First Class For Free In London

On many trains in London (and across the country too) there is what’s known as ‘Declassified First Class’. In layman’s terms: the train used has a first class area on a route where no first class ticketing is available, which means that you can sit in the first class bit, on a standard class ticket. We thought we’d show you where some of them are in London – there’s a complete list below. If you know of any others, please tell us in the comments. In all these cases, CHECK THE TIMETABLE to see if there is a ‘1’ in at the top of the column. If there’s not – there is no first class on this train, but there may be First Class seating. We’re not responsible if you get it wrong!
