Police are currently dealing with an incident, which is suspected to be a terror attack, at London Bridge. This, therefore, means that trains are currently unable to call at the station.

Disruption is expected to continue until further notice.

Trains will run through London Bridge station, but will not stop to release the doors. For your safety, please do not operate the alarms and try to alight the trains at London Bridge.

The whole area has been closed off by the Police, so at this time, Southeastern cannot offer any alternative travel, other than London Underground.

You can use your ticket between London terminals, at no extra cost, to try and help you complete your journey.

You can NOT travel to and from London Bridge, as no trains will call at this station until further notice.

Advice currently for passengers is to travel to London Blackfriars for Thameslink, London Victoria for Southern services or London Waterloo for South Western services to Clapham Junction, to connect with Southern services.

If travelling to Caterham and Tattenham Corner, travel to East Croydon via London Victoria or London Blackfriars.

If travelling to Uckfield, passengers should travel to Blackfriars for services to East Croydon and change there for your train to Uckfield.

If travelling to Crystal Palace or West Croydon. Passengers should travel by tube to Canada Water for London Overground services to these stations. Please note you will have to use Southwark or Bermondsey as London Bridge underground station is also closed.

  • My heart goes out to the families who have been affected. Even the police officers and emergency personnel who have also been affected. Dreadful on what has happened in Central London.

  • The police try and keep us safe; the Parole Board seem to have other ideas- the perpetrator should not have been walking the streets, innocent people should not have died or been injured.
