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

On the house

Put your wallet away – these are on us. From hot drinks and non-alcoholic cold drinks, to snacks and newspapers, just help yourself. We’ll pick up the tab.

Working on the go?

Drop into our dedicated corporate area, where you’ll find desks and TV screens showing BBC News. Sign into the free Wi-Fi and you’ll never miss an email (or Facebook update) again.

Make yourself at home

All you need to do to get into our First Class lounges is show a valid Virgin Trains ticket – either Virgin Business, First Anytime or Advance First. For up to two hours before your outward journey, and up to one hour after you arrive, just make yourself at home (within reason, please).
