1. From London: Edinburgh Overnight Tour by Train
Journey north to Edinburgh by train on a tour from London. Explore the city at your leisure, visit Edinburg Castle, and enjoy a hop-on hop-off open-top bus tour. Sleep overnight in a 3-star hotel to get the most of your time and stay in Edinburgh. Begin your first day with a 6:30 AM check-in to prepare for an early morning train to Edinburgh. The local partner's representative will meet you at the ticket office and escort you to your reserved seat on the train. The journey to the Scottish capital takes around 4.5 hours. Explore the Royal Mile and visit Edinburgh Castle. Admission to the Castle is included in the tour. On your tour of Edinburgh Castle, see the spectacular Scottish Crown Jewels and also take in the sweeping views of the capital’s skyline. Delve into the Scottish capital’s rich history with a hop–on hop–off bus tour and take in all the major sights like the Royal Mile, Greyfriars Bobby, the Palace of Holyroodhouse, and Edinburgh Castle. Your ticket is valid for 24 hours, allowing you to use it the following day. Overnight accommodation in Edinburgh is also included in the tour. Spend an evening wining and dining your way around this vibrant, cosmopolitan city and spend the night in comfort in your 3-star hotel. After breakfast at the hotel, have the rest of the morning and all of the afternoon to explore the atmospheric streets of Edinburgh and maybe wander Princes Street to see what the many shops have to offer. Return to London by train and be sure to arrive 15 minutes before your train's departure from Edinburgh at 5:31 PM. Arrive in London at 10:09 PM.
