    Hi

    I am trying to organise a "Stag do" down in london

    Amongst other things, we are planning to go to a ten pin bowling alley in the centre of London.

    Anyone know any located close to Tower Bridge? Looking for a fairly cheap bog standard one (not like Namco near London eye who want £520 for block booking!)

    Also, for some of the guys, money is tight (we are scots after all!) any ideas for reasonably cheap sightseeing, things to do? etc

    Cheap sightseeing involves walking around Parliament, Buck House, Picadilly etc etc....
    Doesn't cost anything.

    As for bowling near tower bridge, off the top of my head cxan't think of anything closer than elephant and castle megabowl or whatever it's called:

    The one at russell square is good too, not too far away:

    If you're here on a tuesday or thursday, you can go to the dogs in walthamstow and it's only a quid each to get in.......

    I'll try and come up with some stuff later.
    What time of year are you going to be there, so as to find indoor/outdoor interests or activities?

    Just bring a large quantity of Bucky with you and install yourselves in a carriage of the Northern line for the night! ;)

    There is a lovely Scottish community near Euston Station. Just bring plenty of Special and a big coat, it's cold in that little park!

    So she thinks London/Essex girls have a better reputation than the gals in Amsterdam, does she? ;)
