When the tube goes on strike in London the transport system, which usually runs like a well oiled clock, becomes really congested and people start to flap. Buses and trains get packed and people push and shove. It's exactly what I wanted on a Tuesday morning going to work. Thanks TFL
I do have one thing to say about over crowded trains and buses - people need to clean their teeth in the morning and swish some mouth wash around their mouth before they leave as standing so close to people who all have morning breath makes me want to hide in my coat until I get off and into clean air.
Shaftsbury avenue was grid locked with traffic this evening and buses were packed with people. No one was going anywhere fast.
Charing cross at 6pm on Wednesday is never usually as packed as this people see the board look at their train and go to it. Travel chaos.
I was lucky enough to arrive at the station with very little waiting time for departure.
I did see some horse riders out in Central London this morning and you never usually see them, a nice little change.
Furthering this I saw Charing cross underground station was completely closed on Thursday
