Travelling during the Diamond Jubilee
To avoid delays, plan your journey in advance and check before you travel.
You can expect road and bridge closures across central London and public transport will be busier than usual. We 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.
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.
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.
