Metallica at Twickenham Stadium
Fans attending the Metallica concert at Twickenham Stadium on 20
June are advised to plan travel in advance and allow extra time for
journeys as services will be busier than usual as this is Ascot
week. There is also planned RMT union industrial action from 18-22
June. We are working with South Western Railway who remain
committed to finding a solution that will help them build a better
railway for customers.
This action means there will be significant changes to the
normal timetable on every route, so please check your journey
before travelling. The extra trains South Western Railway will run
on the Waterloo to Reading route can be used to get to the concert.
There will also be extra trains from Twickenham to get customers
back to Waterloo after the concert.
Fans are advised to make their way to Twickenham Station as soon
as possible after the end of the concert for their return journey.
A queuing system will be in operation.
There is a dedicated section on the South Western Railway
website providing you information about the changes to the train
services so please visit the
website for further details.
