totally agree Olympics unlike the Rugby (six nations which i follow Football cheltenham races or the Ryder Cup which i worked in cardiff when it was on and it was mentally busy cos it got rained off literally and there were loads of rich americans canadians and irish guys plus the welsh guys with fuck all to do over the weekend The olympics don't have that element its often aimed at families
and there will be lots of things going on in between as well i did read of girls planning to up there prices but i don't think it will work
I'm visiting london on the 22nd -25th ( can i say that without being accused of being of touting please
100quid for the hour ) and I'm leaving before it all kicks off hotels have tripled there prices from the 27th onwards if you can get one and its simply not worth it unless you live in london and have your own place in london
5 pounds for a bottle of water i would rather drink piss
I'm sure it has been said elsewhere, but the Olympics will not be anywhere near as lucrative as a football or rugby World Cup where you have huge numbers of MEN arriving in town.
I can't imagine there are that many groups of guys (just guys) planning 2-3 week long trips to London. Without them, I would think it will be pretty much business as usual.
I definitely will not pay over the odds. Probably will avoid London altogether as everything else will be a rip-off!
