Getting Around London at Christmas

Transport for London this Christmas

Getting Around London at Christmas London Theatre BreaksIf you are thinking of heading to London this Christmas I thought you might like to know about what services Transport for London will be laying on to help your movements around this great capital of ours sop that you don’t get stuck when the train drivers head home to spend Christmas day with their families.

The full information will be available closer to Christmas  but a run down of the main changes to their services is as follows

Christmas Eve, 24 December ‑ A reduced weekday service will operate across the Tube network until 20:00. Last trains will be earlier than usual. Buses will run until just after midnight.

Christmas Day, 25 December ‑ There will be no service on the entire network.

Boxing Day, 26 December ‑ A reduced service will operate on most of the network; there will be no service on London Overground.

New Year’s Eve, 31 December ‑ Free travel will be provided on most of our services from 23:45 until 04:30. From around 17:00 central London roads will close to prepare for celebrations so buses will gradually be withdrawn.

New Year’s Day, 1 January ‑ A reduced service will operate on most of the network.

I hope that helps and, wherever you go and whatever you plan to do this Christmas and New Year, I hope that you get there safely and enjoy yourselves.

Merry Christmas Everyone!
