My son and I are taking the 9:30 AM train from Edinburgh to London in July. We've got two first class seats. The seats we have are on the west side and I've read that the east side has the better view. However, on the east side, it's a single row of seats so one of us would be facing backwards, versus both of us facing forwards on the west side.
Any opinions? Should we both be forward on the west side, or is the east side view worth one of us facing backwards?
