London Tube Strikes from Fri 26 Nov

If any one is planning to come to London you may wish to be aware than a series of strikes have been planned over November and December. First one takes effect from this Friday - info here

tfl.gov.uk/campaign/tube-strike


Hopefully talks will avoid strikes but its maybe best, at this stage, to plan around expected severe disputation if you can


Current dates we 28 Nov: (I will update if changed)

Planned strike action
8.30pm 27 November 4.29am 28 November Central and Victoria.
8.30pm 3 December 4.29am 4 December Central and Victoria.
8.30pm 4 December 4.29am 5 December Central and Victoria.
8.30pm 10 December 4.29am 11 December Central and Victoria.
8.30pm 11 December 4.29am 12 December Central and Victoria.
8.30pm 17 December 4.29am 18 December Central and Victoria.
4.30am 18 December 4.29am 19 December Central, Jubilee, Northern, Piccadilly and Victoria.

We are also in London from 11th to 12th December. Luckily I've planned so we can walk as staying at the Premier Inn at Kings Cross and we can walk to the theatre , I've booked meals at German Gymnasium and Dishoom which aren't far to walk to.

Tha ks for flagging this. I looked at the dates and doesn't affect me. I visit between Christmas and New year. Let's hope they don't strike that week 🙄
Off to look up route closures now. 😒

The strike isnt about pay , it's the change to their contracts that mean they will now be required to work nights .
Nationally tube drivers are down the league for train driver pay
