How many folk would potentially be up for a leisurely train ride (in 1st Class if price right!) up to Inverness? From what I can see East Coast's offering is very good. From a group social aspect that gives us loads of time to mingle and chat, and eat & drink of course! Then overnight it in Inverness & back to LHR or LGW (or other regional airports) on the Sun (flights around £35)?
East Coast do a Group Travel Service
• 10 or more people
• Best Fares guarantee – we’ll price match our web fares,
• Seat reservations can be made so you can sit together where possible
• All Railcards are valid against the relevant fares
• Save on onboard food with discounts on breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks or refreshments. Save 10% when travelling First Class and get a 20% discount with Catering Vouchers.
Happy to go with the flow....this is purely an idea :-)
Now that sounds like a jolly fine idea
Either 1st Class there and back or private jet one way and 1st Class rail t'other
Spending the night in a decent hotel up there also gets my vote over a day trip to the continent
