Connections to Eurostar or the airport

It's so simple to travel with us to London St Pancras International  – then change platforms for a high-speed Eurostar service to the Continent.   We have early trains from Leicester, as well as services from Wellingborough and Kettering that arrive into London St Pancras International in time to catch the first Eurostar of the day. If you are travelling even further we have connections to UK airports including train services from East Midlands Parkway for East Midlands Airport, Liverpool South Parkway for John Lennon Airport, and Luton Airport Parkway.

Penalty Fares

We operate a Penalty Fare scheme across the network, this means that anyone travelling without a valid ticket is likely to face a charge. To avoid a penalty fare, we advise you to buy your tickets before travelling, as many stations now fall within the penalty fare zone, meaning tickets cannot be bought on board the train.
