Hi, more help required please.
I am staying in the Travelodge Docklands, I think East India DLR is the nearest station. What is the best way to get there?
I have had a look at the journey planner and seems to involve trains and buses and looks a bit complicated.... Appreciate any advice
According to map you get the DLR at East India, then change at Poplar for DLR stop at Greenwich. It is about 1.5 miles to Blackheath, but I am sure there will be a lot of company on the way!! There might be a slightly shorter route, but panic not, the journey will not be as complicated as it seems, and once you are actually at the hotel I am sure you will be able to get plenty of advice re travel. Good luck.
I'm staying at Travel Inn at Becton at the end of the DLR - normally get the DLR aroun 7.15, up to Poplar, get off and get DLR back to Blackheath along with hundreds of others.
Then , depening on your start , depends which station you get off at - but its crystal clear in terms of signposts, marshalls etc...
Just leave plenty of time, better there early than late eh ?
Vicky, i've stayed twice at the docklands travelodge.Like BBB says get off early enough & there's no problem. There's plenty of runners leaving from the hotel so there's little chance of getting the wrong train, It's about a mile walk to the start though, so it is worth starting out early. Good choice of hotel.
All the best .
Thanks for everyones advice looks like it should be fairly straightforward.
Can anyone suggest anywhere to eat the night before? I have had a look for somewhere that sells pasta but could not really find anywhere nearish. Canary Wharf had a few places but did not look like they opened on Saturday.I have the added problem that my friend wants to watch the West Brom game at 5.20...
