From London Charing Cross to Hastings

TOC(s) affected

Engineering work is taking place between Tunbridge Wells and West St Leonards, closing the lines.

As a result of this, the 22:45 and 23:45 London Charing Cross to Hastings services will be replaced by buses between Tunbridge Wells and Hastings.

Two buses will run in place of each service; one calling at all stations and one calling at Wadhurst, Battle and St Leonards Warrior Square only.

Coaches do not have access to Crowhurst station, so a mini bus will run from Battle to Crowhurst.

Check before you travel:

You can plan your journey using the National Rail Enquiries Journey Planner

You can find the location of your bus replacement by checking station signs or by searching for your station on our station information pages


Non folding bicycles are not allowed on rail replacement bus services at any time. Folding bicycles are allowed if fully folded. For more information, please see here.
