London on a six-hour layover

I've lived in New York and Boston and Sydney; I've spent time in France, Greece, Germany, and even a week in Manchester; I've been through Heathrow many times, but I've never set foot in London proper. And now I'm heading to Germany on Friday, and have another layover in Heathrow. But this time it's different: I have a six hour layover, a US passport, and a single carry-on bag, nothing checked. Help me do this. [more inside]

Campervanning family holiday in Scotland in early May. Yay! I've googled like mad and bought a guide book, but what's really worth seeing? And what aren't they telling me?

Family Bicycling Near London

We're staying in London late August/early September. We want to see the Cotswolds and West Sussex. We're thinking overnight trips where we take a train out of London and then get around by bike might be more fun than renting a car and driving around. Is this plausible? [more inside]

Looking for an RPG Store in London

That's role-playing games, of the pen and paper variety, not video games or some kind of munitions or anything else. I'd be especially interested in a place that would have a good selection of indy material, especially if it was of UK- or European origin. (And I'm asking about London in the UK).

London touristing for the older and non-English speaking tourist

Looking for suggestions for London touristing in March. We'll be with a 65+ couple who don't speak English and one of whom has some fatigue and mobility (no assistive devices) issues. What are some fun things for us to do? They'll be staying with us in central London and we're right on the Northern Line. Bonus points for free/low-cost activities and vegetarian eats. Thanks!

What's a good hotel in London with very comfortable rooms?

I'll be in London somewhere around June 2016 and am looking for hotel recommendations. My stay will be approximately one week long.

I would be very gratified if I could get some hotel recommendations in the 200 to 300 USD range (although if you happen to know of some amazing sub-200 USD hotel, please do tell). [more inside]
