Interesting that it is so bright around the England/Scotland border, wonder if they had flood lights on Hadrien's wall when this was done.

This topic has been raised before and I believe we came ot an agreement that the best thing about Javaranch, and the Saloon in particular is that many people do not even need to start a new thread with their questions because so much information is available in a search.
This would not be possible if questions were asked and answered in chat.

1hr each way for me and I use the time to listen to podcasts on topics that interest me. Music is also good as it puts you in a better mood before the working day begins and helps you unwind when it is over.

Thanks Angela. How about National Express bus ? Is it a good option ?



If you can get a bus to Bristol direct from the airport then it won't be too bad and it's quite an easy journey along one motorway, takes 2 hours. I would recommmend though for speed, ease and comfort getting the Heathrow Express direct to Paddington station and then the train to Bristol from here.

If you are considering the National Express option, think about which Terminal you will be arriving at at the airport. The main Coach station is in the Central area (Terminals 1,2& 3). I know SOME coaches stop at Terminal 4 but not all so if you are arriving at Terminal 4 you may need to get a bus or take a short trip on the underground to get to Terminals 1,2,& 3 and the Coach Station.

Sure, you can take bags onto the bus and train. I agree with Paul - the bus to Reading and a train from there is probably quickest. The tube into London from Heathrow takes forever.



Erm not if you take the Heathrow Express Train which will take you straight to Paddingtob Station.

Yes it more expensive but gets you there faster and in comfort (unlike the tube or a bus)

When you get to Heathrow look for the signs for the Heathrow Express, buy a ticket there and get the train to Paddington, the journey takes 15 minutes and they are lovely comfortable air conditioned trains. Bags will be no problem at all.

If you like garlic, (and I mean *really* like garlic), then the "Stinking Rose" is an interesting place to dine...




It is also the place that Myself, Paul Wheaton, Marilyn de Queiroz, Jim Yingst and Michael Ernest had dinner once a few years back while i was visiting SF with my parents. One of my favourite restaurants I've ever been to.
