If you are coming to the venue to enjoy the Stitch Festival this weekend, please take note of our advice for those travelling to London Kings Cross with northern train services.

Due to upgrades to the East Coast mainline, which runs into London Kings Cross, there will be changes to the service over the weekend of Saturday 29th February and Sunday 1st March.

In the first instance, should you be arriving from the North of England via the East Coast mainline and LNER services, we advise that you check if your journey is affected. You can do this on the National Rail Journey Planner.

London Underground services will have minor line closures; however North London underground lines will be operating as usual. You can find information on which lines are affected on the TFL site. To plan your journey on the London Underground head to their journey planner.

If you are coming to the venue this weekend from the East Coast mainline services from St Neots to London Kings Cross will be replaced by replacement bus services and are expected to be busy.

ThamesLink services are operating from Bedford Flitwick Harlington Leagrave Luton Luton Airport Parkway Harpenden St Albans City into London St Pancras. Bedford will be connected from St Neots with an LNER replacement bus service and limited replacement bus services will also run between:

  • Letchworth Garden City and Luton Airport Parkway (for Thameslink services to and from London)
