Could any one tell me what route to tell a black cab driver to get to st.pancras at mid-day tomorrow? not sure what routes are closed, but booked 2 cheap tickets on the train that can not be altered! where's Tom when I need him!
Patience ma petite, je suis ici maintenant.
Sorry Jan, been spending too much time in God's country across La Manche of late.
If I've got it right, you live somewhere near the Brick.
I've been out of "The Game" for almost 3 years now, so if there are road closures and alterations that I'm unaware of, I'm sorry, plus I never worked a Saturday when the Lord Mayor's Show was on.
I'd swerve Tower Bridge, due to the madding crowd trying to see the poppies at the Tower.
I'd go for Waterloo Bridge
, straight up Kingsway, Woburn Place, Russell Square, Bedford Way, Tavistock Square, Tavistock Place, thread my way around the chicane to Cartwright Gardens, R. into Euston Road, L. into Pancras Road, and drop off on the left.
To reiterate, if the road configuration has drastically changed since I was out there struggling for a crust, then I apologise, I'm doing this from memory.
