does anyone know how I get to the QE11 centre on time for a 9am start? Living near Battle East Sussex and all the train times are currently showing Victoria as my only direct option. I know there have been problems with Waterloo engineering running over...but HALP?

The QEII centre seems to be exactly half way between Victoria and Waterloo, so why would Waterloo be the preferred station to get into?

Get yourself to Bexhill and hop on the train to Victoria. It's about a fifteen minute walk from there or you can get either a bus along Victoria Street or the District or Circle line to St James Park tube which is a couple of minutes from the QE2 centre.

Looks like you'll need to get a train around 0620 from Bexhill.

Victoria station is about a 15 minute, straight-shot walk from the QEII centre. There have been major works at Waterloo station this summer so probably better to avoid it. You can also take a bus from Victoria to the QEII if you're carrying luggage, etc., and that should only take you a couple ot minutes.

I should add I walk from Victoria to Westminster every day on my way to work. It's a simple trip.

And yeah, the QEII centre's straight across Parliament Square from Westminster Abbey and the Houses of Parliament. It's the one that looks like a featureless box amongst lots of more ornate things. You won't have any problems spotting it, and it's got good signage.

Thanks all, I have no idea why I thought Victoria was so much farther than Waterloo...
