Changes to train times


Easter and Early May Bank Holiday 2019

Major engineering work is affecting journeys to and from London Euston on the West Coast main line. London Euston station is closed.

Travel either side of the Easter and Early May bank holiday, plan ahead for easier journeys and check the best days to travel:

  • Up to Thursday 18 April
  • From Tuesday 23 April up to Friday 3 May
  • From Tuesday 7 May

Fewer people travel by rail over bank holiday weekends, which is why rail companies carry out essential improvement and engineering work across the rail network during this time. This Easter weekend (19-22 April) and over the Early May Bank Holiday (4-6 May) Network Rail will be carrying out essential upgrades to the West Coast main line between London Euston and Edinburgh Waverley / Glasgow Central, to help deliver Britain's Railway Upgrade Plan and to prepare the way for HS2. 

Due to these essential works, no trains will be running to or from London Euston over these dates and train companies have made change to their services. Alternative services are available, however journeys will include changes, will be busier and some trains will be replace by buses.

The majority of train companies have confirmed services for Easter, and you can find the best value fare for your journey using our Cheapest Fare Finder. Information on advance tickets and when you can buy them are available here.
