Metropolitan/Jubilee Line to Wembley Park from Southwark

For those who like to plan the absolute best underground route....

Coming from Southwark on the Jubilee Line; going to Wembley Park. The official journey planner seems to suggest it's slightly better to transfer to the Metropolitan line at Finchley Road.

Good idea?

1. Re: Metropolitan/Jubilee Line to Wembley Park from Southwark

The Metropolitan Line runs non stop between Finchley Road and Wembley Park, whereas the Jubilee Line stops at all stations.

Therefore, it may be slightly quicker to change at Finchley Road, but it does depend how long you have to wait for a Metropolitan Line train.

The journey planner defaults to show the quickest route, but it assumes that all trains run to time, which doesn't always happen.

To be honest, there isn't much in it, and you would only save a few minutes at the most.

You could stay on the Jubilee all the way or change at Waterloo onto the Bakerloo line. You'd have more chance of a seat for the journey there whereas changing at Finchley Rd or Baker Street would probably mean standing depending on how many are going to Wembley. If the trains are busy at Finchley Rd you may have to let one or two go before getting on a train.

Change onto the Bakerloo line? What for?

There will bill plenty of space on the Met Line train to sit, unless the OP travels at a busy period like the evening peak.

Thanks guys. Should have made it clear I'm going to Wembley Stadium, so I assume a transfer to Bakerloo to Wembley Central is another option.

Wembley Central looks like more stops and a slightly longer walk, but could be worth it I suppose if there is more of interest there vs Park.

The big advantage of changing at Finchley Road is that the interchange is cross-platform.

At Baker Street you have to negotiate stairs/escalators - and then try to work out from which of three platforms the next Metropolitan Line train is leaving.

A journey I do most days. Definitely change across the platform at Finchley Road although do double check that the next Metropolitan line service stops at Wembley Park, one or two don't during the rush hour.
