    6 weeks? Wow thats ages. Do you want to be exploring London the whole time? Or are you going to take overnight excursions other places?

    From what I’ve heard a lot of ppl stay at the Generator Hostel in London, its pretty cheap (could be as cheap as 10 pounds a night in winter)

    If you weren’t desperate to be in London the whole time, I’d investigate staying other places for short periods (more likely to be cheaper accomodation outside London). For example, take a few days and stay in Bath and visit the Stonehenge and the surrounding area.

    Im staying in the UK almost 2 months after my tour and 2 weeks before. Lucky for me I have relo’s over there, but they live about 2 hours out of London so its a bit of a trek.
    I’ve been looking at different hostels in London and in the Winter you can pay as little as 9 pounds for a 12 bed doorm. I think this was the Hyde Park Inn.
