Your First Class experience starts the moment you reach the station. First Class lounges provide a sanctuary from the crowds – the perfect place to grab an often complimentary snack, make use of the free WiFi or just nod off in a plush armchair. Just try not to miss your train.

On the house

Put your wallet away – First Class lounge amenities are usually free. From hot drinks and non-alcoholic cold drinks, to snacks and newspapers, just help yourself. Your train operator will pick up the tab.

Working on the go?

Some lounges offer dedicated corporate areas, with both desks and TV screens. Sign into their free Wi-Fi and you’ll never miss an email (or Facebook update) again.

Make yourself at home

Usually all you need to do to get into a First Class lounge is show a valid First or Business Class ticket – and can enjoy them for an hour before departure during peak times, and up to two hours during off peak, although this varies by operator. So sit back, relax, and spread out.
