Selective tube station closures announced for the Jubilee weekend


Central London is going to be very busy over the Platinum Jubilee weekend, and a number of tube stations are going to be closing to manage the crowds. This is pretty routine for railway stations where they sometimes close a station or entrance that might be overwhelmed by crowds and direct people to another nearby station with the capacity to safely handle the crowds.

TfL has already been warning that services and central London roads may be busier than usual, particularly on the Saturday night and Sunday daytime at key interchanges, and has now confirmed which stations will be affected. Naturally, they are all around Buckingham Palace for the big party events that are taking place.

There will also be some road closures in central London, which are expected to cause travel disruption, delays and bus route changes.

If you’re heading to the Jubilee party, then be advised of the travel changes, and if not, maybe avoid the area entirely!
