Is it worth travelling from Richmond to St Pancreas for Javelin Train or stick to underground?

Well I live in Richmond and would choose overground over train/tube anyway, especially at peak times.

The train takes between 16-30 minutes to Waterloo depending whether you get a fast train, and the fast ones are always very full. 5-10 minutes to change into jubilee line (it's quite a long walk) and then at least 20 minutes on the jubilee line from Waterloo to Stratford.

Overground takes 65 minutes.

The Overground from Richmond takes about 80 minutes. The train/underground is more like 30 minutes.

If travelling from Richmond there is an overland straight to Stratford - easy peesey!

Also on Jubilee Line today from Waterloo. No problems, quite quiet at about 11am. When you return from Stratford head right to the front of the train, then you'll get seats.

We were on the Jubilee Line today. It was fine - we got seats.

Anyone done the underground today ? Going on Jubilee tomorrow morning to Olympic Park from Waterloo .

Thought it might be busier as 'summer hols' seem to be over .

stick to the underground, it's pretty quiet.

I would get the overground, you'll get a seat - tubes and javelin trains going in and out of Stratford the other day were packed

Cool. Thanks all

Yes, all covered by your Games travelcard.

Take a train to Waterloo, then the Jubilee line.

I love the idea of a saint called Pancreas smile

Ok thanks all. A few options. Are all those options covered by the games zone 1-9 ticket?

We went from Richmond to Stratford direct on the overground. Takes around an hour but no changing trains required

To the Olympic Park? Take the train straight to Waterloo and change onto the Jubilee Line tube to Stratford.

We did Waterloo to Stratford on the Jubilee line today and we were pleasantly suprised. We did head to the end of each platform to get the emptier carriages but so much easier than changing tubes / going overground.

We arrived at 11:30 and left at 7pm if that helps.

Not familiar with London trains - staying with family in Richmond. Thanks
