As with other years, Chiltern Railways will be running a festive timetable between 23 December and the 2 January.  

We do this so we can best meet the needs for those travelling during this period.  We will also have additional helpers at stations, should you need any extra assistance. 

  • Please note, during the festive period there will be no ticket restrictions.  This means that Off Peak and Super Off Peak will be valid all day.  However, if you have an Advance ticket, these restrictions will remain in place for the ticket you have purchased.  
  • Car parking at our stations will also be charged at off-peak prices all day until 2nd January.
