Travelling between Edinburgh and London this December? Published: Thursday, 15 December 2016 10:28

Caledonian Sleeper services between London Euston and Edinburgh are extremely busy this festive season.

As a result, we have teamed up with Cross Country trains to offer an alternative option for those wishing to travel to/from Edinburgh on our busiest days between 21 December 2016 and 03 January 2017.

On days when our Edinburgh service is busy or fully booked, guests can book on to our quieter Glasgow service and Cross Country will transport Caledonian Sleeper guests between Edinburgh and Glasgow at no charge on the services specified.

Guests looking to use this option should book on our Glasgow service. Unfortunately we cannot offer this option to our guests travelling with us in seated accommodation.

This arrangement is only available on the selected departure dates below:
