      Hey Ali,

      I don't live in London, but my friend who plays and live in London spoke to me on Skype, so I'll copy the convo :)

      the vic for all
      [16:16:05] plo runs 2/5 mb 5 times a week
      [16:16:06] game is good
      [16:16:17] around 5pm-8pm is when you'd expect it to start
      [16:16:22] tends to run till early hours like 4ish
      [16:16:33] about 50% of it will be full ring
      [16:16:44] vic nl200-nl500 best
      [16:16:50] nl1k at palm beach best game in town if he fancies a shot
      [16:16:54] only runs weekdays
      [16:16:59] and sunday
      [16:17:02] friday and saturday palm beach doesnt run
      [16:17:12] no hotel/hostel recs
      [16:17:21] but there are a lot 2 mins from vic on sussex gardens
      [16:17:28] which arent partic nice but are ok price (for london) and are close to vic

      That's the money you gonna pay, obv cheaper if you both share the room. I would expect that in Paddignton would be cheaper (did not stay in hotel in London for many years, so cant tell the price) and it is not so far from the places where you want to go.
      If you planing to come for longer then you might consider to rent a room & share flat, depending on the place but it is possible to get sth for about £150 per week incl bills and internet. (but still it is not gonna be in: victoria, pimlico, sloane square, etc - is just too expensive). You will need to commute to work :rolleyes:
