Two of the UK's most historic cities on one cheap train ticket - that's got to be a great deal. But there are more than ancient walls and castles to enjoy. The resurgent Scottish capital is one of the UK's prime cultural hotspots – not just with the eponymous festival, but all year round. And you can be there in just two and a half hours with the speedy LNER service.
