Default Meet the English?

I'll be in England for much of this winter and spring. My wife will be on temporary assignment in Watford and we will be renting a flat in Hampstead. I'd enjoy meeting forumites during our stay - perhaps meeting some in London and perhaps using others as an excuse for a touristy excursion. Anybody interested?

Hampstead. Now you are talking William. I had an Aunt Uncle
and Cousins who lived at 7 Thurlow Road.
Make sure to visit the "Flask" tavern but be careful about
who you pour your beer (probably Youngs) over.

PS I would love to meet you (01908 322 422)

I'm in Cambridge and would recommend visiting there; 45-minute train ride from central London, and it would be good to meet you.

Don't forget 10metreh.
Fortunately the Chilterns are at the other end of Buckingham
(not to be confused with Effingham)

That's very close. We will be just across High Street, near the corner of Pilgrim's Lane and Denning Road, as you can see on this map:

We should be settled by mid January - I'll discuss meeting plans then.

Perhaps a day trip or a weekend after we are settled. I look forward to arranging schedules and meeting you.

Not the only gay in the village.
Who is going to introduce William to Hampstead Heath?

Perhaps we might all go out for an English?
