How far is the embassy from Kings Cross including fairs?

by Tom0937 » 21 Mar 2007, 12:51

Hey guys hoping to have my appointment on the 18th but just wondering how far away the embassy is from Kings Cross? Plus how much it would cost to get there via train? Any help would be appreciated :)

Hey...

its only about 15 minutes on the tube from Kings Cross...

Get on the underground at Kings Cross, take the Victoria Line. Change at Oxford Circus and get the central line to Bond St tube. Its like a two minute walk from there...

You might be better off buying a day pass for about £6... or whatever it is these days!

Hope its of some help!

Tracy

Ohhh i see. I've seen a couple of posts from people in Leeds, they're going to London. But saying that there's been mention of cheap flights to Belfast.. only thing with that is wheteher you're willing to fork out for accomodation??

Now that i've just gone completely AROUND the the subject to get to the point.. i reckon London is your best bet!

When you leaving for camp?

Yea good point, not a chance i'm forking out for accomodation, not that i'm tight but we need as much money as we can get at the moment! I think my wallet's that light its flying away out the window. Plus i'm not too Banned Word about the waiting just the cost, never seen London before so should be a good day! Saying that my luck it will rain and I wont have a coat! Thing is though I might drive as it may be fun to take a few mates but I dont have a clue about how much it will be in petrol, aswell as parking. You had your visa appoinment yet?

Oh btw the "Milkman" in your myspace photos - Legend!

personally i'd go on the train to London... i work in there and its fair to say it's a fricking nightmare, traffic, parking and the poxy congestion charge!! It'll cost you an arm and a leg if you drive and you'll end up going into your visa appoinment in the worst mood, purely due to the idiots that drive around london (cyclists and cabbies!!).

Oh haha yep thats my brother... he decided to cover himself completely in shaving foam 10 minutes before we had to go out. Banned Word clown!

I'm flying out on June 1st... my camp has only employed three new staff this year so theres not many of us travelling there together!! Had my visa appointment at the begining of the month.. its was a feezing cold day and i forgot to take a book and because i didnt take my phone or ipod i was VERY bored!!

Point taken, you've just made me make my decision :) Think I'll go to belfast

Nah joking :) Will be training it to London and I think I might need more than a book, might take buckaroo with me for a laugh and watch people's faces and saying "What the **** is that guy doing" Thing is though they say that Ipod's are banned, if you have one for the long trips do you have to wait in a seperate que to hand them in?

lol what did you say then? space the letter out ;)

i said A...S....S (who knows whether they'll post it this time!!) but anyways its your Gluteus Maximus!! haha. I'll end up getting kicked off this forum!

Uhm well they said NO ipod, keys, mobiles and electronic devices...

I only took my keys because i'd have no way of getting in at home!! It really made no diference.. You still all join the same queue but all that happens is you leave them when you pass the 'security check'. They lock your stuff away and give you the key. So by all means.. take your pod our the journey could be very boring!
Buckaroo sounds like an awesome idea... it'll all be fun and games on the train til you get soemone in the eye! oh well, these things happen!!

hey tom... saw that you said you might drive down to london...
im at uni in leeds, and have driven down a few times but its pretty expensive, i end up using about £40 petrol for the round trip, sometimes more... you're probably best off getting the train.. if you book it in advance and have a young persons railcard you can get it pretty cheap sometimes. when's your appointment?? xx
