Coronavirus Travel Information

Train travel remains a vital public service and LNER will continue to operate our trains to keep the country moving. However, due to new guidance from the UK Government around Coronavirus (COVID-19), we are running a special, temporary timetable, have removed catering from our trains and closed all First Class lounges. We have also removed our £10 admin fee, for a temporary period, so that you can book and rearrange travel with confidence. Read the full COVID-19 travel advice here.
