FoylesBookstore • London, United Kingdom
Make time for the cafe upstairs.
Choose downstairs for less formal dining and a great opportunity to check out their store cupboard!
Better than the chains if you must eat in the heart of tourist London.
Don't confuse it with the bigger Park Plaza (Westminster?) across the road.
Get here early if you're collecting pre-ordered tickets on a morning, especially Monday. Otherwise you may miss your train.
Right across the road from arrivals, cheap, clean, comfortable & free wifi.
Don't bother expecting to do EasyJet Bag Drop early - opens same time, same queue as for check-in - 2 hours before flight time.
Microwaved food. Buy lunch from the market across the road instead. Cheaper and better.
There's a coffee shop on the top floor. Get a window seat for people watching.
Menton really does have its own micro climate. Don't eat the oranges off the trees outside the station. - they're bitter. Beautiful town, has good places for lunch & Cocteau museum.
Great second hand book and print market on Saturdays.
From airport use the S-Bahn S45 to Südcreuz and change there for S and U Bahn across/around Berlin. Single ticket around €3.20 per person, takes about 30 minutes.
Don't use the 24hr Gourmet stand for food - the same stuff is in the nearby supermarket at 25% of cost.
There's all kinds of helpful IT folk here
