Thinking of a bank holiday trip by train from Charlton? Forget it

Thameslink class 700 trains
There are no trains from Charlton this weekend

Thinking of taking the train from Charlton this bank holiday weekend? Think again – there are no trains once again due to engineering work.

A half-hourly replacement bus will run between Lewisham and Plumstead on Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Full services will run from Lewisham and Blackheath. Thameslink services will run from Lewisham and Blackheath but will only run north as far as Blackfriars.

The Jubilee Line and Docklands Light Railway are running a full service.
