Suggestion son trip to London

I alongwith my wife would be visiting London in March-end this year for 4 days. We would be landing at Standsted Airport, London from Rome. Please suggest on the following points:

1. London Weather in March. Should we take along heavy clothings.
2. How to go to Centre of London from Standsted Airport and back by using public transport ?
3. How to go for bus/metro passes/tickets for roaming in London.
3. What are the charges for taxi in London.
4. Reasonable hotel accommodation in London.

With best wishes,

Harry

For good weather information use the travel planner feature on www.wunderground.com. You can put in your dates and it will give you historical weather.

Friends of ours who visited from Germany and landed at Stansted liked to use the coach service which takes you to Liverpool Street Station but you can see various options at www.stanstedairport.com.

For London public transportation information www.tfl.co.uk.

For accomodation depends on your idea of "reasonable". But you could browse London here under hotels on Fodors.com or also on Frommers.com or tripadvisor.com

Also consider B&Bs, they can be quite nice and reasonably priced. One I've been at:

www.harlingfordhotel.com

Hotels can be expensive in London. Many here use Priceline to get deals. I've went in May and got a good price on flight/hotel package.

>>1. London Weather in March. Should we take along heavy clothings.<<

No telling. Could be nice, could be cool/rainy, could be downright cold. The main thing is to wear/pack clothes you can layer.

>>2. How to go to Centre of London from Standsted Airport and back by using public transport ?<<

There are both express trains and buses.

>>3. How to go for bus/metro passes/tickets for roaming in London.<<

Go to any tube/Underground (metro) station in central London and tell the agent how many days and where you are staying - and he/she will sell you the best tickets for your trip. There are typical passes but depending on whether you are there on a weekend and some other specifics there are options. Just buy what the ticket seller recommends - they will give you good advice.

>>3. What are the charges for taxi in London.<<

If you are on a budget, you probably won't have to take a cab anywhere. The tube and buses or walk just about anywhere.

>>4. Reasonable hotel accommodation in London.<<

There are hundreds and hundreds of good hotels. You need to tell us what you consider 'reasonable'. How much do you want to spend?

Dear Laurie,

The contents of the site on tranportation you recommended are not related to transport in London.
