New GWR rail lounges have opened in Truro and Penzance.

We had a bit of a spurt a couple of years ago reviewing rail lounges across the UK.  My favourite is the GWR First Class lounge at Paddington reviewed here.  Here are reviews of Virgin Trains Manchester lounge, Virgin Trains Liverpool lounge and Virgin Trains London Easton lounge.  The old Virgin East Coast lounge at Kings Cross – which is unchanged under LNER – is reviewed here.

New GWR lounges at Truro and Penzance

seat61.com reports via Twitter that GWR has opened two new lounges in Penzance and Truro.  These are only for sleeper train passengers and have a lounge with showers & complimentary tea, coffee, juice and snacks.  This is all part of the new look Night Riviera Sleeper service which you can read about here.

There are some photos from seat61 of the Penzance lounge here.

    Sleeper not a bad option. Terribly slow daytime journey, takes almost an hour longer from London to Penzance than Edinburgh, even though the latter is nearly 100 miles further

    Rail lounges – I was pleasantly surprised recently to find LNER had lounges in so many of their stations, even what might be considered a rather less important interchange like Doncaster. However, unless you’re travelling from Paddington, GWR don’t have lounges in large stations such as Reading and Plymouth.
