    Requested the Fri and Mon off.

    I need dis. Dis will be my happy place until next UKAS.

    So, what's in Edinburgh around the venue and stuffs? When my bum hurts from sitting, is there sites to see and pubs for me to drink at when I can't watch a film y'all want to and shiz? :D

    All of the above as long as you don't want to eat after about 9pm because Scotland essentially shuts down all its food places for some weird reason....

    That seems to be an Edinburgh specific thing, Glasgow, Aberdeen and Inverness have places open til 3. Blame the Council is the best option.

    Yeah, all the places shutting so early is an Edinburgh thing that even I don't understand.
    I finish work at 8 every night and the food places in Glasgow are still packed full of people

    I'm fine with food places shutting by then as ya aint supposed to eat after 7/8 anyway like.

    I'm in Dundee in 2 weeks! At that Forbes of Kingennie place for a weekend wedding with a day trip at St Andrews. Well more like 2 hours sightseeing there before noms and coming back to Forbes.

    Whats October weather like in Edinburgh? Seb, being a Manc will I cope with it? lol. I wanted to dress themed at times but if I'm gonna die of cold, nope :p

    So is SLA just like a Cinema that plays anime?

    Eh, I don't think you'll struggle too much for food after 8; so long as you're fine with pub food, anyway. The cinema is pretty much in the dead centre of Edinburgh too so I don't think it would be too hard to find something good. If worst comes to worst, there is a McDonalds fairly close by that's open until 4 or 5 if that suits your fancy haha

    The cinema is just you're standard independent cinema to be honest: a couple of screens, an overpriced bar, etc. However, they give away all their used film posters which is pretty cool. They have a really nice Akira film poster that I'm hoping to snag if they ever take it down haha. Anyway, I would describe SLA itself as a mini film festival for anime.

    Lastly, if you are heading through to St Andrews try and go when it's sunny or, at the very least, not when it's raining! Even that might be asking a bit too much from the weather but most of the appeal of the place comes from its beaches and outdoors in my opinion.

    We only get about 3 hours in St Andrews before we go for food at a pub then a coach back, the Bell something I think? But it's still a bit of a holiday for me for sure.

    What's taxi costs like up there please?

    It's a 20 min, 8 mile-ish drive from Dundee train station to wedding venue so I'm going to have to taxi, twice, during my time there. Wondering if it's extortion up there as that would only cost about £15 down here. (used to saying up here, omg hehe).

    Thanks for the PM J.Akorah :) (didnt want these lot thinking you've blanked me hehe :p)

    Don't think we have any update on accommodation yet. Once we know what the room situation is, I'll pick my ££ sleeping option seeing as me no want any sofa bed in case I get cursed by migraines again. God knows I can't stay up until we ALL go to sleep :p

    To be fair the sofa bed was real comfy last year though for preference is rather noone had to have one - I like somewhere comfy to sit whilst I wait for everyone else to get up for breakfast!

    For definite. Though better if we can. Same range of price. Same area. Maybe even the same block. See what happens. Just not had a chance to look yet
