Central London is going to be very busy over the Platinum Jubilee weekend, and a number of tube stations are going to be closing to manage the crowds. This is pretty routine for railway stations where they sometimes close a station or entrance that might be overwhelmed by crowds and direct people to another nearby station with the capacity to safely handle the crowds.

TfL has already been warning that services and central London roads may be busier than usual, particularly on the Saturday night and Sunday daytime at key interchanges, and has now confirmed which stations will be affected. Naturally, they are all around Buckingham Palace for the big party events that are taking place.

There will also be some road closures in central London, which are expected to cause travel disruption, delays and bus route changes.

If you’re heading to the Jubilee party, then be advised of the travel changes, and if not, maybe avoid the area entirely!

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.

    Could anyone explain why it makes sense to close stations during an expected peak travel time? I trust the engineers at TfL know what they’re doing, but wouldn’t this just make the other stations that are busy on normal weekends even more crowded?

      Having large amounts of people walk to other stations rather than try and jam into the closest one evens out the flow of arrivals at the alternatives because people walk at different paces.

      It’s easier to manage a steady stream of people than a huge influx.

      TFL have decades of experience in doing this for large events from the NYE fireworks to the London Marathon and sports and other larger spectator led events.
