Theatre breaks by rail from Edinburgh

Plane, train, or automobile? How do you get to London for your theatre break? We’d recommend travelling by train from Edinburgh — it has never been quicker or easier, and this mode of transport offers plenty of advantages.

Why drive from Edinburgh to London, through those busy motorways for over seven hours, when you can jump on the train from Edinburgh with selected journeys and be in London in just four and a half hours? That's enough time to kick back, enjoy a film, get stuck into that new novel, or relax and have a snooze.

Whether you want to see Les Miserables, Mamma Mia!, or the astonishing War Horse, and no matter if you want to stay at the luxurious 5-star Grange St. Pauls or the excellent value Holiday Inn Bloomsbury – we’ve got a fantastic theatre break with your name on it. Book a hotel, theatre and train break with us and you can save up to 50% on the train fare, leaving you with a bit more pocket money to spend on cocktails during the interval or a slap-up post-show meal.

Make travel worries a thing of the past on your glitzy theatre break — book a theatre trip from Edinburgh to London with Show & Stay.

Restrictions apply. Please see terms and conditions.
