What ever you do don't sleep, came down from Liverpool one night to see a band and got stuck there. Some scouser followed us around all night trying to mug us... typical. We managed to avoid all the gangs roaming around tho.

Put your money in your sock and stick your iphone up your bum.

You came down from Liverpool to London and a Scouser tried to mug you? See what the big smoke does to people, lived in Liverpool all my life and never had a problem with this, and yes I've lived in Stockbridge Village and Norris Green. Sorry can't help you OP, maybe a B&B?

How big is that rat, by the way, I would be considerably more active than that man, if I found that on me!

Free accommodation in London?

http://media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m6td7dCaOh1r3zat8.gif


Either pay for a hotel (there's loads near Victoria tube) or you could doss at the Trocadero for a bit and then go to the casino, I think they close at 4am and then you could head to McDonalds I'm pretty sure there's a 24 hour one in Picc Circus.
Stay where there are lots of people. See if you can find a police officer or community police etc, and ask for their advice. You will not be the first person or the last that has missed the last bus home.

Be safe...best O luck.

No money for a bus?
@Dixons - the night bus didn't run the route I was headed. I would have needed to head back into central London and even then it didn't go all the way. I figured I was halfway home anyway and then I'd cab it when I reached Wembley as it couldn't be that far to walk. How wrong was I X)

why didnt you call a cab in the first place
If you did want to pay a few quid then look at: London Hostels, you might get a bed for a tenner in a dorm.

Have you ever tried to sleep in a dorm?? I would have to sleep with an eye open!

Because I didn't have enough money. I had £20 to my name and my wages weren't due to hit my account until the following week so even if I had black cabbed it home I had no duggets to pay regardless (would have cost £40/50). Oh the follies of a foolish youth, I was forever overdrawn and living on credit cards.

I actually wanted to do this in Manc a few weeks ago but thought better of it

You still could OP!

If they're half as accommodation as they should be, they'll let you, free grub too.

Yes its worth trying but I dont see it happening

if your a tableghi your almost guranteed but even if your a muslim some mosques wont allow it which is clearly wrong.
Mosques are there in times of hardship not as a stop over coz you missed the last bus or train.

I thought places of worship were all-encompassing.

And then religous zealots complain about atheism.
Interesting that some Mosques may provide accomodation. I have heard that some temples provide a meal. I am not a regular religious follower myself but I have never been aware of the Christian church working in a similar way apart from small sectors like the Sally Army.

If anyone know different please tell. I am now interested to find out.

In response to the general question - free accommodation in London? Are you having a laugh? Havent you heard of London Homelessness? It not totally because they like sleeping au naturel.

Does that help you sleep as well? Thank god I thought i was alone. oO
Homelessness in London is up 36% (oct to dec 2011) God knows what next figures will be like - could you head for nearest soup run and offer to help? At least you'd be safe?
Hope you are OK. How did you get on ?

You should always have sufficient funds on you. Learn from your mistakes. Getting a credit card might help too.
i could have offered you free accomodation OP.
what thank you would i get in return though?

Oi oi

Just for your information: Not sure of Uk but in India every Gurudwara- the sikh place of worship will provide accomodation for the night. In addition they provide free food as well ( called Langar). In the UK where ever there is a substantial Sikh population , the gurudwara will provide free food ( provided there are enough people to partake it).

Yeah sikh's are really top guys, free food, and willing to let you sleep on anything available even if they can't find a mattress for you.

Also stepped in to protect local businesses and residences during the riots, also cool hats
