Christmas and New Year services
Major changes to train services over Christmas & New Year
Gatwick Express services will not run between Wednesday 25 December and Wednesday 1 January inclusive.
The revised service will allow Network Rail to undertake vital improvement work at three locations on the network - replacing a major rail junction near Purley (north of Gatwick), upgrading signalling at Victoria and working on a new platform at Gatwick Airport station.
We apologise for the inconvenience caused while these improvements are made.
However, Southern (which operates Gatwick Express) will run a revised train and bus replacement service.
Friday 27 Dec - Wednesday 1 Jan
Following a landslip at Ockley near Dorking, Southern is not able to run the planned direct train service between London Victoria and Gatwick Airport. However, it is operating train services between London Victoria and East Grinstead with bus connections to/from the airport. This will take at least 90 minutes.
Thursday 2 Jan
Gatwick Express services will run as normal.
