Coming to London for Christmas or New Year? Tube strike 26 December confirmed

Unfortunatly one of the Tube Unions has called a strike for 26 December as they don’t like how much they get paid for working on a Public Holiday. The High Court refused the application from Transport for London to stop the strike but the Court has failed to publish its reasons.

It seems therefore, that the strike will be going ahead with much disruption to travellers possible.

BBC Report – . TfL’s side of the story –

As it is TfL were running a reduced service that day. Full details of what is running and when over the Holiday period are available at –

Perhaps most shockingly for our US Friends – LU said a pay agreement with Tube workers meant drivers have 43 days’ annual leave which means they have to work some public holidays, including Boxing Day.


  1. FYI

    You may have seen a recent report on BBC London television news stating that Gatwick Express services will not run because of strike action on Boxing Day,
    This is incorrect. Tube services will be affected because of industrial action by ASLEF Tube drivers, but this does not extend to Gatwick Express services.
    Gatwick Express services will run on Boxing Day, Monday 26 December as stated in our Christmas and New Year services web page.
