PostSubject: Official 50th Anniversary Convention London   Sun 28 Apr 2013 - 16:42

So we have been planning to go to London for the anniversary. This has been discussed with my friends and family for a few years now. Well, it is a reality. After the announcement made that there will be an official convention over the anniversary weekend, we have been excitedly planning how to get there, how long, etc. This week we purchased our tickets for flight and hotel for my younger brother, my oldest son, and I. We will be staying at a hotel closest to the convention center. By the way, it's located at Canary Wharf!!!! cheers

So now we are getting our passport applications in order and eagerly await the convention tickets to be made available for purchase! I just need advice as I have not been to London since 1991 and that was summer. I need info from UK residents regarding appropriate clothing for that time of year, information regarding travel from London to Cardiff for the Doctor Who experience, and recommended Must See places in London. Trafalgar Square, the Tower, and the Eye are definites. Maybe a picture at the steps of St. Paul's. Someone recommended a tour to Warwick(?) Castle. Any and all info is appreciated.

Well I don't live in London so I wouldn't be very good at recommending tourist destinations (however, I can recommend Warwick castle), but I can definitely tell you that you'll want to take some jumpers, coats, hats, scarves and gloves - especially if this winter is anything like the one that just passed.

I'd really like to attend, too, but I'm not sure I'd be able to. Hope you have fun though! Take pictures, too! Very Happy

Scary- pictures are a definite must. I think my son's and my scarf will be good. I have an 18 ft Tom Baker scarf and his is 9 ft. So we're set there. Smile

I say check the weather forecast the week before and you should be fine.

Wish I could go to ole blitey for the anniversary. Get the young 'un a Tardis journal and have him write down all his Who experiences this year and then of course during the trip so he can tell your grandchildren one day.
