“Travel time doesn’t have to be lost time.

Introducing the new train on the block, the LNER Azuma. The standards on LNER’s new Azuma trains are high – they are faster, smarter, brand-new trains, built using Japanese bullet train technology. They offer improved Wi-Fi, power sockets at every seat and more space all round to enjoy your onboard experience.

Standard travel includes an extra 7cms of leg room, more over-head and under-seat luggage space to keep valuables close by, window blinds fitted in each carriage, electronic seat reservations to make it easier to find a free seat and ergonomic seating for your most comfortable journey yet.

And on-board, you’ll experience a whole new First Class with more room and a smarter layout for you to relax and recharge in LNER’s most luxurious train yet with power sockets and USB charging points at every seat and a complimentary two-course meal for lunch and dinner, and a popular breakfast menu in the morning.

If you are looking to travel as a group to a conference or event, you can privately hire your own carriage with LNER Platinum exclusive hire. Tailor your menu, brand your carriage with your company logo and start your
meeting on board – with LNER Platinum anything is possible.
