Seating plan on our trains

Prefer a window seat? Need to be close to the toilet? Got a bike with you? Need a seat that’s suitable for wheelchairs? Take a look at the Avanti seating plan to understand what seats work best for your needs before you book. We’ve highlighted where the wheelchair-accessible seats are in our carriage plans for each of our train types, as well as where the bike storage is, so you can plan accordingly.

We’ve also included features that can be found at each seat, so you can choose a seat that’s close to the toilet or one with a plug socket to suit your needs. Each train varies in design, so be sure to check the correct Pendolino seating plan or take a look at our Super Voyager train seating maps to make the right choice for your journey.
