Make a seat reservation
Reserve a seat or bike space for your Flexible ticket
If your ticket doesn't have a seat reservation, like an Off-Peak, Anytime or Season ticket, you can make one before you board so that you have the most comfortable journey.
Standalone seat reservations are available 12 weeks before your journey date, even if you purchased your Flexible ticket earlier.
Be Seat Sure
Seat Sure is exactly what it sounds like. You can travel comfortably and with confidence knowing you have a seat.
You'll have a better train experience if you've reserved a seat. No reservable seats left? Travel at another time to secure a seat.
Quick and easy
Secure your seat up to 5 minutes before departure. Our quick tool lets you go from seatless to Seat Sure in seconds or reserve on the go with our LNER App.
You're in control
Flexible ticket? You can cancel your seat, make a new reservation on a different train or even change to your favourite spot in your account.
There is limited unreserved seating in coach C (Standard) and coaches E or M (First Class) available on a first-come, first-served basis. Stay updated with live journey info by sharing your mobile number with LNER Assistant.
If you need a wheelchair space or priority seat, we recommend booking your seat by contacting our Assisted travel team.
