Southeastern Railways have announced major travel alterations from 24th December 2015 to 3rd January 2016 inclusive. These alterations are due to engineering works and will mean that there are no services from Charing Cross, Waterloo East, London Bridge or Cannon Street to Hastings. It would be possible to go via Ashford from Kings Cross/St.Pancras. There will be a service from Victoria to Hastings but this will take longer as there will be a replacement bus service at Three Bridges, south of Gatwick. This site will be updated with more detailed information and further details can be found at www.southesternrailways.co.uk
There is a coach service to Hastings from Victoria and it might be worth looking at their information — www.nationalexpress.com
Full details of these works were not available much earlier, so we can only apologise and update the information as regularly as possible. Hastings Borough Council website [www.visithastings.com] also gives travel information.
