Thursday 30th October Saw myself and a couple of friends out for the day on a One Day Travelcard (Zones 1 – 6) at a cost if £7.00.
We met at the London and Rye at 9.00 am to ‘plan’ the day and have a nice cooked breakfast to start us off. From Catford we took a 208 to Lewisham and joined the DLR with the intention of getting off at Cannery Wharf but had to get off earlier due to a broken down tin an walk to the underground station where we too the Jubilee line to Canning Town. From Here we took the DLR again to Royal Albert where we watched some planes landing and taking off from London City Airport.
From there its was back to Canning town to change on to another DLR train to King George the V where we went across the river to Woolwich via the Woolwich Foot Tunnel and then back on the Woolwich Ferry. From here it was back to the DLR and a quick trip to Limehouse where we changed onto a train to Barking. At barling we stopped for lunch at the. Afer a well erned meal and rest we then took the C2C back to Fenchurch Street. A quick stop off at Tower Bridge to see it open for a sailing craft and then on to the Route 15 Heritage Bus.
We travelled from Tower Bridge to Trafalgar Square on an old Routemaster RM2050 and then took Pictures of it. From Trafalgar Square we walked to Charring Cross and took a train to London Bridge where we went for a walk round Borough Market and then a stop off at the Whetshief for a pint. Then on to the last leg of the day out. London Bridge to East Croydon, where we took a Tram to West Croydon and a stop for dinner at the Ship of Fools.
