Queen's Jubilee road closures: Full map of traffic disruptions for bank holiday weekend

ACROSS the Platinum Jubilee Weekend there will be lots of road closures over the country.

London in particular will have roads closed for street parties and other big events, including the Platinum Party at the Palace.

Where are the Jubilee road closures?

There are over 158 official Platinum Jubilee events and even more local events happening all over the UK in honour of Her Majesty's 70 years on the throne.

Street parties are a common celebration as well as parades, so naturally many roads will be closed.

This is particularly noticeable in London, where official advice is to avoid driving through the city this weekend.

Check your local council website for road closures in your borough as these may change across the Jubilee.

Transport for London (TfL) has advised avoiding using cars or buses where possible.

The website reads: "If your destination is not in central London, use routes that avoid the area."

Road closure Thursday, June 2

As far as The Sun can tell there are minimal road closures on Thursday, the spring bank holiday.

Most of the disruption is concentrated around central London and Buckingham Palace for Trooping the Colour – most Platinum Jubilee events are taking place over the weekend.

Again, check locally to see if there are smaller events in your borough but use the Tube instead of road travel to avoid any issues.

Road closures on Friday, June 3

On Friday, the Service of Thanksgiving will cause disruptions across City of London.

This will mainly be focused on St Paul's Cathedral and the surrounding area such as Bank and Blackfriars.

Disruptions last from 7am all the way through to 6pm but may continue to affect traffic all evening.

The impact will stretch from Monument to Fleet Street, all along the river and out to London Wall.

The excitement, and road closures, move to St James's Park on Saturday for the Platinum Party at the Palace.

Some roads will be closed all the way through to Monday, with others closed temporarily for Saturday evening.

Road closures on Sunday, June 5

As with Saturday, St James's Park will bear the brunt of closures.

Westminster will be more impacted by the Platinum Pageant than the Party at the Palace, with Westminster Bridge also closed during the festivities.

The riverside stretch from Blackfriars, through Embankment and to Westminster will be closed from midnight to midnight on Sunday.

Is the London Tube open during the Queen's Platinum Jubilee weekend?

From Friday onwards, TfL has warned there are some strikes taking place.

This could mean some stations close without warning so check before travelling.

Pre-planned closures of stations are generally limited to the areas in which big events are taking place.
