Travel to WDYTYA on Friday

Just going through some notes sent by the Society of Genealogists (www.sog.org.uk/index.shtml) concerning travel to Who Do You Think You Are Live, as drawn up by Frank Hardy. I hope Frank does not mind me reproducing a summary of part of the notes here, as there will be some travel disruption on Friday, which may affect some, and Olympia is not the easiest place to get to.

There will be no District Line service to Olympia on the London Underground on Friday.

Alternatives:

Go to Clapham Junction by South West Trains, then from Platform 2 take London Overground train to Olympia (one every 15 mins).

Or - London Underground via Circle Line to Kensington High Street, then a bit of a walk, or bus from stop F (2nd on right as come out of station) - routes 9, 10 and 27

Or - District Line to West Kensington - leave station, cross over busy Cromwell Road and walk up North End Road to Hammersmith Road (1/2 mile) - turn right to Olympia (on other side of road)

Or - Wimbledon/Putney Bridge or Parsons Green District Line to West brompton, then cross to London Overground platform for Northbound train to Kensington Olympia, Willesden and Stratford - service every 15 minutes.

(With grateful thanks to Frank Hardy)


UPDATE: I've been contacted by a reader who says she can see nothing on this on the Transport for London site. However, I've just called the TFL customer service number (0845 330 9880) and have been told there is no service throughout the week at all except before 6am and after 10pm. There is apparently a service at the weekends though.
