Upgrade to a First Class ticket on weekends and UK bank holidays from just a tenner each way and enjoy more space, complimentary snacks and drinks and free Wi-Fi access. All the help you need to make the most of your weekend.

When booking that weekend or bank holiday First Class ticket online, the price displayed is that of an Off-Peak ticket with the upgrade cost already included. Or if you decide to treat yourself on the day, upgrades can be purchased onboard from the Train Manager. On weekends under 16s will be charged £5 each way ontop of their Standard ticket, with under 5s travelling free.

Complimentary weekend and bank holiday food

Travelling in First Class at weekends and UK bank holidays means you'll get one of our snazzy snack boxes along with as much free tea, coffee and water as you can drink.

From the start of the day until 10.59 the snack box contains still water, orange juice, a bag of dried fruit, a croissant and a low fat yoghurt.

From 11am onwards, the snack box contains still water, orange juice, crisps, a bag of dried fruit, chocolate and a biscuit.

All snack boxes also come with a puzzle sheet with pencil. You can't eat it, but it is quite fun.

We try to bring you the best and most delicious snacky bits we can, so the goodies in our snack boxes are subject to change and availability (and will actually change fairly regularly because of this).

On most trains snack boxes will be served at your seat, but on some trains you may have to visit The Shop and show your First Class ticket to pick up your refreshments.

Don't forget, you can kick back in our lounges before you jump onboard but opening times may vary, so please check before you travel.
