Service alterations

Amended weekday Southern and Gatwick Express services until further notice

In order to give you more certainty for your journey and enable you to better plan, Southern and Gatwick Express have implemented an amended timetable on Mondays to Fridays. They plan to operate the revised timetable until train crew availability returns to normal.

To check your journey for travel up to and including Friday 5 August, please use the National Rail Enquiries real-time Journey Planner.

The timetables, details of the routes affected, and alternative travel options are available here.

The key changes are

  • No services on the West London route (East Croydon - Clapham Junction - Watford Junction - Milton Keynes Central)
  • Buses replace most trains between Lewes and Seaford
  • Revised services on many other routes

A map showing the alterations is available here.

If your journey is delayed by more than 30 minutes during the amended timetable, you will be able to claim compensation against trains cancelled in advance or against delays experienced on the day.
