    Which one? There's a Hub called Westminster Abbey and another called Westminster St. James Park… both the same price at the moment, both about the same distance

    Ah, wait - the St. James one is more expensive, they just show the lower price on the map… I've taken a punt on the Abbey

    Yep - I've booked the wrong one before. St James does proper breakfast, but you can walk round the corner I've booked Westminster Abbey.

    What's wrong with the breakfast at the Abbey one?

    EDIT: ah, looks like those Hub places only do the Continental breakfast, or "no breakfast at all" as it's more correctly known. Booking amended

    St James does a reasonable breakfast. It's help yourself, but includes bacon, sausage, egg, beans

    What are these things really like, meeting people you've never met in real life? Is there an easy escape root if Assguru or Dumstick turn up?

    That's more like it, but as the in-crowd is going to be at the Abbey, I've booked there

    I can always wander over to the Regency Café if needs be
