I would usually get Megabus. That tends to be the cheapest way to travel and London's such a major city, there'll be routes to/from most other big cities.
Bez, I owe you something nice for that. I would never have guessed the bus would be as cheap as it turned out to be, and although it's still a 6 hour journey by bus, it costs just £14 to get from here to London and back. That's almost ten times less than the train, for a trip that's just a third longer. Even with taxis to and from the station, it's still a hell of a lot cheaper than my first attempt at going to London. Woot!

I'll probably have a flat this year, but considering the high turnout, i'll probably like have whoever wants a bed to pay 30quid a night or something.
That's actually a brilliant idea. I'd happily pay that considering the hotel I got last year was twice as much, and the room wasn't much better than the flat you had anyway (in retrospect, I should've asked for a place in it). Between you and Bez, you've just practically removed the single biggest thing stopping me going this time. ^_____^
Call it a quirk, but if I spend more time getting to / from somewhere than I spend actually in it, I tend to feel stupid and kick myself later on. This basically means I'm gonna be there for more than 2 days (IF I'm there, that is, but that's now looking a lot more likely than it was if this bed-rental thing goes ahead), so I'm gonna need somewhere to sleep anyways.
