This is like asking how long is a piece of string without you at least tell us how long for and what you consider to be interesting. Time of year and adults / children in party would also be useful.

Yes. 100s. The railway network connects many of the interesting places.

How far do you want to travel and how much time do you have?

We can, but first you'll have to tell us what sorts of things you'd be interested in seeing.

There are 2,563 passenger railway stations on the Network Rail network. This does not include the London Underground, nor other systems which are not part of the national network, such as heritage railways.

Welcome to the Forum,

If you could tell us where this fits into your plans it would be helpful. How are you getting to Edinburgh (how are you entering/leaving the UK?) and where at you going afterwards? Is this a return trip from Edinburgh and back, or do you wish to leave Edinburgh, go on to "an interesting place" and then go elsewhere (your departure point)?

Please be a bit more precise. Long distance or an hour away? Day trip or overnight? There are literally 100s of possible destinations.
