to the arches in Shoreditch and visit Cargo, where you’ll be treated to hip-hop, pop, electronic, rock and psychedelic jazz, alongside amazing DJs and a top notch street food canteen that’s not to be missed.

    Where to stay in London

    London Hotel Guide

    The capital of England and one of the world s most unique cities, London is a fitting destination choice for individuals that like to tailor their trips. London has, without a doubt, something for everyone making it a popular choice for international visitors from all walks of life.

    Break from convention by staying in one of London s many fantastic Independent Hotels. Throughout the sprawling metropolis you ll fine unique hotels of all descriptions, but ensure that you pick a hotel in the area you wish to explore. London is a thrilling city and it can be easy to get carried away. What seems close on a tube map could warrant a two hour tube ride.

    If you want an eccentric English hotel serving up tea and scones and other classics, you ll certainly find it here in London s boutique hotels, guesthouses, b bs and classic hotels.

    If you want all the designer trimmings without any of the English twee during your city break, try a cosmopolitan indie London hotel with a reputable bar, restaurant and spa facilities.

    Choose an Independent Hotel in one of London s cool neighborhoods and indulge in independent city shopping, eating and drinking to complete your indie city break.

    Gaming in London

    Some are fortunate enough to experience London in all its glory, while others want to push their luck. If you’re one who wants to dabble with Lady Luck, you have the good fortune at your side, because there are countless opportunities for gaming in London. From slot machines to table games, try out your poker face at Grosvenor Victoria Casino or the Casino at the Empire. Meanwhile, for those in search of a more European gamble, you’ll find various sports books, such as Ladbroke’s, Paddy Power, and Coral with betting lines on multiple activities from cricket to rugby.

    Playgrounds in London

    Between introducing your children to London’s history and attending theatre performances, allow your youngsters to let loose at one of the many playgrounds in London. Experience the royalty of all playgrounds with a visit to Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Playground, Hyde Park, where your kiddos can climb upon a life-size pirate ship and explore teepees for an adventure unlike any other. Meanwhile, Coram’s Fields, Holborn, features an impressive seven-acre kid-friendly fortress with everything from sports fields and playgrounds to even a café and a farm with goats.

    While a Euro trip can cost you a pretty penny, if you only have a few pennies to spare, there are savvy ways of traveling around Europe on a budget. Booking flights during the early morning or late at night during midweek is one major way to save some cash, while Megabus and Eurolines provide cheap ground transportation options. What’s more, cruises offer an affordable way of traveling from one port to the next, as room, board, and food are all conveniently included in the ticket price.

    Contrary to the bars of the United States, you’ll find countless kid-friendly pubs in London. These establishments provide the perfect place for an affordable meal, domestic brews, and the opportunity to sample the local cuisine. Skip the rowdy, crowded bar scene, and instead choose the quieter joints for an early dinner with the kiddos. Start your kid-approved pub crawl in Nicholson’s chain of pubs and venture out from there.

    Just because you’re gallivanting in London with the kids in tow, doesn’t mean you need to forgo the personality and luxury of a boutique hotel. In fact, there are various kid-welcoming London boutique hotels with amenities to accommodate the entire family. The Metropolitan London provides spacious connecting rooms and gifts for the children upon arrival, while The Zetter Hotel boasts big personality and suite options. As for The Amperstand Hotel, it pays close attention to the finer details while offering easy access to the Natural History Museum and Kensington Gardens for adventures with the youngsters.

    However captivating and alluring the London culture may be, it is perhaps sometimes first misunderstood by travelers. So before gallivanting in London, brush up on your street style and expect the local’s mocking sense of humor. Skip the culture shock, prep your taste buds for Sunday Roast, forgot about chilled brews, and embrace the dignified lifestyle to fully indulge in the London scene.

    Exploring Britain’s heritage at Stonehenge belongs at the top of everyone’s bucket list. Regarded as one of the Seven Wonders of the World, this massive and mystical rock formation presents a compelling history and purpose. Though many details surrounding the henge still remain a mystery, take the opportunity to explore the totems and learn what is known of their history on your next London trip.

    The heritage of Cambridge

    While Cambridge is commonly associated with the University of Cambridge, this city in the countryside offers far more than educated pupils and philosophy classes. In fact, upon visiting this city located on the river Cam, you’ll find the heritage of Cambridge masterfully combines modern art, fashion, and gastronomy. Cambridge manages to bridge the gap between ancient times and modern day while presenting a charming attraction just outside of London.

    More than lakes

    Great Britain’s Lake District surprisingly offers more than lakes. as it is also home to five of the tallest mountains in England, multiple nature reserves, and countless quaint and cozy towns filled with literary charm. Grasmere, for example, presents Dove Cottage, the former home of Williams Wordsmith, and the famous Sarah Nelson’s gingerbread. Meanwhile Ambleside features the home where author Beatrix Potter gathered inspiration for her beloved stories, such as “The Tale of Peter Rabbit.”

    Samuel Johnson once said that to be tired of London is to be tired of life. We think that the concept holds true for hotels in London; after all, in this marvelous capital of England, the best places to stay are microcosms of the city itself. Chic guest houses populate the most stylish neighborhoods, glamorous resorts channel the regional elegance, and family-friendly inns offer a peek at the country’s famous hospitality. When you book rooms at a London hotel, you’re not merely ticking an item off of your traveling to-do list; you’re creating a basis for the most unforgettable London vacations .

    Of course, every traveler is different. While you may want to make reservations at the most luxurious hotel London has to offer, your best friend might prefer to score a few deals and discount rates on a quieter, more unassuming spot. That’s no problem; thanks to the city’s wealth of options — and seriously incredible on-site amenities — you’ll always find something that feels tailored to your personal style. Try one of the highly rated resorts in London for an array of just-for-you perks, or head to a boutique inn for a more hushed sort of charm. Planning to divide your time between relaxing in the room and hitting all the sights? Check out the bevy of centrally located London hotels. Not only will you have access to a carefully curated selection of perks, but you’ll also be in the top location for exploring the seemingly endless list of things to do in London .

    Plus, the inexpensive hotels London offers give you a little more wiggle room in your traveling budget, so you can pile on extras like rental cars and flights to London without paying extra-high prices. You can even hit the high seas with a few cruises from London after you check out of your resort. Talk about a dream vacation.

    The cheapest way from London to Paris #israel #travel

    #travel to paris
    #

    Which is the cheapest way to get from London to Paris – car, Eurostar, coach or plane?

    Comments

    There are many different ways to get to Paris. Today, we did a spot check comparison on as many of them as possible, including rail fares, plane tickets, car – including options by ferry or by Eurotunnel – and by coach.

    We should sound a note of caution in that some tickets are for travelling on a Friday (see methodology below), often the most expensive day to travel, which will distort the results somewhat. But they give a sound indication of how budget-conscious travellers should plan their journey to the French capital, whether travelling in the short-term or several months down the line.

    Methodology

    Prices checked are for a single adult, with no discount cards

    Prices were checked on the morning of Friday September 4, for full adult fare, both single and return journey (four days after outbound trip). Airfares are hand-luggage only.

    We have not included the cost of airport transfers for Easyjet and Ryanair. But a return train ticket from Charles de Gaulle to Gare du Nord will cost about 20, and from central London to London Gatwick is at least £10, and likely to cost more, unless booked in advance.

    What we have learned (or confirmed)

    On the launch of its international routes three years ago, Megabus (megabus.com ) carved a reputation for value with its headline £1 fares. However, when we carried out this same research last year, we found that the cheapest coach to Paris was run by iDBUS (now rebranded as OUIBUS; ouibus.com ). But wait, there’s more: for 2015, Megabus has reclaimed its throne, again providing the cheapest route on wheels to the French capital.

    Both budget coach companies trump the National Express arm, Eurolines (eurolines.co.uk )

    It’s also worth noting that travel company’s websites have become pretty good at pointing you in the direction of the cheapest fare, so it’s no longer necessary to be suspicious they’re hiding the best value.

    For Eurostar (eurostar.com ), Friday is an expensive time to travel: the cheapest fare available was often £30 more expensive than the same for the previous or following day (a Thursday or Saturday). This is particularly true when booking in advance.

    The same goes for Eurotunnel (eurotunnel.com ), only to a lesser extent, with only a couple of pounds variation between the cheapest ticket available for next Thursday (£76) and Friday (£78). As per usual, the most anti-social travel times wins you the best deals.

    P O Ferries (poferries.com ) is marginally more expensive than Eurotunnel in our study.

    The cliffs of Normandy await ferry passengers Photo: Fotolia/AP

    Eurostar booked well in advance is still very competitive – only £33.50 more than the cheapest return by coach. Plus, the coach services we surveyed had an erratic approach to advance bookings, with no clear timeline available, where Eurostar allows bookings 180 days in advance.

    Obtaining one of the limited number of cheap seats on the Eurostar plays a large part in determining the size of your final bill (fail to book a discount seat on Eurostar and the prices rise steeply).

    However, it costs similar to easyJet and becomes a much better deal once you take into account transfers to the airport.

    For drivers, Viamichelin is a terrific website. As well as the route, it calculates your likely fuel costs, and tells you how much to expect to pay for tolls. Impressive.

    Travel times vary for coaches surprisingly widely (up to two hours), and consider just how much you fancy eight hours in a coach before being lured by the prices.

    Group travel can be an advantage. OUIBUS, for example, offers discounts for groups of more than 10. And as for travelling by car, if several (paying) people are in the same vehicle, it is almost without question the best deal of all no matter when you travel (without taking into account any additional fees for travel insurance/ roadside assistance).

    Note too that the Man in Seat Sixty-One has an interesting option if you wish to travel by train, ferry, then train again. Surprisingly it s not the shorter route via Calais that is cheapest, but a longer way, via Newhaven to Dieppe. Read full details of his suggested train-ferry-train combination here

    Top 10 Cheap London Hotels

    By Laura Porter. London Travel Expert

    Laura Porter has lived in the London area all her life and can’t imagine ever wanting to live elsewhere. London is her ‘specialist subject’ and she has written the About.com London Travel site since it started in 2006.

    This site was included in the “Top 50 Travel Websites ” in The Independent where Laura was described as a “mastermind” as “she has a knack for seeking out the unusual as well as providing plenty of practical tips”.

    The About.com London Travel site will help you plan a trip or enjoy armchair travel. It includes luxury and budget, the top attractions and the little known quirks that made the city so special.

    London hotel prices stop many travelers from coming to this great city so I ve put together this list of London hotels that offer exceptional value for money. Back in 2007, the average London hotel room rose to £119 per night but I want to be able to prove you can still stay in the world s most cosmopolitan city for less than that, so all of these hotels are under £100 a night and some are well below that rate. Also see: Best Youth Hostels in London .

    If you don t have a specific hotel in mind, I find the best London hotel rates are usually with Travelocity (Buy Direct ) or Superbreak.com (Buy Direct ). I can also strongly recommend the Hotwire Secret Hot Rate as a way to get a real bargain.

    What to Wear in London on your trip to the United

    #travel to london

    What to Wear in London and other parts of England

    British fashion is partly defined by the country’s infamous weather. It is unpredictable and changeable and when the weather man on the television tells you that it will be sunny all week, be prepared for rain. What to wear in London has everything to do with the weather.

    No matter the time of year, always keep a travel-size umbrell a in your purse.

    In Britain it’s easy for the traveler to stick out like a sore thumb – walking boots, convertible zip leg trousers . SLR camera, guidebook and a backpack in the middle of London can easily scream “tourist.” Sadly in some parts this can make you a bit of a target but it’s also easy to blend in with the locals. British fashion isn’t quite as chic as the French . isn’t always as slouchy as American or as zany as Australian. But then again, I’ve seen people dressed as pirates on the tube and no-one bats an eyelid.

    Like anywhere, pack for the environment – are you spending your time café crawling in the cities or getting lost in Scottish wilderness?

    Also remember that Britain is one of those places where if you forget anything, you’ll be able to pick it up when you get there (and it won’t cost you an arm and a leg.)

     What to Wear in London and the UK in Winter

    December, January February

    For city exploring don t be afraid to break the don’t take your jeans traveling rule . They aren’t appropriate for hiking but I can’t think of anything more ideal to wear walking round London on a frosty winter morning.

    Winter is cold and 2013 has been predicted to be the coldest winter for 100 years (global warming etc.) The key is to wrap up warm – wear lots of layers, (especially if you don’t fancy bringing a heavy winter coat along) and drink plenty of tea.

    When planning what to wear in London pack tights, leggings and knee-high socks for extra warmth. Don’t forget the essential winter woollies either –hat, scarf and gloves.

    Wear leggings or tights under your jeans for extra warmth. These leggings are a popular choice with the TFG readers and are lined with fleece.

    Footwear – I find a comfy pair of waterproof ankle boots perfect. Soggy feet aren’t fun, neither are blisters. Be prepared for the wet as well as the cold.

    Ankle booties  are the perfect choice any time of year.

    What to Wear in London and the UK in Spring

    March, April May

    In spring it rains a lot. I usually carry a compact umbrella with me at all times in the UK, so that I’m always prepared for spontaneous showers – not just in spring.

    Spring is that transition period between winter and summer, so layers are still important when planning what to wear in London, but in the later months think about swapping that chunky coat for a regular jacket.

    Transform a temperate outfit on a chilly day with a scarf, hat and tights. Skirts are fun but remember that it can get quite breezy so you ll have to wear double layers underneath.

    If you’re in the countryside you’re bound to see waves of differing spring flowers and baby lambs, but remember to be prepared for the mud.

    It s not uncommon to see people wearing these Hunter rain boots on very rainy days.

    What to Pack for a Trip to London and the UK in Summer

    June, July August

    Summer can be warm but can also be very wet – be prepared for both. Check bbc.co.uk/weather/ before your trip to get the most accurate forecast. Don t be surprised if it s grey and gloomy in the summer!

    If the forecast calls for sun, be bright and bold as you plan what to pack for London! Crack out the summer dresses, sunglasses and hats. Once again, be aware of the breezes so you might want to consider layering – sometimes jersey skirts and dresses hold their shape better than wispy skater styles.

    A cardigan and a scarf are essentials layers to any summer outfit in case the sun decides to go in.

    You can never go wrong with a light leather jacket for cooler summer days and nights.

    A comfy pair of sandals are great for walking about town on warm days but ankle boots and ballet flats  are ideal the rest of the time.

    A note on bags:  Personally I am a big fan of satchels for cities and rucksacks for countryside. I often feel that a satchel with a zip can be safer than many daypacks, which can also be unnecessary for city exploring.

    Find out why cross-body purses  are the best travel shoulder bags for women.

    What to Wear in London and the UK in Autumn

    September, October November

    Autumn is my favorite season in general and also to dress for. I love the crunchy leaves, the mild weather and the earthy colors.

    As the transitional period between summer and winter, things start to get colder and milder in the autumn. When planning what to pack for London this time of year it’s time to think about a woolly hat and light waterproof jacket such as  this one .

    If you’re a skirt and dress person rather than a trouser person, then leggings and opaque tights are essential to make outfits a little warmer.

    Scarves are extremely useful and a warm knit option will help keep you warm during this transitional season. When it’s not quite cold enough for a coat, then a jumper or cardigan combined with a hat and a scarf will do. Remember, layering is key!

    5 Important Packing Tips

    • Dress for the weather, activity environment – make sure you’re comfortable .
    • Always carry an umbrella with you.
    • Scarves are extremely versatile – in the winter a chunky knit will keep you snug whilst in the summer a lighter scarf can help protect you from the sun.
    • If you’re not used to colder climates. still plan for “winter” weather YEAR ROUND. Layers are key!
    • If in doubt, bring an empty suitcase and head to the nearest Primark to stock up on cheap clothing that is both weather appropriate and locals approved!

    When you’re planning what to pack for a trip to London and the UK, follow these travel tips to keep you in line with the fussy weather. Thanks for this helpful post Lottie! Don’t forget to check out The Ambling Explorer .

    Cheap Flights to London, United Kingdom (LON) #cheap #tickets #airline

    #find the cheapest flights
    #

    Recent flights forums

    Cheap flights to London are available from Darwin International Airport and typically include a transfer in Singapore. Cheap flights exiting Adelaide and Perth on Emirates route through Dubai whilst other carriers may include a flight to either Singapore or Kuala Lumpur. Flights available from Sydney have carriers such as Air China stopping in Beijing, a Malaysia Airlines flight may route via Kuala Lumpur and Etihad transferring through Abu Dhabi. Departures from Brisbane generally route through Kuala Lumpur or Dubai, with cheap flights on Singapore Airlines transferring through Singapore. Ground transportation at Heathrow Airport is just as busy as London itself. A taxi rank is located outside each terminal but whilst convenient, this is a pricey option. The Heathrow Connect rail service travels to Paddington with tickets £9.50 stopping at all stations. The Heathrow Express is a bit more expensive but is the quickest and easiest way to get into the city.

    Getting Around London

    A little planning or patience will make navigating London simple. Purchase an Oyster card (similar to Melbourne’s Myki card) for the best price and easy transition between services. The London Underground, Docklands Light Rail (DLR) and Overground all use a zonally based fare system. For cheap travel, opt for the red buses which have a flat-fare of less than £2 as does the Tramlink system. London Black Cabs are somewhat expensive and largely unnecessary. Most attractions are within walking distance, are accessible on the extensive public transport network or en route with a guided tour. Barclays Cycle Hire is similar to Brisbane’s City Cycle scheme and is a great way to explore London at your own leisure.

    London is much more than the British Museum, Tate Modern and National History Museum. Watch the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace, ride the London Eye and then welcome greater London with open arms. See a human skeleton a little under eight foot tall at the Hunterian Museum, a jar of moles at Grant Museum of Zoology and the cringe-worthy tools at the Old Operating Theatre. Nostalgia is particularly romantic at the Charles Dickens Museum and Pollock’s Toy Museum – round this off with a quick photo at London’s first red telephone box at the Royal Academy entrance. Take a flying trapeze class at Hoxton’s Circus Space, a pottery workshop at Wheelhouse Pottery or an overhead walk through Kew Gardens on the Xstrata Treetop Walkway. The Lee Valley White Water Centre has white-water rafting on the 2012 Olympic course or laze by the huge pool that is Tooting Bec Lido for a cheap afternoon. Of course a trip to London wouldn’t be complete without a ride on an open-air bus tour. If this isn’t enough, join the Jack the Ripper tour for a tasteful, yet gruesome slice of London.

    London is an impressive retail palace with equally impressive price tags. Snare a treasure at the Camden Market or Portobello Road Market. Harrods and Harvey Nichols offer high end department store shopping while the Dover Street Market houses multiples levels of boutique style fashion. Visit Lazy Oaf or the amazing emerging talent concept of Wolf & Badger. Liberty is a mall-style shopping dynasty, but if the budget can’t stretch, Bicester Village and The Galleria Outlet Centre should satisfy retail needs. For fine dining, sample the tasting (degustation) menu at Seven Park Place. Gilgamesh offers a group set menu or delight the carnivore within at Hawksmoor Guildhall with their imaginative beef tasting menu. Enjoy roast pheasant at Powder Keg Diplomacy or the Cantonese cuisine of Plum Valley. For a cheap eat visit Lantana, Princi and the Princi Pizzeria for delicious wood-fired pizza. Sip on cocktails at Beaufort Bar or head to the gorgeous jazz sound of Nightjar. Find your way to trendy Experimental Cocktail Club, laid-back Efes Pool Club or the breathtaking backdrop of Club Aquarium. Slow it down at Passing Clouds, party hard at Egg Nightclub or alongside thousands of clubbers at world-famous Ministry of Sound.

    Cheap flights to London

    When a man is tired of London he is tired of life, Samuel Johnson famously observed, and the city offers a wealth of things to see and do. It is home to iconic historic attractions such as Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, the Tower of London and the Houses of Parliament. It also has world-class fine art and artefact collections at institutions like the British Museum, many of them free.

    These days London offers an eclectic mix of international cuisine, award-winning restaurants and traditional pubs such as Ye Old Cheshire Cheese which dates back to 1667. It also offers some of the best theatre around, a thriving and varied music and nightclub scene, and first-rate shopping.

    Attractions

    Buckingham Palace has been at the heart of the national life and millions of visitors flock every year to its gates to watch the ceremony of the Changing of the Guards. Similarly popular, Westminster Abbey is the place to visit to see where most of England’s kings and queens were crowned and buried, and the Tower of London, once a royal palace and later a prison, and a place of torture and execution.

    Madame Tussauds Waxworks also continues to exert a massive attraction for visitors with its combination of a Chamber of Horrors and life-sized figures of the great and good.

    Step back in time at Churchill’s War Rooms underneath Whitehall. Take the family to visit the London Zoo or Sea Life London Aquarium. Explore the tombs and monuments at St Paul’s Cathedral.

    Arts and Culture

    Whether you’re an art connoisseur or a casual observer, you won’t want to miss a visit to one of London’s many galleries and museums. See the British Museum with the Elgin Marbles, the National Gallery, Tate Britain and Tate Modern, one of London’s most popular attractions. All are free. Less well-known is the Cortauld Gallery which has gems by Degas, Gauguin and Monet.

    London’s theatreland is famed for the quality and diversity of its productions from blockbuster musicals to comedies and theatre classics. The South Bank, with its National Theatre, Festival Hall and Hayward Gallery, is a popular destination. And further along, for less than a tenner, you can stand with the groundlings and see Shakespeare as it may have been acted at the Globe Theatre.

    Eating and Drinking

    London offers eating and drinking to suit every taste and pocket. There’s no shortage of upmarket eateries for those with the money. However, there is also a wide range of cheaper options such as Gaby’s Deli on Charing Cross Road, patronised by a host of actors. Just up the road you can enjoy the best coffee in London at Caffe Vergnano 1882. For those in search of fine oriental cuisine your destination is Chinatown, while pub lovers are directed to the historic Lamb and Flag in Soho.

    Nightlife

    See a show in the West End. Hear some jazz at the legendary Ronnie Scott’s club. Go to a concert or recital on the South Bank. Or head for the dancefloor at Heaven or Ministry of Sound.

    Cavs – Tristan Thompson Bullies Celtics, Dominates Glass In Game 1


    #

    The Boston Celtics have struggled on the glass throughout the 2017 NBA playoffs. Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers was no different.

    The Cavs had their way with the C s on the boards, which helped the road team pick up a 117-104 victory Wednesday night at TD Garden.

    Cleveland s interior domination was due in large part to Tristan Thompson. The Cavaliers forward posted 20 points to go along with nine rebounds, six of which came on the offensive end.

    Thompson s success on the boards provided Cleveland with a helping of second-chance opportunities, which contributed to its offensive outburst in Game 1. And while Thompson is a tremendous rebounder, Cavs head coach Tyronn Lue believes the forward brings so much more to the table.

    Tristan was big, Lue said. He s our energy, he s our motor. Defensively he was great, but the six offensive rebounds he had were huge for us. And then finishing around the basket. His toughness and will are just big for us. His physicality is huge, especially against this team.

    Thompson s tenacity has been his calling card since his arrival in the NBA. At 6-foot-9, he s usually smaller than the players he s going up against in the paint. But what he lacks in size, he makes up for with exceptional effort and positioning.

    Celtics guard Avery Bradley understands how Thompson can affect a game and knows Boston must do a much better job of limiting him as the series progresses.

    In the playoffs, you re supposed to try to take away what guys do, Bradley said. That s what they re doing to us and that s what we need to do to him (Thompson). We need to put a body on him and team rebound. We have to do a better job at it.

    Boston did show flashes of the team rebounding Bradley referenced. Rookie Jaylen Brown impressed with nine boards. while Al Horford and Jae Crowder each contributed eight. The Cavaliers are a bigger team than the Celtics, but as seen in Thompson s case, effort and physicality goes a long way.

    If the Celtics can t remedy their rebounding woes in the coming games, the series won t go on for very long. The C s can ill afford to allow second-chance opportunities, especially against an offensive juggernaut like the Cavs.

    How to Find Cheap Flights to London #lastminute #travel

    #find a cheap flight
    #

    Things You’ll Need

    Book online, and be specific. While numerous online travel sites, such as Expedia, Hotwire and Travelocity, feature deals on flights to a number of locales (including London), CheapFlights.com features a section devoted exclusively to booking cheap/discounted flights to London. The site offers a list of airports from which people can fly, as well as numerous times, dates, flight types and prices. A function also exists by which travelers can book hotel and car, in addition to booking their flight.

    Hire a travel agent. This can be done in person, through local outlets like a newspaper or the Yellow Pages, as well as through online sites like Tripology. The latter site provides users with travel agents who offer a customizable trip itinerary, including flight packages to locales like London. For those with limited travel booking experience, particularly to an international location like London, travel agents offer a potentially best-case scenario in terms of securing a cheap/discounted flight to the United Kingdom.

    Book through British Airways. Booking directly through the most popular airline in the United Kingdom is of great benefit to travelers, as the airline features plenty of flights to London. By booking well in advance–when airlines are looking to sell as many tickets as possible in the hopes of selling out a flight, or at the last minute–when airlines are desperate to sell those last few remaining seats, gives discount ticket seekers the opportunity to score a great deal.

    Leak Detecting Services

    How to Find a Water Leak

    Our highly trained engineers at L.D.S. Leak Detection Specialists Ltd. will choose the approriate testing and inspection process specifically chosen to suit your home or commercial business to find the leak.

    Our engineers at L.D.S. carry all the latest technology in leakage detection. We have listed the main Leak detection methods and equipment below. Inspection cameras. Protimeter mms damp meter survey kits, pressure gauges both hydraulic and digital and salts diagnostic kits also form part of the L.D.S. engineers equipment.

    Leak Detection Methods to Find A Leak

    Acoustics
    Acoustic profiling uses ground and pipe sensitive microphones to enhance the sound of the leak. This method can help in pinpointing precise leak location.

    Correlation
    Is a way of finding and pinpointing leaks in water pipes. A leak in a pipe under pressure creates noise that travels through the pipe walls, the surrounding ground and along the contents of the pipe. Correlators are a very accurate sound testing device which are used to identify the acoustic frequency caused when a pipe is leaking. The correlator uses two identical sensors located along the pipe to calculate the leek location by logging the signal delay, sensor distance and the sound velocity.

    Tracer Gas
    The trace gas, a safe mixture of hydrogen and nitrogen, is introduced into the pipe with the suspected leak. The gas, is the lightest in the atmosphere and is made up of of small molecules. The gas will exit at the leak and make its way to the surface where it is detected using gas sensitive detection pobes.

    Thermal Imaging
    Thermography is the use of an infrared imaging and measurement camera to see and measure thermal energy emitted from an object. Thermography cameras can identify problem areas that can’t be seen with the naked eye, detecting hidden water leaks. The infrared inspection camera can detect not only hidden water leaks and their origin, but also moisture that cannot be physically reached with moisture meters. Read more

    Pipe, Cable and Metal Detection and Tracing
    Often the exact position of pipes and cables is unknown due to innacurate or non existant network plans. In order to carry out precise water leak detection and to avoid damage to utilities and operators during excavations, it is essential to know the precise position of all services. We use high performance equipment which can locate and trace buried pipes and cables.

    Network Monitoring with Noise Loggers
    Noise Loggers are used for early detection of leaks in water supply networks.The longer it takes to identify that a network is leaking the more revenue is lost and the greater the loss of precious water resources. In addition to the more conventional methods of leak detection the installation of permanent noise loggers has proved to be a cost effective tool in early identification of water loss. By permanently monitoring sections of the system, which have previously been proven leak free, it will alert you when a potential leak does develop. Read more .

    Cheap Hotels in London

    London is one of the most popular and exciting places to visit in the world but that doesn’t mean it’s unaffordable. There’s a great range of cheap and reasonable places for you to stay during your trip.

    City Tours

    A great way to start your trip to London is with a city tour – it’s a quick and easy way to take in all of the famous sights and landmarks. One of the best types of tours is an open-top bus tour. The tours are run in a hop on hop off style which means if you ever feel like a closer look at one of the sights you can get off and get back on later. There are also more specific tours available like the Harry Potter Tour or even The Beatles Tour.

    Art Galleries

    London is an art lover’s paradise with a brilliant selection of art galleries containing some of the best collections in the world. Two of the best galleries to visit are Tate Modern and Tate Britain. Tate Modern is Britain’s national museum of modern art and contains work by artists such as Matisse, Pollock and Warhol. Make sure when you visit you see what’s on display in the Turbine Hall. The largest exhibition space in the building, the hall always has something exciting to see.

    You can easily transfer from Tate Modern to Tate Britain by taking a quick boat trip across the river. Tate Britain holds the largest collection of British art in the world and you won’t want to miss your chance to see its great collection of paintings by the brilliant J. M. W. Turner.

    Department Stores

    If you’re a bit of a foodie then a great shop for you to visit is Fortnum and Masons. Founded in 1707, the beautiful store sells world-famous hampers and fine foods. If you visit in the summer you won’t want to miss the wonderful ice cream parlour they have inside.

    Cheap Flights to London, England

    Best Time to Fly to London

    London flights are always easy to come by especially since the tourist season runs year round, with peaks from June to September and again at Christmas. Spring is the best time to see the countryside and the royal London parks and gardens at their freshest. The mid-season is from April to May and early September to October. September through October is a great time of year to get cheap plane tickets to London and it can be the best time to visit.

    The British take their vacations mainly in July and August, so the resorts are crowded. London in summer, however, is full of interesting things to see and do. In winter, the weather can be dismal, but all the theaters, concerts, and exhibitions are in full season.

    Why you should take a flight to London

    When you book airline tickets to London, you’ll see that royalty exudes from every street corner, making London one of the most fascinating destinations on earth. Each year, millions of travelers book flights to London to visit the historical significance of Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, the Tower of London and a glimpse of the famous London Bridge.

    Like most European cities, London trips offer a comforting mix of old and new — take a tour the Queen’s jewels before ducking into a local pub for old fashioned fish-and-chips, or walk the streets and take in the mixed architecture that decorates the city streets.

    With all its forward motion, London still remains a treasure of its past. Travelers booking cheap flights to London will find a world of opportunity, education and inspiration in this quaint city.

    London climate

    Anytime is a good time to book a flight to London. July and August are the warmest months. However, you can never be guaranteed sun. January is the coolest month with temperatures in the low 40s. Spring and fall in London can be pleasant, as the temperatures are usually higher than the rest of the country. The rain is heaviest during November when the city averages 2.5 inches.

    Are Americans Safe in London?

    By Laura Porter. London Travel Expert

    Laura Porter has lived in the London area all her life and can’t imagine ever wanting to live elsewhere. London is her ‘specialist subject’ and she has written the About.com London Travel site since it started in 2006.

    This site was included in the “Top 50 Travel Websites ” in The Independent where Laura was described as a “mastermind” as “she has a knack for seeking out the unusual as well as providing plenty of practical tips”.

    The About.com London Travel site will help you plan a trip or enjoy armchair travel. It includes luxury and budget, the top attractions and the little known quirks that made the city so special.

    The wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, 9/11, and the 2005 London bombings, as well as more recent terrorist attempts on the capital – all of this could make you think twice about visiting London which would be a shame as the fear of danger far outweighs any real danger in our city.

    I have had emails from Americans concerned about coming to London as they do not know what kind of welcome they will receive.

    Continue Reading Below

    It seems such a shame that everyday folk who simply want to embrace the world around them by getting out and exploring new places should have these concerns but the UK and US national press do little to alleviate these fears.

    It is true that there is a large anti-war movement in the UK (Stop the War Coalition ) and we have regular rallies and demonstrations to protest against UK troops being in Iraq but this does not mean US citizens are not welcome in our city.

    London is one of the largest cities in the world and the most populated city in the European Union .

    London is an incredible multi-cultural society and we all live together quite happily most of the time. There are 7 million people, speaking 300 languages, following fourteen faiths in London and if we can get along I’m sure we can welcome overseas visitors.

    London tourism has suffered since world terrorism has caused a decline in US visitors. Hotels and major attractions have all lost out without our US visitors who are a major financial proportion of our tourism sector. There are many schemes to entice you back so do check with your travel agent for any special package deals for trips to London.

    Continue Reading Below

    CBS News did a poll in 2006 to ask five years on after 9/11, how safe do you feel now? The results showed 54% of Americans say they generally feel safe, but 46% say they feel somewhat uneasy or in danger. This showed opinions were still divided but I’m pleased to see optimism was starting to win out.

    In July 2007, we did a Safety in London Poll and the results showed most people wouldn’t change their travel plans following recent terrorist threats. Travelers are a resilient bunch. (You can count yourself in this group as even if you haven’t been to London yet, as you are here reading this site so you are thinking about it.)

    To conclude, I live in London. I have lived in London most of my life. I love London. I travel into central London every week. I visit major tourist attractions. All this makes me happy. I hope it can make you happy too.

    Further Resources

    Check the Personal Safety section of this web site which has tips added regularly.

    You can check the web site for the US Embassy in London for their latest Terrorism news (within Current Issues ) if there has been recent action to concern you.

    Visit London, the London Tourist Board offer these safety tips .

    The Mayor of London’s web site offers this advice for Safety when you re out and about .

    Cheap Flights to London

    A global city and crucial core of Europe, London is the United Kingdom s largest city and the capital of England. It has stood for over two thousand years, dating back to the Roman Empire, and continues to contribute to the education, entertainment, fashion, finance, research, and commerce industries on a substantial scale.

    London has one of the largest gross domestic products on the planet, is widely considered the world s cultural capital, and has the biggest passenger flight base of any competing airport system. It also attracts more international visitors than any other city on the planet; Babylon is a globally renowned tourist zone!

    Flights to London

    London has six international airports and a number of smaller, regional ones. Together, they represent the biggest flight system in terms of passenger traffic. A grand total in excess of 135 million people flew through its gateways in 2013. Heathrow, Gatwick, Stansted, Luton, London City, and Southend are the city s largest airports, the latter being the youngest of the group.

    Heathrow accounts for half of The Swinging City s flight traffic, making it the busiest airport for international visitors. Direct flights to London from the United States are available through American Airlines, Delta, US Airways, United, British Airways, and Virgin Atlantic (among others). Nearly 40 non-U.S. carriers offer nonstop flights to the city, including Lufthansa, Air Canada, Emirates, Air France, and SAS.

    For the love of London: What to Do in London

    Newcomers to the city often visit Buckingham Palace shortly after their arrival. See where the Queen of England lives and get a firsthand look at the London s heritage. The London Eye, Marble Arch, St. Paul s Cathedral, Tower Bridge, Trafalgar Square, and Westminster Abbey are other notable landmarks. Live musical performances in London are incredible to say the least, as are its theatre shows in Covent Garden, Leicester Square, and Haymarket.

    Helpful Tips for Tourists Visiting London

    There are many ways to get around London, thanks to its extensive public transportation network. The tube/underground subway system is quick and efficient, as is the Docklands Light Railway, and Tramlink service near Wimbledon.

    Invest in an Oyster Card, as it costs much less travel with one of these than with a paper day ticket. Given its compact layout, tourists can easily see much of the city attractions on foot as well. The pound sterling is Britain s official currency, and exchange banks are available close to each of the major airports. Skyscanner s online hotel price comparison tool makes it easy to find a reasonable rate on hotel accommodations for your stay. Use your savings to spend on a daytrip to the Royal Opera House or Electric Cinema.

    How To Do London On $25 A Day

    Nov 20, 2015 | Updated Nov 23, 2015

    Saturday: Art and Major Sites

    One of the best things about the UK is that most museums are free. Start your Saturday in Holborn at the British Museum. admiring the collections along with the building’s impressive tessellated glass ceiling.

    From there, stroll down to Covent Garden: one of London’s most famed areas, though a tourist trap, is worth a wander. Walk through the Piazza, then around the web of Seven Dials (seven quaint shopping streets that connect at a small roundabout), and don’t miss Neal’s Yard–quite possibly the quaintest, most colorful courtyard in London.

    A short walk away in Aldwych, Lundenwic is the perfect lunch spot. It’s a trendy, minimalist all-day cafe, which serves fresh salads, gourmet toasties, and great coffee. The roasted broccoli, cheddar, almond, and chili toastie ($8) is sure to hit the spot, washed down with a pick-me-up espresso ($0.75).

    Feeling fueled, head at a leisurely pace down The Strand, taking note of the iconic Savoy Hotel as you go, before eventually arriving at Trafalgar Square. Walk down Pall Mall to Buckingham Palace, or hang a left to see Big Ben and Westminster Abbey up close.

    Walk along the Southbank to the Tate Modern. Spend a couple of hours admiring the exhibitions (it’s one of the best galleries in the country, whether you’re an art aficionado or not), before heading up to the cafe on level 6, where we suggest skipping the coffee but admiring the stunning city views from its terrace.

    Cross Millennium Bridge, admiring the quintessential London skyline views as you go, and on the other side, it’s the mighty St. Paul’s Cathedral.

    It’s time for dinner. Jump on the DLR to Canada Water, which plays host to Hawker House, the latest incarnation from Street Feast. an organization that can be credited with revolutionizing the London street food scene. Hawker House is a late-night indoor market in a converted warehouse, with 14 food traders and eight bars.

    Sunday: East London

    You’re spending Sunday in East London, in neighborhoods that have changed and diversified a lot in the last 10 years, with the arrival of craft coffee shops, hipster cafes, and designer fashion boutiques. There’s a buzz in the air, the crowd is young, and when you pick the right places, your money can go far.

    After a long lazy lie-in, drag yourself out of bed and head to Beigel Bake on Brick Lane–a real institution that, along with being a favorite among locals, draws crowds from far and wide who flock to it 24 hours a day for its impressively cheap bagels. Though its salt beef bagels are a common favorite, go for the equally delicious salmon and cream cheese combo, and you’ll get change from $5.

    After eating, walk down bustling Bethnal Green Road–lined with fruit and vegetable stalls and dazzling sari shops–to the V A Museum of Childhood. Don’t be fooled, this isn’t a museum just for children. It’s a nostalgic spot for adults, too, with all the favorite toys from your childhood on display.

    Back in Shoreditch, potter along Redchurch Street, the neighborhood’s chicest street, where you can window shop the likes of A.P.C, Sweaty Betty, and Aesop. Marvel at the wonderfully colorful fresh produce outside Albion Cafe, before popping into Labour Wait. a small but perfectly formed homewares boutique, full of heritage brands, luxury stationery, and en-vogue Falcon enamelware.

    It must be lunch time, and on Sunday, Brick Lane is buzzing with international food markets. Expect crowds. Take cash. Then choose from everything from dim sum, to curry, sushi, Lebanese, and Thai. You’ll get an overflowing plate and change from $10.

    Next, head to Columbia Road Flower Market, London’s favorite, where you’ll join the hoards squeezing through the stalls, handing over cash to heckling East End traders in return for giant, paper-wrapped blooms. No East London Sunday is complete without such a purchase–even if they are only spending a couple of nights in your hotel room.

    Later, perhaps after dropping your flowers at your hotel, and putting your feet up for a quick half hour, it’s time to eat. Get out Google Maps for directions and hop on a bus (from $2.30) to Exmouth Market, an atmospheric street that’s home pretty much entirely to restaurants. There’s all sorts, from seafood restaurants to Thai, and Turkish. Our favorite–and one of the cheapest–is Pizza Pilgrims. the newest addition to the street, but one with a big cult following. Oh, let the night be merry.

    Student Guide to London Travel

    By Kathleen Crislip. Student Travel Expert

    Before you go to London:

    Lovely London, spendy but friendly, is a should-see student travel spot. Make plans before you go (scroll for all).

  • Should I make reservations in London?
    • Yes — see places to stay in London below.

    How should I pack for London?:

    Learn how to pack the basics — for London in spring and summer, add or subract clothing as you would for the Northeast US (like New York). Bring a very small umbrella and light rain anorak or jacket that can be rolled tight for toting in your day pack while touring. Bring an electrical converter — British wall plugs won t accept your electrical devices. Comfy walking shoes are a must.

    Getting to London:

    You ll find the best airfare to London from student airfare agencies like Student Universe. Watch for specials and you can save a bundle. Don t be fooled by some airlines student airfares — student airfare agencies have the real deal. Airfare sales do happen, though — check student airfares against an aggregator s roundup of regular ticket prices.

    • Student airfare finders
    • What s an aggregator?

    Air to London may be cheaper with an air/hotel package, but those stays are usually very short.

    Where should I stay in London? How much will it cost?:

    Continue Reading Below

    A West End (below) London hostel is the best way to go for budget lodging in London — funky little hotels can be charming, but London is very expensive. Ask to see a hostel room before you pay and choose a dorm (several bunks in one room) for the cheapest London lodging.

    Expect to pay $25-$35 for a London hostel bunk.

    Getting around in London:

    The London tube is a major miracle of modern transportation — learn to love it. Though it s the oldest in the world, London s subway (but don t call it that) is clean, safe and efficient. And if the tube doesn t take you close to your London destination s door, the bus (maybe a double decker!) will.

    Plentiful black London cabs have fixed prices — get a few folks to make a cab s cost equal the tube.

    British money and London budget:

    England s currency is the pound — don t plan on using euros. Exchange rate is bad (about $1.75 is normal). London is expensive — plan $55/day. Food and beds are spendy but clubs can be cheap; museums are free. You won t miss truly adventurous food by cheaply cooking in your hostel kitchen .

    What to do in London:

    London s history is long and deep — do tour the London Tower. For free music ideas, see the Free London List. Borrow someone s copy of the Time Out music/film/event guide or check Time Out online for non-free music happening in London. Consider buying a one day Original Bus Tour pass ($28) to hop on and off at major sites. Spend whole days hanging out in places like Piccadilly Circus or Covent Garden. Take a great (free) Soho podcast walking tour. And check the top free things to do in London.

    Safety, crime and travel health care in London:

    The artful dodger does lurk in the London tube — consider figuring out in advance how to stash travel cash. You can feel physically safe in all of London provided you use basic travel safety precautions. Terrorism is not a big concern, despite some US hysteria over the 05 tube bombings.

    US travelers get free emergency room care in London; all else is pay as you go, though your US health insurance probably covers you. Food and tap water are perfectly safe in London. You don t need travel immunizations for London.

    London photo galleries:

    Whet your travel appetite with some London photos meant just for student travelers — most were taken on gray days because, honestly, that s the sky you may see in London much of the year.

    London s West End is backpacker central:

    Think about staying in London s West End (north of the Thames River, west of Piccadilly Circus ) — try the Wake Up London hostel for cheap, safe lodging. You can walk to nearby Hyde Park and take the tube everywhere, like outdoor markets or Notting Hill.

    Mail, Internet and Phone Calls in London

    UK mail is quite speedy — if you ll be there a few weeks, set up a snail mail address.

    • Learn how to set up an international snail mail address

    You can buy phone cards good for making calls in England for about $3-5-10 USD in UK convenience stores, major train stations like Waterloo, your hostel and airports. You can also buy a UK cell phone for $50 or less and make cheaper UK calls than with a roaming US phone — look for phone vending machines (seriously) or try a Carphone Warehouse storefront.

    The Dover Castle Hostel (south of the Thames) has free wifi, but free or even cheap wifi in London hostels is scarce. Hostel internet access (their computers) is ludicrously expensive. London does sport internet phone booths on street corners — spendy but handy. Chain easyInternetcafe, boring but predictable, can be found in places like Burger King.

    London with a Tour Group

    Visiting London is so expensive that going with a tour group is a great idea — it can be cheaper and much easier than visiting on your own. Several companies specialize in student group travel — try EF Tours for a very decent experience: I ve traveled with EF Tours, and I would again.

    20 Secret Bargains of London #travel #odge

    20 Secret Bargains of London

    There’s just nothing in the world like my hometown – the architecture, the colorful street life, the even more colorful nightlife, the rainbow of eccentric and fairly friendly inhabitants, and better dining than at any time in its history (no cracks, please). Sadly, Cool Britannia has earned another nickname courtesy of our local tabloids: “Rip-off Britain.” But the truth is that especially away from the touristy downtown areas, London doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. If you aren’t afraid to take the bus, the train, the tube, or to arm yourself with a street map and walk, you can dig up some brilliant bargains in exciting places. (To call London from the United States, first dial 011-44-20. From within the U.K. first dial 020 for London; for other cities, dial 0 before the city code.)

    Notes from the Underground

    No question, the best way to get around is the weekly Travelcard (you’ll need a passport photo to get one), which covers the Underground (the world’s most extensive subway system), those red double-decker buses, and British Rail trains – especially good for navigating the further reaches of town. If you plan to explore only central London, buy a Zone One unlimited travel pass for £15.30 ($22.25); other passes cover up to six zones (£35.40/$51.50), but four will get you pretty much anywhere you’d want to go except Heathrow. The cards are available at all train and tube stations and tourist offices. There’s also a transport advice line (7222-1234) to help you get exactly where you want to go.

    Tips on the Thames

    Get started even before you leave the States, by visiting the vast londontown.com (which also has special offers on lodging and events) or calling the British Tourist Authority at 877/899-8931 for a free info pack; ask for the brochures Where to Stay on a Budget 2001 and the London Planner. Once over here, there’s lots of useful help at the London Tourist Board’s main information center at Victoria train station (whose tube station has the same name) and the Britain Visitor Centre at 1 Regent Street: mostly leaflets, booking services for tours and bus trips, and accommodation services. The weekly Time Out (£1.95/$2.85) still runs the top listings guide, but several newspapers now publish their own; the best is “Hot Tickets,” free with the Evening Standard (35p/50cents) on Thursdays. The free morning newspaper Metro (available at tube stations) also has listings for that day.

    Remember the scruffy local eatery that features prominently on the Brit soap EastEnders? (You can frequently find the series stateside on public TV.) Colloquially known as “caffs,” these cafes are the English version of diners – a real blue-collar experience, with simple food and sometimes gruff service. Here, they close at 6 p.m. and are beloved by construction workers and celebs alike. An all-day breakfast of eggs, bacon, sausage, beans, and toast hovers around the £3 ($4.35) mark; make sure you try some “bubble and squeak” (fried mashed potatoes and cabbage, very tasty local delicacy) with your brekkie. I recommend Mike’s Cafe (12 Blenheim Cres. Notting Hill, W11; tube: Notting Hill or Ladbroke Grove), Borough Cafe (11 Park St. around the corner from Borough Market, SE1; tube/train: London Bridge), Dishes Cafe (23 Cromwell Rd. near the Natural History Museum, SW7; tube/train: South Kensington), and Mario’s Cafe (6 Kelly St. near Camden Market, NW1; tube: Kentish Town/Camden).

    Cheap flights to London

    When a man is tired of London he is tired of life, Samuel Johnson famously observed, and the city offers a wealth of things to see and do. It is home to iconic historic attractions such as Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, the Tower of London and the Houses of Parliament. It also has world-class fine art and artefact collections at institutions like the British Museum, many of them free.

    These days London offers an eclectic mix of international cuisine, award-winning restaurants and traditional pubs such as Ye Old Cheshire Cheese which dates back to 1667. It also offers some of the best theatre around, a thriving and varied music and nightclub scene, and first-rate shopping.

    Attractions

    Buckingham Palace has been at the heart of the national life and millions of visitors flock every year to its gates to watch the ceremony of the Changing of the Guards. Similarly popular, Westminster Abbey is the place to visit to see where most of England’s kings and queens were crowned and buried, and the Tower of London, once a royal palace and later a prison, and a place of torture and execution.

    Madame Tussauds Waxworks also continues to exert a massive attraction for visitors with its combination of a Chamber of Horrors and life-sized figures of the great and good.

    Step back in time at Churchill’s War Rooms underneath Whitehall. Take the family to visit the London Zoo or Sea Life London Aquarium. Explore the tombs and monuments at St Paul’s Cathedral.

    Arts and Culture

    Whether you’re an art connoisseur or a casual observer, you won’t want to miss a visit to one of London’s many galleries and museums. See the British Museum with the Elgin Marbles, the National Gallery, Tate Britain and Tate Modern, one of London’s most popular attractions. All are free. Less well-known is the Cortauld Gallery which has gems by Degas, Gauguin and Monet.

    London’s theatreland is famed for the quality and diversity of its productions from blockbuster musicals to comedies and theatre classics. The South Bank, with its National Theatre, Festival Hall and Hayward Gallery, is a popular destination. And further along, for less than a tenner, you can stand with the groundlings and see Shakespeare as it may have been acted at the Globe Theatre.

    Eating and Drinking

    London offers eating and drinking to suit every taste and pocket. There’s no shortage of upmarket eateries for those with the money. However, there is also a wide range of cheaper options such as Gaby’s Deli on Charing Cross Road, patronised by a host of actors. Just up the road you can enjoy the best coffee in London at Caffe Vergnano 1882. For those in search of fine oriental cuisine your destination is Chinatown, while pub lovers are directed to the historic Lamb and Flag in Soho.

    Nightlife

    See a show in the West End. Hear some jazz at the legendary Ronnie Scott’s club. Go to a concert or recital on the South Bank. Or head for the dancefloor at Heaven or Ministry of Sound.
