Woolwich Ferry on route home from #uNDC14

Off message but last Sunday I was on my way home to East London from UNISON NDC conference via a weekend recovering in Worthing. The traffic approaching the Blackwell Tunnel was bloody awful so I decided to take the scenic route home to Newham via the Woolwich Ferry.

Only one car ferry across the River Thames runs during the weekend, so there was a bit of a wait but it is far, far better than being stuck in slow moving traffic. If you need to cross London by car and you are not in a rush,  then I always recommend the Woolwich Ferry. 

The views across the river while waiting or on the Ferry are always beautiful and magnificent. Of course the whole of East London needs another bridge or tunnel across the Thames but that is another matter.
