Travel on Saturday

I am travelling to the Valley on Saturday from Worcestershire, having arrived at Charing Cross i then have to get Charlton which is not normally a problem but this coming Saturday busses are replacing trains from Lewisham as there are engineering works between Blackheath and Barnehurst. Has anyone experienced this problem before? How near to the Valley do the busses take you and more importantly what happens after the game.

    Normally rail replacement buses take you to a bus stop close to the station, I would imagine it would stop on Woolwich Road
  • Go from London Bridge
  • Change trains at London Bridge and get on a Greenwich Line Train to Charlton

    From what I can see the works are between Blackheath and Barnehurst.

    The Charing Cross train via Lewisham goes to Blackheath and then veers off to Charlton. Southeastern's website says the journey will be affected by the works but shows the service as running.

    Alternatively take Boughtonaddicks advice and change at London Bridge and get the Greenwich line service which is quite frequent and takes about 15 minutes.

    I think you will find, the trains to Charlton via Lewisham are not affected, when you get to Charing Cross, you will see on the departure board, if they are change at London Bridge
  • Many thanks for all your help, am I correct in thinking that return trains from Charlton to Charing Cross after the game won’t be affected?
  • Nothing can be guaranteed with South Eastern.

  • Trains from Charing Cross to Charlton at 12 and 42 minutes past the hour on Saturday. Takes 26 minutes.

    Other trains at 15, 30 & 45 get you to London Bridge where you can change trains to get to Charlton. Takes up to 39 minutes.

    Only by the expected crowd of 27000 people leaving the ground after we are sold to Bill Gates tomorrow

    If that were to happen a lot of fans wouldn't be going home on the Saturday
  • Avoid driving through Greenwich Town centre tomorrow,as it's 'car free day'.
