Alternative routes and travel advice

The impact on your journey will depend on the particular services that you currently use to get to and from London Bridge and what alternatives exist. Travel advice is as follows:

  • Change the train you catch from your home station to go direct to your national rail destination. For example switching from a London Charing Cross service to a London Cannon Street service. This may involve shifting the time that you travel, but in many cases only by a few minutes.
  • If getting a different train from home is not possible, we advise you to change trains en route outside London, for example at Lewisham, Orpington, Sevenoaks or Hither Green, to get to your final destination
  • Look at the other options available at the London end of your journey, for example walking from your final station stop to get where you want to go. It's often quicker to walk between stations in and around London Bridge than many people think. The Thameslink Programme has produced walking maps to help you map out the options for you. You could also consider cycling or using the bus.
If you are unable to complete your journey by interchanging on National Rail services outside London, you may need to use TfL services, if you have a Travelcard you may choose to use other routes.

The accepted routes are:

  • Between London Bridge and Waterloo/Southwark on Jubilee Line and on bus services (services 381 and RV1)
  • Between London Bridge and Charing cross on Jubilee/Bakerloo/Northern Lines and on bus services (services RV1 and 15)
  • Between Cannon Street and Charing Cross/Embankment on District/Circle and on bus services (service 15)
  • Between Elephant and Castle and London Bridge on Northern Line and on bus services (service 35, 40, 133 & 343)
  • Between Blackfriars and London Bridge and on bus services (service 17 (Blackfriars North), 381 & RV1 (Blackfriars South)

Thameslink passengers from the south of London (with a ‘Thameslink only’ ticket), whose final destination is currently London Bridge should change at Elephant and Castle or Blackfriars for onward travel to London Bridge where tickets will be accepted on London Underground or eligible buses between Elephant and Castle and London Bridge and between Blackfriars and London Bridge. These recommended routes are shown here

Southern (and any permitted route) passengers who currently interchange onto National Rail services at London Bridge for travel to Charing Cross or Waterloo East should take London Underground or eligible bus services where their tickets will be accepted between London Bridge to Charing Cross or Waterloo/Southwark. These recommended routes are shown here

South West Trains passengers who currently interchange at Waterloo East for London Bridge should take London Underground or eligible bus services between London Bridge and London Waterloo / Southwark where their tickets will be accepted. These recommended routes are shown here
