LC that is amazing that the longer journey to Ipswich is cheaper than going direct, we do have a very strange public transport system in this country lol

About half an hour plus transfer times. Bakerloo Line to Baker Street and then Jubilee Line to London Bridge. Charlton is about 15 minutes out of London Bridge with 6 trains leaving per hour on a Saturday. You should easily do it within 45 minutes.
 
As explained earlier in the season, book a return ticket on Trainline from Plymouth to Ipswich and with a Railcard you will find tickets each way for £18.20 (Without a Railcard £27.60)

The 10.13 train from Plymouth gets into Paddington at 13.29 (If you want to get there earlier, the 06.55 gets into London at 10.08 for the same price. Trains from Plymouth between 08.00 and 09.30 are showing as more expensive)

For the return journey, book your ticket from Ipswich on the 16.41 train so that you are booked on the 19.04 Paddington to Plymouth service.

Of course, the trains between Liverpool Street and Ipswich will just have to go without you but booking this route and only travelling part of it between Plymouth and Paddington, makes it cheaper. It's a strange world.

I'm working on a trip to Burnley on the same day. Got that down to £129 BUT involves two nights in Premier Inns for another £160 :(
That's astonishing!! Thank you.

Charlton is within the Ultra Low Emission Zone and Low Emission Zone so a charge of £12.50 will need to be paid if you're driving.
You can check if your car is exempt in the link below but roughly petrol cars registered after 2005 and diesel cars registered after 2015 do not pay.

If you are driving to the ground tomorrow, parking is horrendous, however the awaygames guide does provide some free reasonable options I've used before, around 15 mins walk :

Matchday parking at The Valley on matchday is restricted to permit holders only, and parking around the stadium itself is restricted due to a residents parking scheme. However, there are some street parking options slightly further out.
We’ve compiled a list of car parks, below, near to The Valley for hassle free parking while you’re at the match.
Car ParkSat NavCostDistance to GroundDescription
Westmoor Street (street parking)SE7 8NQFree1.0kmAround a 10-15 minute walk from The Valley is street parking on Westmoor Street, though this can get busy so getting there early is advisable. Cars are left at your own risk.
Eastmoor Street (street parking)SE7 8LWFree1.0kmEastmoor Street is another street parking option for visiting supporters, which is around a 10-15 minute walk from the stadium. This area is not patrolled so cars are left at your own risk.
Warspite Road (street parking)SE18 5NUFree1.2kmWarspite Road has some available street parking on matchday, but arriving early is advisable. Cars are parked at your own risk.
Ruston Road (street parking)SE18 5QXFree1.3kmThe other option within a 15 minute walk to The Valley is on Ruston Road. Again, this street parking is not patrolled and so parking here is at your own risk.

Probably the easiest way using public transport is to get the Jubilee line to North Greenwich and then get a bus from outside the station, choice of the following routes 161, 472 or 486. Much more frequent service than using the train from London Bridge.
It is a 25 minute walk from North Greenwich station if you like a bit of exercise and a couple of pubs along the route plus a few fast food outlets.
