From day one, HS2 trains will also integrate into the existing network, serving towns and cities such as Liverpool, York, Newcastle, Sheffield, Preston, Wigan and Carlisle, Glasgow and Edinburgh.

This will change the geography of Britain as we know it, bringing more places, better lifestyles, and connections to the people we love, within easy reach.
