Bonfire night trains...

To my horror I have to travel home to Lewes from London on the train at about 5 on Bonfire Night. On a scale of 1 to 10 where 5 is the average commuter train headache, can anyone give me a hint how awful this is likely to be? I'm assuming getting on the train in London isn't a problem?
thanks for any help

I think the worst bit will be getting off the train and getting to your house (although that does rather depend on where you live, I suppose).
I wouldn't fancy trying to walk from the station to Malling or Wallands and having to fight my way through the crowds. And if you live on one of the "green routes", it might be an idea to have ID with your address on it, so they let you through.

I'd also check at the station which trains are running. But catch the 0523 from Lindon Bridge and you should be okay. Just don't walk any of the many routes home !!! And obviously if you park your car in the station car park - well forget it until 2am!

As soon as the light fades in Lewes on the 5th the chaos can begin.

The mail train 05:23 from Lindon Bridge calling @ Trumpton in the morning. Of course there is the 17:23 from the Big Smoke in the evening. PS don't walk any/many routes home get a sedan chair.

Just don't do it. Take a half day, at least.

I pay a lot of money to travel from Polegate to London daily; and hope for a seat on the hour+ journey home.
Could Southern make arrangements for some trains NOT to stop at Lewes on the 5th?

You're absolutely right Fat C. It's the 1723 from London Bridge. And I meant walking home avoiding the main procession routes. Where is Trumpton ?

Trumpton was inspired by Plumpton where a real life farce is being played out. Just weaving a bit of local news in

Yea, What a farce that is but isn't the Queens Highway being blocked?

Just a note to thank you all for the useful advice. What an excellent resource this is.
