Questions about this journey

  • Admin – “Do you mean the journey shown above in the box? I don't get your question”
  •  Guest – “On 15 July travelling from portsmouth to Victoria on coach then on to Olympia to 50+ show. Will there be any train works on that day? How much does underground costs from Victoria to Kensington?”
  • Admin – “not according to the TFL website, no (i'm assuming that you mean the district line). you can still get the London overground line to Kensington Olympia, but that doesn't go from Victoria unfortunately (and it's not worth getting it from anywhere else because it's too out of the way).the best you can do is go from victoria to West Kensington on the district line and then walk it. it's only a 15-min walk from there.The cost for zones 1-2 can be found here -- ... prices.phpIt will just be zone 1 if you get off at earls court, but its a longer walk”
  •  Guest – “I will be attending a Conference in Olympia next year ( im planning ahead ). I need help knowing what train/s i need to catch. i will be arriving at Victoria coach station and need to get to Olympia. this will be next February and the journey will take place probably around 7am on a Saturday. any help would be awesome..Thanks.”
  • Admin – “The journey is in the box (on the first page)They don't always run trains to olympia though. They only really do them when there's a big event on. Unfortunately it's far too early to get the timetables up for a date next year, so you really need to check back a month before (we can only get confirmed times up to the end of august at the moment)”
