    Hi All,

    I'm staying with some family friends in Chiswick next month and will need to commute to Canary Wharf for the first week and then Hyde Park Corner for the next couple of weeks.

    My nearest station is Chiswick overground.

    What route do I take and how long roughly would it be to get from Chiswick overground to CW and HPC? Would my Oyster card aslso work for getting on at Chiswick overground.

    How often do the trains run from Chiswick overground?

    And finally, would it be better to get the bus to Turnham Green and then the udnerground when commuting to Hyde Park Corner..


    Sorry for all the questions!!

    Thank You.

    If you chose to get the bus to turnham green, you have to remember that the Picadilly line only stops there at peak hours. Otherwise, the district line runs there all the time. What time of the day will you be commuting?

    Take the district line (if it's not in peak hours), to Earl's Court then change for the Piccadilly line. It's quite a quick journey actually.

    tfl.gov.uk is your friend. The journey planner will let you know which route should be quickest as well as giving times etc.

    For journeys within the London zone system, all stations should accept Oyster cards. Given that Chiswick is 'National Rail' rather than the TfL controlled Overground, the fares will be different. Nationalrail.co.uk has a journey planner and live departure boards for it.

    For Canary Wharf, it is highly likely that your best route will be Chiswick - London Waterloo, then Jubilee Line to CW (very crowded if you do this in rush hour!)

    For Hyde Park Corner, you will probably be better off going via Turnham Green.

    Oh I see, it is quite simple. I'll just take the bus to turnham green in the morning. Does anyone know what the busses are like early in the morning in that area?

    The bolded part is incorrect. Piccadilly line trains only stop at Turnham Green early mornings (before 7am) and late evenings (after 10.30pm). They do not stop during peak times so if you go there you'd have to get the district line. I'm 100 % sure on this. The original poster might as well get on at Chiswick station and via Waterloo.

    I will do that when going to CW...Chiswick overground to Waterloo and change on the Jubilee line but when going to Hyde Park corner, would it not be better getting the bus to Turnham Green st and then going district then Picadilly.

    Or would you recommend getting overground at Chiswick and then stopping at Waterloo, taking the picadilly line to HPC?

    How frequent are the overgroud trains to waterloo?

    Would you reccomend just going on the overground at Chiswick station and then getting off at Waterloo and then Jubilee line/Picadilly line to hyde park as oppose to getting a bus to turnham green and all that malarky?

    Trains are every 15 minutes from Chiswick. If you're getting from here, don't go all the way to Waterloo. Get off at Vauxhall (stop before Waterloo) and take the Victoria line to Green Park for the the Piccadilly line. The change at Green Park is a bit of a pain with a fairly long walk but that's the most direct route by rail only.

    If you fancy getting the bus, TFL journey planner says it takes the same time as the route via Vauxhall. Change at Hammersmith or Barons Court so you can get the Piccadilly line from the same platform as the District line.

    Do check the tfl website in the morning in case one of the lines on your route has severe delays (and it does happen) so you can use the other route.

    Yes, the oyster card is valid on all rail services in London (except high speed trains from St Pancras).

    Also if you have a 16-25 railcard, go to the ticket office and ask them to apply it to your oyster to get 33% off
