First class travel

When planning your journey, why not switch from your usual Standard Class ticket to First Class?

Southern offer First Class train tickets on the majority of our routes. If you choose to work on the train, there are power points close by on some of our services.

These seats are not just for season tickets, they can also be bought for the majority of daily tickets and Travelcards too.

Book your First Class train ticket today!

Upgrading your standard class ticket (Monday to Friday)

If you wish to upgrade your Standard Class ticket to First Class (Monday to Friday), you will need to do so before boarding the train. Our Conductors will only sell a new First Class ticket on board and will no longer be able to offer an upgrade. In addition, you may be liable to a Penalty Fare; however discretion will be applied if the ticket office was closed at the departure station.
