    I'm going to see Britney Spears on the 7th June and we are staying here http://www.radissonedwardian.com/londonuk_canarywharf at the Radisson Edwardian New Providence Wharf in Canary Wharf. The hotel looks lovely - the only problem is I have just had an email from the O2 saying the jubilee tube line is closed that day :eek: How on earth do I get from our hotel to the O2 now? It doesnt look like you can walk....so I am thinking taxi - any ideas about how much it would cost (please prepare me for the worst!), and how easy is it go get a taxi from the 02 after a concert?

    In addition - there is a planned tube strike on the 9th while we are still in London :scared: Help!

    There are replacement buses -

    Jubilee line

    Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 June, suspended between Green Park and Stratford. Two rail replacement bus services operate.

    Service E: between Bank and Canada Water, calling at Monument, London Bridge and Bermondsey.

    Service F: between North Greenwich and Stratford, calling at Canning Town and West Ham.

    Claire ;)

    Looking at the above map Canning Town tube looks about the same distance as Canary Wharf tube.

    You should get a cab no problems after the concert, they normally have them sitting at north greenwich station. However it can be quiet a pain getting out of there after a concert due to the traffic so the taxi meter could run up a bit sitting in the traffic around the o2. We've been stuck on the road leading away from the o2/north greenwich for about 20mins before after a concert.
    You could get the DLR from canary warf to cutty sark station and from right outside the station (right by the weatherspoons) get a 188 bus to the o2, the bus should only take about 10mins at the most. I think theres also a bus that runs that route but im not sure, you can check www.tfl.gov.uk for other routes :)
