Travel information for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee weekend

Railway open to passengers during Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee bank holiday weekend.

The vast majority of Britain’s railways will be open as usual over the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee bank holiday weekend, from June 2 to 5. There are no rail line closures at major London stations, meaning you can rely on the rail to reach the Queen’s milestone celebrations.

We carry out hundreds of projects during the holidays. Most of these will be maintenance work that will cause no disruption to you or freight services.

It is always advisable to check before traveling as a small number of routes will be impacted by the upgrade works.
