When can I travel?

  • Weekdays – travel on any of our trains leaving after 0930, unless your journey is wholly within the green shaded area on our map, in which case you can travel at any time. In the evening, you’ll need to avoid our busiest time from London Euston; between 1700 and 1900.
  • Saturdays - if you’re travelling from these stations: Crewe, Alsager, Kidsgrove, Stoke-on-Trent, Stone, Stafford, Rugeley Trent Valley, Lichfield Trent Valley, Tamworth, Atherstone, Nuneaton, avoid trains scheduled to arrive into London Euston before 1300 (feel free to travel via Birmingham/Coventry though).
  • Sundays – travel on any of our trains at any time.
  • 14, 15, 16, 21, 22, 23 February – major improvement works take place on the Euston line, a bus service will be running on Saturdays & Sundays with greatly extended journey times, Great Escape tickets will be valid, but we advise that you do not travel unless absolutely necessary. As well, on the Mondays, fewer trains will run than normal between Northampton and London. Please note: The closure on the Euston Line has now been cancelled. London Midland will be running a special train timetable on these dates. For more information please click here.
