Answered By: 
The Mayor

TfL monitors demand to ensure that its services meet the needs of passengers and this indicates that opening Cannon Street station on Sundays could not be justified at present.

However, given other forthcoming changes to service patterns of mainline trains, TfL is reviewing the opening hours of Cannon Street station, including whether Sunday opening might be justifiable.
