Stevenage to Edinburgh
Departs – Saturday 15 December 2018

From Stevenage, St Neots, Huntingdon, Peterborough, Grantham, Newark Northgate, Retford and Doncaster.

Enjoy all the pre-Christmas attractions of Scotland's beautiful capital city with travel aboard our luxurious Pullman train "The Spirit of the Lakes". Edinburgh is one of our most popular destinations and there is 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 from the train.

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 this all 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.

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 evening dinner preceded by canapés and Champagne will be served on the return journey.

Pullman First Class passengers will be served a breakfast bap followed by a selection of Tulip muffins on the outward journey and a savoury refreshment box followed by the cake of the day on the return journey. To accompany this, there will be a complimentary service of tea and coffee for both legs of the journey.

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.
