On way home from IKEA Edmonton tonight we noted that there are roadworks planned for Blackwall tunnel, that the Woolwich ferry is down to one service (they say broken ferry, I say people skiiving off for Bank Hol weekend), roadworks on the A12 and huge tailbacks on the Dartford tunnel approach.
So this weekend, we won't be travelling anywhere by car.
I must admit that I would rather do the Dartford route as you don't get the utter rudeness of drivers seen on the Blackwall tunnel approach. But by far the best way to come is via London bridges. As long as you are happy to wait until the congestion charge doesn't apply and prepared to brake every now and again for a jaywalking tourist.
Even better, I wish I could get a lift off one of them Chinooks that are always flying ahead. That would be cool.
