Train timetable update

Published: 20 April 2022

Thameslink have updated their train timetable after evaluating their footfall and trains during and after the Covid-19 pandemic, due to more passenger demand, with more routes increasing in their frequency. These changes in the timetable will be effective from the 15th May 2022 for the summer. 

 Please check train times before starting your journey 



 Sevenoaks to London Blackfriars

Peak Hours Monday- Friday

The existing Sevenoaks to London Blackfriars service will be connected to Welwyn Garden City for the first time. Providing more direct cross-London services for stations such as Bat & Ball Station and our extended Darent Valley Line; running to the same timetable as before but extended from Blackfriars via St Pancras and Finsbury Park to Welwyn Garden City. 

This change will be most useful for local people wishing to connect to the main line at Kings Cross and St Pancras in peak times. For people who wish to use the new Elizabeth Line at Farringdon, this new timetable will also be useful as it will connect people travelling to and from North London.
