Face covering advice:

In line with government guidance, you will no longer be required by law to wear a face covering whilst travelling in England. However, please respect others and, unless exempt, wear a face covering in crowded spaces throughout your journey.

If you are travelling within Wales, you must continue to wear a face covering (unless exempt) when you're at stations and whilst on board the train, as it remains mandatory.

If you are using TfL (Transport for London) services for any part of your journey, it remains mandatory to wear a face covering (unless exempt).

Busy travel times advice:

Great Western Railway have created a handy guide to show how busy their most popular routes / trains have been. It is expected that as government restricted are relaxed, demand will grow, particularly to leisure destinations. This handy guide can be found here.
