Holidays and short breaks with Flying Scotsman
Flying Scotsman takes the Cathedrals Express to Scotland!
The Flying Scotsman to Edinburgh
Following the popularity of our previous trips to Edinburgh with Flying Scotsman, we are planning to use the famous engine to journey from London to Edinburgh once again and enjoy 3 nights and 2 full days in Scotland's capital.
On day 1, our journey begins at London Kings Cross in the morning, with a vintage diesel at the head of the train, and we travel up the East Coast Mainline towards York. From York, we will travel behind Flying Scotsman high over the city of Durham, past the Angel of the North, and over the River Tyne in Newcastle before joining the beautiful coastal route towards Edinburgh.
On days 2 and 3, there will be optional excursions with Flying Scotsman over the Forth Rail Bridge and by road coach to local distilleries or National Trust properties.
On day 4, our train, headed by Flying Scotsman, leaves Edinburgh after breakfast, this time taking the route along the West Coast mainline towards Carlisle and through Cumbria to Crewe. From here we will be whisked back to London with a diesel locomotive on the front of our train.
