I am moving to Shad Thames (ok, actually Bermondsey, just next to the Design museum) shortly and was wondering what the best transport links to the West End are. Are there any buses??? I know that there is Bermondsey tube station not too far away, but I was wondering if there are any nicer alternatives...
Agreed, the Jubilee Line is certainly convenient, but I'm a friend of bus travel (and also do cycle btw).
Anyway, thanks for the feedback Sputnik and I will certainly be trying the RV1 service one of these days.
The RV1 does indeed run from there to Covent Garden, but takes very long. Better to walk to Tower Bridge Road and take Bus 1 or 188. Bus 1 is to be preffered as the 188 changes driver often at Waterloo which causes delays. But cycling is indeed best option: not more than 15 minutes..otherwise tube from Tower Hill to Embankment.
