First Class Train Tickets

Experience premium and bag the benefits worth boasting about. You’ll get to enjoy our First Class Lounges, complimentary food and drinks service, and seating upgrades.

COVID-19 Update: First Class at-seat service

If you're travelling First Class, a selection of food and beverages will be offered to you at your seat by a member of the onboard team. Our menu is slightly reduced at this time so for more information on what's available, please see below. With a selection of hot and cold options, you'll be sure to find something that takes your fancy.

If you’re making a short trip we may not have the full menu available. If you’re travelling between London and Milton Keynes, you’ll only have time for a hot drink.
