A Conversation for h2g2 London mini-meet, July 2013
Array Started conversation May 16, 2013
Can't really have a London Meet without MMF being about.
Put me down. Also if there is anything specific you want to visit, or want ideas, please let me know.
I can offer free entry to some events and, if you are agreeable, half-price entry to others.
Just let me know.
Kew Gardens is free, as are both the Tates, the Royal Academy and the London Wetland Centre.
I will add you to the list (as much as there is a list, at this point, anyway).
And I'm always happy to hear ideas and recommendations. I already know of a bunch of things I want to do, but it's great to hear from people who know the city.
Also, getting into stuff for free/discount is AWESOME.

As I am classified as disabled, it means I can take a Carer, so it's a form of 2 - 4 - 1.
More than happy to troll around, especially as I know most of the routes for getting to places and certain underground stations are doable. Just let me know your interests and preferences and I'd be happy to be your guide.
Ah. Hmm. Need to think about it - it kinda feels like cheating, and I need to figure out how I feel about that.
Preferences? Wide and varied, my friend. Museums are good (art and/or history, especially, not that interested in something like the Wax Museum). London Zoo is definitely on the plans. If I can fit in something like a play and/or an opera (at a reasonable price), that would be lovely; haven't really checked what'll be happening, yet. Much much lower on the list are the big tourist attractions like the Tower or Big Ben - might be neat, of course, but there are so many other things that seem more interesting.
Hey MMF. Been thinking about what I wrote here, and I do hope it wasn't offensive in any way - I really didn't mean for it to be, but kinda worried it might have been. And discounts or no, it's always nice to have a guide / company when touring a foreign city.
Anyway, at the moment it seems like the meet will be near the start of my London visit, on July 6 or 7, so might be best to just discuss this in person to figure out where and/or when we could go.
Oh, darn and double darn - I only just realised you weren't on the other thread (where a lot of the sorta-planning has been going on) :
And now, this is extremely short-notice, and I don't know if you can make it.
Perhaps we could meet up at some other point...
