I travelled on a Pendolino train from Glasgow Central to London Euston. Taking just over four and a half hours from start to finish, I had time to kick back, relax and watch the countryside roll by. Just as well, as I was completely knackered after my weekend break in Glasgow!
For a train nerd such as myself, Glasgow Central is a magnificent station. The trainshed is a wonderful mass of glass and metal – a wonderful remnant of the original station from the late 19th century.
Boarding the train was very easy. I had an Advance ticket with a seat reservation so made my way to my seat. I’d opted to travel in Standard Class as I was on a budget, but I’d highly recommend First Class if you’ve got a bit more to spend! The carriages are more spacious and the ticket includes at-seat meal service. I definitely cast a few jealous glances through the door!
Luckily, my seat had access to a plug socket to keep my phone charged. On Pendolino trains such as the one I took, only window-side table seats have access to plug sockets. They are slightly more prevalent in Super Voyager Standard Class carriages.
I busied myself with watching a movie through the free onboard streaming portal, "Avanti Media”. You’ll have to download the Avanti Media app to use the portal. The free onboard WiFi was serviceable – allowing me to check emails and browse social media without using up my data allowance.
Arriving at London Euston
The train arrived a few minutes later than the scheduled arrival time but all told, the journey went by very smoothly! Euston has plenty of TfL connections – including overground and underground lines – so I hopped on a Northern Line service to continue my journey home.
