Imagine going to sleep in one place and waking up somewhere else.

Travel with GWR overnight between the West Country and London, and your dream can come true. Think of it as your bedroom on wheels.

A great night’s sleep

Our comfortable cabins have everything you need for a night away including UK plug sockets and USB points, a sink with tabletop and waste bin, a wardrobe, plus storage space under the bottom bunk. 
And, if you’d like to relax in your cabin before you turn in for the night, your bottom bunk converts into a sofa.

Our on-board lounge

Our lounge bar is open for drinks and snacks throughout your journey. Serving a selection of well-known alcoholic drinks, tea, coffee, and soft drinks, bar snacks and light bites.
Or, if you just fancy a quiet night in, why not order room service.

At the station

When you book a cabin, you can use our First Class lounges at Paddington, Penzance, and Truro, before you leave and when you arrive.

Sit back, relax, and help yourself to a range of drinks and snacks.

All our lounges also have shower rooms if you’d like to freshen up.

Explore the best of Cornwall

From Penzance, why not stroll across to St. Michaels Mount. Or jump on an open-top bus and enjoy the surrounding beaches, towns, and villages.

For music lovers and surfboarders, a highlight is the annual Boardmasters Festival.

Live the London life

From world-class theatres and museums, to some of the best restaurants and bars. London has something for everyone.

Plan ahead and take advantage of hundreds of attractions, when you travel by train, with 2FOR1 offers.

The Isles of Scilly

The Isles of Scilly are like nowhere else. Beautiful, uncrowded, and unspoilt, they lie just off the coast of Cornwall but seem like a world away.
