Weekend London Travel Information

Here is our weekly travel update to help you get around London this weekend. Most of the network will be open with services running as normal, but please check if any of the following affect you.

Potential Tube strike
The ASLEF, RMT, Unite and TSSA unions are currently planning strike action next week, affecting London Underground. If this goes ahead, there will be no Tube service from late afternoon on Wednesday 8 July and no Tube service at all on Thursday 9 July. All other public transport services and roads would, of course, be much busier than usual.

Ryanair operates a non stop flights from Dublin to Malta 3 times a week on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. When you get to the Malta International Airport you can either travel by bus or book a white taxi. These can be a bit too expensive. Greenr Cabs Malta offer a fixed rate from the airport to anywhere in Malta. You can also book your taxi in advance online. The other option would be to hire a car. The cost per day depends on the season, but will not cost more than €35 daily in Summer. Parties in london with http://stripandthecity.co.uk all night long
