Visiting Edinburgh has never been easier via rail. Read on to see how your train trip can make it possible to easily take in the wonders of Scotland’s capital
People underestimate the convenience that railway travel can bring to any journey. For example, did you know that you can easily visit the far-flung, but must-see city of Edinburgh via rail?
London is the city that sees the most overseas visitors per year, and rightly so, but few tourists know that they can, by simply jumping on a train from central London, visit some of the most breath taking views and historical landmarks in the United Kingdom.
Take Edinburg for example. The historic city is an approximate 5 hour trip away from London via train, a trip that passes through some of the most scenic countryside on offer. Once you get to Edinburg, you can take in the sights of the Scottish Capital by beginning your journey at Old Town, and take a walk down the UNESCO Royal Mile, stopping to take in the wonders of St. Gile's Cathedral, or experiencing the wonders of the country's history at the National Museum of Scotland.
You can also visit the Edinburgh Castle, where you can take in the intriguing history of the Scottish Royal line. If you're looking for a more adventurous activity, you can experience the Scotch Whisky Heritage Centre, and find out just why the nation's favourite alcoholic beverage has become so world-renowned.
When you've finished with the historical views the city offers, you can always visit the Palace of Holyroodhouse, where, if you're lucky, you could catch a glimpse of the Queen, as this is where she holds state ceremonies when visiting Scotland.
If you feel that you'd rather take in the city more as a native than a tourist, you're welcome to wander through the breath-taking streets of Edinburgh, and take in the day-to-day activities of the locals.
When you've finished your exploration of the city, your journey back to London, or any of the other major UK or European cities, is just a relaxing train trip away, giving you enough time to catch up on some rest, before you continue your journey.
