The perfect gift idea for the kids: Travel by sleeper train from London to Scotland with additional 'Hogwarts Express' experience

A deal from , 15. Oct. 2019 9:31 am

Hogwarts letters or not, you can take the train from London's buzzing metropolis, through the wilds of Scotland to Fort William upon the cosy Caledonian Sleeper.

Seated tickets are available from £50 per person and can be snapped up here or you can slash out for a sleeper cabin from £85 per person.

But what the kids would really love, is the additional journey from Fort William and Mallaig. Tread in the footsteps of Harry, Ron and the gang with this 2 - 2.5 hour train journey. Gaze in awe at the stunning Scottish countryside a journey made famous by the Harry Potter films.

The traditional steam train (which isn't dissimilar to that described in the books) departs twice a day and travels between May and September, with plenty of summer holiday availability as well. So whether you're looking for a day trip or something to make your Scottish staycation extra magical, this is something every budding wizard needs to try out!

Regular trains travel out of season but you can still venture over the famous arched bridge as seen in the movies.

This makes a great alternative to flying and also, for those who are already looking for Christmas gifts, could be the magical present your kids wish to find under the tree.
