What could well be the UK’s most expensive train trip has been announced, at a mere £44,995 per person — but that does get you 10 days of luxury in a steam train.

The 10 day trip is to mark the 10th birthday of the UK’s youngest steam locomotive, the A1 60163 Tornado. Blimey, has it really been 10 years already?

In October 2018, the super-rich will be able to spend nearly two weeks on a tour all around the UK in luxurious Belmond Royal Scotsman carriages.

It’s not just spent on the trains though, as this is a classic Grand Tour, with visits to stately homes and castles along the route that starts in Edinburgh, loops around Wales to Ffestiniog, via bath, Salisbury, Oxford and back up to Edinburgh.

Just 38 tickets are being sold for the ten carriages, which gives you an idea of the luxury on offer, which is not surprising as tickets cost as much as £44,995 per person, although if you don’t mind sharing a bedroom, you can get tickets for a mere £29,995 per person.

Network Railcard discounts do not apply.

SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE

The ianVisits website has been running now for just over a decade, initially as a news blog, later adding the events listings guide to the offbeat and geeky events in London.

Advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but 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 its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of the ianVisits website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what IanVisits provides, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    In this day and age, the only written important question, unfortunately, is who paid to build this locomotive In the first place?
