Not much of a tour seeing as they are in London 5 times. Shame nobody ever really ventures down to the South West where I live.

Sadly nothing in Edinburgh. I suppose Glasgow is quite close so thats a viable option. Could be good fun if I can convince a friend to come along. Thanks for the heads up :)

Why doesn't the south west ever get a tour or a visit?! We buy games too!! Bristol should be included more - I would travel up to Bristol.
