This is not the first 48 hour strike we will be having, there is another planned for the same time next week so you may as well get some back up plans down now.

Here is a link to a great tube map made by Ian Visits that shows the stations still in working order over this period. It's not al doom and gloom but it's worth remembering that the stations open will be very busy and trains will run far more sporadically than usual.

Then there's always the buses but of course, especially in rush hour you are likely to have to let at least 3 go past you due to them being too full.

Below is a whole list of stations effected as reported by TFL. Really your best bet is to walk, cycle (carefully as there will be a lot of traffic about) or simply stay at home.
