Transport in London over Christmas and New Year

Your guide to reduced transport timetables and service disruptions across the 2015 festive season

© Abigail Lelliott

Getting around during the festive season can be challenging thanks to reduced timetables on the tube, buses and railways. Fortunately, Time Out is here to help smooth the way.

Each service (and each tube line) now also has a Twitter account, which is a good way to keep up with closures and disruptions. Find the ones you're interested on TfL's social media page.

We can't predict the weather, obviously, so note that information may be subject to change due to adverse conditions. Check directly with your transport provider before travelling.

NOTE: We will update this page with 2015 information as it's announced.

Wow! I'm impressed, I must say. Very rarely do I come across a blog that's both informative and entertaining, Any attractive site design needs eye catching texture, so it’s very useful. Managed IT Services

I do agreed with your getting around Festival season is a big worry as places remains so crowded. Last year my uncle was stuck in such situations while he just lost some from us. He is so olde man. It was a big worry for all of us. And we can’t enjoy our trip, that we were plan for our Christmas vocations. It was totally spoiled for me. But I will highly recommend to all visitor don’t ever use some local ways. Now whenever I plan my journey just for a suitable option that provides me pre-hand arrangements. Uff..... That time was so incredible. Nowadays I had just came back from my http://getbustours.com/1-day-boston-to-newyork-city-tour.html with my family once again. Uncle was still with us but thank God we were already facilitating with all required arrangements. We really had a great and pleasantly remarkable time.

Why are ALL these dates wrong? Every single one should be on a different day of the week from the one given! I'd mistrust any of the information here if the author can't even get this right!

On weekdays generally speaking the tube is usually open from about 05:30 - 00:00/00:30 (depending on the station). It's not clear from this article exactly what the operating times will be on New Years Eve & New Years day - if there's free travel until 4.30am then does that mean the tube closes as 4.30am and reopens at 5:30am?

This year, for the first time, Chiltern Railways have taken the decision to run a train service on Boxing Day. Trains will run between Bicester North and London Marylebone to allow customers to hit the sales, head to a football match or take in everything London has to offer over Christmas.

Thank goodness for Time Out online. Quick, easy and all the relevant information on most transport services in one fell swoop with the curious exception of Heathrow Express but nonetheless important information concisely compiled, marvellous! If only Transport For London had this information on their home page too. Well done and Happy Christmas to you all.
