At Virgin Trains we’re sprucing up and improving your entire experience along the east coast to make sure you’re bound for glory every single time you travel with us…

Sexy new interiors

We’re rolling out glorious new interiors on our trains, including plush new seats, fresh new carpets and lovelier loos. We’ve even gone leather in First Class. Fancy! There’s a transformed train arriving every few weeks until the end of this year. By then, our full fleet will be red hot.

The surf’s on us in Standard

That’s right, our onboard WiFi is now free in Standard along the east coast when you book your travel through a participating travel management company or Trainline for Business.

That’s enterTRAINment

BEAM, our spanking new onboard entertainment service, is rolling out this summer. Packed with big blockbusters, brilliant box sets, tonnes of TV, great games and riveting reads to make your journeys even more glorious. It’ll be onboard, on demand, and on us.

Dishier dishes

Brand-new menus, designed exclusively for Virgin Trains, are now being served in First Class. These tastebud-tingling dishes are bursting with locally sourced, high-quality ingredients, showcasing different food producers from along our east coast route. We’ll also be giving the menus in Standard an overhaul this autumn. Here’s to a gloriously tasty journey.

Luxury lounges

Our First Class lounges have had a touch-up too, with slick workstations, comfy relaxation areas and even a few chaise longues added. You’ll also find free WiFi, soft drinks, snacks and newspapers – oh, we are spoiling you.

More times to shine

We’re now making more journeys than ever between Edinburgh and London, with 42 additional services per week (that’s 22,000 extra seats). With our services along the west coast included, you’ll find more Virgin Trains travelling between Edinburgh and London every weekday than any domestic airline. Whether you’re heading up or down for business, you can go as and when you like. So easy.
