Trains to Edinburgh

Speed towards the Caledonian capital of culture and comedy

Our website offers cheap fares on LNER trains to Edinburgh Waverley - with no booking fees!

In a 2022 study, Timeout found Edinburgh to be the best city in the world to visit, beating Berlin, Manchester, and New York. We may be biased, but we can certainly see why.

Framed by ancient volcanoes and hills, Edinburgh's history and culture are visible all along its cobbled streets.

Edinburgh Waverley is the second-largest railway station in the UK and as such serves as a local traffic hub offering train services to Glasgow, Aberdeen, and Inverness, as well as trains south to Newcastle, Leeds, and London.
