Update: the Greenwich foot tunnel worked a treat. I stood near the Cutty Sark very close to the entrance to the tunnel so it was easy to get to it.

The northern end of the tunnel comes out only a couple of hundred yards from the course's left turn at mile 16.5 into E Ferry Road, which was not crowded. From there it's a couple of minutes back to Island Gardens DLR for access to DLR/Jubilee Line/Westminster. All good.

More importantly, how did she do?

She managed a 2:50 and was delighted with the PB but at the same time slightly disappointed not to go under 2:50. She just slipped ever so slightly off her 4 min/k pace in the second half, which didn't add much, but with the almost inevitable extra couple of hundred yards covered at London it just pushed her out of 2:49 territory. Good example of the difference between watch pace and "official" pace.

I saw Chrissie Wellington going through Westminster about a minute behind her, so she was pleased when she discovered that! :-)
