to a concert at 7:30 in the Albert Hall. I was working out how to juggle the timing: got to be there by seven, can’t get into London until 6 because of the congestion charge, when I realised that today is a bank holiday and went to check whether I would have to worry about that charge today. According to every site but one, I don’t.
I was disgusted to see that nowhere on the “Congestion Charge (Official) - Transport for London” website does it bother to mention that you have to pay the congestion charge for Central London between 07:00 and 18:00, Monday to Friday except on Bank Holidays.
I wonder how many pore bluddy tourists will pay the charge on their website today. I’m not going to try it, but I bet it doesn’t refuse to accept money just because today is a bank holiday.
