If I waned to go travelling in Europe for say 3 months.

How much money would I need?

Assuming living at a pretty basic level, anyone got a rough guesstimate?

    Double what you'd think. Otherwise you'll run out for sure. Are you going to be working at all? If not about 4 grand I reckon.

    It depends upon where you go in Europe, for Eastern Europe, Spain and Portugal are generally cheaper than, for instance, Iceland and Scandinavia.

    It also depends upon what level of comfort you desire; what food you wish to eat (restaurants/street food); how you will be travelling between places; the season(s) in which you will be travelling; whether you hire a car to visit the least accessible and the inaccessible places; what (if any) activities you wish to undertake; whether you drink alcohol; and what (if any) entertainment you desire. There are, of course, many more considerations, so have a think.

    Assuming that you were visiting countries in different areas of Europe and that you were not looking for excessive comfort, you could budget for an average of, say, £20-£35 per day. In Eastern Europe this could be reduced further.
