Travel Problems Saturday?

I'm pretty sure I'm missing an obvious answer to this one, but Saturday looks pretty darn treacherous on the travel front. Via Victoria to Thames Ditton a replacement bus services appears in operation around the Surbiton area as with the same alternative route regarding Waterloo to Esher. TFL suggests Wimbledon, then part bus via that route. In a nut-shell, Clapham to Surbiton appears to be bus. Don't know if anybody has any alternative suggestions?

Tube from Euston to Vauxhall (11 mins). Train from Vauxhall to Kingston station (41 mins) and then 411 bus (15 min) to Old Police Station stop. From there it is a 15 min walk (0.6m) down Ember Lane to the ground, on the right. About 2 hrs overall.

I don't think there's any way you could do it without getting a bus.

Trains are running, albeit infrequently, between Waterloo / Clapham Jn and Kingston direct - there's a number of buses that go between Kingston and Surbiton where you can pick up the train to Thames Ditton or Esher. Or, alternatively, there's an hourly service to Hampton from Waterloo / Clapham Jn and then a bus to Hampton Court Station and a walk down the road.

There is an hourly local bus from Kingston and Surbiton to the ground, The route is the 515 (towards Addlestone Tesco) and departs from Kingston (Cromwell Road Bus Station) at 1300 / 1400 or Surbiton Station Claremont Road at 1312 / 1412. It arrives at the ground just before half-past the hour. The last two return journeys are at roughly 1718 and 1818.

Please note this is not a TfL route (Falcon Coaches) so fares have to paid. There is something called an Oystermatch fare of £1.60 I think each way (but the range is Kingston to Esher, which is about a mile down Ember Road).

Cheers guy's - some interesting info. Will delve in later in the week. 2 hours out of central London is really my max. TFL were citing 2 hours back to Wimbledon. That option is troublesome. What the hell - Should be a good game.

Surely following Hendon shouldn't be such an arduous task.

There must be a couple of fans who drive to the away games - offering a lift and sharing petrol costs would save a great deal of time, effort - and money ? It would also make the journey more bearable.

Seriously all, great help. I do appear to be taking on board a lot of the above. Just for larks - here's my plan of attack!
Up at 5!
5.15 - First bowl of Frosties - 5.30 Book taxi - second bowl of Frosties.
6.30 Taxi to station - 6.53 train to Brum - 7.55 Train Moor Street to Marylebone for around 10ish
1 hour out for food at usual haunt - Down to Vauxhall
Train to Kingston 11.35 or 12.05 - miss hourly connection by around 10mins on each
13.00hrs - 515 bus to no-where in particular
14.00hrs Arrive at a lamp post. To be met by a strange woman on a sleigh! She apparently offers me some Turkish Delight, claims I'm the chosen one and declares me Prince Edmund, begging me to stay! Seems a bit odd!
I would really like to stick around and meet the clan. The dwarfs and the fawns sound interesting.
I'm guessing she has no idea where the ground is - So I'm off!
The only Falcon I want to see is written on the side of the bus getting me home for last orders!
Thank you Mr B for that one!
What can possibly go wrong? Sorted!

What can go wrong? Marylebone is closed on Saturday and Sunday. The Moor St to London Marylebone passengers are being sent via Oxford to London Paddington. Chiltern are running services to Oxford then GWR to London. Revised timetables for both, obviously!

If you are travelling from Kingston/Surbiton, the bus goes past Thames Ditton Station and goes down to the A217 (I think) roundabout. Get off at the next bus stop and the ground is opposite at the end of the road. If you see woman with a sleigh you are either going to watch Green Bay instead of the Greens or about to become the victim of a terrible crime. You will find horses round the side of the stadium entrance. Be careful with the buses back; they are occasionally a couple of minutes early.

If you are travelling from Esher then get off at the first stop after the bus turns right at the Imber Court car park.
