Top train destinations in Europe, for a flight-free summer

OK, so it’s not technically abroad. But in summertime the Scottish capital has enough star quality to convince you to linger in the UK. In the four hours, 15 minutes that it takes you to traverse the 534km between the Big Smoke and Edinburgh, you’ll pass beautiful architecture in York and Durham, wild coast and field upon field of fluffy sheep. On arrival, you can tuck into all of the city’s delights, from whisky drams at Johnnie Walker Princes Street to hikes up Arthur’s Seat and tours of Edinburgh Castle. Visit in August, and you’ll have the buzz of the Fringe Festival, International Festival and epic Military Tattoo to keep you busy, too.
