This Christmas, between Saturday 23 December and Monday 1 January 2018 inclusive, there will be closures and changes to services as the Thameslink Programme continues to rebuild London Bridge station and the surrounding railway.
During this time there will be fewer trains into London and your journey will take longer, especially during the three working days (27th -29th December).
From Saturday 23 December until Monday 1 January 2018, there will be changes to rail services across London and the south-east while Network Rail continues to transform north-south travel through London as part of the Thameslink Programme.
Southeastern, Thameslink, Gatwick Express and Southern services will all be affected as well as other train operators, with no National Rail services running on Christmas Day or Boxing Day.
Southeastern services will not run to or from Cannon Street, Charing Cross, Waterloo East, London Bridge, Deptford, Greenwich, Maze Hill, Westcombe Park, New Cross and St Johns for the entire period of 23 December to 1 January.
Thameslink services will terminate at St Pancras from the north and terminate at Blackfriars from the south from 23 December to 1 January. There will be no Thameslink service at either City Thameslink or Farringdon.
A reduced Southern service will operate to and from London Bridge from 23 December to 1 January. There will be no train service at Redhill.
A reduced timetable will run between Victoria and Gatwick Airport from 23 December to 1 January,
with no trains at all on Christmas Day or Boxing Day, although a replacement bus service will be available on Boxing Day. Please allow extra time for your journey.
