Tips for travelling with kids

  • Changing nappies and breastfeeding - Our accessible toilets include a folded baby changing unit and are a private area if you want to use them for breastfeeding. Our stations have baby changing facilities too, just ask a member of staff to point you in the right direction.
  • Foldable pushchairs are welcome on board - you can fold these easily away safely under seat, in the overhead storage or other storage areas. Pushchairs aren't allowed in the wheelchair area as we have to keep them clear for wheelchair users legally.
  • Check if your train will be busy
  • Toilets - We've got accessible toilets on our trains and at our stations. To find free toilets on the train, simply look upwards at our info screens, and at the station, just and ask a member of staff to point you in the right direction.
