We also reserved assistance at each station and had access to the lounge in Crewe, our transit station.
Our Virgin Super Voyager train was nice, similar to a Jaanese shinkansen's green car.
The time passed quickly and we really enjoyed the train ride.
Green fields, barns and sheep... Everywhere.
Upon arrival, we took a short cab ride to our hotel, the Marriott Residence Inn.
It has a nice couch, desk and small kitchen...so nice and comphy!
We had our first pint of ale and half pint of shandy at the recommended Greyfriar's Bobby.
