london train strike information

Your guide on what's happening with the trains, lately. 

Train, rail, and tube disruption has become the norm in London, with ASLEF unions, TFL and the RMT in continuous conversation over pay, working conditions job security, as strikes continue to roll out across the nation. With a city harder to navigate, we're sharing more on train strikes near you, and on major networks, as well as great suggestions for things to do nearby, and (coming soon) some hot takes on bus routes with the best of stop-offs for bars, restaurants and cosy pubs

Which London tube lines are striking?

No more London tube strikes are currently scheduled.

When are the London train strikes and what networks will be affected?

Update for July 2024: No train strikes are currently scheduled.

16 train companies are affected by ASLEF and RMT strikes, which affected services both in and out of the city. The lines most commonly involved:

Avanti West Coast, CrossCountry, East Midlands Railway, Great Western Railway, LNER, TransPennine Express, C2C (not involved in ASLEF), Greater Anglia, Gatwick Express, Great Northern, Southern, Thameslink, Southeastern, South Western Railway, Chiltern Railways, Northern Trains.

How long are strikes expected to last? 

Disruption is difficult to predict, and each network has their own expected level of service. We recommend checking each operator's website for the most up-to-date and accurate information available.

When it comes to train strikes overall, while ASLEF has backed a recent 5% pay rise, action is not over yet, so we expect services to see impacted behaviour for the coming months.
