  • Yep, I'd say so. It's as reliable as any station really. It's got great links to many places but can get quite busy. I think it has about 14 platforms, so it always helps to find out which trains go from which platforms before you get there.

  • It is a very big station, with many platforms. It is also one of the busiest railway stations in Britain (according to signs put out on the platfroms). This means it can prove to be tricky to get to the platform where your trains goes from if it's at the other end of the station. I have travelled through Clapham Junction many times and never had any problems to get to my destination - it has great transport links to many destinations. You can check out a wide range of information about the station (it also says it is open 24 hours) if you click on the link below:

  • Totally depends where you're going to and from! I would say that they need to put on more services on the line up to Willesden Junction now that there's a station at the Shepherd's Bush Westfield Shopping Centre. The trains only have 3 coaches so it's getting really busy.

  • Clapham Junction is the one of the busiest stations in the UK so you shouldn't have any problems with reliability. There are connections to stations all across the south of England. There aren't very many trains that run all night, so worth checking your line first. However there are night buses that frequently stop at Clapham Junction.
