After a long discussion at our rail station, Steve and I decided we would follow in the footsteps of last year, and go the Wapping Route to get to the Tobacco Docks for EGX Rezzed. However, in what is quickly becoming Rezzed tradition, a certain London and south eastern railway region operator caused us to miss our first train to Wapping due to travelling at the speed of molasses for a very painful twenty minutes inching through South London, but we got there in the end. And I know I complain about this every year, but the signage at Wapping station for the event could have been better (or even, any kind of signage to point you in the right direction upon leaving the station) – although at least getting to the Tobacco Dock is virtually a straight line down Wapping Lane!

Well, this year, myself and Steve decided not to go the Shadwell DLR route in order to get to the event (probably because we missed… our Lewisham train), and so ended up having to go into Central London and back out from there – however, despite it requiring two changes and getting off at Wapping rather than Shadwell DLR, the journey was comparable to what we’ve done before. Slightly quicker, possibly, this time we were there before 10am. However, we (once again) had the same problem with regards to signage – once out at Wapping station, there was nothing to direct you to the event. However, as it was literally a straight path down Wapping Lane, almost, it was fairly easy.

Occasionally I skim through the long list of emails I receive from signing up to the Science Museum’s mailing list, and even more occasionally, there’s something particularly interesting which crops up at the museum.

Today, myself and Steve went to the London Gaming Market’s first opening day. The London Gaming Market was held in the Royal National Hotel in Russell Square. We found it easy to get to from London Bridge, with there being both the Russell Square Underground station and several bus routes which stop nearby in Tavistock Square. We both think the location was fairly easy to find walking from Tavistock Square.

Both myself and Steve arrived at the Tobacco Dock at 11am, ready for the event, surrounded by excited gamers. One thing I could say is that maybe the event organisers could have found a better way to sign post the event – we had a bit of searching to do when we got to Shadwell DLR!
