Alternative routes and travel advice

The impact on your journey will depend on the particular services that you currently use to get to and from London Bridge and what alternatives exist. Travel advice is as detailed below:

  • If getting a different train from home is not possible, we advise you to change trains en route outside London, for example at Lewisham, Orpington, Sevenoaks or Hither Green, to get to your final destination

 

If you are unable to complete your journey by interchanging on National Rail services outside London, you may need to use TfL services. If you have a Travelcard you may use any route covered by your ticket. Otherwise, there are specific alternative routes. For full details click here.
