I'm going to be working from London for a week in September near Monument Station. Can you recommend some fun stuff to do after work or on the weekend? [more inside]
We arrive will be landing in London early morning and have about eight hours between when we land and can check-in at our airbnb. How do you recommend we kill this time? [more inside]
Might anyone recommend any particular alternatives to Uber in London? [more inside]
Our family is travelling to London for the first time, and we could use some help with the mundane details of deciding where to stay and how to get around. [more inside]
We're not huge on museums, but wouldn't necessarily pass up the British Museum. But what else should we do? mid-June. Using the "tube." Where should we walk? Where should we EAT? We live in NYC and eat in plenty of "good" restaurants so aren't looking for e.g some famous French chef's outpost in London. More "authentic" (what is that, anyway? no idea). Any place you particularly love? Is it silly to take a train to Oxford or Brighton one day?
I'm traveling to London with my family in late July and am looking for a place to park ourselves for an afternoon so we can see friends. Of course, we have more criteria inside: [more inside]
Posting this here as to not threadjack the other London thread, but might anyone know of any good indie record/thrift/book/zine stores (i.e. not pricey and offering items not usually sold at Mainstream Online Outlets e.g. punk, experimental, noise) in the London area? We'll be heading there in October and, while we won't have much free time, if we happen to have an hour or so.... (Not dissing on vinyl, but stores with at least some CDs (less likely to break during travel) would be preferable).
We're going to London for the first time in October (just us two, no kids) and I'm looking for a cheap hotel that's close to transit, preferably a tube station. Also, aside from stuff like the Tower of London, do you have any recommendations for quirky or occult/esoteric themed stuff that might be a little less touristy, like odd museums or bookstores?

My wife and I will be in London for work in April. What can we do on nights and weekends? Difficulty: I don't like touristy, "you pays your money and you takes your look" kind of stuff. More inside on what I do like. [more inside]
Should I book my trip now or wait until Brexit day? [more inside]
I was thinking of spending a couple of weeks in London in May. I've been following the Brexit news in a superficial way but I don't have a good feel for what is likely to be the impact on travellers from North America. What's the worse case scenario? What's the likeliest scenario? What kind of disruptions would be reasonable to expect? I haven't booked my flight or AirBnb yet but will probably need to soon.
Aunt is supposed to attend a business conference in London on the 27th and 28th of March and then Brexit happens and I'm worried bad things will happen. [more inside]

The future Ms. Ubiquity and I will be vacationing in London from Boxing Day through New Year's Day. We both know the city well, and would be happy to spend the time revisiting the British Museum, the V&A, the Tates, Westminster, the Palace and the Parks, etc., by day and the theatres by night. But what is there new or unusual that we might not have seen? [more inside]

Can you suggest a place to us to stay in London? Essentially we'd like the Bushwick of London: good food, good Tube access, not terribly touristy, not so hip that I want to murder everyone (so not Williamsburg-esque!) [more inside]

My wife and I are going to be in London in October, and would maybe like to attend an EPL match. I have questions about the feasibility/logistics! [more inside]
August 9, 2018
I’m going to be in London from Aug 11 to Aug 26, and I’ve looked up the predicted high and low temperature for those days. I’m wondering what outerwear I should have with me for the evenings. If the high for several days is about 24-25 C and the low is about 15, what should I expect around, say, 8 to 10 p.m? It would be helpful to have either a temperature or advice on what to wear over my daytime clothes.

I am taking my daughter to London in a few days, and from there she will meet a friend for the rest of her trip. I'll be on my own and would love some interesting ideas for the stay... [more inside]

I'm heading out to London next week and looking for some suggestions - I was there just this last September and have done most of the main touristy things, but am back to visit a friend. I will be staying near Chalk Farm tube station. I will be there five nights so suggestions for day trips and/or overnight trips are also good. [more inside]

I'll be vacationing in London for a week in late June, staying near Goldsmiths College in the southeast. I'd like to get out of the city for a day to see some of the surrounding area. I'm especially interested in medieval and Tudor period history, modern art, and nature walks. Happy to take the train or rent a car for the day, and looking to spend no more than about 2 hours of travel time each way.
