FAQs

At what age can children travel on your trains unaccompanied by an adult?

Children should not travel on their own on LNER until they are mature enough to understands the risks involved with rail travel. It is the responsibility of the parent or guardian to make this decision.

LNER Staff are unable to provide a chaperone service and if we notice a child travelling on their own and we are worried about their safety we will contact the British Transport Police for assistance.
