Proposed strike on the Dockland Light Railway (DLR) is scheduled to take place between 04:00 on Wednesday 28 January and 03:59 on Friday 30 January. Enhanced bus services will operate between Canning Town, King George V and London City Airport. Passengers travelling on public transport should allow additional time and plan their journey before they travel.
As the principal city in the Algarve, Faro often gets overlooked in favour of the beaches and golf resorts elsewhere in the region, but for a slice of relaxed Portuguese living – complete with medieval quarters, crackling nightlife and a pretty marina – it’s somewhere that’s well worth a break in its own right. Its past stretches back to the Roman and Moorish occupations, meaning there’s much here of historical importance, while the 300 days of annual sunshine it benefits from are another welcome boon.
