can some one please provide me with some hotels in London which are not quite expensive!

Should go on the Shorditch pub crawl - use the code steve2014 and get cheaper entry and free shots 


I agree with Dave; London has it all. There is an online journal with that title which is worth a read and a new London blog called party ideas london. London is also becoming the film capital of the world as all the blockbusters are being made here, albeit on the outskirts of London where the studios are located.
