Travelling by train

Special assistance is available for disabled or mobility-impaired people travelling by train.

If you need special assistance, contact the appropriate train operating company, giving them 24 hours' notice of your journey.

They will then arrange help for you at each stage of your journey, and reserve a seat for you, if reservations are available.
