Caledonian Sleeper – A Unique way to travel
About Caledonian Sleeper
Caledonian Sleeper is an overnight rail journey between Scotland and London, operated by Serco on behalf of Transport Scotland.
Running every night, apart from Saturday, guests are transported both north and south between London Euston and some of Scotland’s biggest cities, including Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Inverness, and more rural locations, such as Fort William. With staycations on the rise, this is the most convenient way for guests to reach their destination of choice.
A range of innovative ways to travel are offered including double and en-suite rooms as well as a Club Car boasting a menu of Scottish produce.*
*There is currently a reduced onboard catering offering, with the Club Car due to open again to guests in the coming weeks.

The beating heart of Caledonian Sleeper is the Club Car. Here, surrounded by interiors from renowned Edinburgh-based designer Ian Smith, guests can unwind while enjoying a menu showcasing the very best of Scottish produce.
Caledonian Sleeper is committed to serving delicious food using fresh produce with traceable provenance. Guests are taken on a culinary tour of Scotland, from classic dishes to contemporary delights.
Guest journeys start before boarding the train thanks to a series of station lounges across Scotland. Dedicated Caledonian Sleeper Guest Lounges all have accessible shower and toilet facilities, while Caledonian Sleeper hosts are on hand to serve drinks and snacks to guests ahead of and after their journey.
Caledonian Sleeper Guest Lounges are available at Dundee, Fort William, Inverness, Leuchars (St Andrews), Perth and Stirling.
We also share lounges with other operators at London Euston, Edinburgh Waverley, Glasgow Central and Aberdeen.
Caledonian Sleeper’s range of family products offer great value to guests travelling with children. Infants aged 0-4 (inclusive) travel free of charge provided they share a seat or room with an accompanying adult.
Special pricing is also available for families who are purchasing one, two or three rooms. These prices are automatically applied as part of the booking process. Additional benefits for families include free fruit for children on board and children under the age of 12 eat free from the on board menu when accompanied by an adult purchasing a meal.
Accessible Rooms offer a complete Sleeper experience while giving guests peace of mind as they journey between London and Scotland. Caledonian Sleeper has worked closely experts from The Shaw Trust to ensure that the offering is maximised, not only in the accessible rooms but throughout the train.
The accessible double room has direct wheelchair access to the Club Car through a wheelchair accessible gangway, and the Club Car also has dedicated wheelchair space, along with the Seated Coach.
Travelling with a Bike
Guests can travel with a bike on board Caledonian Sleeper without an extra cost, subject to availability. To book a bike, guests must contact the Guest Service Centre by noon the day before travel.
Pet Friendly Travel
Caledonian Sleeper regularly welcomes dogs and cats on board but will also consider carrying other pets too. Up to two pets can join a guest on board with a cleaning fee of £30 charged per room for any single journey.
Safe and flexible travel
Every possible step has been taken to make the service as safe as possible, allowing guests to rest easy as they travel overnight. Each room on board is cleaned and disinfected thoroughly ahead of guests’ arrival, with touchpoints on the train also cleaned frequently during service. Face coverings are required in public areas and in stations.
