The Edinburgh Festive Pullman I
Peterborough to Edinburgh
Departs – Wednesday 04 December 2019
From Peterborough, Grantham, Newark Northgate, Retford and Doncaster.
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 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 Princess 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 Peterborough should be at around 0630 with a break in Edinburgh of around three hours. Arrival back into Peterborough should be approximately 2230.
