My marked-up copy of the WOTM is definitely a help :). You just have to know what the limitations (and occasionally bonkersness) are. Althought once again I shall be starting my day in London by checking where the passage from the Picadilly to the Northern line is again... On an entirely different s...

Noone, I see, has been impolite enough to mention that I got around in a record-breaking four hours seven minutes and thirty-eight seconds...

victoria to hyde park wouldn't work too well - too much walking in and out of stations. what's wrong with sloane square and knightsbridge?

Need I go on? My circular route from last yea...
