If you’re planning an weekend break out of London via Euston station this Easter, think of a different place to visit.
Significant work along the route from London Euston to Glasgow — the West Coast Main Line — will mean closures of the line at London Euston, and also near Preston and Glasgow.
As a result, there will be no trains running to or from London Euston station from Friday 19 April to Monday 22 April.
In addition, replacing two bridges and renewing the track will mean no trains running to or from London Fenchurch Street. Instead, services will be diverted to and from London Liverpool Street station from Friday 19 to Monday 22 April and buses replacing trains between Barking and Aldgate East.
The full list of National Rail’s Easter engineering works is here.
The London roundup is:
On Good Friday, Easter Sunday and Easter Monday:
On Easter Saturday:

London Northwestern Railway
South Western Railway
