A Sunday transport to Harry Potter Studios issues?

Hello I was getting ready to book our tour. A Sunday 1st of Dec.

Does public transport run less on Sundays? Do they shut down routes for maintance on Sundays? Could this be a problem getting to the studios on a Sunday on time?

In NYC we almost missed our time at the 9/11 Memorial because of weekend work on the subway. Did not want history to repeat itself.

Thank you so much for your valuable insight.

Yes to a reduced Sunday service and yes to weekend engineering works.

Check www.tfl.gov.uk for planned engineering work (generally listed up to six months in advance).

I'd make certain of the tickets to the exhibition as they sell out.

Here's the tube and Overground planned engineering works schedule. For Sunday December 1 you're okay (those Overground closures are nowhere near the line to Watford Junction). This doesn't cover National Rail but you'll have a route to Watford Junction for the Studio tour.

No planned works on London Midland trains from London Euston to Watford Junction on 1 December. Check www.nationalrail.co.uk for times that will suit your needs.

It is a main line and so you would be very unlucky to have scheduled work on the line. There are other ways of getting there too so as long as you look it up first thing in the morning you will have time to rearrange i.e. get the tube instead or the train from clapham junction which is longwinded but doable if you absolutely have to.

Hey Kateoz! so nice to see you on the London forum. How are things in the big apple?

As you can see we are planning the nxt big peep adventure. Should be a brillant adventure.. The hipster teen peep and Diva tween peep are so excited but they are not so sure about the no texting for a week. (please let's not tell them about free wifi and other such things. what they don't know can't hurt them ...)
