How to get from Tonbridge to Wembley

Postby hadley » Sat Aug 25, 2012 12:27 pm

For anyone with non refundable hotel bookings in Tonbridge, it may well still be possible to see the concert at Wembley and travel back afterwards. I live in Kent and regularly have to find my way back from events in different parts of London, it's not ideal of course but is doable.

If you do have a car then personally I would park at the 02 arena (for £6 on weekday, £3 on sunday) and take the tube (right next to the car park) from North Greenwich to Wembley Park (on the same line so no need to change). Parking at the o2 is a great (and very easy drive compared to going through parts of London) option for anyone hitting London from the south. The last tube leaves Wembley Park at 00:24. From there Tonbridge is a 40 minute simple drive away.

Of course if you don't have a car then it would be more tricky but looks possible enough to me. It looks like the last train leaving London for Tonbridge leaves at 01:37 from Charing Cross. Nationalrail.co.uk for the trains and http://www.tfl.gov.uk/gettingaround/1129.aspx for when the last tube from each station is.

What a great & helpful post Hadley. Personally I'm abandoning my hotel in Tonbridge & I've rebooked for Wembley which is nearer to home for me but I know there are people who can't make this switch and who may feel themselves stranded in the Tonbridge/ Maidstone area by existing travel arrangements.

Hadley,

This is really helpful information.

I wonder whether you have posted this on the Leonard Cohen Facebook page,
as I know that there were a few disgruntled posts on there last week, with regard
to non-refundable expenses/travel arrangements etc. Am sure it will be useful to some.
My apologies if you already have and/or people are already aware.

Thanks for your kind comments guys :)

Comehealing, I don't actually have a facebook account. If you'd like to post it yourself then you're more than welcome :)

Hi Hadley,

Thanks for giving me permission to post on FB.

It might be of use to those few who may have abandoned all hope.

Best wishes,

Alexis
