LNER (London North Eastern Railway) serves the northern and north-eastern regions of the UK from London, and the major Scottish cities ofGlasgow, and Edinburgh. Trains run throughout the day on weekdays and weekends and follow a regular schedule of one every 30min or so. This makes LNER a very reliable operator to use for the commute between these cities and London. Omio is the ideal place to book LNER tickets easily from the convenience of your home.

LNER is owned and operated by the British Department for Transport. The company uses its Azuma trains on all routes, which borrow from Japanese bullet train designs and technologies. It runs the east coast trains and its lines cover just under 940 miles in total, connecting London with the areas of Leeds, Yorkshire,the East Midlands and Scotland as far as Inverness.
The LNER east coast service travels to several major train station destinations. The Leeds route terminates at Leeds Station, stopping at Peterborough and Wakefield, or at Stevenage and Grantham en route. The York Station Route goes via Stevenage, Peterborough, Grantham and Newark. Trains from Edinburgh Waverley Station call at York, Darlington, and Berwick-upon-Tweed. Other primary destinations include Newcastle Station, Lincoln Central Station and Doncaster Stationn.
The most popular LNER routes are those connecting London with major UK cities in the north and north-east UK. The trains all use London King’s Cross Station as their departure and arrival point. LNER trains travel between London and Edinburgh. They run throughout the day into the mid-evening, seven days a week, at roughly half-hourly intervals. Another top route is from King’s Cross to Harrogate, with trains running at similar times and intervals. Other busiest routes are the ones incoming to Kings Cross from Leeds, York and Newcastle. These trains also run on the same schedule as the other routes.
