News flash: Christmas is now under three weeks away!

If you are coming to London to celebrate the festive season, here is a brief guide to public transport services across the city during Christmas and New Year.  A warning, services are limited and of course, subject to change due to adverse weather, so if you are a bit apprehensive about relying on public transport to get you to that all important flight or Christmas party, then give us a call on 020 3174 2122 and book one of our reliable, luxury, chauffeur driven cars to transport you and your family to where you need to go.

Gatwick and Heathrow Express

Major improvements to the Gatwick Express line mean there will be no services from  10.00pm, Thursday 24 December 2015 until 4.00am, Monday 4 January 2016.  The Heathrow Express will not be running any services on Christmas Day or Boxing Day.  Due to planned engineering works on the line, service between Christmas Eve and 3 January will also be disrupted.

London Underground

There are no tubes on Christmas Day.  Services on many lines will be disrupted due to planned engineering works, and a Saturday and Sunday service (therefore, not as frequent) will operate until 2 January 2016.


There will be no service on Christmas Day.  Saturday and Sunday timetables will operate every day up to 2 January, apart from Tuesday, 29 December and Wednesday, 30 December.


No night buses will run from around midnight on Christmas Eve, and there will be no bus service on Christmas Day. Apart from New Year’s Eve, there will be a Saturday or Sunday service running until 2 January 2016.
