Train from London to Edinburgh

Jump to last reply

Previously I asked for some advice about the train ride from London to Edinburgh and was advised to buy first class tickets and sit on the East(right) side of the train because there was some good scenery. We have a travel agent who was helping us with a few parts of our trip, including these train tickets. Today I picked up all the information for a trip next month and she, despite being told repeatedly since about December what our preferences were, booked us on the West (left) side of the train, if I am reading the seating charts correctly.
She has us on Coach K, seats 31 & 33, departing King's Cross at 10:30, arrive Edinburgh at 3:09 pm, Sunday, May 12.
I didn't know that until I got home and checked the train seating diagrams.

So what I need to know is, is the scenery on the East side, going north, worth throwing a fit over? Is it possible I am looking at the wrong chart? We told her we would book the tickets but she insisted she could do it for a better price, so we let her book them.

Thanks for any advice on this.
