The train from London's King Cross Station arrives at the Royal City of Edinburgh at around 11.30am. Right by the station you board the open-top sightseeing bus where you'll get a bird's-eye view of this majestic city! The hop-on hop-off ticket allows you the freedom to leave and re-join the bus as often as you like.

You will see the Old Town quarter, the Scotch Whisky Heritage Centre, the gloriously intricate Scott Monument, the Palace of Holyrood House and the brand new Scottish Parliament building. You might want to wander through the cobbled city centre streets or stroll along Princes Street checking out the tartan, whisky and shortbreads that have made Scotland famous! Your tour includes tickets to Edinburgh Castle.

The train back to London leaves Edinburgh in the late afternoon returning to London's King's Cross.

Overnight in Edinburgh (optional)

Stay overnight in Edinburgh at a 3* centrally located hotel and enjoy an evening of Scottish hospitality in one of the many restaurants or lively bars in the city. Prices are per person, based on two people staying in a twin room (single room supplement applies).
