Seating Information

If you’ve not yet travelled with us, you may be wondering how we arrange seating in each class of travel.

The diagrams below show the main differences between our ‘Standard Class’ carriages and ‘First Class’, ‘Premier’ & ‘Pullman Dining’ carriages.

  • All our seating is arranged around tables for a maximum of either 4 or 2 people.
  • All tables are located next to a window.
  • For individual travellers, it is possible to book 1 seat at a Window Table for 2, this is the only way to guarantee a window seat as an individual traveller.
  • It is not possible to book 3 seats at a ‘Window Table for 2’ as this arrangement clearly does not fit.

If you have any questions regarding seating, please contact our Reservations Office and we will be happy to help.

As always, seating arrangements will be subject to availability.

There are 4 different classes of travel available on board our train, but whichever you choose please book early to avoid disappointment:

Standard Class
Reserved seating is arranged around a table of 4 with bookings for 2 seated side by side and single bookings normally allocated an aisle seat – a buffet bar is available throughout most of the journey for the purchase of hot & cold beverages, snacks and alcoholic drinks.

First Class
Reserved seating is arranged at tables of 4 or 2 with additional legroom, wide seats and panoramic windows. Complimentary tea/coffee, biscuits and light refreshments are included, and a buffet bar is available throughout most of the journey for the purchase of hot & cold beverages, snacks and alcoholic drinks.

A full English breakfast and four course dinner will be prepared on board by our chefs and silver served at your seat by liveried stewards. A full wine & drinks list is available.

Pullman Dining
This is the ultimate travel experience – seating is in our refurbished Pullman style umber & cream wood panelled carriages offering additional legroom, wide seats and panoramic windows with seating at tables of 4 or 2 laid with crisp linen and fully dressed with fine crockery and glassware.

An ‘at seat’ drinks service is available for purchase throughout the day.
