On our website, you'll be able to see whether your train is on time for almost every train route in the UK, which stations it's calling at, and much more. If you have our app, you'll also be able to see where your train is, whether it's left the previous stations on time, and we’ll even tell you if there are any other train services you can catch that will arrive earlier than the one you're looking at.
If you're looking to check departures and arrivals for each station, see live departures and arrivals.
This is a pretty common question. Our train time tool can show you if your train is on time or not. If it's delayed, we'll tell you what time it's due, and if it's been cancelled, we'll let you know when the next train is coming through and give you options to re-route your journey if there’s another way.
Although most UK train companies follow a standard Monday–Friday and weekend service timetable, there are sometimes alterations to these times that could affect your journey. Most trains in the UK, except special services to some airports and London's Night Tube, do not operate 24/7.
Most services across the country stop between around 01:00 and 05:00 each morning to let trains have a break, but it's quite easy to search for the first train of the day using our tool – simply type in your departure (from) and arrival (to) stations and choose a time within this morning window.
To search for the last train of the day, select a time late in the night and use the earlier or later toggles to scroll through to find the last train of the evening. If you're one of the unfortunate ones who's missed their last train, the tool will tell you when the first train leaves the next day.
Most train companies in the UK generally release their tickets and timetables around 1–3 months in advance, so you can search for your journey ahead of time. Make sure you check back again closer to the date of travel, as train timetables can sometimes change as it gets closer to the departure date.
