Superbreak Virgin Trains East Coast Rail Breaks to Edinburgh

 

Choose Your Preferred Options for Your Break to Edinburgh:
Hotel Only, Hotel + Rail, Hotel + Flight

Example Itinerary: Hotel + Train from London to Edinburgh

You can select transport and book it together with your choice of hotel in one easy booking. You will need to select "Hotel + Rail" or "Hotel + Flight" depending on preference. For example, a departure London Kings Cross plus one night's accommodation in Edinburgh in a three star hotel, 2.5 miles from station is around £100 per person, based on two people sharing.

 

In the 'Leaving From' menu, if you enter 'London', and choose the first option 'London Any', this will give you the widest section of London train stations you can depart from, and the best deals. However, it may also mean that your outbound train station in London is different from your return station. For example, you might leave from London Euston and return to London Kings Cross. If this is an issue for you, simply select the required London train station in the 'Leaving From' menu.

 

Enter 'Edinburgh' in the 'Going To' menu, and it will come up with the city in a drop down menu. Enter your departure date - try to book as far ahead as you can for maximum flexibility. Departure times are usually from around 7 am, and enter a return time. (Note if your times are too early or too late for the train running you will get a message advising you that the journey times/ hotel are unavailable at this time, so change your times and try again.)

 

Click the 'search' button and wait for Superbreak to return you a list of hotels and rail options to match your criteria.
