Get around London and survive the Jubilee Weekend I: Transport

ImageAfter months of warnings and preparations…The Diamond Jubilee weekend is around the corner, really. London will not spare any expense between 2nd and 5th of June to celebrate the Queen’s 60 years as Monarch.

However, you can expect road and bridge closures across central London and public transport will be busier than usual. Friends at TFL advise you to:

  • Avoid travelling through central London if you’re not attending an event, particularly on Sunday 3 June
  • Visit National Rail to plan your journey into and out of London 
  • Buy travel tickets in advance to save time and avoid queues
  • Check live traffic news and live travel news for real-time updates
  • If you plan to use Barclays Cycle Hire, check the status of docking stations before you travel

There will be several road closures over the weekend. Don’t drive into London unless you have to.

Plan your journey in advance, check live traffic news or follow us on Twitter @TfLTrafficNews for real-time traffic updates.

A number of Royal Parks roads are closed over the coming weeks so the Diamond Jubilee Concert venue can be built. For more details visit the Department for Culture, Media and Sport website  or the Royal Parks website for more information.

On principle, the majority of services will be operating as normal over the Diamond Jubilee weekend. The Richmond to Willesden Junction and South Tottenham to Barking sections of the line will not operate due to engineering work.

If you are travelling to any of the planned events (there are hundreds!!), it pays off to visit the Travelling to Diamond Jubilee eventspage for travel advice related to the following events:

Chapeau!
