Questions about this journey

  • Admin – “They are running every 20 minutes and it takes 3 minutes from earls court. Make sure you get the right train from victoria though (if thats where youre going from), because not all district line trains go to kensington olympia, otherwise youll have to change at earls court”
  •  Guest – “Yes, i was going from Victoria to Earls court to Olympia. so the trains from Earls court to Olympia are running every 20 minutes on 20/02? is that right? what is the schedule - what time does the first train from EC to O leave?”
  • Admin – “Thats what we said, yes. The first one from earls court on that date is at 7.00 AMIts not very far, by the way. You could probably walk to kensington olympia from earls court in fifteen minutes”
  •  Guest – “Thank you very much for that. do the trains run into the evening? (EG after 6pm?) if they do, are they still every 20 minutes? I would walk, but being from outside the city, i dont want to take the chance of getting lost”
