Travel on the day

 

Network Rail has engineering works planned for the day of the Marsden March, Sunday 19 March. As a result there will be no Southern or Thameslink trains to or from Sutton station, which may affect your travel to and from the event. A rail replacement bus service will be in operation.

What you should do

Review your arrangements for the day and plan your travel to and from the event.  We recommend allowing extra time to complete your journey to the start of your March in the morning and plan your return journey in advance. For further help with planning your journey you may want to consider:

Shuttle buses and taxis

We will be running a free shuttle service from the finish party to Sutton train station from where you can connect with a rail replacement bus as per the information above.  We will also be running a shuttle back to King George’s Playing Fields. 

If you choose to use a taxi to continue your journey from the finish party in Sutton,  please make sure to instruct your driver to pick you up from the hospital's Cotswold Road entrance. This will help us to avoid congestion in the hospital grounds.
