Trains in UK - is there quiet to be found?

Jump to last reply

Thinking with pleasure about taking a train ride from London to Scotland BUT then remembered how especially disturbed I am by cell-phone chatter. Where I live in NY, there are quiet cars on trains, so I know how to make my ride enjoyable.

So I want to know - are there quiet cars on British long-distance trains? If not, is the best class of seat likely to give me some protection against yammering neighbors?

And/or is baseline train behavior in Britain good/considerate enough that I shouldn't worry about this? the invention of texting has improved the environment for someone with my sound sensitivities for sue.

One option on my list is an overnight sleeper train, where I'd have my own little roomette, and could still sit in a lounge for company
