Gat Express...Express Class vs First Class

Is it worth the difference? What is the difference? The train ride is about 30 minutes is it not?

its not worth the extra money, yes its only a 30min trip. The standard class seating is perfectly adequate for such a short journey.

Express Class single = £14.90

First Class Single = £22.50

Frankly...for 30 mins or so dont even btoher. A wider seat...hmmmm. for the extra money if your posterior cant stand the crush...lol

Maybe if you were doing long distance (now to compare this I got first class to edinburgh for 25pounds) yes it is but not for such a short journey.

Agreed. Save your money for something more useful. Standard class is fine for the half hour ride.

I have taken it a few times, express class and after sitting on a plane seat for 7 hours the cheap seats seem quite luxurious.
