Has anyone driven on previous visits? I need to be at Heathrow T4 for a 21:20 flight, with check-in closing at 20:20. I think I have plenty of time - it's only 13 miles, but can anyone who went by road in '07 or '08 advise approximately what time you were back on the M4? Cheers

You'll have plenty of time even after all the celebrations, don't worry. Perhaps park at the station adjacent to the A40 (Hillingdon?) and get the Met line in from there. From Hillingdon station it's about a 15-20 minute drive down the A40/A312/A4 to Heathrow.

Incidentally I've had the weekend travel info through and there's no Central Line running this weekend - not sure if this will affect anyone's plans.

There are also closures on the Overground trains to Wembley. We were travelling up from Shepherd's Bush, and a 19 minute direct rail journey has turned into a 45 minute trek across the underground.

We have delays on the Temple Meads to Paddington leg adding about half an hour to that journey but the total journey still seems to give the same arrival at Wembley time.

Eh? No problem with the Central Line this weekend. Only closures are District Line (Wimbledon branch), parts of the DLR and some overground services towards Liverpool Street

Looks like it might rain during the match, according to the BBC weather forecast.

I bungled big time - it's just Chancery Lane that's closed all weekend.
