how much money do you need to be granted a visa to visit the UK for 1 or 2 weeks?  (4 Answers)

In order to have the visa application approved, you need to show that you have a certain amount of money, the means to look after yourself for the duration of your stay and to get back to your home country on your own. You need to show that you have a reason to return home.. The person who will visit me from morocco is a student who wants to visit the UK for 1 or 2 weeks, they can also stay with me in my house so there is no need to pay for a hotel or anything like that, even food I would provide everything. But we dont know how much money they must show is in the bank account for the visa to be accepted or denied. There seems to be no guideline about any kind of threshold. Does anyone know more about how much money is needed for the visa application to be accepted?

Travelling by train and coach/bus in England  (21 Answers)

I am planning to explore England by public transport (train/coach) for two weeks in September. So far I haven't really decided about the exact destinations. These could be both Cornwall/Devon as well as Northern England/Yorkshire.

So what are your tips and tricks to get the best deals for train or coach trips. Is booking online and well in advance always the best option? Where should I book then? I have checked the BritRail Passes, which are only available outside the UK, but actually they still seem to be way too expensive even compared to normal fares.

Are there any discount cards or anything like this, which might make sense for me even for a two weeks trip.

Any help is much appreciated. :-)

transportation  (6 Answers)

here are so many options for travel in and around London and I am totally bewildered.
My sister and I (2 seniors) will be arriving at Heathrow on the 25th of August. We will be going to Bath that day and will be renting a car. We will drop our rental car back in Bath on the 6th of September and will travel back to London until the 11th.

So - do I have to go into London to get a train to Bath or is there another option.
Which travel card should I purchase for our days in London - we will be seeing as many sights as possible. Oyster card? Travel card? Card that gets us into museums etc. for reduced prices? We will also need to include transport to Heathrow on the 11th. Is there anything that does it all?

Hi, I'll be arriving at Heathrow early June at 9 p.m. I need to get as close to Lakenheath as I can. Train, bus? I have someone to meet me in the Lakenheath area. Was thinking Ely station? But I can't find a train (or bus) schedule to know if they run that late.
How would you do it if you were me? And is the train expensive, like more than 10-15 US dollars?

Enterprise Car drop off and Ashford International Rail Station  (2 Answers)

We are scheduled to drop off our rental car at Enterprise at 59 Godinton Road in Ashford and then proceed to the Ashford International Rail Station to board our Eurostar train. It looks as if the train station is about a half mile from the car rental agency. Is this walkable ( relatively safe?) If not, can anyone recommend an alternative to get to the train after dropping off our car?

I'm working on a two-week bike trip this summer in Devon, Somerset, and Gloucestershire, and need to check the bus routes available in case we get a bit tired along the way. That would be a backup to train routes:

What are good online tools to check which bus routes are available, each with their schedule?

Thank you.


Q   a VirtualTourist member asked a question · March 02, 2016
Northern England  (12 Answers)

I had thought we were going to do a trip to Scotland again this August and while I think we will still fly in and out of Edinburgh, I've been looking south of Edinburgh and am now thinking we may spend part of the trip in England and part in Scotland.

The place I know I want to go is Alnwick Castle and then I saw that was near Hadrian's wall and then Mr. Dabs said what about the Lake District and now I have twice as much as I have time. So if I do a loop from Edinburgh down to Alnwick, over to Hadrian's wall and then up to Oban (I really want to see Mull), are there any stops between Hadrian's Wall and Oban? It looks to be 4-5 hours by car and that's a long way to drive with nothing in between.

If I were to find a day or two for the Lake District, is it ridiculously crowded in late August? I think it will be midweek so at least not the weekend. Is it worth the trip from Hadrian's wall down for just a day or so? Personally I think adding the Lake District is too much, I'd end up trimming Scotland to almost nothing

Off-Peak Day Return question  (4 Answers)

I understand that the off-peak tickets are only valid after 9:30 in the morning. But I haven't been able to find out if they are also bound to a specific time in the afternoon. Can they be used on any train when going back? Or is there a certain rush hour, when all the commuters travel back and the off-peak ticket is not valid? I don't want to be bound to a specific train, but the difference between this ticket and an anytime return is more than 11 GBP so I'm thinking about getting it. This is for the London-Cambridge-London trains.

Thank you for your help.
