Royal Wedding travel advice

Whether you are planning to watch or avoid the parade check before you travel

WITH thousands expected to flock to London for the Royal Wedding on Friday and the weather due to take a turn for the worse travellers into London are being advised to plan their journeys.

While tube passengers can relax in the knowledge that Transport for London expect all lines to be running normally those wanting to avoid the crowds should consider their routes.

Drivers are advised to avoid the area completely if possible with 17 roads being closed (see below) from 6am along the procession route between Buckingham Palace and Parliament Square.

However the Congestion Charge will not apply in London due to the bank holiday.

Buses will be operating a Saturday service but will be subject to diversions between 5.30am and 8pm around the Westminster, Hyde Park, Piccadilly and Trafalgar Square areas with some routes terminating before their usual destination where necessary.

Extra staff will be on hand to offer advise.
