Advance tickets now on sale for extra direct trains to London

LNER is now selling advance tickets on the long-awaited extra direct trains between Lincoln and London Kings Cross.

In addition to the current one direct train in the morning from Lincoln and one return from London in the evening, there will now be four extra services.

Tickets are on sale for new services from Monday, October 21. Click or tap here to book on the LNER website.

Tickets start from £17.50 one way in Standard Class and £32 for First Class seats.

The most expensive tickets are £42 in Standard and £86 in First Class.

Half of those new services will be on the new Azuma trains, introduced on the line in May, which operate diesel and electric hybrids.

Azuma also comes with faster acceleration and more seating, extra legroom for both standard and first-class passengers, as well as power sockets on every seat.
