There will be no trains to or from London King’s Cross, or St Pancras International via Finsbury Park on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 November 2020.

Network Rail and train operators on the East Coast Main Line are advising passengers not to travel to or from London on these days.

LNER services to and from the north will start and finish at Peterborough.

Rail replacement coaches will run between Peterborough and Bedford, where passengers can use Thameslink or East Midlands Railway services to and from London St Pancras.

Great Northern and Thameslink services to and from Cambridge and Peterborough will start and finish at Potters Bar.

Limited replacement bus services will run between Potters Bar and St Albans, where passengers can connect with Thameslink services to and from London St Pancras; and between Potters Bar and Oakwood, where passengers can connect with London Underground services to and from central London.  Potters Bar station and these alternative arrangements both offer step-free accessibility.
