Major route improvement work affecting Thameslink services over the Christmas and New Year period
Please plan ahead if you are travelling between 23 December 2017 and 1 January 2018 as improvement work as well as the normal service alterations over this period will mean that services on most routes will be amended.
Planning my journey
Full details of train and rail replacement bus services will be included in on-line journey planners from the beginning of October and you should use these to plan your specific journeys. Information is included in the ‘Buy tickets’ functionality on this website or by visiting nationalrail.co.uk and using the journey planner. During the Thameslink cross London and Sutton route closures, it may be easier for you to use local bus or Tube services. Please use the journey planner at tfl.gov.uk to plan these journeys.
