I'm going to be staying near Castle and Elephant for 5 weeks in September/October and in order to get off work that long I have to stay in contact with my company here in the states. I'm going to have a laptop with me and I was wondering if anyone knows of any Internet Cafes nearby with good rates. I've been looking on the web, but I'm mostly finding ones far away...
There's one on Tower Bridge Road near Trocette Mansions (junction with Grange Road.) There are also loads within easy access of Elephant, such as Tottenham Court Road, Oxford Street etc. I'd have thought there were bound to be some in the immediate vicinity of Elephant though.
There is a cafe near the Lloyds TSB in Borough high st that has a few pc's in the window, otherwise there are loads of internet cafe/international calling type things in Old kent road, otherwise try any local library.
Show a man how to make fire and he will be warm for hours, set a man on fire and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
I tried going to the JoyNet home page and got a "no such domain" error :( The library may be workable, but I know at least here in the states Libraries usually won't let you plug in your own laptop; they usually have dedicated PCs. Is it different over there? For that matter, will the Internet Cafes let me plug in my own laptop?
I missed the bit about your having a laptop. Will you be staying somewhere that has a phone line? If so, as long as you bring a modem adaptor (our telephone plugs are different to yours) you can just plug and go.
Hmmm. I'm staying in the Driscoll House, and I don't think they have a spare phone line. I guess I can call the Internet Cafes mentioned here and see if I can plug in. I would hate to have to lug everything down to a pay phone :)
I remembered earlier today about the Enternetshop cafe in York Road (between Waterloo station and the London Eye) http://www.enetshops.com - just checked the site and it even says that you can use your own laptop - sounds perfect for you!
