Edinburgh to London in under 8 minutes
To celebrate its 20th anniversary, Virgin Trains has released a speeded-up footage video showing the sights of a train journey from Edinburgh to London.
On the east coast, the Edinburgh-London journey covers the beautiful border town of Berwick-upon-Tweed and famous bridges spanning the Tyne between Newcastle and Gateshead.
“Train travel in Britain offers some stunning sights and we’d defy anyone to enjoy the same experience when stuck in motorway traffic or peeking through the tiny windows of a plane,” Danny Gonzalez, Marketing Director for Virgin Trains on the east coast.
Virgin took over the east coast route in 2015 and is now planning to bring regular Edinburgh-London journey times to around four hours, every hour, following introduction of its new fleet of state-of-the-art Azuma trains.
