For those who are traveling into London for both Hyde Park shows what is everyone doing between the shows?

I am planning on seeing LCD Soundsystem in Brixton on the 28th and heading to Rock Werchter on the 30th for Pearl Jam, First Aid Kit and War on Drugs.

Hey ya all. Have come in late to grab tickets. Going with my daughter and have got two for the gold vip hydeaway. Kinda figured out that the hydeaway is at the back of the stage and we get in via gold circle Ronnie side. My question is has anyone had these kind of tickets before and any advice? This will be my daughters first time she's in her forties so standing ain't a thing for her it's just her old man ie me that has the week bladder

The only downside to only see the Stones at the London shows is that we wont get to see the new stage setup.

First time visit to London & Europe. Which one of the airports is closest to London? I've been tracking the distance from the hotel to STN, LTN & LGW. Looks like they are about 30+ miles away. I haven't checked Heathrow yet. Thanks!

London Gatwick is the closest to Hyde Park, I’d say. You can get the Gatwick Express rail service direct from the airport to London Victoria station.

I´d chose Heathrow or London City Airport. Form Heatrow take the tube (Piccadilly Line)

Yes, of course. It all depends on the location you’re travelling from. For me, it’ll be a walk to Marble Arch and Hyde Park from Victoria. My brother and I will be meeting in the Pimlico area for beer and food - mainly beer! - before making our way to the park.

Hi Sockers. I think timbernardis introduced us at the shidoobee party last November in Florida smiling smiley Honestly, if you're flying from the US it really doesn't matter which airport you are using. I used Luton, Gatwick, Heathrow and most often Stanstead and you have good train connections from all of them. I would look after the cheapest flight, not after the nearest airport as all have their advantages and disadvantages.

Heathrow looks like it's nearest to town but you have to take a long ride on the tube if you don't take the expensive express while the train from the other airports takes you directly to central London (different stations)!

Book your train tickets in advance! They'll be a lot cheaper then!

Hello,

Saw this posted on my old great mate Dave Hepworth's Twitter doo-dah:
"Is this how the group formerly known as the Rolling Stones now bill themselves?"



Good point, well made. Forever it shall be, "Ladies and Gentlemen, will you please welcome...The Rolling Stones!"...

Cheers,

Simon.

To be fair, they billed themselves as just "Stones" all throughout No Filter.

Heathrow is closest to central London at 15 miles, although travel time by train isn’t significantly shorter than the journeys from Gatwick or Stansted.

London City airport (LCY) is even closer. Beside that Heathrow's biggest advantage is that it is well conncected to London by public transport (Piccadilly Line) – you don't need to pay for expensive tickets for Gatwick or Standstad Express.

I have ever used all 4 airports around London and recommend Heathrow for first timers.
Metro line access from termimals to city centre is a huge advantage. No need to care about airport bus stop location and drop off point in the city.

London City Airport is also good but I guess it has only short distance flights between european cities. Very limited usage especially from another continent.

I will land on Luton from Milan though.

Stansted and Gatwick are both well-served by frequent trains into central London. London City is only served by DLR, iirc.

well, tickets for Gatwick Express are 18-20 GBP while the tube from Heathrow to London is just 6 GBP…

Can we all agree that it makes more sense to look for the most suitable/cheapest flight than for the arrival Airport in London?

Btw in 2018 I payed more for transportation from Stanstead to London than for the actual flights...6,99€ per flight with Ryanair.

of course. My point is just: if you have a choice Heathrow or LCY are more convenient.

Anybody here any idea about (the timing of) the completion of these Hyde Park days' line-ups?
Surely other acts will be announced...? So any guesses on who/when?

Thx -

Obviously one day before 25 June show, Elton John and one day after Eagles, both in BST Hyde Park smileys with beer
