Unusually, the Hammersmith & City Line will be operating as a Hammersmith - Upminster service during the closure.

To add to this, Piccadilly Line trains will not be stopping at South Kensington (Natural History/ Science Museums) until Spring 2022 - District and Circle Line trains are unaffected.

Thanks ElmersEnd, if I didn’t know better I’d think the lines and dates were the result of hacking into my computer to match them with my travel plans!

Will Gloucester Road or Knightsbridge be a better option if using the Piccadilly Line? I would assume Gloucester Road but I'm not familiar with it.

Yes Gloucester Road is nearer to South Kensington Station than Knightsbridge so that is the better option whilst the Piccadillyl lne is not stopping at South Kensington. Of course it does depend on your final destination but if it's for the museums then Gloucester Road is nearer. Plus if you don't want to walk you can always switch to the District or Circle line at Gloucester Road to get to South Kensington ( assuming of course that those lines are not closed for engineering works).

Useful information - this impacts out trip this week - I'm currently looking at how we can use bus, river boat and DLR for our journeys... It remains to be seen how much busier they are than normal.
