    Over the first weekend of December (3rd - 4th) - so it's not too close to fireworks or new year - I was wondering how people might fancy booking an apartment or two as near to central London as possible then...

    Saturday: sights + museums day, Winter Wonderland from 3:00pm (meet at the entrance or across the road from Hyde Park Corner tube station), bars til late
    Sunday: rides during the day whilst it's quiet (10am to lunch maybe?), a bit more sightseeing then home early evening




    With Olympia Looping making its first appearance in the UK in history to help mark the event's 10th anniversary, it seems this year it's going to be the biggest and best event yet! There's also Wilde Maus XXL, the Hangover (tallest travelling drop tower on the planet), a plethora of white knuckle flats and all the beer, pretzels, waffles, smoked salmon, mulled wine, bratwurst, booze and sweets you could ever need! :p


    Naturally any soche wouldn't be complete without a few drinks, so for bars:
    Sky Garden's Sky Pod Bar - possibly the best bar with a view in the city
    Mr Fogg's (any) or Seymour's Parlour - something old-fashioned / something actually old fashioned
    Queen of Hoxton - rooftop garden with live music
    Beaver Lodge - old American ranch-themed
    Brooklyn Bowl London - bowling and booze
    Po Na Na or Beduin - Moroccan-themed
    Bavarian Beer House or Bodo's Schloss - because German bier
    Kona Kai - tiki-themed
    The Escapologist - themed to the HQ of a secret ancient order, haha!

    I'll be there, probably not for the whole thing but definitely at some point. Might as well make my first ride of the year a Schwarzkopf!

    Unfortunately I'm working overnights throughout the winter (22:00-10:00) including those dates. However, I may be able to show my face before work. Depends how knackering they turn out to be! (I won't know 'til they start).

    Don't let this inlfuence your choise of date though, I will no doubt be visiting multiple times when I can squeeze it in. ;)

    I'm definitely interested in this, especially if it's the last weekend of November. I obviously don't need accomodation and all that stuff :p Can't 100% confirm though until you release the details Machin :)

    Turns out it's our annual team visit to Tenby the following week, so I probably won't be able to make it after all.

    Ah nuts! :(

    Btw I see a few want it just over the weekend so specific meeting times in the fair will be put up once we know for sure who'll be there. :)

    I'm interested in just Winter Wonderland. (Doubt I'll be able to afford much else!)
