I have had two enquiries from friends of this site, both of whom live outside of the UK, both asking for help in terms of their visits. I’m more than happy to pass on the questions.
If you have any thoughts can you put them below in the usual way?
First Jay Javari has written to say,
“I’m going to be visiting London (my first time!) this June & was hoping you’d be able to help me with a few things like budget accommodation (2 couples), Arsenal-friendly pubs, places of interest for an Arsenal supporter (besides the stadiums of course)”.
Anyone want to do any recommendations?
Second, Walter Broeckx (who you will of course know) is coming to the final game of the season on a Sunday (there will be the usual Untold Arsenal editorial meeting after the game) and is thinking of changing his previous approach of driving into London, and instead parking the car somewhere to the south and then taking public transport.
He’s coming into Folkestone – so its the question of what to do at the end of the M20. Drive to Greenwich, under the river, through the Isle of Dogs and turn left at Hackney? Park at Woolwich and get the DLR?
As I live to the north of London, and never lived south of the river, I only know about coming in and parking from the north, but when, way back in the last century, I was a student in Brighton, I used to drive up and park near a Northern Line station and get the tube.
Walter’s GPS system is suggesting coming to Woolwich and taking the Dockland’s Light Railway which seems viable, although a fairly long journey in time.
All thoughts and suggestions welcome, and if I have got any of the details wrong, Jay and Walter will correct them I’m sure.
PS: Walter, for the summer break how about the story that the bones of Elvis were discovered under the railway track when the Ems was being built, and he was reburied under the centre circle? Or should I just give that one to the Star?)
