Lived in East London for twelve years, for those of you planning to drink in the west and then head to Stratford check the transport for London website site carefully. 1. London transport is good when it works but can go down quite quickly and you may need a plan B 2. It takes a surprisingly long time to get from North/West London to Stratford, particularly if you are cabbing it or far from a tube station. My suggestion might be to pick somewhere like Leytonstone, a couple of stops down the central line (red one on your map) and drink there. There is a good Weatherspoons and a couple of good real ale pubs on the high street and it is only ten mins back to Stratford. Looking forward to this one, think it will be close with West Ham in good form as are we.
