Royal Scotsman

Raise your 2018 railway game with an epic 14 day, 2,200 mile adventure across the whole of the UK.

If catching the Northern Line from Morden to High Barnet no longer gives you an illicit thrill, worry not. This phenomenally fancy train journey promises to transport you like royalty… if you’ve got a loose fifty grand.

At the front, a real proper steam engine.

Tornado Steam Train

Completed in 2008, it was the first new steam engine built in over 50 years, and this epic journey will celebrate its tenth birthday.

Behind, carriages with wildly fancy bedrooms.

Fancy dining rooms.

And lounges.

Royal Scotsman Lounge

The whole thing only carries 38 people. Exclusive!

It takes you on a massive round-trip around England, Wales and Scotland.

UK Rail Tour

From the Scottish Highlands…

To Devon and Cornwall in the south-west.

St Michaels Mount

Along the way, passengers visit pretty cities like Edinburgh, Bath, Oxford and York, and naturally stop off for private dinners in castles, with the odd five-star hotel stay chucked in, lest you start coming down with cabin fever. Although with thirty whiskies behind the bar and an on-board chef from some of London’s best restaurants, you’ll probably be quite comfortable on-board too.
