No trams, I'm afraid. The only trams in the London area are in the Croydon
district.

According to http://journeyplanner.tfl.gov.uk, the quickest way is usually
to use National Rail Richmond to Vauxhall, then back out to Esher. [You
could change at Clapham Junction, but Vauxhall is probably less confusing.]
There used to be a bus (65) from Richmond to Surbiton, but these days you
have to change in Kingston, so Richmond to Esher is two buses and a train
(and sometimes a walk between the two bus stations in Kingston).
Other journeys offered include train Richmond to Hampton Wick, then bus to
Surbiton, the train to Esher.

I don't think it would be worth getting a slower train from Richmond just
so you can change at Vauxhall. All the OP has to do is get a fast train
from Richmond to Clapham Junction non-stop, get off go to platform 11 and
get his train to Esher.

Totally agree that train is by the far best way, but it is considerably
quicker to change at Clapham Junction - the non-stop service does it in
only 8-9 minutes (and doesn't stop at Vauxhall).

Clapham Junction can indeed be confusing, but there are plenty of staff
to ask. Normally, trains from Richmond come into platform 3 (or 4).
Those for Esher leave from 11.

I assume you mean Esher in Surrey? You have not mentioned what day or
time you wish to travel.

Bus is easy - 65 to Kingston and then a K3 to Esher Town Centre. This is
a short walk away from the railway station at Esher. Transport for
London passes are valid on both of these buses. There is also a 218 bus
from Kingston that goes past Esher station - it is not a TfL service so
you will need to buy a cash fare.

You could take a R68 from Richmond to Hampton Court and then connect to
a local bus down (513) to Esher or catch a train from there to Thames
Ditton and walk.

The R68 accepts TfL passes but the 513 does not so you'd pay a cash fare
on that. Note that like a lot of buses in Surrey the 513 is not very
frequent and does not run every day.

More local info on transport services in Surrey is available via this
link. There are timetables and maps and the information is of a good
quality.

A good route, because (IIRC) both services stop in Eden Street. But it
will be something like 30 minutes longer in each direction than taking
the train.

Another possibility is to take the train from Richmond to Kingston and
then pick up the K3 at Kingston station. Theoretically this shaves 14
minutes off the time each way - but it could be more, as the 65 is very
prone to delays.

Much depends on whether the OP wants the quickest or the cheapest route.

I somehow suspect the OP was asking for alternatives to the train
because he wishes to travel when the rail service is suspended for all
or part of the normal rail route and can't face the replacement buses.

I'd certainly go by train if that mode was running normally.

Default Local Transport from Richmond Tube Station to Esher National Rail Station

Hi,

Thanks to all of you for the help.

Actually I want to travell on 20th Feb i.e. on comming Monday and would
prefer the cheapest route to Grandstand & Exhibition Center, Esher,
Surry. When I searched on www.multimap.co.uk for this place, it has
shown me the nearest railway stataion is Esher.

Would this K3 bus go to "Grandstand & Exhibition Center" or do I need
to change for another bus to this place?

Will this help? http://www.sandown.co.uk/racecourse/directions.html I
assume you're going to the racecourse exhibition centre.

Sandown Park is virtually next to Esher station, there used to be
direct access to the course from the station at one time. It is a short
distance from Esher town centre however.
Depends on the time of day you wish to travel. If it is in the rush
hour the train is a better bet as the traffic around
Richmond/Kingston/Esher is chaotic and the schools are back next week.
buses are frequently very late running.
As Richmond tube and railway station are the same place. I would
suggest using NR Richmond-Clapham Junction then take a train to Esher.

Neill
