Assisted Travel:

We want everyone to travel with confidence. That is why, if you are planning on travelling on national rail services, you can request an assistance booking in advance - now up to 2 hours before your journey is due to start, any time of the day. For more information about Passenger Assist and how to request an assistance booking via Passenger Assist, please click here.

London Overground also offers a Turn-up-and-go service so you can travel without making a booking. Please speak to a member of staff on arrival at the station - we recommend arriving at least 10 minutes before the train you wish to take.
