Dalston Junction To Moorgate Via The Elizabeth Line

This morning to get my breakfast at Leon on Moorgate, I took the longer route via Dalston Junction and Whitechapel stations using the East London and Elizabeth Lines.


  1. I travelled in the last coach of the Overground train from Dalston Junction station.
  2. I travelled towards the front of the Elizabeth Line train from Whitechapel station.
  3. There are lifts between Overground and the Elizabeth Line at Whitechapel station.
  4. All the escalators have traffic lights.
  5. Using stairs and escalator, the change at Whitechapel station took around two minutes.

The total journey time was just over 25 minutes.

    • I thought that and asked some station staff. They said it was a typical Friday and everybody seems to be going away for the weekend.

      • I know Monday is lowest commuting day of the week now followed by Friday although on leisure Friday does rather well. Hopefully DfT will realise that the best strategy now is to remove all the peak fare times on commuter routes and just have one fare structure like most big cities do in Europe.

  2. I changed from the District line to the Elizabeth line at Whitechapel at about 10.45 am yesterday and the station was a lot busier than these photos indicate.
