The strike by Britain's rail union, will enter its next round in May and June 2023. The strikes will affect most train companies in Britain and will cause significant disruption across the rail network. Find the list of all affected dates and companies lower on this page.
However, even immediately before and after the strikes, it will take some time before all trains are operating as usual again.
Unfortunately, the strikes will be ongoing for the foreseeable future. So keep an eye on Omio to stay up to date or book your alternative trip by bus.
