    I don't have any photo ID, so that rules me out.

    We applied for tickets last week. We have made the decision that even if we don't get tickets we are going down as it will be a once in a lifetime opportunity and have already booked hotel and sorting out train tickets.

    I received an email yesterday to say we had received tickets. Reading the information we were sent it is going to be a really good day.

    Just to give you advance notice a large number of hotels are already booked up in London for that weekend - including some B&B's

    Hotel prices in London that weekend are very expensive - way higher than usual

    We booked the St Giles on Tottenham Court Road for exactly the same price as my sister paid last month (£99 a room).

    When I was looking at hotels such as Premier and Travelodge for example I didn't find them to be any different in price to what I normally have to book them at for work.

    that is for a twin/family room. We had looked at Pax Lodge earlier in the year but were told they wouldn't be able to accommodate us - had hoped to do Pack Holiday at the time.
