random question but is there a main trainstation in the centre of london? (Apart form the underground) i have only been to london once when i was about 10.
Is it London Euston?

Another random question : How close is buckingham palance to where all the main shops etc are in london?

Kings Cross
Paddington
Marylebone
Fenchurch Street
London Bridge
Waterloo
St Pancras
Charing Cross
Cannon Street
Victoria
Waterloo East
Blackfriars
City Thameslink
Liverpool Street

Probably some more that I haven't got!

Euston -> Marylebone is pretty much walkable. Have a look on google maps - should give you a rough idea of distances.

My new favourite thing in the world - the geographic tube map can give you an idea too.

It's about a mile. The 205 or 18 buses will take you more or less door-to-door.

Slightly OT - are there expected train delays tomorrow? got an interview, heard some delays today

If it snows - which is forecast, I'd expect delays as it will undoubtedly be the wrong sort of snow.

Engineering works are done at weekends.

Probably a bit late, but trains from Yorkshire and north east lines generally go to Kings Cross iirc, West Coast Main Line goes to Euston, e.g. from Manchester, Lancashire, Cumbria. But I think there used to be a train from Manchester to Kings Cross, don't know if runs any more.

There were delays a total ****-ups around Stoke-On-Trent today because of a bust gas main. Meant i missed an interview myself, luckily it's managed to be rescheduled for next tuesday. Still wasted 3 hours getting a train to Stockport, and back again :rolleyes:


I'd say Euston and Kings X were the main two, at least for the midlands/east anglia

London ;()!
I'd say Waterloo's pretty sizeeable, but I'd say the biggest 4 or 5 around the circle line were the main ones. It really doesn't matter, its not like where you've got Manchester Picadilly and 'the other one', they're all equally connected :)
