Yo I’m new, have not been to a lot of places. But I am starting to get into it, as i always have wanted to. So of course, I do not know many places. I would hope if i could get a head start or something? Totally trustworthy. Friend and I just want an adventure. Im looking for london/surrey areas. I’ll be sure to to make reports and give locations when I’m more knowledgeable with them.

Welcome along. People will be more willing to help you out once they know and can see what you are about. So I'd recommend sticking a few reports up.

You can always use the search bar too. There our thousands of location reports for you to browse. Especially in Surrey. :thumb

Thank you, we are going along somewhere today but turned out it is not in use anymore so its pretty difficult to report on that and finding places near me as most are either demolished or the feds have got to them. But i’ll keep searching until i find one !

Just keep looking. There is plenty kicking about. You'll find something.
Looking forward to seeing some reports from you in the future. ;)

"It turned out it's not in use anymore" ?

Surely that's ideal?

Honestly, all that advice about finding locations looks great and stuff, but there is absolutely no substitute for getting out and about and looking for stuff.

If you're struggling with that or just need to get your feet into somewhere to kick start, just searxj your local town/city/village on this forum and try visit somewhere that has already been reported on.

I mean that you cannot explore it due to it being turned into something so went there a little too late sorry for the confusion. Will do!
