    Coming to London 21-28 August

    Taking a vacation by myself to London in late August. Anyone based around there and wanna meet for a few pints? I'm also looking to nerd out and go to some Antique cricket bookstores or specialist secondhand bookstores. Any recommendations?

    Also, is there any chance I can get tickets for the Oval Ashes test and/or Arsenal vs. Liverpool?

    London is the cesspool of the Universe and shouldn't be used as a destination for a holiday.

    I want to make some day trips outside of London. Any suggestions? A place I can go to for one day and come back to the hotel in London at night.

    Could easily get to Cambridge or Brighton and back in a day. Both quite nice days out.

    It benefits from not being London.

    Cambridge and Oxford and the Cotswolds. The Cotswolds are probably what most outsider imagined the charming English countryside to be while growing up.

    just googled cotswolds, BEAUTIFUL
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Tickets for either of those are probably not available anymore at face value, but probably will be for the right price.
