Matchday travel news

The official Chelsea website brings you travel news ahead of our Premier League trip to Cardiff City, including news of disruptions on train services to Wales. 

National Rail

Trains from London to Cardiff on Sunday will only be going as far as Newport, from where a replacement bus service to Cardiff, lasting approximately 40 minutes, will be required. It is the same for the journey back. 

In London, late-notice engineering work is taking place between Virginia Water and Weybridge, closing all lines.

As a result, replacement buses will run between Virginia Water and Woking, calling at all stations.

You are advised to check the National Rail journey planner prior to your departure.


The District line is closed between Wimbledon and Earl's Court, and there is no service on the Victoria line between Brixton and Victoria. A reduced service operates between Victoria and Walthamstow. 

On London Overground, there is no service between Surrey Quays and Clapham Junction, with replacement buses in operation. 

We advise you to check the TFL website prior to travelling.

The roads

If you are travelling to the game by car, please remember Chelsea's Liftshare Scheme, which enables those supporters with room in their vehicle to give a fellow Blue a lift to the game.

Please check your route prior to departure through either the AA or RAC websites.

Traffic England have live Traffic alerts.


You can also follow the dedicated Chelsea police account on Twitter, which will provide useful updates and information on matchday.
