Edinburgh Castle & The Royal Mile

Join the Northern Belle luxury train for a fascinating excursion to Scotland’s capital, including the magnificent Edinburgh Castle.

A fine dining experience awaits on the outward journey. Take your seat in the vintage carriage, which reflects the glamour of the 1930s “Belle” trains. Admire the intricate marquetry, plush fabrics and handcrafted murals.

Your liveried steward serves a delicious brunch, which is set with crisp white linen and bespoke china.

Sit back and relax on the journey to Scotland, admiring the ever-changing views through your picture window.

Arriving at Waverley Station you’ll set off on a guided coach trip through the city, arriving at the castle. Here you discover the fortress’s many features and exhibits, soaking up the panoramic views over the city. After your visit there is free time to explore the Royal Mile.

Return to the train for an effervescent champagne reception. The highlights continue on your journey home with a gastronomic four-course dinner, complemented by our sommelier’s choice of wine.
