PLAN YOUR JOURNEY

We're here to make your train journey as smooth as possible

Planning before you travel


Well, we always recommend you stay up to date with our live train times tool. This handy train planner lets you see if there have been any cancellations or delays, and which platform you need to head to, as well as all the stops on your route. Just input your departure and arrival station and your date and time of travel, and we will let you know the latest travel updates.

On the day of travel

So, the bags are packed, the tickets are sorted, and you just want to kick back and enjoy the smoothest train journey possible.

Once you’ve purchased your tickets, Lumo will let you know of any timetable changes and disruption via email as your departure date gets closer. We do still recommend consulting the journey checker and live train times tracker to double check your platform number, potential delays and arrival/departure times.

If you have the LumoGo app downloaded on your phone, you can track live train times, letting you track the real-time progress of your train. As well, with our route planner, you can find the best way to get from your front door to your destination.


We’ve also helpfully pulled together the average travel times for our most popular train destinations, below.
