Drive up. Park up. Take off
One of the quickest and smoothest ways to get to and from London is by train, from the modern, purpose-built station just a two minute walk from the terminal. With up to eight services every hour during peak time, and easy connections to the tube network, you’ll be whisked into the City in under an hour, and to Stratford in even less.
Passengers travelling to/from London Euston Station
On the following weekends, there will be no trains to, or from London Euston whilst Network Rail carry out vital improvement work at Wembley, part of Britain’s Railway Upgrade Plan. This will also have an impact on their West Coast main line services.
- 18-19 August
- 25-27 August

Network Rail are asking people to try and avoid travel on those days where possible. Services will be busier, take longer and there will be diversions. Queuing systems will be in place at some stations, and bus replacements may also be used.
Passengers should visit www.nationalrail.co.uk/westcoast or contact their train operators for further information.
