Chiltern Railways has announced that this year, for the first time, it is opening part of its route on Boxing Day. Trains will run between Bicester North and London Marylebone so local residents can hit the sales, head to a football match or take in everything London has to offer over Christmas.
The open stations are:
Bicester North > Haddenham & Thame Parkway > Princes Risborough > High Wycombe > Beaconsfield > Gerrards Cross > Wembley Stadium > London Marylebone.
Now there's a route to London on Boxing Day so no need to panic if you want to go to the match, the sales or see the London sights.
