Planning your Journey

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

 

If you are unable to complete your journey by interchanging on National Rail services outside London, you may need to use TfL services. If you have a Travelcard you may use any route covered by your ticket. Otherwise, there are specific alternative routes. For full details click here.

  • Between London Cannon Street and Charing Cross/Embankment on the District/Circle lines and on bus 15 between Cannon Street and Charing Cross
  • Between Elephant & Castle and London Bridge on the Northern line and on buses 35, 40, 133 and 343 between Elephant & Castle and London Bridge
  • Between Blackfriars and London Bridge via Embankment and Waterloo and on buses 17 (from Blackfriars north entrance) or 381 and RV1 (from Blackfriars south entrance) between Blackfriars and London Bridge
  • Between Cannon Street and London Bridge on District/Circle/Northern lines
  • Between Cannon Street and London Bridge on bus services 17 and 521
  • Greenwich line passengers can use the DLR between Greenwich and Lewisham, changing there for a Southeastern service to London Bridge, or can use Southeastern services via Charlton

 

Thameslink passengers from the south of London (with a 'Thameslink only' ticket), whose final destination is currently London Bridge should change at Elephant & Castle or London Blackfriars for onward travel to London Bridge where tickets will be accepted on London Underground or eligible buses between Elephant & Castle and London Bridge and between Blackfriars and London Bridge.
