Trip to London...

by David8590 » 21 May 2007, 19:39

Does anyone know about left luggage services these days? I am meant to be visiting family after the embassy visit, but then realised I can't take bags etc to the embassy. I dunno if I can leave stuff at railway stations anymore. Hmm...

I've left stuff at Victoria coach station and Victoria train station before. It's pretty expensive at train stations though. I'm sure I paid 7 quid for a few hours.

We left our stuff at Kings Cross a couple of years ago and it was £6.50 for each piece of luggage for 24 hrs.

Theres a list of the stations in London that do it here

I left my luggage in left luggage at glasgow central station about 4 months ago and it was provided by a company that i know provides left luggage services at other stations including Birmingham and they scanned them ths same way as they do when you go through security at an airport.

Thanks people, it turns out you can still leave stuff at stations. I thought they had stopped it with all of this terrorism malarcy.

I think that might be why they have introduced the scanners for when you check you luggage into left luggage.

When I had my visa appointment loads of people seemed to be able to bring bags and rucksacks into the embassy with no problem, they have security luggage scanners.

If we have a smaller bag, is it possible to leave it with the CA guys outside the embassy? I mean, I have to transport the forms somehow...
