No Stansted Express from Liverpool Street or airport trains from London Victoria over Easter
Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.
If you are heading to an airport this Easter you should double-check how you are getting there as a lot of public transport options are out of action. This includes the Picadilly Line, which we wrote about last week, which will be closed beyond Acton Town from 15th to 18th April.
It is not just Heathrow that is affected. You will also struggle to get to Gatwick or Stansted.
Heading to Stansted?
Stansted Express trains from Liverpool Street are suspended from 15th to 18th April between Waltham Cross and Stansted due to engineering works. More information is here.
Heading to Gatwick?
Trains between Victoria and Gatwick, including the Gatwick Express, have also been suspended between the 15th and 18th, again owing to engineering works. Details are here on the Gatwick Express site. Thameslink trains are still running via St Pancras, Farringdon, Blackfriars and London Bridge.
There is also substantial disruption to many other rail and London Underground routes, as well as the usual Bank Holiday traffic jams if the sun shows any signs of coming out. Going away in the UK isn’t going to be a walk in the park (unless you literally do that) either ….
