1. Yes, once you are in the UK, you can extend your 3 month tourist visa to six months. However, once six months is up, you will need to leave the UK and apply again for a fresh tourist visa if you want to stay longer in the UK. Six months is the maximum stay allowed on a tourist visa. here is a link to the UK Government website which explains how to apply and the fee applicable https://www.gov.uk/standard-visitor-visa/extend-your-visa
