Something like that would be hugely appreciated. It's obviously still early days, but my plan was to arrive on the Thursday (around 3pm) and stick around until the Sunday or possibly Monday. I'm not really all that familiar with any of the users who live in London though.
A list of those I know that have a good mind for London and or are londoners/former londoners:
Harry (Kirk Cocain) - Knows London well enough, good eye for tube map/bus route maps
Me - Former Londoner, impecible ability to always have a tube map handy no matter where we go, terrible at guiding while walking around streets outside of tower hamlets however.
Super Flash Bros - They might not be true londoners, but I believe they work in the city from time to time and they seem to be able to guide groups of 30 around London very well.
Luis: Honourary Londoner, has developed a good knowledge of Zones 1+2 for public transport through experiance of all the meets.
I know there are more, but I can't remember them off the top of my head.
Also, word of advice. Don't listen to anything another Dean might say, especially in regards to certain places to visit. Atleast unless you want to feel lighter in your wallet and brain cells, but heavier in your hang overs and STDs.
This Dean is the infamous 'Condom trick' guy, he turned up to NG London meet 3 completely wasted. He's the life and soul of the 'drinkers' group, but even I can't keep up with that beast. Has a tendancy to wake up in brothels and yet always turn up at impromptue meeting places despite no one knowing him or having his number....
