All the TfL and London Underground closures this Bank Holiday weekend

2

If the baking hot Easter weekend wasn’t enough, Londoners are being treated to another long bank holiday weekend with the early May holiday on Monday. Admittedly the weather is set to be slightly disappointing compared to the bright sunshine of the last fortnight, but that won’t stop thousands of people massing on the capital for some fun.

With Tube strikes and events around London, there are going to be a few delays, diversions, and detours for everyone to think about. Luckily it’s nothing too stressful, with a largely normal service running across the whole London Underground network in the day time.

If you are looking for a flight out of Gatwick though, then you better start planning now because there is no Gatwick Express or Southern rail to the popular airport. You will have to use Thameslink instead. Of course the really annoying Northern Line work is still going on the Bank branch to London Bridge so make sure you can get there by other means.
