My wife and I are participating in this program starting 9/10/15 (really arriving 9/11). It's not clear to me if this board is for that program specifically or all dates of this program. Does anyone know if there's another place one goes to make acquaintance in advance of the 11th?

Janet Deaver Aug 21, 2014 at 09:13 PM

David and Donna, we just checked the hotel website and apparently the glouchester station is not operable. You
have to change trains . The information is on the hotel
website. I don't know if you saw that.

Janet Deaver Aug 21, 2014 at 04:47 PM

Thanks, David and Donna, we are still looking at options, but we will see you at the welcome dinner on Sun.

Janet Deaver Aug 21, 2014 at 02:38 PM

I forgot to put the arrival time. It is
11:50 am.
David & Donna Poole Aug 21, 2014 at 03:33 PM

Hi, Janet.
David & Donna Poole Aug 21, 2014 at 03:35 PM

It looked to us like the tube from Heathrow Terminal 5 to the Gouchester stop on the Picadilly Line was pretty easy. That's what we're going to do. We'll be getting in at 9:25am.

Janet Deaver Aug 21, 2014 at 02:37 PM

My husband and I arriving at Heathrow on
Sun. 24th August. Anyone arriving around
that time that might want to share a cab?

David & Donna Poole Jul 05, 2014 at 06:26 PM

I'm reading Some neg reviews about the Millenium Glouchester. We had been a bit concerned about the change of hotels, away from one that apparently had the river and Tower Bridge views, and closer walking distances from some of the more famous sites....

Janet Deaver Jun 05, 2014 at 12:53 PM

My husband are going to Independent London
Aug 23rd to Aug 31. Anyone leaving from
Atlanta for that trip?

Denise Pott Apr 26, 2014 at 09:06 AM

I attended a London Program in 2011 and fell in love with the city. Our guide was phenomenal; I can't wait to go back.

PS: I will be on the September 6-14 Tour
