My friends and I stayed in the excel appartments - and they were lovely! It might be a bit pricy though - for 9 of us it cost us about £36 for 2 nights, which wasn't bad!


And for the newbs - ALWAYS BUY YOUR WIG EARLY! If you're wearing a wig that is - some of the companies take their timein shipping them out!

Sure! www.simplyapartments.co.uk - that link might not work though...

And yeah, getting wigs early is a great idea. I remember the fuss last October that the postal strike caused! :shock:

Hi SamSam *waves* LOL

yes...i am mad...but don't let that worry you!

On another note about hotels/apartments. If your not staying in a big group then the apartments will be very pricey and a hotel might be better for you. I think many on the boards stay at the Custom House but there are quite a few in that area but at various prices. If you do choose a hotel I recommend not booking it via the hotel directly as you can get cheaper deals through other sites. London30.com is good. I've used them alot when I've stayed up in London and the prices are really cheap/reasonable

http://www.london30.com/london-hotel-11 ... hotel.html

Custom House is the only one they've got a deal with atm but prices start from £24 per night pp. Not bad considering standard rate is £145 pn.

Lallalla.. =^__^=

Well i've been there and back and i must say i thoroughly enjoyed the experience. saw some great cosplays, took some great pics and got myself a Death Note which was a must get. didn't talk to as many as i would of liked but maybe next time i can get to know some of you better.

I got some great reaction from my Kaze - final fantasy unlimited cosplay and to those who were interested, thank you. my next cosplay willbe more epic. (see sig for details).
