Why not?

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.

Huzzah!

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. smiley - oksmiley - ta

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 smiley - bus 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.

smiley - cheers

Ah. smiley - erm 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. smiley - sadfacesmiley - sorry
Perhaps we could meet up at some other point...
