Railway open for passengers during Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee bank holiday weekend.
The vast majority of Britain’s railway will be open as usual during The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee bank holiday weekend, from 2 to 5 June. There are no railway line closures into any of the major London stations, meaning you can rely on the railway to join The Queen’s landmark celebrations.
We're delivering hundreds of projects over the bank holiday. Most of these will be maintenance works that will cause no disruption to you or freight services.
You’re still advised to check before you travel as a small number of routes will be impacted by upgrade works.
