Platinum Jubilee: How to get around London UK News

But for the capital, celebrations and strikes on the London Underground mean there will likely be disruption to travel in the area.

However, Transport for London said all of its public transport will operate as normal and no planned closures are expected.

But the celebrations are expected to be very popular, so roads and transport are expected to be much busier than normal over the weekend, meaning there could be short-term safety measures in place.

How to get around London during the Platinum Jubilee:

London Underground:

Tube and train services are expected to operate as normal over the Bank Holiday weekend,

The busiest times will be Saturday evening after the BBC concert and other events, and Sunday during the day.

If you go to Bond Street, King’s Cross St Pancras and Green Park you can expect them to be much busier than normal.

Although there are strikes at Euston and Green Park stations, they will still be open.

The buses:

All buses are expected to operate on their normal timetables, however, some bus routes in central London will be diverted or shortened due to road closures.


For all keen cyclists, you will need to be extra careful when traveling through London, due to busy roads.

But there are a number of security measures at events, so at times you may not be able to bring a bike with you if you attend the event.

There are also roads and cycle paths on Constitution Hill next to Green Park which is temporarily closed until the end of the Jubilee celebrations in mid-June.

However, you can ride your bike through Green Park instead.


TfL advises avoiding driving in central London if possible as there will be road closures and delays are likely.

With days before the bank holiday, overnight and off-peak road closures are required in central London ahead of the events.
