My DD wants to travel home late from a wembley concert with 2 other friends. Tube + overground back to orpington. Feel very anxious about this . Am I being unreasonable?

I wouldn't let my 15yo and I'm quite slack about stuff like that, I'd pick them up.

It's usually very busy so my biggest concern would be they'd get a bit squashed or miss a connection due to delays. It can take ages ime.

Would depend a bit on how much travelling they've done in the past. Are they familiar with the tube lines and trains?

I'd just be worrying if it was very late and missed connections/problems with the line etc would they know what to do?

What time? What night if the week? I wouldn't let them on the last tube at the weekend as it can get a bit raucous.

ERlier in the eve and IF they are regular tube users then I might.

thanks all
juts broken the news to her that its not on , and another solution ( probably me sitting in wembley arena car park for 4 hours ) will have to be sought

I would IF

1 - they were confident using public transport (depends very much on experience)

2 - there was at least an hour of extra time between the train they would "normally" get for that journey, and the last train

Can they not get the train there then you pick them up at the end?

Depends how late and what day?
Also how street smart/confident they are as a group

Depends how much travelling they've done. By 15 I'd spent 4 years doing a 45 minute train/bus commute to school and back every day on my own - I'd have been more than pissed off to be told I couldn't travel back from a concert with a friend.

If they stick together and know what to do if trains are delayed, etc then I don't see it as a problem. Are they sensible?

DD and her 2 mates (from age 14) have travelled back from a few concerts late at night, back by midnightish. Mostly the O2 which is tube and overground home but the last time was Ally Pally - overground, tube then bus IIRC - back at 12.45amshock They were absolutely fine, thankfully.

Does she get public transport to school/to go out at weekends?
