    London accomodation for the Fianl

    im just looking for some advice re accomodation in london for the final.

    7 of us have got the flights booked, got the tickets and have provisionally booked accomodation in hounslow. some are flying to heathrow and the rest to gatwick.

    would it make more sense to stay in london city centre, if that was possible or would Hounslow be a good spot anyway.



    i definitely need a drink before the day is out. apologies for the typo, the heading should of course be the final

    sorry folks, been a long week



      Stay in the city centre

      It happened, and I was there.

      What does grease taste like? Is it like chicken?


        Strand Palace Hotel is decent, its on Strand (funnily enough!), very central, near Embankment tube station



          There's loads of fairly decently priced (for London) hotels near the Victoria Train/Tube and Coach stations.
          Travel options to Twickers from there include District Line tube to Richmond then local bus from there.
          Also fairly handy to get into the West End via the Victoria line tube to Green Park.

          edit: Use a hotel search site such as ( ?) to find the hotels names/contact details and call them direct for advance bookings.

            To be honest, I wouldn't stay in the centre. You won't know there's a match on there.

            Twickenham/Richmond is your best bet if you want a rugby weekend.
