We Do Things Differently

LNER is a publicly-owned train operator that is driving real change. Since 2018 our achievements have included:

On 7 December, 2019 the last Virgin train will pull out of the station on the West Coast mainline. If you've been booking your tickets through virgintrains.co.uk you might be wondering what happens next. The good news is that there is a great alternative available - LNER.

LNER replaced Virgin Trains East Coast on the East Coast mainline in June 2018, so this isn't our first rodeo. Since then, we've been creating a train service fit for the future with more seats, space and reliability.

We've also started on our journey to offering you a better online booking experience that offers more options, better deals and simplicity. And you can buy your tickets with LNER no matter where you're travelling to.
