    Best route from Sevenoaks to Stratford, East London 8th Oct 16 at 6:40 PM
    Tomorrow morning, Sunday, we are driving from Sevenoaks to the Olympic Park, Stratford, East London.

    Should we go?

    M25, A20, Blackwall tunnel.

    M25, A2, Blackwall tunnel.

    M25, Dartford Tunnel, A12.

    A20 looks the best route to the Blackwall tunnel but the AA route planner says A2 which is a longer route. Is the A20 route slow?

    We are in no great hurry so we think we should avoid the Dartford Crossing route, even if that is quicker, due to the cost.

    Returning Monday, after the morning rush hour, which is the best route?

    I would do M25/A2, the A2 is dual carriageway all the way to the Stratford exit, A20 is a slower road. Dartford/A12 is going miles out of the way.

    Thanks peachyprice.

    We used the A2 both ways with no problems.

    Had a great time seeing relatives.
