You Are Central

Travel to London with Britain's favourite train company

In everything we do, we put our customers first, because you are central.

We're not just a train company, we're Britain's favourite train company. In fact, our passengers have consistently rated us as one of the best in the country for the last ten years, as well as for value for money.

We're an open-access train operator, which means we aren't subject to government contracts or stipulations, and we don't take any government support. We're about giving you a choice of who to travel with. Because of the flexibility this gives us, we're able to take action and put the passenger first.

What makes us different?

When you choose Grand Central you choose

There aren't many routes in Britain that give you a choice of train operator, but on the East Coast mainline we know you have options. That's why we strive to provide you with great value tickets, unbeatable service and excellent memories.
