For anyone looking to book train travel, (especially those coming from overseas) 'Advance' tickets (the cheapest kind, but tied to specific trains) have just gone on sale for 22/23 May.

They are supposed to be available 12 weeks beforehand, but in practice it's more like 10.5/11. So Advance tickets for 25/6th May will likely go on sale in a few days.

If you’re coming in from the West on GWR, they’re already on sale for 25th. I got mine yesterday from Swindon. I got singles each way for £11.50 ,which is the cheapest possible price for this very expensive route.

That hotel is very close to the stadium a ten minute walk.I have seen a few concerts at this venue and it felt safe but I was there only for the concerts so there was many people around,I don't know what it's like at other times.

For those interested, Jeff Beck will be performing in London on June 15th - four days prior to the Twickenham show.

Looking for recommendations....I have tickets for the 2 shows at London Stadium. Right now I have a hotel booked in Stratford, for the 22nd, but I may change it because they say it's about a 30 minute walk to the stadium.

But here is what I would like to know - for the 2 days between shows, I'd like to get away from the city and spend a couple nights in the English countryside, a place with easy transportation access to London because I don't want to rent a car....any suggestions?

The night of the 25th, I'd like to stay someplace in London with easy transportation access to and from the stadium, and when I get up the next morning, easy access to transportation to Heathrow as I ill be flying back the colonies on that Saturday afternoon.

Suggestions deeply appreciated.

The stadium is in Stratford so not sure how much closer you can get.

Sorry, maybe I didn't make myself clear, I'm not asking for suggestions on getting closer to the stadium....

Will be there any curfew for the London shows?
I remember that they had to finish the show at Wembley up to 10 pm or something.

Yes unfortunately I wouldn't think they will be allowed to go on past 10.30

From what I've read, most shut down around 10:30 or 11:00. I'm used to bars being open til 2 AM so this will be an adjustment.

First time in London and going to the May 25th show

We are staying at Le Meridan Piccadilly.

To get to the show? Just walk up to Oxford Circus and take the train (apologize if that is what it is called in London) to Startford? then walk to the Stadium

thank you

Yes you could take that option or you can take the Piccadilly line from Piccadilly Circus station to St Pancras station and from there you can catch a very fast train to Stratford International station and walk to the stadium in ten minutes.You could also walk from Piccadilly Circus to St Pancras in 30 minutes and then take the fast train.

No pub in London - or anywhere in the U.K. - closes as early as 10:30 Some still close at 11, but many close at midnight

My suggestion would be to walk to Green Park and then get the Jubilee Line direct through to Stratford.
