    And if you want to get to Bett for 10.00, you have to walk too!

    Extra benefit is that it's an absolute nightmare at olympia station, so walking in is far easier.
    High Street Kensington is also walkable its a little bit further than West Kensington but again its just straight down the road to Olympia.

    Another one to try (for the shortest possible walk) is the overground from Clapham Junction. Don't tell too many people though, as my morning commute is bad enough as it is.

    I'm coming in to Clapham Junction, then from there straight to Kensington Olympia. Seems fairly simple.

    On the way back, I'm wandering up the road to Shepherd's Bush, taking that line down to Lancaster Gate and then wandering up to Paddington.

    Does that all seem reasonable, as I've not been to London before...

    Shepherds Bush to Paddington I am sure is only a small walk (quicker than getting the tubes anyways)...not to mention lancaster gate is only central line and has no tubes going to paddington.

    You would be better off going from Kensington to Willsden Junction then to paddington on the way back (unless you walked)

    Shepherd's Bush to Lancaster gate is 2.2miles, which is about a half an hour walk for me.

    I'd be walking from Lancaster Gate to Paddington, not getting a train...

    Walking from Olympia to Kensington is a bit longer, and at night I'm not a fan of wandering around cities.

    According to Google maps that would take over and hour on foot... it's south of the river!

    I had a play... walking times according to Google maps
    Barons Court (District Line) 13 minutes
    Shepherd's Bush station (Central and Overground) 15 minutes
    Hammersmith (District, Piccadily,Circle, Hammersmith & City) 17 minutes
    West Kensington (District) 17 minutes
    High Street Kensington (District, Circle) 20 minutes

    Looks like Barons Court might be worth a punt

    There's an overground train that runs from Clapham Junction to Kensington Olympia. The walk would be shortest because its out of the station and into the Olympia...

    On Saturday when I come up. I gotta meet my brother at Paddington (I come into Charing Cross). Going from Paddington down to High Street Kensington on tube and then walking along the road.

    Keep the suggestions coming and I'll compile them with the engineering work into a news post tonight.

    I will be doing the East Croydon -> Olympia journey on Southern or Overground myself come Saturday.
