No kids so school and anything related not a factor. Lots of friends in South so that is preferable but happy to look around elsewhere if there's good options.

Penge, maybe Sydenham, East Croydon - Stay Away from West Croydon, Other than that you're looking at Deep SE like Charlton, and those areas.

Cheers, chaps. A few in there that I hadn't considered. Penge, CP and Becks slightly outside my price-range I reckon.

Anyone know much about Bexleyheath, Plumstead and surrounding areas?

Nutbourne on Ransomes Dock has a decent outside space on the dock. Probably booked but worth a try.

Bexleyheath and Plumstead is what I was referring to as Deep South East, out of those two I would prefer Bexleyheath, Plumstead is cheaper but I find it just too far out and excuse the term just Grey and Dingy, you go to live there when hope dies. You're close to Woolwich as well which is quite high on crime.

Down this coming weekend. Anything specific worth checking out. Was wanting to catch van gogh alive but it’s off for a few weeks so was a bit gutted about that. Saturday evening I’m pretty much booked up but Friday and Sunday needing some recommendations food, drinks and any events etc? Last minute as usual but any tips appreciated.

If you're over by the Barbican and need somewhere to eat, can heartily recommend Anglo if you're feeling a bit spendy and you can get a table

Didn't rate this particularly, especially compared to the Eames one a while ago. Have a look at the Guardian review before you go.

If you like vintage stuff the Classic Car Boot as on both days at kings cross and is usually good.

Anyone have, or know of anyone with, a room to rent in Manchester? A mate has just moved up and is struggling to find somewhere.

I’ll eat pretty much anything really not a fussy eater at all. I’ve booked korean dinner party in kingly court for in between theatre and comedy show on Saturday night. Friday I’ve got a night out with some pals at the jazz cafe. I see it’s also london cocktail week (month) so will most likely check out some venues. Was more just if there’s anything must see on this weekend.

Not expecting it to be a highlight of my year but I'm meeting a friend and it should be a bit more interesting than going round the usual east bars.

Also, haven't been to Mercato Metropolitano so interested to see that.
