try giffgaff or three.. both have unlimited data package for 30 days.. three connection is better though....
Thanks! Tried gift gaff. Not bad except for certain tube lines where connections are unstable. Other than that, not bad. I also have EE line to play safe which is stable and reliable too in London.

Check your PM.

Anyone traveling to UK and Europe can PM me for free SIM cards which will have data for countries in UK and Europe. Delivered to your SG address and free £5 credits. (for reference, a 4gb 1 month plan is £12). It's more expensive to buy at Heathrow as the SIM itself is not free already.
Hi

I am travelling to UK and Europe in Oct/Nov.
I dont have 10 post count could you pm me instead?
Thank you.

Hi. I have a 4 friends who intend to study in London for 6 months @ UCL. But the hostel etc is extremely expensive. Any recommendation for places with direct train to UCL?

Primark

I heard about Primark. It is said to b a fantastic place to shop and buy stuff. But the one near to Hyde Park, I heard is very packed. Do u recommend for me to go there or should I go somewhere else instead? Heard there are Primarks in other shopping centres too...

Thanks in advance.

Plan a 12 days to Europe tour next year.. read from internet that western is better than Eastern part...So I suppose will follow toward this direction for 13days... safety wise it is danger to walk on the street during night time. and any good packages deal from local agents.. Don't much to follow tour too. newbie

Thank you for your kind advice, sir. Will not join the maddening crowd then.

What's your take on Selfridges dept store? Do u think it is a "must go"? I m planning to visit Harrods though...

To be honest, nothing in particular. Just that I read it is a high-end dept store. The British pound is already pricey, let alone buying high-end stuff!

Cos I saw from the map that it is way off from Harrods... so I m not sure if it is worth visiting...

When I did my homework, I realised there are a lot of good places to visit in London such as Museums, Markets, Parks etc...

The British pound is at a 10 year low, if you're looking to buy branded you save so much more... + tax refund

Harrod's and Selfridges are all fairly high end, so if you don't plan on buying anything then also no point going unless you're in the area and want to see see

Thanks for the reply. I might just spend some pounds on a branded good for myself or the wife.

On the other hand, I might give Selfridges a miss. May just take a bus ride and see their windows display instead. I think a trip to Harrod's would be enough as an experience. Thanks again!

I'd rather spend time in the free museums in London with the kids instead. They wouldn't get to buy stuff there. Haha!

Bank of England not changing old coins, which I still have some left. So it's as good as useless now?
