Thanks.

Secondly, is it worth it to visit Brighton on a day trip?

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?
UCL hostels are pretty reasonable considering they're close to school and meals included for some.

The only alternative is to live in zone 2/3 if you really want to save the money.

I need to check on VAT refund.

I know the queue can get very long during this peak season. I was told the easier way is to do it after the immigration. They do have VAT refund after immigration, of course the items have to be hand carry with you.

Is that true?

I don't think that's true. I've done it a few times and it depends on the value of the items it seems. Just do it before immigration, and for some high value items they might ask you to bring it inside to do.

I am planning to go London next August for 3 weeks. Fly in to London. Is it possible to spent one week in Ireland, one week in Scotland and last week in London? Anyone travelled to these places before? Please advice.

Hi. I will be traveling between zone 1 and 2 back and forth on a daily basis for 2 weeks starting from a Monday. Noted there are 2 options - travelcard or youtrip (contactless). Noted that contactless is capped at the same price of travelcard 36.10. In this case contactless is better since my total fare could be either capped or lower. Any idea if I'm reading it correctly and if I'm missing anything?

Spoiler!
