    For those who know (and those who don't), I am invading your country next year! (And no, I won't be returning that tiny little urn that the Aussies will reclaim in Dec/Jan) I am hoping to be over for Collectormania and some annual celebratory event that is held for me (aka my birthday). Now, as Collectormania falls at month end (accounts people would know what I'm talking about cause I work in an accounts department), I need a viable excuse to let me have a couple of weeks off. Birthday, wedding, etc, etc. Please try and make these legit excuses. I'll cry if I can't get off the dates I want, but I still want to visit my fellow Jedi, Sith and Bounty Hunters!

    It will be great to have you here Nat :D

    Besides attending Collectormania, what sort of things are you interested in doing?
    We have a bunch of free museums and a lot of decent West End shows.

    Oh, West End is definitely on my radar! This time I want to see more than two shows! I have done most of the toursity things in London, so I want to see other things. Maybe see a bit more out of London.

    Do you think if I said "Star Wars Convention" that will only be in London then, that they'll believe me???

    Yay!!! [face_dancing]

    So... any suggestions to what to do? Who wants to come see a musical with me? I'm paying!
    Anyone know of decent, cheap accommodation? Free even? (that means I'll cook and help out!)

    Accomodation in London is not cheap anywhere unfortunately.

    Accomodation anywhere is never cheap. Really, I'm just looking for a place to crash everyday. Most of teh time I will out sightseeing or hanging out with my good friends from FF:UK! I'll most likely end up in a backpackers unless someone wants to put me up (highly doubtful, but worth a try!)

    If you know where to look (which I don't unfortunately) I have heard that there are several cheap women-only backpacker places in London

    I will have to check that out. Apparently there is this search engine called "Google" that helps with things like this!

    When I moved to London I spent the first days at St Christopher's Inn. I found their prices to be quite acceptable and I think they let you book a women only room if you want.

    Just don't type "Google" into it, otherwise you will break the internet
