Train to Paddington
Jump on the yellowy coloured line to Baker Street

Food and drink and the globe

Then on purple line to Wembley to go to The Torch


The yellowy coloured line will take you on a circuit of London, you need to take the orange one (Hammersmith and City near platform 14)


The Circle Line runs on exactly the same track as H+C, goes from the same platform and goes to the same place.

Just get on whichever comes first.

We have a couple of car loads leaving from Fleet, Hants and planning on driving to Ruislip Manor Underground station (where they have a large outdoor car park), and then catching the tube into Wembley.

If anyone else is in the Fleet area and wants to join us and make a URZ Blue & White convey then let me know and we can arrange to meet up before leaving

Minibus from Burghfield. £20 all in. Traffic will be awful (as ever) coming out.

It's a ritual. If you lose then you've got to take the trafffic jam of shame as the winning supporters file merrily by giving you stick.

For anyone driving I recommend parking at Denham station (around £7 for the day) and catch a regular train to Wembley, much easier to get in and out and no traffic on the way home

I'm going to be travelling down from Liverpool on the Monday morning as I'm at a festival over the weekend.

Outside chance of some Hudds fans looking to escape the packed trains being on board which could be fun.

We'll be going up with Horseman coaches but it's good to know there's at least one other Fleet based Royal on here! :mrgreen:

Coach for us unfortunately from Bristol to London Vic. Few pints in the city then taking the tube to the ground, should be relatively stress free.

Usual Wembley routine:
drive to Beaconsfield
park at station
train to Wembley

takes a while queuing after but still better than driving all the way

I think we have to prepare for extra security measures after last nights terror attack. be it in pubs on the tube or outside the stadium.

The queuing won`t be as bad as after the Arsenal game because . either Huddersfield will still be inside the the stadium, or they will be gone a long time before we leave.

Look out for a great band called Catholic Action at the festival ;)


I am, apparently, now driving Schards and the 3 boys to Didcot Parkway station. One is flying in from Scotland on Sunday night, one is flying in from Malta on Saturday afternoon and one is driving down from Liverpool on Sunday - that's dedication for you!

I will then be driving back from Didcot (either on my own if we win, as the "lads" all want to party, or with a car full of pissed up blokes crying like babies when Reading once again fail to deliver.) Go me.

Just in case you are unaware as there are lots of changes to the trains on bank holiday weekend.
https:/https://www.reading-forum.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=105&t=12312/

Rail replacement coaches will operate non-stop between Reading and Swindon every 30 minutes, with one service an hour continuing to and from Chippenham. Rail replacement coaches will also operate hourly between Didcot Parkway, Swindon and Bristol Parkway, continuing on Saturday and Monday to Patchway*.

Also calling at Rejection, Disappointment, Backstabbing Central and Shattered Dreams Parkway


A-Ha!
