On 11 November, the day of the 2023 Lord Mayor’s Show, the District, Circle and Jubilee lines will all be closed until 3pm.
The Northern and Central and Elizabeth lines remain open all day.
If you come to the Show via Bank or St Paul’s, or City Thameslink, then everything will be as normal but the stations may be busier than usual.
Barbican, Moorgate and Monument stations are out of action, and it will not be possible to come to return leg of the Show via Temple or Blackfriars, or to walk over the river from Southwark station.
All of those stations should be available for your journey home (if after 3pm), but you will need to come in by a different route.
You should also be aware that there are no buses into the City on show day; they have to turn back or go around the closed area.
If you normally come in on the District or Metropolitan line then you will probably have to make your way across to the Central or Northern line, by bus or other means.
Overland rails services are also very helpful here.
The TfL Journey Planner and TfL Go app know about line closures and will help you to find a good way around them.
