I travel for work and travel for fun.
When I travel for work it's all very last minute and often long haul. When I travel for fun, it's about the planning and making my money go further and tends to be short haul.
Sometimes I can be on the road for weeks at a time then go for 3 months where I never leave the house.
The Heathrow express is the simplest and quickest option although it may not be the cheapest You could use the underground (Piccadilly Line - Blue) or bus and you would use an Oyster card for that. Yes you can buy them at the airport and I have actually seen quite a few... See More
You don't say which terminal you will be arriving at. Terminal 5 has a Sofitel London Heathrowactually attached to it. Get off your plane, clear customs, go to bed. Great hotel but not cheap Terminal 4 has a Hilton London Heathrow Airport... See More

My favorite bar come restaurant on the whole planet is a 10 minute walk from the castle. Hunt down the Klášterní pivovar Strahov for amazing traditional food and beer brewed on the premises. As you enter the courtyard, look for a small door on... See More
I have been from plane to Tarmac in Terminal 2 in less than 30 minutes. Likewise the worse I ever knew was an hour London Underground (Piccadilly Line) will be a steady hours journey as there are lots of stops but even then you should make it for about 9:30 so time... See More
Don't make the mistake of staying anywhere near the airports. The transport links from the hotels out there into the city are slow slow slow and you will end up wishing you had stayed more central. Aim to find a hotel in Zone 1 or at a push Zone 2 on the London Underground... See More
The easiest way is probably by train. There is a regular service from Stevenage to London (several trains per hour) with journey times ranging between 20 and 40 minutes. To get the best price on tickets, buy them online and in advance of the date of travel however the... See More
