Travel different – London6

Part of the relativity new London overground travels from North London to Surrey Quays in East London. Actually some of the overground is underground – in fact under water through the oldest tunnel under a navigable river, the Thames Tunnel.
From Surrey Quays station it’s a short walk to Greenfields pier.  One of the frequent Thames clippers ferries to the London eye, a very pleasant half an hour, 10 kilometre ride despite the gloomy dark sky and the choppy water. For £6.00 (cheaper with an Oyster card) these clippers will take you from Woolwich to the London Eye passing under several bridges including London and Tower bridges and the infamous Millennium footbridge (pictured here) stopping at several points in between. A really inexpensive way to travel and see the some of the sights of London.
