» Edinburgh Full Day Tour
Highlights: »Edinburgh Castle and City

Edinburgh - Who would believe travelling from London to Edinburgh on a one-day rail excursion was possible! Board the high-speed train from London and watch the countryside and coastline of Britain speed past your window. You arrive in Edinburgh at approximately 11:30 am.

Enjoy spectacular views from Carlton Hill. First, we visit Scotland's top visitor attraction Edinburgh Castle standing high above the city. See the Scottish Crown Jewels in the Royal Apartments. Look for the tiny St. Margaret's Chapel, Edinburgh's oldest building and listen for the one o'clock gun, fired daily from Mills Mount Battery. See Holyrood Palace - still a Royal residence and historic murder scene of Rizzio, Secretary to Mary Queen of Scots or walk through the ruins of its Abbey, dating back to the 12th Century.

Crop Circle
Crop Circle tour


Walk down The Royal Mile, the cobbled street linking the Castle into town, passing St. Giles' High Kirk, John Knox House, the Scotch Whisky Heritage Centre, Camera Obscura and many other museums and buildings of historic interest.

Spend a quiet half hour enjoying the tranquillity of Princes Street Gardens or stroll along Princes Street, Edinburgh's main shopping thoroughfare, browsing amongst its many stores on the look out for tweeds and tartans or try some Scottish shortbread.

We reboard our late afternoon train back to London arriving at King's Cross Station at approximately 22:15 hrs.

This tour departs from Kings Cross station every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday
