Arrival in Gre at Britain
PADDINGTON STATION Our plane arrived in London in the late afternoon. Border control and airport security are an issue for every visitor of Britain’s capital so you should plan at least (!) 2-3 hours to get into town. Even though citizens of the European Union technically don’t need their passports yet to enter the country, you should bring yours to be truly safe. The new electronic passport features (a small sign indicates a biometric passport) with automatic control shorten the waiting times by at least 30-40 minutes. The airport includes typically British chains like Costa, Nero and Prêt-a-manger with options to get a quick coffee for the long trip to central London.
