4th March 2012 London Meet
« on: January 10, 2012, 03:02:24 PM »
OK all,

Carol (Sarasocke to some), is over in the UK for the weekend of 3rd & 4th March 2012. So, it seems like a good excuse for a meet.
Carol would like to see some sights of London - so this is a proposal for a meet around London.
With it being a Sunday, the South Bank will be active, as will Speakers Corner - whilst the financial district will be quiet.
And that's just for starters.

I haven't nailed the exact time and place for meeting yet, but feedback is certainly welcome to all possible attendees.

Thanks for posting Andrew!

I'll be flying over already on the 3rd and will be staying for two nights most probably - if anyone knows of a cheap and cheerful B+B I'd be most grateful.
So from my side of things we'd have the whole of Sunday to play with :)

I don't know one end of London from the other, so I'll leave the venue suggestions to those in the know.

Count me in!  I'm happy with Southbank or Speaker's Corner or the financial district (which is good for Petticoat Lane, Spitalfields and Brick Lane) or anywhere really!

I'm just reading a who-dunnit set in Brick Lane - I didn't realise it actually existed  ::)

Brick Lane - i'd like to say it is the origin of the phrase 'bricking it' when indicating fear, but that would just be wishful thinking.

TBH, it is possible you could fit all three areas in, according to how long you're prepared to be out for.
You could meet at London Bridge Station
Walk along South Bank to Westminster and catch tube up to Hyde Park.
spend a few hours heckling the speakers - or even taking some photos (and if Aber's joins in be amazed at how close up he gets to his subjects)
then catch a tube over to Liverpool St or the Monument for the Financial District just as the light is getting low.

In between you can fit in some lunch and a good excuse to rest your feet  :tup: :beer: :)

Sounds like a plan :tup: (although you know of my dislike of the tube). Hopefully Keith (Krennon) will want to come along too.

good point, don't think i have his personal e-mail address - can you advise him please Irv.

As for using the Tube, i envisage only 2 trips on the tube at most - and that's using that suggested plan. Who knows how the day will pan out - you know how these things work  ;)

Glad to see you're still around Martin  ;)

Looks like we should be able to get a good group together. I'm really looking forward to it!

ooh, Focus is that week? Excellent - i know where i'll be on the Wednesday then  :tup: Nice D4 out the window for £3k or a 1DX out the door for £4k.

Tell you what, if i could get either for those prices i'd get them - heck could make a profit just on eBay  :dance:

Gutted I can't make it guys sorry I really wish I could, but I've booked the thur/fri before that weekend off work as Georgia and I are planning to go away, possibly down wiltshire/hants borders or somewhere in that general direction we were thinking maybe Salisbury as we've never been there.....but if that changes I shall let you know obviously and I hope the weather holds out for you all and you get some great shots in the bag....

Brick Lane still the best place in London for a proper Jewish fresh baked bagel with cream cheese and cucumber delicious although I think there's only two Bagel Shops left now used to be loads there....(going back some 25 years now or so though)

Have a great time and Carol I hope you thoroughly enjoy your visit you'll be in good hands with fellow cc'ers and yep I'm jealous..

Irv thanks for the heads up...
