Treat yourself to a taste of Scottish culture by taking an exciting trip from Birmingham to Edinburgh by train! You’ll travel in style by either Virgin Trains or CrossCountry high-speed commuter, both offering efficient travel times, flexible ticket fares, plus a number of onboard services and comforts to keep the journey running smoothly.

Once nicknamed the “Athens of the North”, Edinburgh is renowned for its jaw-dropping architecture, esteemed art galleries and historic New Town and Old Town districts. It’s a rather small city geographically-speaking, so you’ll have no trouble seeing its most popular sights on foot. These include Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace and the National Museum of Scotland. Looking for some family fun? Check out the 6-storey-high Camera Obscura and World of Illusions science center.
