Revised timetable in place until further notice

From Monday 7 September 2020, there will be some changes to the timetable to support the start of the academic year, as we welcome more people back on our services.

What services are not operating?

The timetable has been designed to be as resilient as possible at a time when our staff are impacted by coronavirus, and to support the platform upgrades underway at Gatwick Airport railway station. Please note:

  • No Gatwick Express trains will operate, please use Southern and Thameslink services between London and Gatwick Airport which operate up to 16 times per hour
  • Southern services will not operate to/from Guildford, please use South Western Railway services

What changes will I see from 7 September?

Additional peak time services will run on the following routes:

  • Cambridge to London King’s Cross
  • Cambridge to Ely
  • Cambridge to King’s Lynn

There will be either additional or amended peak time services on the following routes:

  • London Victoria to South Croydon / East Grinstead
  • Uckfield to London Bridge
  • London Victoria to Gatwick Airport
  • Epsom Downs to London Victoria
  • Littlehampton to London Victoria
  • Redhill to Tonbridge
  • Littlehampton to Chichester / Portsmouth & Southsea
  • Horsham to Bognor Regis / Portsmouth & Southsea
  • Brighton to Portsmouth & Southsea
  • Eastbourne to Ashford International

Some services to/from London Bridge and Eastbourne via Lewes / Chichester via Horsham will continue to be served by red Gatwick Express branded trains, to enable Southern services to be made longer elsewhere on the network. Do check before you board as these may not stop at Gatwick Airport.
