    Photographica 18th May 2008 - UK

    Those of you who like the older camera (and the not so old) might be interested in Photographica 2008 which will be taking place Sunday 18th May at the Royal Horticultural Society's Halls in Victoria, central London. You'll find more information here.
    I'll be there, as I'm hoping to get my next fix

    Have been seriously considering this, but it depends on if i can replace my wreck of a car and still have enough money left to buy anything!

    I'm planning on going.

    Also for those North of London types, there's a small camera fair on at Elm Court, Potters Bar this Sunday (13th April). It usually has some good stuff, small entrance fee of £2. Lots of high end collectables and a few boxes of junk you can sometimes find gems in. I found a Brownie No.2 Model B c. turn of the century in almost mint condition and works lovely. Pretty impressive considering it's only made of cardboard. More info on this site http://www.elmcourt.org.uk/ (and i think it's also on the same website as Photographica, just buried in there )

    Well, work have sent me on a training course that week in london, so i think i'd be rude not to go. Hotel is near heathrow...

    Anybody from around the area, I take it i'd be utterly mad to try and drive there. Any suggestions on where would be best to park up and train / tube in?

    Park at your hotel, take the hotel shuttle service to Heathrow, get tube from there?

    [EDIT: OK - I just realised this is a one-day event and is on a Sunday, so take the car! Traffic will be fairly light and parking meters should be free...]

    Overland trains are much faster at getting into central London: 25-30 minutes from Feltham to Waterloo (make sure you go direct, not via Hounslow = 45 mins) for example. Then get the tube from Waterloo. From Feltham you can get a one-day Travelcard after 09:30 or any time weekends (it's valid on local Southeast trains and the tube) which will save a lot. Might be lucky parking in side-streets but don't count on it: there are a couple of pay car parks (about six quid a day I think).

    You might risk the car if going at the weekend (less traffic and no congestion charge) but on Saturdays you will still be faced with high parking charges. Sundays likely to be railworks so I'd say use train if going any day except Sunday and use the car if Sunday...
    Have fun, Bob.

    Its not actually heathrow, its Chertsey, (Which is fairly close to heathrow, but i don't believe theres a shuttle bus. Its also a fairly small hotel)

    I've driven in Birmingham before, but thats about it. I don't tend to barge in too much either. Should I definately have no trouble parking? Were also planning to go shoot some film around the city after, not sure if i'm better just sticking to the tube. But i guess i could just leave the car there...

    Chertsey is quite a way out so you're well outside the reaches of the Tube but there's a railway station in Chertsey which is an hour to Waterloo. From what I remember of the area around the RHS halls there's quite a bit of on-street parking but you'll find the stuff right by the halls themselves occupied by vendors so you'll probably have to park 5 minutes away and walk it.

    David.
