Travel

  • Find your way around London using this handy online journey planner
  • If you’re travelling from outside London and you’re planning to stay for more than one day, buy an Oyster card as it will save you a lot of money. You can even order it online and have it sent to you before you leave for London.
  • It also might be worth investing in a A-Z map of central London (you can find them in most newsagents and bookshops) and/or the London version of the Not For Tourists guides
  • A collection of various London transport maps (for tube, buses, rail, etc.) can be found here.
  • It’s always good to check the TfL website before you leave the house, especially at weekends, because there are a lot of station closures and engineering works which might affect your journey.
  • If you’re flying from another country and need to buy train tickets to get anywhere outside of London, always try and buy your tickets in advance as it’s much cheaper than buying them on the day of travel. Also, check out Megatrain for some good bargains.

Accommodation

There are several cheap(ish) hostels in central London – we can’t recommend them as we’ve never stayed there, so it’s worth having a look on the internet for reviews and stuff. But here are some places:

Ashlee House (Kings Cross)

Generator Hostel (Russell Square)

Piccadilly Backpackers (er, Piccadilly)

St Christopher’s Inns (various areas, including Camden, London Bridge, Hammersmith etc.)

If anyone’s got recommendations or something to chip in regarding travel and accommodation, we’d really appreciate a comment below.

    What time does it start on the Friday? I’ve looked and I’ve looked, but I can’t find it anywhere.

  2. It’ll be normal gig time on the Friday, 8:30pm. We’ll update the bands/schedule page soon with all those details.

  3. London är en fantastisk stad, finns mycket att se och göra. Vill ni se bilder eller kanske ladda upp egna bilder så är det helt gratis att ladda upp eller se andra användares bilder.

    Folks planning to attend the festival and looking for a decent and affordable accomodation may want to check this out: http://www.anchorhousehotel.co.uk/
    It is my favourite place to stay whenever I happen to be in London and I strongly recommend it.
    See you all in a couple of months!

    Try couchsurfing instead of rubbish hostels full of pissed up Aussies on tour and well….the rest of the world!

    I know on the Banner at the top of this page it’s supposed to look like a worm being thrown in the sea on the end of a fishing line but, it actually looks a bit like a quite long penis with a very bad case of genital warts, or some very curious piercings.

    That is all.
