    Rubbish trains at the weekend until 2012 :(

    by graeme83 Written Mar 17, 2010

    Please note that until 2012, for essential Thameslink Programme engineering work, the route between St Pancras International and London Bridge/Herne Hill will be closed at the following times:

    * All day on most Saturdays and Sundays (see below for a list of Saturdays and Sundays that services will operate)
    * Between 2230 and 0430 (overnight) on Mondays to Fridays

    On the following days, Thameslink route limited stop services between London and Bedford will operate from the high-level platforms (platforms 1-4), at St Pancras International while the all-stations services to/from Luton will go no further south than Kentish Town*.

    * Sunday, 14 March
    * Sunday, 28 March

    * stopping services will terminate and start from Kentish Town between approximately 0630-1930 on Saturdays and approximately 0930-1930 on Sundays; outside these hours they will also run to and from the high-level platforms (platforms 1-4), at St Pancras International.

    Customers requiring trains that start from/terminate at Kentish Town should use the Northern line between Kentish Town and central London to complete their journey. For advice on how to get to your destination, visit the Thameslink Programme website.

    Holywell Hill

    by graeme83 Written Jan 7, 2009

    This is a very steep and traffic-lined hill. Legend has it that St. Alban's severed head rolled down the hill from the execution site and into a well at the bottom. If you are at the bottom of the hill it is a much easier and more aesthetic climb to walk up the hill in Verulamium Park.

    Drive through McDonald's

    by St_Vincent Updated Jun 24, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you are in the retail park near the Abbey Station (Sainsbury’s, Comet etc.) and fancy something to eat I recommend you AVOID the McDonalds restaurant. It is one of the most unwelcoming and inefficient branches of the global chain that I have come across. After waiting around 10 minutes to be served, whilst a number of uninterested staff milled aimlessly around, I got the impression that however hungry I was this was probably not the most hygienic place to assuage my hunger, and I left.

    It's also a drive through restaurant and that's what I suggest you do - without stopping. There is a café area in Sainsbury’s where you can get something to eat and you don’t need to be shopping in the supermarket to use it.

    Drive right through
