Welcome to LNER
We’re here to provide the very best experience in train travel.
From booking your ticket, to asking us a question on the platform and getting settled onboard our trains, we want to make every step as easy and enjoyable as possible.
Our new Azuma train is just a glimpse of what’s to come. Bringing faster journey times, more space and more seats, with the same great value fares. Every day we deliver the small details that make a big difference to your journey. Serving locally sourced tasty food and free Wi-Fi in first and standard and being a more responsible business.
We put our heart into everyone’s journey. Bringing Grandmas to spend time with their families, reuniting long-distance friends and playing our small part in making memories on family days out.
Who are we?
LNER is the rail company that operates on the East Coast mainline.
We took over after Virgin Trains East Coast in June 2018 and we have ambitious plans to change the face of train travel. We want to create a service everybody loves, that our people are proud to work for and that helps the communities that we’re part of to flourish.
We kept our promise to maintain a seamless transition between old and new. While doing that, we launched the future of rail travel, with our new Azuma train. It’s already a great success, introducing more seats, more space and above all, more reliability.
Whether you’re nipping to your auntie’s for cake and a cuppa, braving a meeting with the boss or treating the kids to a day of candy floss and sandy toes. We’re with you. Making it happen. Connecting towns and cities, people and places with pride.
Our values are what makes us tick. They make us LNER from ticket to track.
We put our heart into everyone’s journey and here’s how we do it.
