Christmas 2020

We’ll be running train services across all our routes on most days over the festive period this year.

On Christmas Eve, late afternoon and evening services will be amended as we prepare for the two-day shutdown which applies across most of the UK national rail network.

There will be no Great Western Railway train services on either Friday 25 or Saturday 26 December.

However, there will be Heathrow Express trains running between London Paddington and Heathrow Airport on Boxing Day.

Trains on New Year’s Eve and on New Year’s Day will be significantly amended to cater for anticipated demand.

Rail improvement work will be taking place in the Bristol area as well as near Gatwick Airport.

Please note there is also rail improvement work affecting South Western Railway services between London Waterloo and Clapham Junction as well as Basingstoke and Salisbury.
