East Midlands Trains services to London are designed for long-distance comfort and Standard Class offers you the comfort and facilities you need at an affordable price. Cheap tickets to London are easy to find when you book in advance using Best Fare Finder and on our London routes you can reserve seats, enjoy more space and browse the internet with our on board WiFi from just £4.
During both weekdays and weekends, our on board teams provide an at-seat trolley service where you can purchase hot snacks and refreshments. From hearty sandwiches to sweets and snacks delivered to your seat for your convenience. We offer a full range of drinks including Starbucks VIA coffee, tea and soft drinks. We also offer alcoholic drinks including wines, beers, cider and spirits, too. On some busy services, we may operate a buffet bar where refreshments can be collected.
There are two types of trains used on our London route, the Meridian and the High Speed Train. When travelling on one of our Meridian trains you will benefit from the availability of a plug socket (one plug socket is available for each pair of seats). Unfortunately plug sockets are not available in Standard Class on our High Speed Trains. To view whether the train you are planning on travelling on is a Meridian or High Speed Train, simply follow these simple steps:
Although we try our best to provide the train that you are expecting for your journey, at times, trains faults do occur or trains cannot operate the service for which they were intended for and therefore we cannot guarantee that the train type advertised will be the train type that you travel on.
Please note that plug sockets are only available on our London route Meridian trains and are therefore not available on other routes.
Got a Standard Class ticket but wished you purchased a First Class ticket? At weekends you can upgrade to First Class on board our trains for just £10 each way, allowing you to enjoy larger seats, refreshments (available from the buffet bar when you show your First Class ticket) and complimentary WiFi.
£10 upgrade is not applicable for customers travelling with Advance tickets and is subject to availability. Please contact a member of staff on board your weekend service to upgrade.
