my plans for MCMExpo are very much uncertain at the moment. But it looks like I may be traveling via car OR train. Definately one of the two!


22 Jan 2011 - 17:2948842

Oh well it's all worth the three days of chaotic fun

Hi There, yeah, October just gone was my first Expo, too. I live in Northampton, get a train to London, then take the Underground and Docklands Light Railway to Custom House Station

You're on the same mainline as me.
How far down the track are ya?
I'm at Northampton, get the 08:06 train, then underground to Bank, and 2 DLR carriages to Custom House.

Train to Liverpool Street.
Circle Line to Tower Gateway.
*walk across the road*
DLR to Custom House.
Simples

Did this first time. Never again. Bank (Circle Line) to Bank (DLR) is about four hundred miles of stairs. And then you have to change on the DLR a couple of times.

o.o i should investigate this coach....maybe it'll be cheaper than a train from Newark xD

Although I live in London my usual route is good for people coming from the South.

SouthWest Trains to Waterloo > Jubilee Line to Canning Town > DLR to Custom House for Excel.

Of course, everything is engineering works permitting (especially on the Jubilee Line and DLR, which I'm sure TFL does on purpose).

I was gonna do Northern from Euston to London Bridge, then Jubilee to Canning Town, but there's a lot more rail to cover.

Bank is one of the city's longest stations though, so to change lines is chaotic. ahaha

If you don't have a lot of luggage and if you can move swiftly, it shouldn't be a problem. Changing from northern to DLR however is a hell of a trek, just move as fast as you can because no-one else will wait for you.

I'm luck yin that I live in Reading, so it's a 20 minute train to Paddington, then I just spend an hour or 2 navigating the underground.

The Circle Line and District are never running though, so I don't think I've ever followed the exact same route in my life, and I think it's mostly luck that I've ever actually gotten to the con itself...
