Travel information

Planning to travel to Guy's Hospital by train between 23 and 31 August 2014?

From Saturday 23 to Sunday 31 August, there will be major engineering works to complete the next phase of building the new London Bridge station next to Guy’s Hospital.

Patients, relatives and staff who plan to travel by train during this time may find that their train does not stop at London Bridge and therefore they may need to take an alternative route.

For example, no First Capital Connect or Southern services will run to, through or from London Bridge station from 23-31 August.

Network Rail staff will be distributing information leaflets about the disruption from 1-3pm on Thursday 31 July near the main reception at Guy’s.
