    Often faster to change here rather than going into Waterloo, for many destinations in London. Check out Google maps and maybe save time.

    Taking a taxi, horse riding, cycling, walking, pub crawling or not going there at all. All strongly recommended viable alternatives. If you MUST take the train... Then don't come to me complaining! :)

    No need to change platform if you are taking the Overground connection. Both trains north and south are on platform 1. This avoids what I did, going up the stairs and getting lost. :)

    If you planning to use the Overground to S'Bush, Olympia, etc then try the Southern service from plat 16/17. Sometimes they fill the gaps between Overground trains.
