The recently restored Flying Scotsman will be once again running tours around the UK this summer, giving people a chance to be on the world famous train.

The service is fine dining on wheels, with a famous locomotive hauling a lot of well fed travellers. The longer trips are, unsurprisingly, quite expensive, but there are four day trips looping around the countryside for lunch or supper.

The London trips are:

19th April – King’s Cross to Scarborough – from £305

19th May – King’s Cross to Edinburgh (Flying Scotsman from York) – from £349

31st May – Paddington loop via Chiltern Hills (lunchtime) – from £89

31st May – London Victoria loop via Surrey Hills (evening) – from £79

5th June – Paddington loop via Chiltern Hills (lunchtime) – from £89

5th June – London Victoria loop via Surrey Hills (evening) – from £79

18th June – London Victoria to the Lake District – from £349

23rd June – Scarborough to Ealing Broadway – from £139

30th June – Ealing Broadway to Scarborough – from £139

The full list of trips, including those outside London are here.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
