Londonists – help please
As the others have said – boat most interesting and is covered by a travel card. Otherwise overland train Waterloo East to Greenwich (may have to change at London Bridge) – this slightly slower than jubilee line tube but IMO easier.
Visit Cutty Sark too if you like your boats. Park and Obervatory too. Food market under railway arches at Borough (opposite London Bridge Station) is worth a stop.
If I were you I’d take the boat there and train back. If you are not in a rush on way back get off at London Bridge and walk along river past Borough market, Southwark Cathedral, Golden Hind replica, Shakespears Globe Theatre, Tate Modern, WaterlooPosted 4 years agojoemarshallMember
You can (or used to be able to) buy through tickets on the train to Greenwich too, can be cheaper than going train + underground if you don’t need a travelcard / oyster card for later in the day.
Top tip for London travel by the way, is look at what the next furthest away stations are to where you’re going if the journey looks crazy. In your original post, you thought you’d need DLR, whereas you could do Jubilee and overland, both to Greenwich, which is a tiny walk further.Posted 4 years ago
I am coming into the big smoke tomorrow to go to the National Maritime museum but I am a little confused which is the best way to get there? I will be arriving at waterloo is a thames bus the best way as otherwise it seems i have to get onto the DLR to get to cutty sark,
Which way would a london type do it not a yokel like myself
