What to expect when travelling first class on a train

It’s easy to get disillusioned with rail travel, especially if you’re a commuter who needs to head to and from a busy place at rush hour. Your experience of travelling by train might consist of trying to keep yourself balanced while standing inches from other passengers, or maybe even sharing a ride with other people’s luggage! But it doesn’t have to be this way. You know that just a few carriages in front of yours is a world of peace, space and comfort. It seems like bliss when you have your head in a fellow-commuter’s armpit, but what do you actually get for the extra money when you travel first class? 

Peace and quiet

If you’ve ever wandered into a first-class carriage by accident, you’ll have noticed how peaceful it is. It’s one of the key reasons people choose to travel first class. And if this is what you’re looking for, you’ll find you’re surrounded by like-minded folk. People in these carriages generally want to sleep, admire the view or work. Therefore, the only distraction you might have is from being given your courtesy coffee.

London

As the Capital city of the UK, London naturally has so much to offer tourists. If you are travelling as a family with children, London has plenty to keep them busy from the Museums to the parks, London Zoo or the SeaLife London Aquarium, to famous national landmarks and sights like Buckingham palace and the London Eye.

Staying centrally in areas like Paddington, Kings Cross, Covent Garden or South Kensington will give you great access to lots of attractions and you can quickly and easily get around on the tube to explore further.

From London, you can also consider day trips slightly further afield to attractions such as Legoland Windsor. Or take a de-tour and spend a few days around Windsor itself to see the castle, and the atmosphere around this beautiful town.

Finally, indoor dining has returned and Hard Rock Cafe celebrated with a time limited Festival menu, which will be available in both London restaurants until 1st June. We were so excited to get back out and about again, we had to go and check it out and we had such a fun night visiting the Hard Rock Cafe London branch on Park Lane.

Hard Rock Cafe is an iconic venue, with so much music history decorating the walls. The atmosphere was great, to see so many people out enjoying themselves once again and they also have live music available. Fully reopened and with extended opening times, Hard Rock Cafe is also bringing music back into the city with live gigs every week featuring acoustic unplugged sets from up and coming acts every Wednesday at Hard Rock London, and Thursday at Hard Rock Piccadilly Circus, from 6.30pm.

Everything You Should Think About When You Are Planning A Longer Travel Trip

If you are feeling quite stressed and need to get away from your life for a while or you just have some spare time, then it could be worth thinking about booking a longer vacation. Instead of heading away for a couple of weeks, you could plan to stay for a few months or perhaps longer. It largely depends on whether you have commitments and if you have family, whether they can come with you. Some people will always be more suitable for this type of option compared with others. For instance, if you’re a freelancer, you could have a lot of freedom to travel as long as you like. However, you’ll still need to make sure that you are taking the right steps here. So, let’s break down some of the best ways that you can plan for this type of vacation.
