Travel Information for Chelsea Away

We have received the following information from Chelsea Supporters Trust regarding Transport for London's pre-planned engineering work that takes place on the same day as our game with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Essentially, the District Line (which serves Fulham Broadway, West Brompton and Earls Court, the nearest tube stations to Stamford Bridge) is out of action west of South Kensington tube. The Piccadilly Line will be operating through Earls Court but there will be considerable delays using that station.
 
Transport for London also notes there will be an "amended" London Overground service on the day, which calls at Imperial Wharf and West Brompton. This will also be much busier than normal.
 
District Line services west of South Kensington are not operating on the day of the game, including Fulham Broadway station which serves Stamford Bridge. The Piccadilly Line is operating through Earls Court, the next nearest station to the ground, but it is anticipated to be extremely busy after the match with long queues expected.
 
We would advise Liverpool supporters travelling home from Euston station to walk to South Kensington tube station. To do this, turn left out of Stamford Bridge onto the main road (Fulham Road), walk for roughly 15 minutes and turn left onto Sydney Place/Onslow Square for South Kensington. Alternatively, if you see a 14 bus on the Fulham Road (to Warren Street) it will take you to South Kensington, but be aware buses are on diversion in the area immediately around Stamford Bridge. At South Kensington, take the Piccadilly Line to Green Park and change onto the Victoria Line for Euston national rail. The total journey time should take no more than 45 minutes.
 
The journey planner on the Transport for London website here is a very useful tool for planning journeys on the day and is compatible with smart phones. As mentioned above, be aware buses are on diversion before and after the match around Stamford Bridge.
 
A PDF of suggested walking routes can be found here:
