Welcome to Thameslink

We operate a rail service from Bedford in the north, via central London, to Brighton in the south. We also serve the London suburban area on the Wimbledon - Sutton - Carshalton line. There are two important airports on our route – London Luton and Gatwick. 

Until May 2005, a programme of construction works is being undertaken around St Pancras and King's Cross stations. This has caused major changes to Thameslink's cross London services.

We have created a dedicated website at www.travelbuddy.info to guide you through the temporary changes.
