Nothing quite beats the feeling of travelling by train, that is apart from travelling by luxury train, of course. Take yourself back to the golden age of steam and opulent journeys with a trip on the Belmond Royal Scotsman between London and Edinburgh, connecting the two most prestigious UK capitals in one wonderful odyssey, complete with beautiful British countryside and all the trappings you would expect from a 5-star overland voyage.
Climb aboard the stunning and intricately restored Belmond Royal Scotsman train in London, departing late afternoon and traveling north en route to the Scottish capital. You will pass through delightful Hertfordshire, Godâ€™s Own Country in Yorkshire, and on to rugged North East England, enjoying fabulous cocktails and canapes along the way before sitting down to a sumptuous formal Gala Dinner. Finally, sit back and relax to the sounds of the onboard jazz duo in the Observation Car, before arriving in Newcastle, your home from home for the night.
Leaving Newcastle in the early morning, first enjoy a leisurely breakfast before getting comfortable to take in the stunning views over Britainâ€™s East Coast as the train crosses the border into Scotland, meandering through Alnmouth and Berwick, pulling into Edinburgh Waverly mid-morning, leaving you free to enjoy the many sights in one of Europeâ€™s most historic cities.
