Where a NZ family of four, children aged 8 and 10 years travelling to the UK for the first time this summer. We had planned to do the over night train to Edinburgh spend three nights in Edinburgh then rent and car and spent 8 nights driving back to London.
The over night train with advanced purchase and 2nd class seats is a minimum of £120 each one way - that seems incrediably expensive. I know this includes transport and accomodation for one night - but is it worth it?
Any thoughts from people who have done it - do you actually get a good sleep or to you arrive the next morning exhausted/
Appreciate your thoughts.
