    I'm off to do a new music video in London in a few weeks with Daddy Freddy and Blackout JA.

    We are driving in from sunny Bristol and am meeting Daddy Freddy at his residence in London E1. Not sure exactly where as that's all i know but we shall be filming around the E1 area also.

    Anyone know much about the area, what will the parking situation be? is there a city tax we will have to pay in E1? Will i get shot by a 14yo chav?

    TIA...

    If only you knew someone from East London..

    It is inside the congestion charge area.

    Everything is twice the price you're used to.

    It used to be a bit stabby around there but I think it's hipster land now.

    Cheers Geeeeza.

    What's the congestion charge roughly? I take it it's per car not per person in the car?

    Is parking likely to be expensive, or even possible?

    Might do train if the parking is extortionate.

    Meh. Ignore the nay-sayers. My lovely, cuddly, altruistic bank is based in E1W so I know the area reasonably well. It's outside the congestion area, which starts at Tower Bridge, so stay out and you'll be fine. Free parking can be a pain in places, but there's plenty of car parks and they're not stupid money like Westminster. E1 is alright, in fact a bit gentrified.

    What concerns me more is that you're telling all and sundry that you're coming to London and meeting up with a man called 'Daddy Freddy' who wants to film you.

    It's fine he's got an up to date DBS certificate...

    Daddy Freddy is big deal for us, he''s had numerous top 10 hits in Jamaica and has also worked with some big UK names. He's nearly 55 now so semi retired and just doing things for really cool artists like us...

    I thought the congestion charge zone covered there now?

    Sorry GM seems my info isn't on point.. if you drive through the city to get there you'll need to pay the charge, unless it's the weekend. But M25 / A13 is probably your best route depending on timing.

    It's a Saturday, is the congestion charge only for weekdays then?

    I've not been to London since about 1995

    Yeah, no charge on a Saturday and the (relatively) quiet day on the roads in the city too so you can just follow the M4/A4 straight in and see the big buildings and shit.. if you want to..

    Have some good news:

    http://filmlondon.org.uk/get-permission-film

    When you don't need permission to film

    If you are a small crew — five people or fewer — using a handheld camera and your filming will not cause an obstruction then there is no restriction to filming on London’s public highway. In some boroughs this also extends to small crews with a tripod. No licence or any form of official permission is required.

    Common law rights allow users of public highways to “pass and re-pass ... and to make reasonable use of it”. Section 137 of the Highways Act 1980 restricts these rights where the use of the highway causes an “obstruction” to other users rights of free passage. If you are considered to be causing an obstruction then there is a risk that you will be stopped from filming.

    If you think you are likely to cause an obstruction then you need to apply to film via the appropriate Local Authority, however we strongly recommend that you always inform the relevant Borough Film Service if you are filming on their streets. If the local authority is not aware that you will be filming in the area then you can be asked to stop. If a member of the public complains and you don't have permission to film, then you may be asked to move on by police. Some Local Authorities provide Notices of No Objection for small crew filming.

    Not sure if you'll be entering the LEZ though, so that's worth checking as (IIRC) it's 24/7.

    If you're doing that (and, TBH I don't know what the term exactly means*), there are probably other laws to consider
