|Public transport providers are looking forward to welcoming passengers to the capital to mark the Coronation of Their Majesties King Charles III and Queen Camilla on Saturday 6 May. Public transport providers are working hard to keep journeys running smoothly over the coronation weekend, including running additional services and longer trains where possible. Services and stations are expected to be busy and queueing systems may be in place in some areas. Passengers should continue to check real-time travel information throughout their journeys, to take account of any short notice changes that may take place while they are en route.
To make sure that Londoners and visitors to the capital are able to get around safely and as easily as possible during 6-8 May, the Rail Delivery Group, Network Rail and Transport for London (TfL) are working closely together – along with the Government and other partners. Passengers will enjoy a warm welcome at Network Rail’s managed stations in London, which will be specially decorated for the occasion with entertainment and fun laid on.
Given the likely demand for public transport within London during this period, passengers may wish to consider walking to their final destinations within the capital. TfL will be running a normal service with no planned closures. Travel ambassadors will be on hand at National Rail, London Underground and bus stations to provide directions and assistance. There will be road closures in place and people should avoid driving in central London and use routes that avoid the area if they are not attending the events. Due to road closures, visitors exiting from London Victoria station on Coronation day may only be able to access the screening site at Hyde Park.
Coronation Concert in Windsor
Ticketholders attending the Coronation concert at Windsor on Sunday 7 May are urged to plan their journey to and from the concert in advance using the Transport for London and National Rail Enquiries websites and to check live travel updates via National Rail, their train operator and on the TfL Go app during the journey.
Please note that the concert in Windsor is for ticketholders only. All tickets to the concert have been allocated and access to the concert will be denied unless a valid ticket is held. There are no ceremonial events in Windsor for the Coronation.
Passengers travelling from London are advised to use South Western Railway services from London Waterloo to Windsor and Eton Riverside. Passengers travelling from the Midlands and the South West are advised to use GWR services from Reading, changing at Slough for Windsor and Eton Central. Both stations are around a 5-10 minute walk away from Windsor Castle.
Passengers should check important travel advice on the National Rail website ahead of time.
