Edinburgh Christmas Pullman II

Departs –

From .

Sit back, relax and travel north of the border to enjoy all the pre-Christmas attractions of Scotland's beautiful capital city aboard our luxurious vintage diesel hauled Pullman train 'The Spirit of the Lakes'.

Edinburgh is one of our most popular destinations and no wonder. First there is the journey north with the stunning scenery of the east coast to admire as the train rushes along the cliff tops giving spectacular sea views. Then there are the attractions of Edinburgh which include the famous castle, numerous museums, galleries and the shops of Princes Street, Holyrood Palace and the Royal Mile. At Christmas time there are also two bustling Christmas markets and an ice rink in the park. Add to all this the lights and decorations that you would expect of a capital city at this time of year and you have the perfect combination for a great day out.

Departure from Stevenage is expected to be around 05:15 with a break in Edinburgh of around two to three hours. Arrival back into Stevenage will be approximately 23:00 (Doncaster approximately 08:00 outwards and 20:00 return).

Pullman Dining Settle to Carlisle Line passengers will be served a full English breakfast with complimentary Buck's Fizz plus elevenses or light lunch (depending on finalised timings), on the outward journey. A delicious four course, Christmas themed, evening dinner preceded by canapés and Champagne will be served on the return journey.

Pullman First Class passengers will be served a breakfast bap and light refreshments on the outward leg and cake/biscuits will be served on the return journey. To accompany this there will be a complimentary service of tea and coffee.

Standard and First Class passengers will have access to a buffet for the purchase of tea, coffee and light refreshments. You are also welcome to bring your own refreshments or indeed a tasty picnic to enjoy as the countryside passes by!

First Class, Pullman First Class and Dining passengers can book a private table for a supplement of £20.00 per person.
