Christmas travel

It’s best to travel by Monday 23 December.

From Sunday 15 December 2019, the times of our trains will change. We’ll run more services on key routes and many journeys will be faster.

Find out more here.

To support these improvements, Network Rail will be working on several projects this Christmas. So, we need to make some changes to the way you travel with us.
