Mate of mine lives in Hoddesdon, not far from me and is a WHU STH. He drives down to each home game, and parks in a mate of his' driveway 10 mins walk or so away from ground. Going with him. However, didn't think there were many houses in Stratford with driveways!

Know the area reasonably well as in laws used to live in East Ham, a 1/4 mile away from the Boleyn Ground. They always knew WH had scored, without going to any games there. When we played there in 1993, parked outside their house - no Resident's Parking restrictions in those days!
Park in Leytonstone and get the tube two stops to stratford. Most E11 residents roads are free to park at weekends.

I walk round there most days...

Normally - as you know - you'd walk along the river (past the mayor's office) then up the steps onto Tower Bridge, and over the bridge. However, with the Marathon, Lord knows where the crossings will be. As you say, there's a tunnel under the road at Tower Hill, so you can double back on yourself from the bridge, which solves the problem as long as Minories isn't closed...

If you're keen to DLR, I'd be tempted to walk from London Bridge up to Bank and start the DLR from there, or at least walk over London Bridge and wiggle round to Tower Hill on the north side of the river ;)
That sounds like a plan.
If I can avoid Stratford I will, but it might not be that easy on the way back.
Thank you.

Sounds like a bit of a kerfuffle that route. You'd probably be better off getting the Jubilee line from London Bdg to Canning Town (about 11 minutes) then either get the DLR to Stratford High Street, a bit more walking tho' or get the DLR from Canning Town to Poplar and change for the Pudding Lane DLR there.
Certainly food for thought. I have junior with me and if I can avoid a crowded tube then I will.
Might not be possible on the way back though.
Thanks anyway.

Good call - didn't even think the marathan would be this late in the year! Actually wondering if the sprint trains from St Pancras to Stratford Intl are a good plan to use

It was certainly easier to get to the international station afterwards during the Olympics, not sure about WHU

Quicker to go Paddington then Bakerloo to Baker St then Jubilee.

Tfl planner suggests H&C to Liverpool St and TfL or Central from there - Jubilee was my fist thought but they do not suggest it all! However it looks like I might meet my bro at Kings Cross now instead and get the train from St Pancras

Never, ever take the Circle/H&C. It's an infrequent service from Paddington and then you have to change at Edgware Road for another infrequent service. Bakerloo/Jubilee are both regular and reliable.

Can anyone recommend the best route from King's Cross tube?
If it was me I’d get the Northern line to Bank then change onto the DLR (access to the DLR is on the same platform (90% sure), get the DLR to Poplar then change onto the DLR at Poplar which serves Pudding Mill Lane - PML is the closest station to the away end. The DLR from Bank only serves Lewisham, Woolwich or Beckton. You’d need the Woolwich or Beckton train, the Lewisham train doesn’t serve Poplar.

I'm planning Gunnersbury to Hackney Wick on the overground. Meeting friends in The Tank there. Does this route still look feasible? Not aware of any closure or works on that line.

The Lewisham train will stop at West India Quay though and that allows a change to get onto the line to PML one stop before Poplar so not usually worth waiting for a Woolwich or Beckton train.

Doh! Of course, it’s only 15 mins or so.
But - from what I have discovered you can't use oyster or travelcard on it and have to pay extra for it (London assembly want to close this anomoly)

Not very good at this am I :( I’ll shut up now.

If anyone can’t make the game I’ll happily buy your ticket, and try and make my own way there (thankfully I can walk it).

Much more of a pain to change at West India Quay, and Lewisham trains don't stop there so you would have to change at Canary Wharf

Poplar is a cross-platform change and the busiest station (in terms of trains) on the whole DLR network, so best to change there.

Yes they do stopping slagging off Pooisham.
"As of April 2017 DLR trains from Bank towards Lewisham do not stop at this station, meaning to get here from the City of London passengers must travel on to Canary Wharf and get the next train in the opposite direction."
