For those of you not familiar with this chain it’s a basic pub, with food and a variety of drinks. There’s no dress code - MPU attire is optional!
We’re starting from 6pm onwards
I should be clear, @macsparky is attending - sadly Katie can’t make it (long trip for just an evening!).
Some useful links:
If you’re in need of affordable accommodation close by then I would recommend Goldsmid House, it’s university student accommodation, but better than the easyHotel (at a similar price), mostly because every room has a window.
For transport around London the app Citymapper is very useful. The pub is just outside Victoria station, look for the Wilton Road exits.
Wetherspoons also has an app which allows you to order without visiting the bar. They support Apple Pay in the app and at the bar though, so the choice is yours.
Your nearest Apple Store will be Regent Street which has been refurbished to be a flagship store.
Let’s hope that the signal problems in the Streatham area, which is affecting trains into and out of Victoria station are resolved by Monday. It was chaos yesterday and it’s not a great deal better today by all accounts.
It won’t affect me on the way there but it will affect me getting home - different train lines.
If one of you have more time, visit the Science Museum London - great exhibition: space at the floor-level, old planes at the top, including four flight simulators. And with even more time: National Space Centre in Leicester and Bletchley Park + National Computer Museum (both 40min to 1h by train). Had a great time there one week ago, but too early for the meet up.
