Dulwich travel?

Sorry chaps, I don't like asking these questions that often. Planning journeys and stuff.
Anyone know if the Overground is in operation on the day. National Rail flags this up as linked to Southern. I presume trains are running into Denmark Hill?
If not, I presume it's an epic bus ride from either Elephant & Castle or The Oval. Any alternatives?
Cheers.

Just checked the TfL (Travel for London) website for 2nd January. Unless your journey includes the Romford to Upminster line (closed 1st-2nd January) or the Gospel Oak to Barking line (long term closure), London Overground appears to be running, so you should be able to use it to Denmark Hill.

Not sure whether London Bridge station will be open for the service through East Dulwich, which is nearest the ground.

As with most days I think there is a strike on Southern Railway, however with it being the conductors on the picket line and with trains between London Bridge and East Dulwich being Driver operated doors, there should be trains running. However, Southern drivers are working to rule and refusing overtime so expect cancellations too.

I am thinking about going as well. Never been to Champion Hill. The 176 passes by East Dulwich station as well. You can catch it at Elephant. If Southern can be trusted you can catch Thameslink from Hendon to E&C and then 176. I think we're looking at a 90 min journey whatever way you go if you're going from round Hendon area.

Other option if travelling into London on Thameslink, is to go to Blackfriars and change there to go to Denmark Hill, which is about a 10 minute walk from Champion Hill (come out station, and just walk down the hill).

Trains from Blackfriars to Denmark Hill depart at 12, 20, 42 and 50 minutes past the hour.

Trains from Denmark Hill to Blackfriars depart (frustratingly!) at 24, 28, 54 and 58 minutes past the hour.

The trains to Denmark Hill from Blackfriars will depart from platforms 3 & 4 on Monday.

You've also got four trains an hour (but like the Blackfriars route not at 15 minute intervals) from Victoria to Denmark Hill, which is operated by Southeastern Trains so unaffected by strike action.

Alternatively Jubilee Line through to Canada Water, then Overground to Denmark Hill. It's the Clapham Junction branch and runs every 15 mins; these won't be affected by the strike action. This is probably the best interchange in terms of distance between platforms, and although it might look a roundabout route as the crow flies it shouldn't take significantly longer than any other route.

Yeah I like this route. Sounds like the best option for me. I can get to Canada Water easy from Wembley park. The overground close to the exit you say? Although I don't know that area at all I'm guessing Denmark Hill is not too far a walk? By the way how much is it to get in at Dulwich? Travel will be 10. Might need 40 notes to be safe lol!

Adult admission is £10, with various concessions as listed:

Denmark Hill station is around a ten minute walk, or get any bus (40, 176, 185, 484) from the stop outside the station exit. Doge Kennel Hill is very steep, so anyone not especially mobile should go to the bus stop outside East Dulwich station for a bus back to Denmark Hill. Or if you're lucky there might be a train to London Bridge - there's an indicator board with train service information outside the station by the bus stop. Map here:

Thanks for all the tips PP. Indeed I am not so mobile at the moment. I have chronic foot pain. I see they give discount to nhs staff. I better take my badge along. I would definitely prefer to go from East Dulwich on the way back if possible. Hope Southern is working by some miracle!

At Canada Water, take an escalator up one floor and head for Platform Three (same level), broadly straight in front of you.

Hoping I can get the train up from Beckenham to East Dulwich as I didn't get a ticket for Wombles v Millwall.

Beckenham to East Dulwich (& London Bridge) won't be running on Monday due to the Southern conductor strike according to various resources detailing what is and isn't expected to run on strike days.

This in turn means that those planning to travel via London Bridge will see a reduced service to East Dulwich - half hourly at 10 and 40 minutes past the hour instead of the usual every 15 minutes.

The Beckenham Junction to London Bridge route (via East Dulwich) has been one of the worst affected by the Southern Trains nonsense. If you're starting from Beckenham check before hand, and if it's not running bus 227 to Penge, then bus 176 from Penge takes you all the way to the ground. Both those bus routes run every 8-10 mins or so. Whole journey shouldn't take more than an hour including waiting times, although I'd allow a bit more just to be safe.
