I never thought of that.
I am going to make a few routes to have instead of just the 2 i know of.
Star for you.

Reading your post i couldn't work out which bit of london you're in or which direction you're heading, it did sound like you're east, north-east and heading towards me (essex) along the Thames?
Working in London and living in essex i've considered this route quiet alot, i think it's a good one because massive areas of the bank are old industrial areas long since disused and it's riddled with footpaths. Recently they announced that they're turning the entire strip into a massive nature reserve and adding even more footpaths.
It's fairly common for displaced people to travel along riverbanks in huge numbers however and the distance between the center of the city and the country is often further along the river. Plus if you have the river to one side of you your escape routes are limited if attacked, etc.
My plan would be to travel in the industrial strip which goes along the river keeping it between a few hundred meters and a mile to my right until i get to the kink in the river by Wennington at which point i will head NE over the country towards home to regroup and retool ready for the next phase.
Of course this is only my best choice route, for all i know the river could be the source of the problem! It's of course impossible to plan when you don't know what's going to happen but still worth it
As you don't have a final destination it's important to have plans to get to a few different sections of the nation, the south coast and east anglia could be totaly different environments depending on what's happening and may be either safer or far more dangerous than say the north or west. I would assume that the north west would be the best direction to run in most events but it comes with it's own problems too.
would be interesting in hearing your thoughts on this
