Due to extremely high levels of demand, all Grand Central services across the weekend will be at full capacity.
Therefore, if you do not already have a ticket, seek alternative travel arrangements.
If you have a ticket but not a seat reservation, a queueing system will be in place at Sunderland (Saturday 25 May) and London Kings Cross (Monday 27 May) to control access to the platforms – please arrive in plenty of time and be prepared to potentially queue for a long period of time.
Grand Central staff will be available on the day to assist you and answer any queries.
We are using all trains available to us over the Bank Holiday weekend, so additional services will not be available.
Travelling from Sunderland – May 25
Passengers with seat reservations should use the South Concourse (Ticket Office entrance).
Passengers without seat reservations will be directed to join the queueing system. Please note that we cannot guarantee that you will depart on your preferred service.
Passengers who still need to collect tickets from the ticket office or ticket machines at Sunderland, please ensure you collect them before Saturday 25 May to avoid delays.
