Your comments and questions

Anup Hi, I have 2&3train pass can I use it from elephant castle to go northern Greenwich for O2

Staff Unfortunately not, as the journey also passes through zone 1. You'll need a ticket that covers zones 1-2

Ras What is the transfer time/distance between Bakerloo and Northern line?

Staff Hi Ras. we haven't got the exact distance but it will only be a few minutes. If youre going to the southbound northern line then its three flights of stairs (2 up and 1 down). if its the northbound northern line then its just two flights of stairs (2 up)
