If you’re heading to the United Kingdom this week and planning to take the train or London’s Underground to get around, be prepared for significant delays.
This week, Network Rail workers plan to strike on three days – Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. The London Underground will be experiencing a strike on Tuesday.

Half of Britain’s rail network is expected to shut down on strike days, but delays and chaos will likely affect train travel throughout the week.
According to National Rail, no passengers services will serve locations such as Penzance in Cornwall, Blackpool in Lancashire, Cheshire in Chester, and Holyhead in North Wales.

People who must travel this week are urged to “plan ahead” and prepare for substantial delays.
