About our trains

Faster, easier and more enjoyable in every way.

Our Pendolino and Super Voyager trains hit top speeds of 125mph, using tilting mechanisms to maintain speed around corners. Faster than a car, cheaper than a flight and less hassle than both, you’ll arrive at your destination relaxed and ready for whatever lies ahead. 

Take a seat

You can choose seat preferences on all Avanti West Coast trains. Plus, if you book direct with us, you can change your seat down the line should an alternative be available. All you have to do is email seat.reservations@avantiwestcoast.co.uk

Find the perfect spot

If you’re carrying something bulky, or if you need some assistance when you travel, you’ll find the journey easier if you plan ahead. 

To help you out, we’ve got information on the layouts and seating plans of our Pendolino and Super Voyager trains so you can see where to stash your bags, bikes or anything else you might have with you. You can also see where the on-board shop and toilets are.

Looking for the unreserved coach?

Coach C is always unreserved on our trains, so if you haven't booked a seat, this is a good place to start.
