The unexpected difficulties of getting to Old Street

My aged colleague Andy Piper asked an interesting question about getting to Old Street last week.

He correctly observes that there appear to be no good routes from Farnborough; they all involve horrific crowds, excessive numbers of changes or the use of train lines that will not be running for a large portion of this year.

He suggests various options and I must admit that I find it hard to identify any that are superior.

My advice, therefore, is to wait for the DLR to be extended to Charing Cross as he will then be able to take a pleasant walk over the Thames from Waterloo every morning in order to catch it. It will, of course, require him to lobby hard for a route that includes Old Street but there is ample time.
