I always forget that this goes on and a couple of years ago I was taking a scenic walk past the eye on my way to the aquarium thinking, 'Who the hell are these loons in ng shirts - is this a convention or just a general geek-meet? Fucking tourists'.

I guess on a level it is both these things.

I tried to buy food on the card and then I managed all of last year's meet with < £50 cash. It worked well, so I'll be trying to do the same this year.

So long as I've still got a job by then, I figure I'm good...

Good strategy. Wish I'd done something similar. If I do end up coming (shut up Luis) we'll just sit in the corner, start you on your road to addiction and talk in-depth about all the members of the programming forum, those we like and those we despise.

Im only 15 ATM so theres not much point in me going, id have to take the train for about 2 hours each way anyway, so ill probably wait until the 2013 meet then I can come, and hopefully I will have a car then too.

What time is the meet on the seventh? I'm actually considering booking the day of work and coming down. Yup, you heard it. If anyone wants to lend me a floor upon my arrival it'd be greatly appreciated. Otherwise I'll sleep on the street and not really care. I've slept worse :)

Yeah, I ain't good with travel websites. Usually I just go to the station and pay on the day. Anyone have any idea how much (roughly) it'll cost from Newcastle Upon Tyne to London, return obviously.

Become good.
If I buy a ticket for tomorrow, I end up looking at £60 each way with a young persons.

If I book in advance (from newcastle to london) I can get there and back for £53.80.

If I go by coach, on national express I can get a return for £13, however it's a coach and it's 7 or 8 hours long, whereas the train journey is about 3 hours each way. I don't know what your money situation is like but I'd be prepared to fork out the extra money for the train.

But regardless of whether you go by coach or train all of the cheaper versions are dependant on booking online, and booking early. The earlier the better.

Well since your government foolishly gave me citizenship, I'm over there more often. I guess I'll be added to the very long list of 'I'll come next year's.

I have several friends who travel too and from London regularly and they use thetrainline.com and always seem to find relatively cheap fares. Keep in mind that tickets are notably higher on Friday through Sunday, particularly in rush hour times - the trick is to pick around the times to find the cheapest deals.

But yeah, as Leo has said, book early and you'll save yourself a substantial amount of money.
