I'll be in London from Wednesday 13th until Tuesday 19th for the Worldcon and I'm sure there will be more MeFites there. Is there any desire for a meetup at or near the Con? I'd be available on Wednesday evening or at some point during the con itself.
There is also a Friday Dinner
. This is the planning thread for Saturday Drinks.
I am in town for Wikimania. I have a lot to do but would like to meet MeFites (and/or visiting Wikipedians) for evening drinks/food. Good dates for me are Friday or Saturday evening (8th or 9th) and good location is somewhere near the Barbican Centre which is where I'll be. Who's in? [more inside]
I don’t know about the rest of you, but the recent upheavals around these parts have left me in sore need of several stiff drinks and the company of some like-minded friends. Let's meet at the Crown Tavern on Saturday 31 May to doff our caps and wave goodbye to the inimitable jessamyn, goodnewsfortheinsane and LobsterMitten! [more inside]
I moved to London last year but I have not managed to meet up with any London mefites yet, I feel like it would be fun to go to a pub and meet you guys. Perhaps we can bring board games or card games to play? The Penderel's Oak is a pub(wetherspoons) in the centre that I know is nice and big - would anyone like to have a london mefi meetup there next month?
Edit: OK, 5th of April Then, I will bring a sign with a mefi logo on it and will be there from 7 till whenever. Please bring games if you have them. :)

I'll be in London near Lincoln's Inn Fields next week, from Sunday to noon Thursday. Any London mefites want to meet a mefite from the U.S.? I have no car but a sense of adventure. I'll buy you a pint, of whatever.

plan, but for those who can't make it or know they won't be able to get enough MeFites IRL, come join us on Friday! We are planning on meeting outside the Wellcome Collection
at 1pm, to check out the Superhuman exhibit

Original post: I'll be in London from 27 Sept (Thursday) - 1 Oct (Monday), mostly at the London International Tattoo Convention. I'm open to doing and seeing other things as well...schedule is fairly open. At the very least, let's do a meetup. And if anybody would like to join me at the convention, that'd be great too. Or something else fun. (Updated meetup details within) [more inside]

Hi! I've got this train ticket to London burning a hole in my pocket. It's for Saturday, July 7th and I should arrive around 12:30. What say we do a meetup that day/evening? Who's in and what shall we do?
Update: meetup back to proposed. I still have a train ticket, but can reschedule it for another weekend (granted I make the change by the 7th). Any Londonders wanna meet up?
Per EmpressCallipygos, I'm posting a pre-meetup meetup for those of us who are free during the day to visit the London Canal Museum
and perhaps to stroll the Regents Canal a bit afterwards before catching up with folks dinner and drinks
later on with those of you who have to work. [more inside]
Good Mefites of London: last year when I visited London, and only gave myself three days, I said "I should come back next year and stay a bit longer." This year, I am indeed doing that (from 27 May to 2 June); it has been proposed we start with cocktails here, and then a meal after. [more inside]
I've left it horrendously late, as usual, to see the Chihuly exhibition at the Halcyon Gallery in New Bond Street
, and Saturday is the last day, so I'm definitely going. Would anyone like to join me? [more inside]
I'm in London the first weekend of March. Presumably many of you are in London then too (or always are). Let's meet up! [Specifically: we'll meet at noon on March 4 at Marble Arch - essexjan says it's at the right corner of Hyde Park for Speaker's Corner, and you can't miss it, it's a huge great marble arch in the middle of the road.
As linked in this comment
, we'll head to Richoux afterwards, specifically the one at Mayfair at 41a South Audley Street. Might be sooner rather than later if the talk about rain is truth. [more inside]
How better to fend off the post-Christmas gloom than another bout of pub trivia? We had a great time at the Hat and Tun
last October - it was practically the social event of the season
- and I'd like to do it again, with or without our Redditor nemeses (not that they were our nemeses, AS WE ALL KNOW...). [more inside]
Hi, guys! Well, I'm coming back. HandfulOfDust suggested we organize a meetup, and because HandfulOfDust is awesome, that's just what I'm going to do. [more inside]

Hey, let's do a meetup! I'll be in London all day (and night) this Saturday the 21st. Would love to get out and see/do something interesting.
11 am, let's meet at the lobby/front-desk of the Natural History Museum, take a free visit through the butterfly exhibit and more, and end up at the Windsor Castle in Notting Hill at 5.30pm for food and drinks?
is the first production by the new opera company I've founded, Dioneo
. We'll be staging it at the Cello Factory
near Waterloo, London, on the evenings of April 5, 6, 8 and 9 (but not 7.) It's a one-act opera, about an hour long. We at Dioneo believe that opera should be available to everyone, so we've priced tickets at only £12. The venue is intimate and only seats 60, so advance booking is recommended. You can book online here. [more inside]
I'll be playing some of my songs from albums new, old and as yet unrecorded at the lovely Phibbers bar on the Holloway Road, and it would be lovely to combine that with a drink with some fellow Mefites. The music is sort of bluesy folk-rock - you can have a listen here
to see if it's your kind of thing. Other acts on the bill TBC - it's 3 on the door and I'll be playing a half hour set from 8.30pm.
The wife and I will be in England, Wales and Ireland over the last 2 weeks of 2010, and would love
to catch-up with old friends and make some new ones. However, our schedule is rather tight, so we hope folks will be okay with our selecting the date, while you lot pick a place to make merry. [more inside]

Hi Mefites -- Mrs. Dream and I will be in London on vacation later this month. Anyone interested in a Sunday meetup on October 24th?
Let's meet at Walkers of Whitehall
at 1pm for lunch and drinks, then walk down to Churchill's War Room
, which is open until 6pm. Get as drunk as you like in honor of Churchill.
I'll set up a MeFi sign on the table at Walkers. I'll update later with a phone number if I'm successful in jailbreaking my iphone and getting a SIM card.
Metafiltrians of London, I will be in the capital on the evening of the 21st: does anyone fancy a wee meetup? I haven't yet sorted out accommodation and so forth, but I expect I'll be somewhere in the approximate vicinity of Imperial College. If people are up for it and know a good place to go nearby, please suggest it; I barely know London at all, so I'm relying on youse for ideas. I wasn't thinking of anything big, probably just drinks and maybe a meal. Hopefully see you in a week or so's time!
A long, drawn out nightmare with my visa is finally all sorted out and I'll be in London from the 15th-17th! If you're not too meetup'ed out, please come have a celebratory drink with me. Looking forward to it (you have no idea how much)! [more inside]
I just moved to London for grad school. Anyone up for a pint? [more inside]
