The London Overground is traditionally closed on Boxing Day, but this year, some of it will be running a service.

Services on the Overground will operate from Highbury & Islington to West Croydon and Clapham Junction to Hackney Wick,

Clapham Junction services wont run all the way on Boxing Day due to Network Rail engineering work between Stratford and Hackney Wick – although they haven’t told the TfL website that yet.

As Boxing Day is a Bank Holiday off peak fares will operate all day.

A rough mock-up of what the Overground map will look like on Boxing Day

Although they intend to open the line on Boxing Day in the future as well, due to the need for Network Rail to undertake maintenance work, much of which is done during quieter periods such as the festive period, London Overground services on Boxing Day may vary slightly each year.

As usual, with the exception of the cycle hire service and Victoria Coach Station, no TfL services – trains, buses or dangleways will be running on Christmas Day.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
