I might, might, might have funds to do a youth-hostel, red-eye, no-frills visit to someplace foreign.

And since I've already been to the other cultural capitals on my bucket list (Paris, Rome), I'm might try London, in the fall. It'll be nice to visit someplace where I can speak something like the native language. smile

I haven't traveled by air in ages (and to Europe in about 30 years).

How do I get a cheap flight? Can I still bring my own food on the plane now?

If you book your London trip to coincide with the Williams concert on October 26th, you might run into a lot of fellow film music fans, including yours truly.

I'm assuming you're in the US. The most competitive transatlantic airline is Norwegian, who are a no frills airline that offer very cheap tickets. Occasionally they offer sales. For example, I've seen one way tickets from San Francisco Oakland Airport to London Gatwick for as low as $69. Currently, the October price on that route is $164, which is still pretty good.

Well I HAVEN’T got tickets for the Williams concert but I’m tempted to be down there for the social aspects.

You have been warned...

London is a very cool city just to walk around. If you're on a budget, there are plenty of museums, parks, and sites you can enjoy for free. Recommended.

Oh, my $69 is worth pursuing. I'll try Norwegian.

Thanks, Litefoot.

Not sure exactly when I'll go, Thor.

When I stayed in the youth hostel in Boston, I ran into JW there. If it happens again in London, I don't want him to think I'm stalking him. smile

I'm glad to see I can rent a bike at public stations in London. I sure got tired of ankling it on these trips.

Do they have health food stores in England?

Type BARRETT AND HOLLAND LONDON LOCATIONS in google. There's tons, apparently.

But pie shops will be better for you. Honest.

Bob over to Greenwich and see The Cutty Sark, there's also a nice park, Greenwich Observatory, and a great pie and mash place there called Goddards of Greenwich.

Holland & Barratt, Wanderer - you’ve been away too long!

But good call on Greenwich and the Cutty Sark.

Yeah could also google Spencer and Marks, general and legal, and Ramsden Harry. wink

Do you really want to go to London?
If you are going to come to england stay in somewhere nice like Bath or at the south coast. London is such a shithole now, dib. And anyone not used to all the dangers of cycling on london's roads shouldnt attempt it unless they have a death wish and want to see how long you can lay in a hospital corridor with your leg hanging off.

I always knew that that John Williams guy was a cheapskate.

DinB won't acknowledge this, but this tune by Morrissey will be his theme as he steps out of his hostel and into those bustling London streets (which put NYC to shame, imo):

Billy-bob, I used to cycle in Los Angeles, where car ownership is a fetish. (Although I might find it a challenge riding on the wrong side of the road! smile )

Also, I'll be doing this on the cheap every step of the way, so traveling from the airport to the city will be the longest ride I pay for.

I'll start a list of inexpensive places to visit. Thanks for adding to it, TW!
