Transport for London (TfL) says it is looking forward to welcoming Londoners and visitors to the capital to mark the coronation of King Charles III and Queen Camilla on Saturday 6 May. The organisation advises that on the day of the coronation, all of its public transport network will be running with no planned closures, but expects services to be very busy, particularly during the day on Saturday at key transport interchanges. Due to road closures, some bus routes in the Westminster area will be diverted or will stop short of their destination. TfL recommends that customers plan ahead and allow more time for their journeys, and has set up a dedicated webpage for the coronation weekend to help travellers plan their journeys.

London’s Transport Commissioner Andy Lord said: “We are delighted that London is hosting ceremonial events for the coronation of Their Majesties King Charles III and Queen Camilla, and look forward to welcoming visitors and Londoners alike onto the transport network for this historic occasion. We expect central London to be very busy and the large-scale events will mean road closures in central London, so I’d advise people to check before they travel. I’d also encourage Londoners and those visiting to mark the celebrations to make the most of the public transport options, as there are no planned closures.”
