    Can I get there with no exchanges?
    There's no white circles from there, only a disabled circle from King's.
    Sorry, if stupid question. First time.

    Go on tfl journey planner, on the tfl website. It's by far the best way to find out for certain before leaveing your house. It takes into account all planned closures and delays that are may be occuring.

    Quickest way is Piccadilly Westbound towards Heathrow/Uxbridge/Rayners Lane. Change at South Kensington and get on the Circle or District line (Same platform probably) Eastbound towards Upminster

    Take the Victoria Line southbound then. Its £2 single if you have an oyster card. £4.30 single if you only have cash. You can buy an oyster card for £5 at a ticket machine, and once you are done with it, return it to a ticket office and you get the £5 back. Oyster is sooooo much cheaper than cash.

    If it's still the weekend then Victoria line is probably going to be still closed, but if it's a weekday, then you can both or any other route.
    The prices will still be the same however long the route. Off peak is cheaper than peak.

    No, the Victoria Line is shut today, and even when it is open, every other train breaks down. And that was after the multimillion pound update of the rolling stock..

    You don't need a photo. Just ask for an Oyster Card. Its £2 per single journey unfortunately. You could get a Day travelcard for zone 1 for £7. But only worth it if you make 4 or more journeys on the day.

    Are you sure about that? I've got a spare oyster card but don't want to make a fool of myself trying to get the fiver back.
