  • Cycling to Erith we used the Greenwich foot tunnel. Both ways and we encountered no one else. Beautifully​ cooling on a hot and humid day.  more »
  • If you live on the other side of the river in places like Ilford, Stratford, Dagenham or Romford and are out in Woolwich late, then the foot tunnel can be a massive money saver. It will cost around £4...  more »
  • Built in the early twentieth century and opened a couple of years before the Great War it was refurbished and upgraded about four years ago. It's just over 500m long, there is a spiral staircase aroun...  more »

  • Not as clean as the Greenwich tunnel. That ensures that it is not crowded on weekends. Result - Amazing photos..
  • Clean tidy very cool walk on a hot day, has a lift service but dosnt always let you know if both are working which can be a real pain if you get to the other side with a pushchair/wheelchair Loads of stairs to climb..
  • Iconic lifts hardly ever work dirty be very careful at evenings no staff for security
  • Great alternative to using the Woolwich Ferry crossing and it probably is a lot quicker.
  • Because it is better than the ferry. You have to wait a long time for the ferry while you can go through the tunnel

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
