Please suggest locations/activities in central-ish London.

Thanking you for setting up.

Suggestions for activities; a museum late - national gallery / portrait gallery / Tate / V&A would be a low cost way to wander inside, with lots of conversation prompts if we got stuck for conversation...

Or one of the theatre spaces, Barbican / National Theatre /Southbank have loads of spaces to hang...

Doing a dry January, so ideally not a pub for me personally, but if everyone else want to, I'll get a diet coke. I live South East, but will try not to impose my location on others....I can walk!

Ooh, Southbank Centre is a great suggestion! I think they let you take your own food inside to sit at their tables, or you can buy something from their cafe.

I'm not sure about availability yet, but I'd like to join if I can. Maybe a Saturday because of work and the fact that the train tickets are cheaper then. Sunday I tend to be busy with church and post-church socialising.

I'd like to go -- other than preferring weekends to Friday evenings, no specific date is a problem for me.

Thanks for organising. Southbank as a location works for me, close to Waterloo 😊

Although I’m one of the awkward ‘would prefer weekdays’ given I can be in town for work, so after work would be ideal. Getting into town at weekends is rather more tricky given family commitments.

There’s not too many of us voting at this point; how about a midweek and a weekend date??

Always a nightmare trying to herd cats...
I really want to do things other than work... :-)

Although not many of have voted what an unbelievably even spread of results! My first London meet up could be me in London on my own! A possible entry in my journal under "Fun/Funny Things" awaits!

Time is slipping away and I'm off on holiday soon! Could someone else take over? If you want to do a "which weekday" poll, just "Add poll" rather than topic and keep adding options til you have enough then change the number of votes members can cast to equal the number of options in the poll.

As official organiser of the last London meetup ( :) ), can confirm that all you have to do is poll, pick a date and location (that suits you! Hve to be some perks to organising!) and show up with a sign or some kind of identifying item. (And wait anxiously wondering if it's going to be just you!) Minimal effort, maximum Mustache.

I'm similar to this.

Hi all! I just wandered over to the UK boards and discovered this thread. My husband and I just recently moved to London and we'd be interested in joining a meetup!

Welcome! In case it is unclear, we use the UK Tax board for a bit of everything, not just tax.

Thanks D&D. I’ve voted, and I can make one of those dates. Fingers crossed I won’t be Billy no mates...
