Closures and service changes will start from December 22 meaning you still have time to plan if you are travelling in London during Christmas time.
On the TfL website, they share: “Between Friday 22 December 2023 and Tuesday 2 January 2024, planned work, closures and service changes may affect your journey.”

Buses in London will only be affected on certain days. To make sure you are prepared we have broken each day down so you can see how buses will be affected.
If a day has not been included, it means bus services are expected to run as normal, at the time of writing.
It is important to note that due to unplanned circumstances, plans from TfL can change.
Buses will run a Sunday service and there will be no night service with the 24-hour service ending at midnight.
London buses , including the Night bus, will not be running.
A Sunday service will run on all routes during the day as well as the night bus service.
