    Tube question

    I need to get from Fenchurch Street to Kings Cross every day. Is it better to use Aldgate rather than Tower Hill because the trains are more frequent?

  4. Who missed the last train home then...?

    ....and spent the night at Fenchurch Street? Come on, somebody must have done it! There must be a couple of fans somewhere who ended up running for the vomit comet and missed it by a couple of minutes. Anyone care to admit?
  5. Fenchurch St pub?

    Does anybody know of a good pub in the Fenchurch Street area that will be showing the game tomorrow night? I can't get back from London in time to get to the game but hoping to catch it in a pub. Thanks.

    City Shrimpers - POLL ADDED

    It's time to resurrect this once proud tradition, not least as we need to formally raise a glass in memory of one more of our own who is so sadly no longer with us. For those who haven't been before, it involves us congregating in the Ship near Fenchurch St/Liverpool St and putting the world to...

    Sleeping Rough

    I can't work this out. I work in London, into Liverpool Street and my office is close to Fenchurch Street. Everyday for the last week or two there has been someone sleeping rough by an air duct in the building next door. All you can see is the sleeping bag with a hint of hair sticking out and a...

    Shops you never noticed.

    Despite walking past it every day for a decade this morning I noticed the magnificently named Imperial Caesar Italian Menswear shop on Fenchurch Street which looks as though it specialises in suits which have no doubt graced magistrates courts across the land and brought grief to any owner who...

    Trains Tonight

    Anyone using C2C tonight ( I know its not the logical route but..) should note that after the 22.20 from Fenchurch St there is a bus replacement between Upminster and Pitsea. Only heard the announcement this morning so it may be worth checking the website for full details, but there are...

    City Shrimpers - Tonight, at the Ship

    In case you don't read pinned messages or venture into Shrimpers Chit-Chat, it's tonight at the Ship in Talbot Court. http://fancyapint.com/Pub/london/the-ship/1778 If you haven't been there before, we've helpfully chosen a pub hidden down an alleyway. Not to be confused with the other pub of...

    City Shrimpers 15th November - Attn London based/working Zoners

    Right, there's £2.60 left in the whip from Harry's wake so I can think of nothing better to do with it than to resurrect City Shrimpers, of which Harry was a founder member. It's what Harry would have wanted. To be held at the City Shrimpers' spiritual home of the Ship, not too far from...

    Pubs near Fenchurch St station to watch the Euros in?

    Any recommendations? Most of the better places don't have TVs and/or will be packed. On a slightly related note, Cyril - do Sonny & Terry's show the football? No use for the 5pm KOs, but was thinking of trying it for a 7:45pm?

    wearing trainers to/from work.

    I have noticed that I am wearing out a lot if shoes walking between Fenchurch Street and Fleet Street. In order to reduce my expenses and save a few snakes/crocodiles I have started to wear a pair of Asics running shoes to/from work. What are peoples views on this?
  17. Fenchurch Street to Fulham broadway?

    Can anyone tell me how long it would take to walk between these two locations preferably alongside the Thames where possible?
