Luxury trains have been enjoying something of a resurgence in their popularity lately. More and more travelers have made it their mission to celebrate the journey and not just the destination. Golden Eagle Luxury Trains is now capitalizing on this with the introduction of their new 14 day Best of Britain Tour. The company usually offers journeys across parts of Europe and Asia so this tour of Britain is a first.
The trip begins this October and celebrates the 10th anniversary of the Tornado, a historic steam locomotive. This locomotive will pull 10 carriages of the Belmond Royal Scotsman. The intricately designed luxury carriages can accommodate 38 passengers in 10 staterooms each of which is equipped with its own ensuite bathroom.
The tour will take guests across Edinburgh and the Scottish highlands, Chester in Northwest England, Hollyhead in Wales, Bath, Cornwall and Dorset in the west, Salisbury, Didcot and Oxford in South Central England, York and finally back to Edinburgh. Guests will have plenty to look forward to from the stunning scenery to spa trips during pit stops.
Prices start from $40,000 per person and bookings are currently open.
