    I've used this, and am now booked in at:

    http://campingatthegames.com/eton-ma...n-east-london/

    For seventeen nights. Christ, I've never camped for that long. I think one of my spare days I'll have to nip back to Cambridge for a proper shower and sleep, ha!

    Also going to buy a nice big tent, just for me, and a good sized comfortable camp bed. None of these stupid inflatable things
