Alternative routes and travel advice

The impact on your journey will depend on the particular services that you currently use to get to and from London Bridge and what alternatives exist. Travel advice is as detailed below:

  • Change the train you catch from your home station to go direct to your national rail destination. For example switching from a London Charing Cross service to a London Cannon Street service. This may involve shifting the time that you travel, but in many cases only by a few minutes
  • If getting a different train from home is not possible, we advise you to change trains en route outside London, for example at Lewisham, Orpington, Sevenoaks or Hither Green, to get to your final destination

Please note: Different arrangements apply between Saturday 26 August and Saturday 2 September. For more information on alternative routes and travel advice during this period, please visit this page
