    I guess it is raining on your parade, but when it comes to staying in London, the only place to stay is Romford in east London. It’s the centre of all things ‘happening’ in east London. There’s the market, numerous entertainment venues & eateries, & hundreds of shops. It’s pretty straight forward to get to via car or public transport, & there’s a healthy amount of hotel space if you wanna stay a while.
    But east London’s a bullet-riddled dustbin you might say. Fear not, Romford has designer body armour makers BladeRunner & a state of the art hospital (Queen’s), more cameras than a TV studio, & the highest concentration of London’s finest to be found anywhere in the city camped out in South Street of an evening. Believe me, murder has become something of a rarity nowadays, so your chances of getting home alive have increased noticeably.
