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.

I'm going to go see a show in London in mid-May, and it will be my first time really traveling internationally (not counting a cruise that didn't really count). I'll be traveling solo. I'm generally pretty well-organized and low-stress about travel planning, but could use some advice from seasoned jetsetters for this trip. Specific questions and a recommendation request under the fold. [more inside]

We're landing in Heathrow at 5am on the 26th, and the fast train's closed. London transport says there'll be a coach into central London where I can switch to the tube (our Airbnb is near Poplar station), or I can book a taxi directly. Plan C is to take the coach to central London and stow our big bag at a luggage drop off place, get brunch and wander around for a while, then go to the Airbnb after lunch. I'm travelling with a 6 year old and a moderate budget - which option would work best?

I'm going to London between Christmas and New Year's, to meet another of my children, and hopefully catch some sights. I have maybe 6 days max in the city and some logistics questions. Both of us are decent travelers in Asia. [more inside]

A few years ago (2014) we took a trip to London and fell in love with the pithy poems of the Travel Better London campaign. I'd love to have one or more to hang in our guest room, but am not able to find any for sale. Ideas?

About ten years ago you all helped someone transfer from Gatwick to Heathrow within a 4-hour window. I'm going the other direction and my transfer time has one hour less. Please hope me! [more inside]

We’re on a plane to London right now, arriving around 8 AM tomorrow morning. Where, near Covent Garden or Trafalgar Square, can we sit down and have a low-key breakfast around 9:30 or 10, that’s tasty and leisurely? No particular food preference, and no dietary restrictions. I know there are a million places around there, but the “leisurely” is hard to narrow down. ££ or £££ out of ££££.

does anyone know how I get to the QE11 centre on time for a 9am start? Living near Battle East Sussex and all the train times are currently showing Victoria as my only direct option. I know there have been problems with Waterloo engineering running over...but HALP?

I've asked before about a short London jaunt, and then reported failure. But this time it's happening for sure. I fly into London Heathrow, arriving at 8 AM, and take a train out of Euston Station to Manchester at 4 PM. Help me join the dots in the most scenic way possible? [more inside]

My commute is such that I need to get a bike I can leave at the train station overnight, so I can cycle the last bit of my journey. I'm going to get a second-hand one (budget about £100), but what should I be looking for? (I don't know much about bikes.) [more inside]

I'm temporarily relocating to London from the States for 3-6 months for work. Since I'll be there for an extended period of time, what are the not-just-the-highlights things that I should do and see while I'm there? Bonus points for seasonal events, weekend trips, and good events listing sources. [more inside]
