Ques Train from London to Edinburgh

Jump to last reply

DH and I will be taking the train from London to Edinburgh next year. Before anyone asks, yes we want to ride the train. We're on award tickets and the best route for us was to and from LHR from the U.S. So we are taking the train to Edinburgh on arrival and flying back to LHR from Glasgow.

I know it's too early to book tickets yet (we're not flying till May), but I was looking at the Virgin Trains East website just to see what it looked like.

Questions:

1. How long should we allow for getting from LHR to Kings Cross train station? Our flight arrives at LHR at 6:55 a.m.

2. What does it mean when it says "Show overtaken trains"? Should I check that box when I get ready to book?

3. Standard or First Class?

4. Under the info for First Class it shows a symbol that looks like a plane diving into something and says it's complimentary for first class, but I can't find any explanation of the symbol.

5. Is the tube the best way to the train station?

Thank you!
