    I think they tidied it up quite a bit begot the 2012 Olympics but I've not been in that area since then.

    Best to stick to central London zones 1 and 2. Lots to do there.

    I'm not sure any more. My all time favourite arcade at the Trocadero centre that was original Segaworld closed a while back. There's one called Heart of Gaming but I've not been there.

    You might want to visit Crazy Thumbs in South West London, which is a big retro place.

    Games and Gadgets in South East London too.

    There used to be a huge retro gaming store in Central London. I forget the name but can't find it when I google so it might be gone now. It was the oldest computer store in the UK. But it was in Tottenham court road and that's where most computer and video game stores are.

    From what I remember of the place , they would have to clean it up a LOT , and I mean a hell of a lot, for it not to be shit.

    It's a shame such short notice & your Birthday is mid week. - We could have squeezed a weekend in ourselves for a break. Deb & I celebrate 25 years on the 19th & we're considering all sorts of events to remember it by.
    OMG at the prices for some of the suites at your Hotel. 7.4K for the Jaguar Suite.

    That does look a great hotel but those prices are quite mad. Cheapest I could see was £890 pn.

    I wouldn't pay that for a week!

    You need the money first though.
