In London, I'd reckon it's going to be x2 normal price, I'mma look for a travel inn etc.
Also, minimum age for staying in a hotel alone without parents?

You're looking at approx £200 for four nights, give or take.

Excellent, I was expecting like £300-£400 so that's pretty good. Thanks for the link, I'll do some quick searching. Wheres the meet point again? Near some train station or something? I'll look at getting a hotel as close as possible for my own convenience purposes. That and the fact that if it's any further I'll get lost.

Top one is cheap and basic which is all I need. I may opt for something a little more expensive and swanky though, we shall see.

Stupid site links don't work. It's called "Belgrave House Hotel" though.
Actually I've just thought. I only need three nights, not four. I'm coming down Friday, leave Monday, so I don't need to book it for the Monday :) Yay! I might be able to afford a slightly better hotel.

use lastminute.com. managed to get 3* twin for 55 quid a week before (surprising seeing how there was a massive event at the O2 literally one tube stop away from it), listed price on the night was 225. basically depends on how close you want to be to the centre. quite close will be pricey. a bit away will be less. travel out to heathrow and you can name your price :-)

Probably around 16, I should imagine.

I would guess 18 actually, dependent on the place. I know a lot of places in the States apparently won't check in anyone <21, so it's probably comparable here. A licensing thing I guess. Check wherever before booking imo

Fortunately living half a train line from London I don't have to worry about this. But most hotels only rent out to people that are 17 in place slike travel lodge, silent inn etc but fancier ones that are a single franchise will go up to 21.

Good advice. I was thinking along the lines that if you could at least pay with a debit card or something (which you have to be 16 to have, last time I checked), then it wouldn't be a problem... but 18 does sound feasible too. I guess you'd just have to check if you really needed to know, like you said.

Are you coming Jon? I think I saw that you had 'expressed interest' last time I saw one of those lists of people attending.

well... if you simply MUST stay somewhere for a night and nobody will take you.. then i suppose you can stay at the flat where me and a bunch of other newgrounders are staying.. mind you that its not going to be 5-star accomidations and you might end up on a couch or floor with blankets. Just make sure you let me know in advance so im not unpleasantly suprised....

In London Meet II i spoiled everyone and rented out two flats but times are hard and its high season so thats not happenin this time.

Heres a photo from the flat from last meet. lmao what a strange picture

Actually I'll set out to not do that...

My friend Exofest and myself were contemplating buying an Angry clock shirt and a Happy clock shirt to match on the day and just screaming "Y HALO THAR!" to the large group of NG fans, but we think we'll just stick with the shirts not the retarded welcome. Or we may buy Weebl shirts for the occassion.

Also from the pictures I've seen of last year is the Namco arcade the one located downstairs/next to the London aquarium with bumper cars at the bottom? Because I have left over tickets from the games and always wanted a to claim 1,000 ticket air rifle or something from there.

Firstly, just to say that i appologize before hand for all the spelling errors and grammar errors, the keyboard i'm on is extremely gunked up and i'm in a rush. ^-^

Glad every one liked the "wall art" idea.

Also, getting spraycans around london can in some ways get tricky , the cheapest place i know is in brixton, although 2 out of four times my friends or i have been there they were robbed, only for the spray cans. (luckily the times i went nothing happened.)
Although i'm sure with a bunch of people, most over the age of 18+ everything will go perfectly fine.... thats if the shop even exists any more.....

Ordering online would proberbly be easier than trecking up to brixton.

Last thing: Laptop: Broken, in repairs. Home computer, without moniter which is also broken.....i'm without access to a computer and am starting to get withdrawal symptons <.< >.>
(although on my nans laptop atm :3 )
