Important alert

A normal off peak Gatwick Express and Thameslink service will resume on Monday 30 November

The amended off peak service trialled from 23-27 November did provide the network with some punctuality benefits. However, with the leaf fall season now drawing to a close, and train operating conditions improving, we will return to our normal off peak timetable from Monday 30 November, in advance of the permanent timetable change on Sunday 13 December.

The new timetable from 13 December includes the retention of four non-stop Gatwick Express services each hour between Gatwick Airport and London Victoria, two of which will be extended to Brighton in the off peak. New Thameslink & Southern timetables will also come into operation on 13 December. For more information go to:

Major changes to Southern and Gatwick Express services from 10pm on 24th December to 4am on 4th January

A major programme of improvement work by Network Rail in south London this Christmas means that Southern and Gatwick Express services will be disrupted over the holiday period.

The project at Purley, which replaces a major railway junction, will sever the main line meaning major changes to trains to Gatwick Airport from London, and Coastal services to London from 10pm on Christmas Eve until 4am on Monday 4th January. As a result, during this period there will be no trains between South Croydon and Redhill, and the Gatwick Express service will be suspended.

For details of your options, please visit our Christmas 2015 page.
