How long does it take to reach Central London? And what are the best modes of transport? Read on for more details.
DLR and National Rail
Living in Woolwich you have the option of two train stations. Woolwich Arsenal sits on the DLR and National Rail. This reliable East London connection gets you into Bank in 28 minutes, Oxford Circus in 40 minutes, while Embankment takes 36 minutes.
If you want to reach the City, then Woolwich Dockyard station is the one for you. This zone 3 station gets you to Cannon Street in 34 minutes.
What better way to commute to work in the capital than to cruise in by boat? The Thames Clipper offers a speedy and reliable service from Woolwich all the way to London Bridge in just 29 minutes.
The beauty of the journey is that it’s serene (compared with the tube, it’s like doing tai chi vs. wrestling), and has a variety of drop-off points. You have the choice of getting off at Greenwich, Blackfriars, Embankment, Waterloo, Westminster and more.
Prices are a little more expensive than the tube. An all zones single with an Oyster is £7.20, however travel cards can be purchased.
Fancy a weekend getaway on the continent? Travel frequently for work? Then this is where things really get interesting.
Forget over-priced airport parking or pulling in favours from friends and relatives, London City Airport is situated just six minutes away on the DLR. Yes, before you ask, you heard correctly.
If you like to escape the city for a spot of fresh air, then you can reach the South East with ease.
Jump in your car and you’ll hit the M25 within 25 minutes. You can also reach Royal Tunbridge Wells in little over an hour, Sevenoakes in 44 minutes and the Kent coast within 45 minutes. It’s perfectly situated for those weekend’s away.
