London City Airport

Had to fly out to Denmark at short notice and selected a SAS flight from London City Airport thinking that it should be easy to get to without having to find a last minute taxi. Indeed, it ought to be: an hour on the train to Waterloo followed by the Jubilee Line and DLR. Unfortunately Network Rail had other ideas and aren’t running any trains between Basingstoke and Farnborough every weekend in May. This would have meant getting a bus from Winchester to Alton and then changing again at Woking. Ended up getting a taxi after all which, at 2.5 hours and £100, still wasn’t much better. The airport itself was great though with all the advantages of a small regional airport – think I’ll leave it to the good citizens of London in future though.
