    Railways Going to Victoria but want to go to Blackfriars


    0 Not allowed!
    I probably mentioned this before but I’m not a train person

    I have a meeting in London tomorrow near Blackfriars and have tickets bought for me to Victoria.
    I didn’t know you could get a train direct to Blackfriars from Brighton until someone told me yesterday.

    The outward ticket clearly states Victoria so have to go there and get the tube across, but the return says London terminals so do I assume correctly I can get a train back for Blackfriars?
    Also I’m due to get a before 9am train, does the “anytime day s” cover this?

      This might help. I assume it’s the same for southern.

      Not sure of the ‘rules’ but I doubt it would be a problem. The only ‘enforcement’ that Southern/Thameslink seem to be rigorous about on the London line is not using ‘TL only’ tickets to go to Victoria. I’d just check at the ticket office before you travel if you’re worried, or ask the guard.....if you can fine one

      Your return ticket is definitely ok from Blackfriars, and ‘anytime’ means pretty much just that so fine before 9am.

      If he travels on a Thameslink there is no guard

      Bit of a longshot but maybe 'Any Permitted Route' might permit you to go to Victoria via Blackfriars in the morning. That would be a half decent defence for an admitted non habitual train user, I'd suggest, in the unlikely event that somebody at any point beyond East Croydon were to question your choice of route. And you could probably wave anything from a laundry ticket to an Albion season ticket at the guys on the gate at Blackfriars in the rush hour and be waved through. Not that I would condone any such behaviour, obviously...
